APRIL 2020
"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants." Deuteronomy 32:2

It would be foolish to plant a seed and expect instantaneous results.  Although some would prefer such an easy option, we know that nurturing a seed requires commitment to the growing process and a firm belief that the seed will become the plant it is intended to be and bear the fruit it is intended to bear.

At Our Redeemer we are seed planters.  We have the responsibility of planting the seed of the Word of God daily into young hearts.  We have the privilege of watching the children grow and mature in their faith.

Jesus life, death and resurrection assure us of forgiveness, joy and eternal life.  We respond to this Good News with a heart full of love.  These children daily experience the joy that comes from knowing Jesus.

Our “little plants” are growing well fed and watered by God’s Word, taught by teachers and parents who model the love of Jesus.

The 4th quarter of this school year is not anything like what we had planned.  Our teachers have stretched their imaginations to deliver “school” to our kids while they are safely at home during this pandemic. 

We take comfort from the words of Jeremiah in the Bible, ”For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”  Jeremiah 29:11 

Our Jesus gives us certain hope that we can cling to.  He is our resurrected Savior and Lord.
May your Easter be Blessed,
