The 5close1 Thessalonians 5 5:1 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 12 We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. 15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. 25 Brothers, pray for us. 26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss. 27 I put you under oath before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers. 28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. (ESV) th and 8th grade classes at Redeemer Lutheran School completed their Science Fair projects on Thursday, November 21. From the beginning of the year, the students have been exploring the scientific process and working on projects to show how they understand that process. The students turned out some fabulous projects, and now have the opportunity to go on to the county science fair.
On Friday, November 22 judges came in to view the projects and judge how well they followed the steps. We are proud to announce the winners:
1st Place – Kobe
2nd Place – Adam
3rd Place – Heather
4th Place – Kassie
5th Place – Sophia
1st Place – Alexis
2nd Place – Jillian
3rd Place – Hunter
4th Place – Brandi
5th Place – Christopher
In addition to the Science Fair, the 5th grade is excited to be studying US History. Throughout the course of the year, we will be studying the Civil War through the present, and the students are most looking forward to the wars of the 20th century. In the spring, we will also be inviting veterans to come into the classroom and talk about their experiences.
Currently, the 5th grade class is reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. The students got to try Turkish Delight and talked about their own temptations. They will also be talking about the symbolism found in the book and how it connects to Christianity.
PARENTS IN PRAYER: Calling all parents! Parents in prayer will begin in the 2013-2014 school year. More information to follow soon!
Chapel Offerings: More information about our 2013-2014 Chapel offerings coming soon!

Crossing the Bridge to the Future…Together. Our members, school families and visitors cross many bridges to come to Redeemer whether year round or for a season. Bridges take us places. Bridges allow us to move past or over challenging terrain. Over time our bridges also need care and maintenance.
Redeemer Lutheran Church and School is facing some challenging terrain to cross. Christ and his cross are able to bridge any terrain no matter how rough the waves or how much the tide surges.
God chooses each of us to be stewards of his resources at Redeemer. We have some mission related capital improvements to address, a debt repayment bridge to cross that will free up future offerings, and a wealth of mission opportunities to span. All these will help us increase support for our mission of “reaching out into the community to be the best for the community.”
Before we cross this stewardship bridge, God is challenging us and supporting us in greater commitment to his word and sacraments. With this increased faith, let’s cross this bridge to the future…together.
