Lutheran High students distribute Advent books
A dedicated group of Rockford Lutheran High School students has written and published a 28-page booklet with a devotional for every day of Advent this holiday season. The booklets were distributed to all the area Lutheran churches as well as four senior living facilities in the area.
The students visited with residents of Peterson Meadows Nov. 27, Fairview Nursing Home Nov. 28 and Spring Ridge Senior Home Nov. 29.
The students involved from Rockford Lutheran represent a group called the Lutheran Links, who meet once a month under the direction of Executive Director Don Gillingham.
“We have selected one student from each homeroom to be scribes and ambassadors for our school,” Gillingham said. “Their role will grow as we strengthen our connections to congregations, civic groups and the wider community.”
If you or anyone you know is interested in receiving a copy of the 2012 Advent Booklet written by RLS high school students, contact Nancee Long at (815) 877-9551, ext. 136.
