Life Quote from Lutherans For Life - Sinful selfishness made human flesh an agent of death. Jesus Christ’s resurrection claims our bodies as instruments of life again. Since abortion and assisted suicide do not bring life, they cannot come from God—or from God’s people. Receiving life as His gift sometimes means waiting (Isaiah 25:9), but this wipes away tears from every face (Isaiah 25:8)

In our prayers we give thanks that Anna Gain accepted our call to be designated as a teacher at our school. Along with Caleb Betts, we will have two new teachers at our school. Let us know of available apartments for rent or if someone is interested in boarding. 

Protect Minor Girls - Abortion advocates in the Illinois legislature have introduced bill HB 1797 to repeal The Parental Notification of Abortion Act. Repealing the parental notification law will put young people at risk, protect sexual predators and human traffickers, usurp the rights of parents, and end the lives of countless unborn children. You may contact your legislators now and ask them to vote NO on HB 1797. To find your Illinois legislator names, phone numbers and email addresses here:
