Mark your calendars for Dec. 12th at 2 pm for the service.

WORKING ON A HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT? Make a list of items that you need then come to the SCRIP ladies in the library (at the east end of the fellowship hall) and get some gift cards for Menards, Home Depot or Lowes. You pay the face value of the gift card and our school will get 4% of this back from the merchants. If you purchase a gift card for $100, this would mean that our school would get a $4 rebate. If just 25 people did this, the school would receive $100. It’s a painless way to help out. Thanks to all who are already using SCRIP regularly. Check out the other merchants who participate in this program.
1. Is easy to use – Just purchase gift cards to pay for items you are already planning to purchase.
2. Doesn’t cost you a penny – You pay $25 for $25 worth of merchandise.
3. Gives a rebate to Good Shepherd Lutheran School and Preschool – Rebates range from 2% of the cost of the gift card to 20% of its cost depending on the merchant.
For more details about how to assist the school and preschool in this manner, check with the SCRIP ladies in the church library between services. A big thanks to all who have been faithful purchasers of SCRIP.

GOOD SHEPHERD LUTHERAN SCHOOL teaches phonics in order to prepare students for reading. The English language is based on the recognition of letters and the pronunciation of sounds because learning to read phonetically enables children to understand the grammatical aspects of the English language. Did you know that half of all English words have a Latin origin? The study of Latin enables children to develop and understand a wider range of vocabulary in the English language. We begin teaching Latin in 3rd grade. This is another of the many reasons to consider Good Shepherd Lutheran School for your child/children.
Our unique aspects of the curriculum include:
A Christ-centered Education
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE: programs will be offered for Good Shepherd Lutheran School and Preschool students beginning in the fall of 2015! More details will be available in coming weeks. If you have any questions, please speak to a school board member (Nancy Stepp, Jenny Higgins, Joel Kaldahl, Sara Hoyle, Mark Simnitt or Matt Phillips) or contact Pastor Maronde. It’s just another of the many reasons to consider Good Shepherd Lutheran School/Preschool for your children or grandchildren. Check the display at the school table in the narthex for more reasons.

Youth to serve Advent Dinner December 9th – We server an Advent Dinner in December as a fundraiser for both youth group and to offset the Higher Things Trip. This year we will need parent to assist with running the dinner as Andrew works at East Butler School in Brainard, NE. Marc Huff works in Omaha and Marc/Beth will have a new baby to be looking after. Parents took charge last year and it worked out great! We typically server taco salad for this dinner so it should be easy to pull together… especially if someone can brown out the 20 lbs of hamburger and make the taco meet a head of time. Partners of any and all youth… please let Andrew & Jeana Wood 402-369-2691 or email@example.com or Marc & Beth Huff 402-890-9752 or firstname.lastname@example.org know if you can help us out this year. Also we will be working with Dawn Renter to coordinate and make sure stuff is ready to go. Reminder – to any youth attending Higher Things conference… any one from your family that can assist with this dinner even if you can not will still count a credit towards the remainder of your higher things registration costs.
GS Youth go to the Movies! – Saturday Dec 12th TBA – Depending o the showtimes for the movie we all agree to go see probably at either Southpoint or Edgewood.

KNNA UPDATE: The board of KNNA has committed to build and operate the station without incurring any debt. On July 20th the city council approved the special use permit for the construction of our radio tower. The approval included an amendment to plant 6 trees, as requested by the Briarhurst West neighborhood association. Three of these trees have been planted and the remainder will be planted following construction of the tower; either this fall or next spring. In addition to the special use permit, the city requires a building permit. Approval of the building permit is ending some paperwork, but we expect approval of the building permit soon. Donations have been received that cover the cost of the tower. We are currently about $15,000 short of having enough money to start construction and finish the project. Once we receive donations for the cost of construction and some additional equipment, we can begin construction of the tower, the final step towards being on the air. Thanks to all for your support of the radio station and continue to pray for KNNA 95.7 FM. Right now you can access programming via the internet @www.live365.com.
