Congratulations to Jackson Hirschfeld on placing

8th in the mile and 4th in the 4 by 8 relay at the

state meet this past Saturday.


Thank you parents! All year you have supported

the ministry at our school with supplies,

volunteering, driving for field trips, providing/

making costumes, and supporting our teachers

and staff as we strive to share Jesus with our

students, congregation, and community. We

could not do this without your help and support!

Thank you! Have a blessed summer!


The Board of Education interviewed three

very capable candidates for our preschool

teaching position that opens next year with

Mrs. Backhus having a baby and deciding to be a full-time mother. They

have chosen our own Pam Johansen as our preschool teacher for the 2015-2016

school year. We welcome Pam aboard and pray that her ministry will bring blessings to all of us.


Mr. Brauer has copies of our school plays on DVD.

If you would like a copy, please ask him. Extras can

be made and given out at our picnic on Sunday.

These are offered at a free-will donation. Thank



Thank you to everyone that made generous

donations to the People’s City Mission over

the last weeks. The donations were greatly

appreciated. If you wish to continue to donate and have the opportunity to

travel to Lincoln, further donations can be made to the Homeless Prevention Center

at 26th and O Street. Donations can also be made at any of the thirty

“Toss Boxes” located around Lincoln. These “Toss Box” locations can be

found at www.peoplescitymission.org, “Donate Items, Toss Box Program”.

Clothing donations are especially welcome, as they relieve crowded space at

landfills and provide an income source to the mission, as “rags” are bundled and

purchased by a clothing recycler.



Our Prayer Ministry for the week are our 8th grade graduates:

Cody Bender, Cole Gocke, Nathan Hanneman, Jackson Hirschfeld,

Peyton Johansen, Elisha Meyer, and Shelby Ziegler.

Please keep these families and the rest of our staff especially

in your prayers this week.
