This week has been a week of prayer for members of the RLS family and our brothers and sisters on the coast. There are several family members in our RLS family battling illness and recovering from surgery. Pastor Jonathan Naumann, now serving in the Dominican, suffered a heart attack this week and continues to be in ICU recovering. There are extended RLS family members battling Hurricane Florence and working to protect their homes. Please join us in asking for the Lord's blessing and protection in these times of trouble, remembering our theme Psalm this year:
WELCOME AND WELCOME BACK TO OUR REDEEMER LUTHERAN SCHOOL FAMILY. Classes start on Wednesday, August 22! The faculty and staff of RLS are ready for the start of a new year, and pray the Lord will continue to watch over us, protect us, and lead us to a productive school year.

We are a family, and families enjoy getting together for some fun. We are grateful to share special moments together and create new memories.
Our RLS family is part of the larger Family of Christ. Our school is all about Jesus and His love for us, His people. Looking for opportunities to share our blessings is a way of life for God's people, and with the devastation that has faced so much of our country, there are plenty of ways we can help.
For the month of September we will be collecting money for Luther South Academy, a high school in Houston that had more than 4 feet of water in its building. Soon, other regions of the USA will need assistance and we will be ready to serve. Please keep these brothers and sisters in Christ in your prayers. It is easy to lose hope in times of chaos, when it seems you've lost everything. Take a moment to consider how you would feel if you were in their shoes. What would you want people to pray for? How would you want people to help? What could someone say to make you feel better?
Thankfully, we are not in their shoes, we are dry, comfortable, and able to reach out an offer what we have be given, sharing it with others in need. Let's give generously to our friends, and bring Jesus to them.
