Monday Memo
Volume 1 Issue 27:  March 10, 2014
We will have two opportunities in the afternoon at 4:30 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. each Wednesday for four more weeks to center our attention on the last days and hours of Jesus’ life. These services provide us with an excellent opportunity to once again be reminded of Jesus’ unfailing love for us and of the certainty of our forgiveness. Please join us for these midweek services and let the Lord lead you again to marvel at his love for us. Also, between services we will hold a fellowship meal in the Ministry Center. 
 
In Christ,
Michael Peek
Principal

Family Chapel


Letters from God Each Wednesday we will learn truths about God from his "letters" to his children. This "letters" are letters that his disciples wrote to their congregations in the early Christian Church. Of course these "letters" were not simply  man made letters, but were inspired by the Holy Spirit and are "letters" in the Bible that were written for us as well. 

This week's service theme is "Seeing What's Inside." It is based on Romans 10:9-11. Pastor Kassulke will be our speaker.

H.E.L.P. 

Because of tuition costs, many students simply would not be able to afford to attend Redeemer Lutheran School. But, thanks to the H.E.L.P. Foundation and Arizona's Tuition Tax Credit Program, many of our students are able to receive tuition tax credit scholarships. How can you help? Stop by the school office and pick up a donation forms/brochure. Take it to any Arizona taxpayer and encourage them to designate their state tax dollars (up to $2,062) for Redeemer Lutheran School. These donations will be awarded as scholarships to our students! We need your help to spread the word! A contribution made from January 1, 2014 to April 15, 2014 could be used as a tax credit on either your 2013 or 2014 Arizona income tax return. Therefore, the deadline for postmarked donations is now April 15. You can donate online at www.HelpScholarships.org.
