Zion schedule for National Lutheran Schools Week

[January 26, 2013]
Zion Lutheran School in Lincoln
is participating in National Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 27-Feb. 2,
with special activities each day and an open house on Thursday. The
theme for National Lutheran Schools Week is "Baptized for This
Moment," based on Acts 2:38-39. This theme was chosen to build on
the 2013 synodical convention theme in an effort to get schools
involved with the convention theme early in the year.
As explained in a release from the school:
"Our sins are forgiven
in the death and resurrection of Jesus. We have received the gift of
the Holy Spirit. We can say, with Luther, ‘I am baptized’ and know
that ‘all is well’ and God will never forsake us (AE 6:365). In
strength given by the Spirit we bear witness of Christ's victory
over death. God's promises are sure. With compassion that comes from
the mercy we have received in Christ, we bind up wounds and bring
living hope in Jesus. Baptized into His body, we live together in
love, reflecting Christ's love for us."
