Movie night for middle and high school students. Bring a bean bag, blanket, or sleeping bag to sit on the floor while we watch movies. Dinner will be provided. You may bring a snack if you desire. We will meet in the chapel room in the Sunday School wing as the Chin will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall that night. Age appropriate movies will be shown. We will be having ice cream sundaes for dessert thanks to the Donaldson family!
Sunday, March 5th Depart around 1 pm
Atlanta Hunger Walk 5K benefitting Lutheran Services of Georgia. Come and help fight hunger in the metro Atlanta area. Mrs. Julie Donaldson is team coordinator. Middle and high school students may attend, siblings can only attend if a parent is in attendance. The money raised for LSG is important as some of the funds raised come back to our congregation in the form of a food grant which supplies or food bank. **Please note, due to a recent knee injury I will not be able to walk this year. We will need to ensure enough parents participate.
-The Orchard has invited us to return in the future. We will work with the Board of Education to determine if the Sunday School children could sing there one week. This is a good location to do Outreach.
-We plan to invite several LCMS churches to our Team Challenge event in March.
-Later this year we are planning a retreat for our combined Middle & High School group. Date/Location TBD.
Due to the amount of very young students, most off-site service projects are not appropriate. If you have an idea for one that can be completed at church, please let me know.
HUNGER WALK 2017!
Thanks to everyone who participated and/or donated to this excellent cause! We raised $909 as of the day of the race. Online donations are still being accepted until March 31st.

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake, Maam. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car."
Are my actions validating my words, that I am a CHRISTian?
