Back to School

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).

Although I am retired from teaching, my heart remains with teachers preparing classrooms, students purchasing school clothes and backpacks, parents filling calendars with sports and music schedules, and pastors and volunteers prepping for Sunday School and Midweek classes to begin again after summer break! These are exciting times!

Lutheran Women in Mission can support students and teachers with items available from the LWML store. Teachers can use a “Sticky Prayer Pad” and middle school and high school students will enjoy reading “Text Messages from God.” Encourage Sunday School classes to use the “Children’s Mite Box” to gather offerings for the 2023–2025 mission grants, including grants for at-risk children in North Dakota, special needs students in Wisconsin and Nebraska, high school youth in New Orleans, street children in Kenya, and for children’s homes in Tanzania. Donate to support these grants through your own Districts.

Happy teaching, learning, and serving!
