Well, we had the first snowfall of the year!  It actually stuck to the ground, producing that beautiful blanket of whiteness over grass and leaves that probably still need a final cut and removal.  The fact that it came on October 25th might be why some are saying that we’re inline for a lot of snow this winter.  Regardless of how accurate that forecast may or may not be, I personally felt blessed to be given another vivid reminder of this Scriptural truth:  that before God, we stand as pure as snow before him thanks to the cleansing blood of our Savior Jesus.  It’s a picture I look forward to every year.
 
Today is a much different scene.  It’s sunny and bright; the grass is still quite green and in need of mowing; and the temperature is well above the point of any snowfall occurring.  This, too, is a picture of God’s great love for us.  The beauties of his creation are a reminder of his love, which he showed especially by sending his Son to be that Savior from sin.
 
In fact, each and every day has some kind of vivid reminder of God’s grace.  Rain reminds us of the word producing its desired effect.  Clouds remind us of heaven, perhaps, or Jesus’ ascension.  Storms are reminders of the power found in nature, as God designed it, which keep us humble.  On and on it goes.
 
Yes, I always look forward to the first snowfall of the year.  I don’t necessarily look forward to the twenty-first snowfall of the year (or beyond).  More than anything else, you and I can always look forward to another day of grace on earth…and then the day when we will behold the beauties of our heavenly home!
 
I can picture it now!
 
“Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it.  Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.” 
Psalm 96:11-12

DISCOUNT CARDS AVAILABLE

I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a challenging year filled with constant change in numerous ways.  Over the years, Friends of the Lancers (FOL) was the group responsible for managing concessions for all MLHS Athletic events to raise money for non-budgeted expenses. The money raised from concessions in addition to the money raised by a small group of volunteers working concessions at Lambeau Field for Packer games and events, usually amounts to approximately $20,000/year to help offset the costs of uniforms, equipment, and other school wish list items every year. 

Due to the inability to have concessions this year, FOL will be selling two different discount cards.  Choose from either a Local/Dining or Festival Foods/Buffalo Wild Wings discount card or both. Discount cards can be purchased at the school office or from the SCRIP office or  purchase ONLINE. If you purchase online they will be mailed to you. The cost for either option is $20 each.

  • The LOCAL/DINING DISCOUNT CARD offers free or discounted items at local restaurants, as well as Family Video and Piggly Wiggly.  Valid thru 8/31/2021
  • The FESTIVAL FOODS/BUFFALO WILD WINGS DISCOUNT CARD offers 6 discounts at Festival Foods and 3 discounts at Buffalo Wild Wings.  In addition, with each purchase of this card, a can of food will be donated to the local food pantry.  Valid thru 12/31/21
  • Remember to purchase SCRIP cards/certificates for the businesses and restaurants on the discount cards -  A&W, Jimmy Johns, McDonalds, Big Apple Bagels, Cousins Subs, Luigi’s Pizza, Dairy Queen, Lakeshore Sub & Pizza, Fork & Knife Restaurant, PK Beans & Cream, Papa Murphy’s, Pizza Ranch, Piggly Wiggly, Buffalo Wild Wings, Courthouse Pub and Festival Foods.  By using SCRIP at these participating businesses and restaurants you are earning MLHS SCRIP tuition/education credits while supporting Friends of the Lancers!

Thank you for supporting MLHS!

ESTATE PLANNING
Manitowoc Lutheran High School is offering FREE one-on-one coaching for estate planning. Estate planning (also called a will or trust) is a collection of documents that specify how you want your money and other assets distributed after your death, making it easier for your loved ones to handle your affairs during a time of grief.

This FREE one-on-one coaching is confidential and is avaiable to MLHS families and friends.

Individuals will be responsible for paying attorney fees. Please note that due to a generous donation, the first 20 people who complete the one-on-one coaching through SFC will be reimbursed up to $500 for the attorney fees.

This is simply a gift from the MLHS Foundation to you and your family for your love and support of Manitowoc Lutheran High School.
