"It Takes A Village"

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”     –Romans 15:5-6

Grace and Peace to you from the Warrior Family! The school year is well underway! God is blessing us with a great start and outstanding students and families once again this year. I am excited to see how God is going to use this year to remind us how brightly His Light shines through Jesus and of our opportunity to “Let His Light Shine” in all we do.
Please consider the following food for thought! Did you know the 2007-08 average cost per student for public schools in the state of Nebraska was over $10,000? Did you know full-time child care currently ranges from $7,000-$10,000 per child, per year? Did you know this year the average cost per student at Lincoln Lutheran for 2009-10 is just over $6,500? Did you know family tuition income and church support for students at Lincoln Lutheran is just over $5,500? Did you know the Lincoln Lutheran Ministry needs support of approximately $1,000 per student to offer a quality education to students this year?

Lincoln Lutheran can’t successfully pursue ministry without a very broad foundation of support from the Warrior Family. The Warrior Family and traditions continue to strengthen as our community grows larger with the passage of time. What a blessing! Do you consider Lincoln Lutheran a mission? Do you believe Lincoln Lutheran is a mission worthy of your support? Do you believe Lincoln Lutheran is making a difference in the world? Have you considered how God might be calling you to help?

You can help support the ministry of Lincoln Lutheran in a variety of ways this year:
  1. Lift up the ministry in your daily prayers
  2. Share the Lincoln Lutheran story with your co-workers, neighbors, and friends at church
  3. Consider opportunities to volunteer at Lincoln Lutheran
  4. Consider an Annual sacrificial gift to support the ministry of Lincoln Lutheran – as we strive to be “The School of Choice” in this community – one student at a time.  (Donate On-Line)
  5. Consider supporting one of our annual events (Gala, Golf, Coming Home)
  6. Consider asking those in your realm of influence (family and friends) to consider supporting Lincoln Lutheran
  7. Share ideas with the Lincoln Lutheran Development Office about individuals, families, or business that might be interested in supporting our mission.
I selected the verse above because we are on a mission to equip our young people in Christ, together! It takes a village to do this work! The more people we have involved, the more ministry we can accomplish! Will you consider supporting at least 1 student at Lincoln Lutheran this year for $1,000? Some are able to do more, others less. Consider how God might use you to impact the world through the Warrior Family!

God Bless You! Thank you for all you do!
