“We need a float!” Those words were uttered several weeks ago when our School Outreach Committee met. The School Outreach Committee, which was formed recently to let our community know about the amazing resource we call “St. John’s School,” helped organize our effort in the “Nodine 4th of July Parade”. We did have a “float,” along with nearly 20 parade walkers. But the real floats, the root beer variety, started after the parade was over. Since we had never done it before, we didn’t know what to expect. But at one point a line stretched almost 50 feet, as thirsty parade goers took advantage of the free beverages. Our high school students quickly dispensed with 10 tubs of ice cream and 8 gallons of root beer. I hand-delivered a couple of floats when an appreciative visitor commented about what a great school we have and even gave a donation! This effort was simply a way to greet our community and let them know about our ministry and school. We are looking to let others know about the opportunity to have children enrolled in full time school where they can learn not only about the academic pursuits but also participate in being grounded in the knowledge of our Savior. Our students are not only expertly prepared for life after grade school (aka “High School”) but for life after earth (aka “Heaven”). And they are obviously also prepared for serving root beer floats to over 200 people. We still have openings in all our school classes including pre-kindergarten. Pass that along. We’ll have another “float” coming soon!
We love him because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
