Crusader Comments – November 8-13, 2021

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

“Shout Joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the LORD Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves, we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, and His faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 100.

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, this Psalm is a great reminder of why we can be thankful for all that God is and shall be. For those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord this Psalm takes on an extra special meaning. If you want to know more about this amazing and free personal relationship with Jesus, please contact myself, your teacher or your pastor.

Highlights:

* United Way is holding its 8th annual Coats, Hoodies, Hats and Gloves for Kids drive. A collection box is located outside the school office and will be available until November 19. Please donate new or gently used items. This is a great opportunity to teach our children to give back to our local community through helping others
* The Book Fair is finished. A special thank you to each of the ladies who helped staff the book fair each day and to each of you who purchased items. Out total in profit for the book fair was a little over $1,900. Praise the Lord. That is a little more than last year.
