Glimpse of Grace

Prayer Squares, Choir Sing, and Strike Team Ring!

Posted by Jennifer Beasley on

Hello and welcome to another week of Glimpse of Grace. We have been blessed with celebrating Advent. As you may remember, the word Advent means "coming". Each week of Advent is preparing our students and school staff to patiently wait for the wonderful day of celebration, the birth of Jesus! On Wednesday the strike team rang, and the choir sang for the Advent Service, followed by good food and fellowship. 

The knitting group at Grace Lutheran Church made these beautiful colorful prayer squares that went home with our fifth- grade students. The fifth-graders have been talking about different kinds of prayer as well as writing their prayers in the classroom. The A.C.T.S. acronym encourages prayers to follow the format of Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication. The four-sided prayer square, knits (pun intended)  this idea together.  

Thank you to the generous knitting group of Grace Lutheran Church!

 The 'loving hand of God' is shared with our students and their stocking stuffing for the  Night Ministry. 

We are grateful for being able to be working with a wonderful ministry.  

The Walther Band performed a concert for the school. One of our parent volunteers wrote a recap for those who were unable to attend. You can read about it here.  We are always striving to catch glimpses of Grace so they can be shared with you and you can be reminded of the family you are part of here at Grace. 

Our Orchestra performed a concert at the Christkindlemarket. Joy to the world, the performance was absolutely beautiful. 

Our GPO hosted the Ladies Ornament Exchange.  It was a fabulous time for fellowship, fun, and ornaments! 

 And we finished out our week, with the fourth graders sharing their talents with each other! Among the talents was a break- dancing duo who pulled out lots of retro moves, including the moonwalk, a Bach piece on the violin, “Jingle Bells” performed by a recorder trio, several piano pieces, and a pop song performed on the kazoo.  What better way to end a week?!


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
