EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL
Faculty members are working on various continuing education courses during the summer months. Various maintenance issues are being addressed at church and school. Mr. Groth and family have moved into their new residence at N5540 Jordson Coulee Road, West Salem. Mr. Groth’s phone number is (608) 567-9263. Thanks to all who helped with the move. Installation of Mr. Groth will take place on Sunday, August 10. Education Committee and Church Council approved a “respect” policy for the school handbook outlining loving, Scriptural procedures for students to treat each other and those in authority with Christian respect. This will be posted in the handbook and other publications. Mr. Ted Kufahl has kindly agreed to continue as our Sunday School superintendent for the coming school year. The theme for our 125th anniversary celebration was approved – “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
