National Lutheran Schools Week resources available

Jan. 27-Feb. 2 celebration includes request for videos, banners


ST. LOUIS, December 6, 2012—Resource materials designed to help The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) schools celebrate “National Lutheran Schools Week” Jan. 27-Feb. 2 are now available free online.
The materials are based on the 2013 National LCMS Convention theme, “Baptized for This Moment,” from Acts 2:38-39.

Students, educators, staff and families of LCMS schools are encouraged to create videos describing what the theme means to them. A panel of judges will select some of the videos to show at the LCMS convention, July 20-25 in St. Louis.

Also, each school may submit a baptismal banner – made during the Schools Week celebration – for display at the LCMS convention. Details for submitting the banners are included in the online resources.
“The theme for this year helps Lutheran schools connect with the 2013 Synod convention,” said William D. Cochran, director of LCMS School Ministry. “It is my hope and desire that National Lutheran Schools Week will help promote a celebration and awareness of Baptism.”
Available resources include daily devotions for students and faculty, two sermons, a poster, coloring pages, T-shirt designs, banner instructions, and a flier and “FAQs” about submitting a video for use during the LCMS convention.
