/Thursday Notes: December 20th, 2018

Christmas is here…ready or not! 

Christmas marks the day grace arrived on earth. What a gift! We look at this gift baffled and in awe that it is ours to keep, and we carry it with us everywhere as our greatest hope. 

The manger is the ultimate symbol of hope. A broken world so desperately in need of love received it and the shepherds felt joy that night like we still do this Christmas. Jesus’ arrival meant peace had come. It meant forgiveness and atonement had come. His life meant we had life also. 

As you spend the next week among family and friends, we pray that you feel the love of Christ in all that you do. We know Christmas can be hectic and busy, but in the midst of it all, may you remember that He is Emmanuel, God with us. In all that we do, everywhere that we go, He is still the reason. Take time to slow down, be present and enjoy the gift of grace that we celebrate this week! 

Merry Christmas from all of us at LCA! We love you!!

In keeping with our tradition, Team LCA is now collecting donations for our Teacher Gift Fund! For those of you who may be new to our school, every year we collect funds in hopes of blessing our Teachers and Staff with a special Christmas gift….the gift of cash! No need to worry about what gift to give and any amount is appreciated! In return for your generosity, you can also earn service hours for your donation -1 service hour for every $10 dollars (limit of 7 hours). No need to worry if you cannot contribute monetarily, we still need volunteers for our Gift Wrapping cart at the mall!! The funds raised from this will being going into our gift fund as well. Your student will be coming home with a form for turning in. We will also have additional forms in the office. I’m also attaching our flier and form so you may print it out at home as well.
