Excitement was the order of the day yesterday as we dressed up, played games, welcomed our families, said hello to Martin Luther, and heard how we are a little bit like pumpkins.

In December we have a really wonderful event that is part fundraiser, part friendship time among the parents, and part learning activity for the children. It is our Christmas Store! The Christmas store works like this; we collect donations of new and gently used items that the children can purchase for their shopping list of family and friends. When the store is set up, the children have a shopping assistant who will help them select gifts, wrap them and send them home ready to put under the tree for Christmas Day. The children take great joy in being gift givers, the parents who volunteer enjoy friendship with other parents, and funds are raised for the ELC. It’s a win, win, win!
There will be a meeting on Friday, November 8 @ 9:15 for all of those interested in participating by volunteering to make the Christmas store a reality. There are a variety of jobs available for all gifts and talents. Come see how you can be a part of the Christmas store.
In chapel this week, Pastor Reinke talked about the 8th commandment which tells us not to tell lies. He told a story about some people who told lies about Jesus, while Jesus always told the truth.
The month of November will be devoted to learning about the character quality of Thankfulness.
