Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart
Gospel Value: Obedience
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.
Psalm 37:3-6
Dear OLR Families,
School is off to a fantastic start! Thank you to all of our parents who attended our Back to School
Night. We sincerely appreciate your partnership as we work together to ensure that your child has a
successful experience this school year. As I mentioned at Back to School Night, OLR has a fantastic
incentive to increase enrollment. If your family brings in another family to the OLR family, you will
receive a credit of one registration fee (a value of up to $375.00). So please . . . tell your friends and
family all about OLR!
This month’s Gospel Value is Obedience. When we hear the word “Obedience”, we often
automatically think of abiding by rules and procedures. But in the biblical sense, “Obedience” is so
much more! It is rooted in deeply in love and closely intertwined with our faith and the Gospel. Jesus
is the perfect example of Obedience as He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of His
death on the cross. Our Obedience is found by living out the Gospel in light of all that Jesus did for
us. By fully understanding our obedience to the Lord, we accept that it’s the foundation of our
spiritual journey.
We invite all of our OLR families to come to our Back to School BBQ on Sunday, September 28 from
3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at OLR. This will be a fun afternoon to enjoy a delicious home-style BBQ, catch up
with friends, welcome new OLR families, participate in some games and activities, and get the year
off to a sizzlin’ start! Tickets are on sale today ($25 per family of up to four people)! Take advantage
of this discounted family ticket price by purchasing your tickets before Sept. 15th!
Trust in the Lord,
Maureen Christensen
