a publication of Lakeside Lutheran High School Volume 7: Issue 12

FED eration CONnection Stop squirming “Stop squirming!” How many times have you said that, witnessed someone saying it, or wished someone would say it—perhaps to a restless child or two? Some may even recall hearing those words directed at them.

God also says, “Stop squirming!” The psalmist writes, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Although our circumstances may differ from those of a fidgeting child, the message has a similar intent. Life often distracts us from our true purpose to “love the Lord [our] God with all [our] heart and with all [our] soul and with all [our] strength and with all [our] mind” (Luke 10:27). We frequently live life, not considering the consequences of our actions. When we focus only on the here-and-now, it is only a matter of time before we begin “squirming” after the world’s allurements. Soon we find ourselves completely drawn away from our true purpose, only to follow an ungodly course. At these times, God says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” His power, his wisdom, his goodness, and his righteousness are all we need. Furthermore, he makes them ours by grace through faith in Christ. When we are tempted to focus more on the present than on the hereafter, God’s voice calls us back to the reality of making him our highest treasure.

“Stop squirming!” God gives us all we need for this life and the life to come. Jim Grasby is principal of Lakeside Lutheran High. Reach him at 920.648.2321 or jgrasby@llhs.org


new faces I C faculty The new school year will bring four new called workers to our faculty. The next couple months of FedCon will include brief intros and a snapshot of our new teachers. Introduce yourself and give them a warm Warrior welcome when you see them around campus!

Mrs. Hannah Uher will teach several sections of Freshman General Science as well as Human Anatomy & Physiology when she begins teaching at LLHS this fall. Born and raised in Milwaukee, both her parents teach in public schools.

She attended Wisconsin Lutheran High School, where she met her high school sweetheart, Eric. “We were married July 15, 2017. This past December, we both graduated from WLC with double majors.” Hannah majored in Secondary Chemistry and Life Science Education. They went to Beautiful Savior, Cincinnati, Ohio, where Eric was an emergency, long-term substitute. In May, Eric was assigned to Peace, Sun Prairie, as a sixth grade teacher. “Shortly after assignment day, I was placed here at Lakeside, and we could not be more excited about our new home and opportunity to serve God and his people!” Hannah loves small-group Bible studies, playing soccer and volleyball, reading, puns, drinking coffee, going to concerts, playing strategy board games, cheering on the Packers, and eating at local restaurants.

Pastor Michael Helwig comes from a big

family and has a big family. “I was number six of eight children. Rachel and I have five children: Sam and his wife, Maddie, are going to China for a year before starting at seminary; Philip (Mechanical Engineering at MSOE); Isaac (Criminal Justice at UWM); Miriam (senior at KML); and Gabriel (freshman at Lakeside).” His wife, Rachel, is a teacher. She taught second grade at St. Stephen, Beaver Dam, and has taught Early Childhood at their churches. Mike has served as pastor at Christ, Grand Island, Neb., for 6 years and most recently as pastor at Crown of Life, Hubertus, for 15 years. He also taught freshman Word of God at KML for one year. Pastor Mike loves fishing, camping, reading, puzzles, playing guitar, and listening to all styles of music, He looks forward to being part of the LL family. “I am excited about connecting to the students with the Word of God and personally through the events of Lakeside student life.” He will be working with juniors and seniors in sections of Revelation & World Religions, Apologetics and Christian Living.

A new academic year is almost upon us, but first...

cc Our A Cappella Choir had a recording session for its 2017-18 song list and the CDs are available now! Interested? You may purchase the full color CD for $10 in the school office or make an order with Mr. Buege at jbuege@llhs.org. The playlist includes O Church Arise, Witness, Fairest Lord Jesus and nine more. cc FFA keeps busy year-round! They helped with the Dairy Breakfast in June, then jumped right in to fair season at the Jefferson County Fair from July 11-15. Some will be at the Dodge County Fair from Aug. 15-19. cc The first-ever Warrior Cadet Summer Band marched in the Lake Mills Town & Country Days and the Watertown 4th of July parades, and they did a fabulous job! Thanks to director and drum major Brian Hildebrandt for all his work in preparing these 4th-7th grade marchers. cc The Booster Club Golf Outing was all FORE Warrior athletics. Held on July 13, dozens of supporters pitched in to raise money for our boosters. cc We’ve been happy to host hundreds of grade school students for soccer, volleyball, basketball, football, running and STEM camps during June and July. cc Six of the seven Operation GO mission teams have completed their trips. They began with the spring break soccer camp in Antigua. This summer they participated in a soccer camp in Boise, stem and soccer in Anchorage, VBS in New Orleans, and art camp in New York. Each one has been a great experience for our teens as they worked with children and families, partnering with our sister WELS churches to share the gospel! Visit the OpGo Facebook page for photos (goo.gl/K1aeCc) and stay tuned for pictures from the VBS in New Jersey. cc From June 30-July 14, the Warrior Band traveled to the East Coast, performing in parades in Ontario, Canada, and several U.S. cities. At the Enfield, Connecticut parade July 7, they received the Best Marching Band Award. Director Glen Pufahl shared, “They were also treated to lunch by the town where they received something even better than a trophy. As we were leaving, many of the dignitaries and citizens came up to me to express how polite and respectful the band members are.” The band also toured New York City, Boston, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, as well as Washington D.C., where they had the honor of playing for a group of Honor Flight veterans from Chicago.
