Parents’ Day Out
is in session & accepting new enrollments!

Under the new directorship of Erika Duenwald, we have a solid plan in place and are doing our very best to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children.

Our program runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is designed to give parents an opportunity to run errands, get a few chores done, work a part-time job, or just relax and rejuvenate for a few hours. You choose your days!

We provide a safe, nurturing program where your child will have fun while socializing with children their age. We offer a Christ-centered environment, Bible stories, crafts, music, and interaction with our wonderful loving staff.

  • My faith journey
    by Jim Jones on October 22, 2020 at 8:00 am

    One thousand, nine hundred and seventy-three miles. That’s the distance between Lodi, Calif., and Los Fresnos, Texas. It’s a distance I drove twice with a father and his children—two little Lutherans facing deportation. Wilian (last name withheld) and his children, Darel, 5, and Madelyn, 3, belong to my congregation, St. Paul Lutheran in Lodi. On The post My faith journey appeared first on Living Lutheran.

Reading for Thursday, October 22
Isaiah 14:3-8

When the Lord has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, you will take up this taunt against the kind of Babylon:
How the oppressor has ceased!  How his insolence has ceased!
The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of rulers,
that struck down the peoples in wrath with unceasing blows,
that rules the nations in anger with unrelenting persecution.
The whole earth is at rest and quiet; they break forth into singing.
The cypresses exult over you, the cedars of Lebanon, saying,
“Since you were laid low, no one comes to cut us down.”

Gospel for Sunday, October 25 – Reformation Sunday
John 8:31-36

Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves to anyone.  What do you mean by saying, ‘You will be made free’?”

Jesus answered them, “Very truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.  The slave does not have a permanent place there forever.  So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.”
