Trinity Lutheran School – April 2017 Newsletter Article.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
In Martin Luther’s explanation of the first commandment he states that “We should fear, love and trust in God above all things.” The things in our lives that we trust in or love can easily become gods to us. Such is our human sinfulness. Think about how trusting only in God goes against our human nature. It is no wonder that we break this commandment continually.
Saint Paul in Romans 8:28 reminds us that God “has our backs”. Through faith we know that God is in charge and that He has our best interests in mind. After all, God sent His Holy Spirit to give us faith in the first place. He sent His Son to pay for our sins. Jesus rose from the grave that we might have eternal life with Him.
Satan, the world, and our sinful flesh continually try to convince us that we must do it ourselves. That God demands works for righteousness, or that God does not even exist. The last thing they want is for us to fear, love and trust in God. Thankfully God gives us His word, and that word reassures us of God’s love for us.
In April the children and staff will be returning from Spring break. April 14th is Good Friday and school will not be in session. I pray that you will have a blessed Easter celebration. On the 28th the Kindergarten through eighth grade will be going on a field trip to History Colorado in Denver.
May is just around the corner. On the 1st through the 5th the school will be observing Teacher Appreciation Week. May 12th, K-8 will be in Parker for the Lutheran School Field Day. The 19th is the date of the End of the Year Barbecue. Eighth grade graduation will be May 21st, following the 8 a.m. Divine Service at Trinity Lutheran Church. There will be a reception immediately after. The school will be ending with a fun day on the 25th and the last school day is the 26th.
If you know of anyone who voices concerns about their children’s education, and whose children are not currently attending Trinity Lutheran School, please suggest to them that they visit with Principal Kevin Rhode at the school for information about what Trinity offers. Word of mouth referrals to friends and family are ways that you can support the ministry of our school.
We welcome anyone who would like to stop by and see what we offer the children of our community. If you would like to visit with us about placing your child in Trinity please call to make an appointment. It is never too late to enroll your child in Little Lambs, Trinity Early Learning Center or for kindergarten through eighth grade.

As always please keep our students, staff and school board in your prayers.
