2nd Quarter Chapel Offerings Coming to an End

There is still time this week and next to give via your chapel offerings to our two local food banks, St Marks in Monroeville and Hessen Cassell. The holidays can be a tough time for many families, even in this robust economy. All the help and money stays here in our community. Please help us end this project strong so we can bless others in our community.

Exciting New Adventure Coming!

Yes, we're going on an exciting adventure in January! Next month we begin our next chapel offering project and we're going to Peru! Lutheran Hour Ministries sponsors an annual Gospel Adventure mission project. Last year it was Madagascar and the year before that Cambodia. This year it's Peru! We're so excited because while we're gathering chapel offerings, the kids will learn about Peru and God's love for them. During National Lutheran Schools Week we'll have a special weeklong focus on Peru and its people as well as a heightened campaign for chapel offerings for the week. The majority of the Lutheran schools in the area are also participating in this same project. Can you imagine the impact all these kids will have! It's going to be amazing! I pray that you will talk to your kid about this project and prayerfully consider giving generously to it. Watch for information to come after the holidays.

Volunteering at SJE

Please note the info in bold below and see where you might be able to help/volunteer. If you have not yet volunteered this year, please consider doing so.


**Please note that your volunteer hours this year (18-19) will reduce or eliminate up to $400 of the tuition increase/student set for the 19-20 school year.***

SJE Make Up Day

As of November 15th, SJE has its second day to be made up due to the weather closure. I have looked at the calendar and we will make up November 15th on February 15th. That day will be a planned e-learning makeup day.


February 18th (President's Day)is the only other makeup day we have available to make up a snow day this year. If we do need to use Feb 18th, it will be a parent drive day with school in session. After that, the rest of the days will be added to the end of the school year in May.

The Lutheran SGO for SJE

It's that time again to have a conversation about our SGO. We have many families that have filled out applications requesting funds to assist with their school tuition. This is a great way to help them. It allows the donor to donate funds to the SGO and receive a 50% Indiana state tax credit. If your donation is large enough, you can carry it over up to 8 tax years. Our need this year as of now is $19,500.00, of which we already have $2000.00. Please consider giving. There are so many ways to do so and more are coming in early 2019. Please visit the website for more info.
