Visit TechEd this weekend!

Joining a nationwide celebration to raise awareness for Career and Technical Education Month®, or CTE Month, the Lakeside Lutheran TechEd department will host an open house during the Lutheran Elementary School Basketball Tournament at the Lakeside Lutheran campus this weekend.

On Saturday, Feb. 16, from 11-3 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 17, from 1-3 p.m., visitors to the school’s TechEd wing can tour the facilities and learn about TechEd and Ag Survey classes offered. Guests can examine equipment such as a laser, 3-D printers, CNC router, a variety of welders, a four-station Ironworker, metal bandsaw and updated woods equipment. With the assistance of trained high school students, elementary students will have the opportunity to weld with a MIG welder, build a wood keychain and see a 3-D printer in action.

The Lakeside FFA Alumni group plans to offer complimentary ice cream sundaes and root beer floats to visitors during the open house. Signs will help visitors find the TechEd department, located on the west end of the school.

According to the Association for Career & Technical Education® (ACTE®), the goal of technical education is to explore careers that are in high demand, pay high wages, and provide job satisfaction in a variety of careers from agriculture, to manufacturing, healthcare, information technology and STEM careers.  Lakeside Lutheran offers a variety of classes for students to explore these careers, from Family and Consumer Science classes, Videography, Web Design, and Computer Programing, to the Tech Ed department itself, including classes in Woodworking, Construction, Metals Technology, Agriculture Survey, CAD, Small Engines and Advanced Career Tech. For more information, contact department head Jeff Meske at (920) 648-2321.

Principal’s Pen: One for All

Principal's Message“Occasionally, people “prophesy.” Whether commenting on an event or a person, sometimes their words come true.

Scripture contains many prophecies. Perhaps none has more irony than Caiaphas’ prophecy. After Jesus raised Lazarus, John writes, “Many of the Jews who … had seen what Jesus did, believed in him” (John 11:45). News of Christ’s miracle spread quickly. To those who saw it, seeing was believing.

But some reported what they saw to the Pharisees who, with the chief priests, gathered the Sanhedrin. The topic was what to do about Jesus.

Caiaphas, the High Priest, spoke. Although he may well have intended his words only for that situation, they were prophetic. He said, “You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish” (John 11:50). Caiaphas and others feared that if the people believed in Jesus, the Romans might invade and take away their status, power, and freedom. So, he proposed that one be sacrificed for many.

Think carefully about those words. Within them is the prophecy of Jesus’ crucifixion. Our Savior—the “one man”—would “die for the people.” Jesus’ death is the fulfillment of prophecies by Moses, David, Isaiah, Zechariah, and even Caiaphas.

We don’t know if Caiaphas ever reflected on his words. But they clearly point to Jesus’ cross. It was for our sin that God’s Son died to restore our relationship with him. Yet, Jesus’ death was not just for a nation of people. It was for a world of sinners.

Caiaphas’ prophecy reaches even further. After three days, Christ rose giving assurance that his death fully redeemed us. By it, God gives us the sure hope of our own salvation and a desire to live thankfully to him.

Thank God that we have the sure prophecy of his Word. By it, we see our Savior—the world’s Savior—from sin.
