New Family Newsletter!

We value our families at St. Michael and want to provide you with the resources you need to help raise your kids in Jesus.


One tool to help you do that is this newsletter. You can expect to receive this newsletter on a monthly basis. At first, it will be a little quicker than that since you might find some use for this while your kids are home from school.


I hope you and your family are home and safe. Remember during this time that Jesus loves you! He has done some pretty amazing things in the past. This virus is certainly something that isn’t a problem for Him.


I hope you are able to spend some quality time with your kids during this time. Join us for worship online. Do the lessons with your kids at home. And enjoy your new Family Newsletter as a gift to you from your family at St. Michael Lutheran Church.


You are special treasure to God!

Homeschooling in Unusual Times

Hi, I’m Jennifer Powell, a fellow member of St. Michael and homeschooling mom. I’ve been homeschooling our three children for the past five years. When Pr. Dave asked me to write something to encourage all of you who have been unwittingly forced into homeschooling, I thought, “What do they need to hear? What do they want to hear? What is gnawing away at them as they ponder the next several weeks home with their children?”

Some quotes from the article:

  • I wouldn’t say I “enjoy” homeschooling as much as I am energized by the daily interactions with my kids, the love and support we show for each other, and reading to them the awesome books our curriculum recommends.
  • What I’m going to suggest instead is this: how can you use these coming weeks to better connect with your children? How can you improve your relationship with them? What activities can you engage in to further their knowledge (and they may not even know they are learning!) and have fun?
  • The most important advice that I’ve given to those who have asked is don’t stress about this.
