I hope summer is off to a great start for all of you. It has been fun to see many of our students at VBS this week.

Good News to Share! Back in May, Ms. Watson announced that she would not be returning to teach at Grace next year. We are pleased to announce that her situation has changed and she will continue as our 3 rd grade teacher. Welcome Back, Ms. Watson!

June 30 th brings an end to our fiscal year. Please make sure all contribution payments and outstanding fees are taken care of by this date. I also ask that you consider an end of year gift to the Annual Fund for Grace School which supports general needs of the school. Payments can be brought to the school office or made online here .

Have a blessed summer!
Bill Koehne, Principal

Join us for GLOW— informal, outdoor summer worship on Wednesday evenings at Grace
Throughout the summer, we gather each Wednesday evening for GLOW — Grace Lutheran On Wednesday. It's a new opportunity for fellowship and worship. 

Join us outside the Bonnie Brae doors at 6:30pm for ice cream sundaes. Cross+Gen worship begins on the front lawn at 7pm with FAITH5, songs of praise, scripture, and a message. Bring chairs or blankets to sit on, if you like. We will conclude each week by 7:30pm. (In case of inclement weather, we will gather inside the atrium.) 
No GLOW on July 3. GLOW continues through August 7.

GLOW is all about comfort--come as you are! GLOW is also all about Jesus--who calls us to shine our light. Bring your whole family, come on your own, or invite your next door neighbor! And if you're running late, come whenever you can get here--there will be plenty of ice cream and plenty of music, prayer, and fellowship.
