Jazz Band Tour

On March 5th, 2018, the Lincoln Lutheran Jazz Band toured the Lutheran schools of Lincoln.  This experience allowed jazz band members to share their musical talents and Warrior pride to elementary students.  While visiting Messiah, Trinity, Faith, and Christ, they were able to interact with many students varying in ages. Fifth graders incorporated their musical talents by talking about their own personal instruments with Lincoln Lutheran students who play in the same section.  Other students got to learn more about instruments. One girl asked how heavy the tuba was and was invited to come up and try to lift the instrument herself. Elementary students got to see what it would be like playing in a high school band and joining the Lincoln Lutheran community. The jazz band grade school tour is a positive experience for both the high school and elementary students.  Christa Grimpo, a freshman, says, “It was so fun to see all the kids enjoying what we were playing and getting excited about the music”.

On March 10, 2018, the Lincoln Lutheran Jazz Band joined the Community Outreach Team for a servant event at the Lancaster Rehab Center.  Sophomore, James Admiraal did most of the organizing for the event.

Lancaster Rehab Center Activities Director, Kelly Zetocha stated, “I would like to thank you and the students for Saturday’s performance.  The residents really enjoyed it! I wanted to share with you some positive feedback. Our receptionist mentioned to me how polite and respectful the students were as they passed through the lobby.  She also said that multiple residents and their family members complimented on not only the performance, but also how interactive and kind the students were. Please thank the band members and volunteers who helped with the craft!  They represented your school well.”

Lutheran Schools of Lincoln Present: Dr. Micah Parker

Click to read full article

Lincoln Lutheran would like to extend a special invitation to the families within your ministry. On Wednesday, January 24th at 6:30 pm, the Lutheran Schools of Lincoln will host Dr. Micah Parker in the Lincoln Lutheran Main Gym, to share a message of trust with parents and youth. We believe listeners 4th/5th grade and older will benefit most from his message, but all ages are invited.

 

Information about Dr. Parker:  

  • He has had a chance to speak to thousands of adults and youth during his 20 year speaking ministry.
  • His message connects with the listener as he shares his personal testimony about how extreme adversity in his life was used by God to achieve a larger purpose.

How Dr. Parker got started speaking:

"God blessed me with an unexpected and incredible adversity that helped shape my original message. My personal testimony is about how to truly trust Jesus Christ with your entire life, regardless of the circumstances. After taping a chapel service I did at Concordia University NE about my experience, I mailed the recording to friends and family who were praying for me. That talk was taken to church or given to friends who were also dealing with an adversity. People heard the tape and asked me to come tell more of the story. When people would ask me to come back and speak, I'd respond with, 'You heard my story; that's all I've got.' As a result, I developed many more talks. That was 19 years ago. Since then, I've been blessed to speak in 28 different states and Canada to over 600 groups, ranging from ONE to 30,000. I've spoken in a huge arena, for Christian companies, large educator and administrator conferences, state/district/national youth gatherings, at countless churches and schools, in a cow pasture, and in prison; each has been a blessing!"

His Mission:

  • Share how God can use an ordinary man to get through extraordinary circumstances.
  •  Motivate with humor and Biblical truth towards action in a relationship with Jesus.
  • Equip Christians of all ages to glorify God despite the challenges of this world.

Dr. Parker will be sharing a 45-60 minute talk beginning at 6:30 pm on January 24th in the Lincoln Lutheran Main Gym. There is no cost for families to attend this event.

Prompted by seeing homeless people along the street, 7th grader Breanne Blair collected coats and hats for those in need.  Bre made posters that were distributed around Lincoln Lutheran as well as at her parents' work places.  In less than a week's time, seven large bags full of coats and hats were collected.  Those bags were donated to the People's City Mission.  Breanne and her Religion-7 teacher Lyle Ziems dropped off the coats and hats at the Shelter on West "O".  Breanne was warmly greeted by PCM staff members Charity & Nikki.  Charity even gave Breanne and Mr. Ziems a tour of the facility.

PCM Communication Director Nikki Oswald said the following in an email to Mr. Ziems: "It was delightful to meet Bre & hear her story of why she gives. She is encouraging and inspiring and I know with her heart, she will do great things (she already is)."  

With a tear of appreciation in her eye, Nikki interviewed Breanne.  Check out the video of that interview posted by Nikki on the PCM Facebook page!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tc-jmCc9t4Y&feature=youtu.be

Great job of sharing the love of Christ with others, Breanne!

Breanne is the daughter of Keith (Kenny) & Jenny Blair.
