Isaiah 40:31 “…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;…”
Issue No. 22                                                     February 27, 2020


Lent, a very meaningful time of the church year, began yesterday with Ash Wednesday.  We now have entered the forty days of Lent, culminating in Holy Week and the greatest celebration, Resurrection Day, which is another name used for Easter.  We don’t usually say Resurrection Day because we, as Christians, know that there is the day coming when Jesus will return to give all believers, dead and alive, new glorious bodies to live in the new heaven and new earth forever.  This is also referred to as Resurrection Day or Judgment Day.  May these days of Lent be a time where you know for certain that Jesus is your Savior and if you don’t, to talk to a Christian, who can share the good news of salvation.


Thank you, again, Kondybko family!!!!  Mrs. Kondybko handed me an envelope with $87.00 in it.  Yes!!

$87.00 from the plastic bottles you’ve brought in!!  Obviously, I’m going to say, “Keep them coming!” and “Thank you, everyone.”

Chapel offerings for this quarter are going to help the people of Puerto Rico.  At the end of the quarter we will send the monies collected to the Gandara’s Center, where it will be used directly to help the people of Puerto Rico. The following is from the agency called Gandara Center:

Gándara’s Emergency Help Drive for Puerto Rico is now a Statewide Effort

The earthquake on January 7th  killed at least one person, injured at least nine others, collapsed buildings, and has caused a power outage that has left thousands in Puerto Rico without electricity or drinking water. With the recovery from Hurricane Maria in 2017 still ongoing, relief efforts have taken on even greater importance. Even the smallest donation will make an immediate impact!




The cost of the yearbook is $15.00.


As in the past, we will again be giving the students an opportunity to receive their yearbook at a discount. For each ad or sponsorship they sell, regardless of size, they will receive $5.00 off of the price of their yearbook. Sell three ads and you will receive your yearbook for free!!!

We need sponsors and advertisers to keep our yearbook costs down. Asking friends and relatives that own businesses is a great way to start. Also, check with your doctor and your dentist. Attached to this messenger is a contract for your sponsor or advertiser to use.  Please have them enclose their business card. Sponsorships are a great way to congratulate a graduate or let your child know how proud you are of them.  Costs for ads are as follows:
