Lutheran schools are full of joys: the first day of school; the individual gifts and personalities at every grade level; the servant hearts of staff; the commitment of congregations and communities; the involvement of parents; the excitement of a team victory or a school performance; ministry milestones and anniversaries; graduations; and many more.
The fullness of joy lies in the Gospel-centered confession and proclamation of the Lutheran school. Paul’s letter to the church at Thessalonica begins by expressing the joy of Jesus:
“For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction” (1 THESS. 1:4–5).
Paul’s proclamation of Christ continues through the letter and culminates in his exhortation, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 THESS. 5:16–18).
The concluding verses of this epistle will permeate and direct the ministry and message of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in 2019 and beyond.
The concluding verses of 1 Thessalonians have been chosen as the theme for the 2019–2020 Chapel Talks resource. It is appropriate that the children and families at Lutheran schools join in the churchwide fullness of joy in Jesus.
While Lutheran school students experience joy in many different contexts, the most JOY-FULL time and place is in worship together. In the Divine Service and school chapel worship, the full joy through Jesus is proclaimed. Children are blessed to hear the message of joy to the shepherds of Bethlehem (LUKE 2:10); the joy of the cross (HEB. 12:2); and the joy of the resurrection (MATT. 28:8).
May the Word be taught in Lutheran school classrooms; read, sung, and shared in worship; lived in various school experiences and events; shared with families, and witnessed to the community and the world.
“Rejoice always!” (1 THESS. 5:16).
The 8th Graders are helping to plan a special Veteran's Day chapel on November 6th. 8th Graders will be hosting a light breakfast before Chapel for the veterans. If you'd like to invite the veterans back to your class after Chapel, feel free. I'm sure they'd love to visit and share their stories. Otherwise the special event will end when Chapel ends.
Please put the RSVP slips in my mailbox (Tracy Hess). Additionally, if you get any pictures of veterans, please forward them to me.

For more than 175 years, St. John's Lutheran School has been dedicated to providing a Christ-based education that produces better students and Christian citizens. This is accomplished through the partnership between educators and parents.
Our school provides an exceptional Christ-centered education for preschool through 8th grade, including a magnificent child-care program. At St. John's,, we don't want to keep Jesus isolated only to religion class. Instead, we strive to incorporate Christ into every part of our day. St. John's is fully accredited by the National Lutheran School Association, and our teachers are all certified.
