A Message from the Development Director

Recent posts on

Let’s be social! s another school year closes, A I am reminded just how precious time is. Just a few short days ago, 74 students walked across a stage and collected their Lakeside Lutheran diplomas. Graduating from high school can be a milestone, a crossroad, and an adventure all-in-one. How precious are those four years our graduates have heard God’s encouragement through His word: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). What a blessing that God continues to provide Lakeside Lutheran High School with the opportunity to nurture the faiths of young adults. As supporters of Lakeside, you should feel encouraged through God’s word as well: “...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Gal. 5:22-23). As we continue to grow spiritually, may we see more and more evidence of His Holy Spirit in our lives, more and more “fruit of the Spirit.” And with more and more fruit, there is more and more to give to others! May the Lord continue to richly bless you.

Members of the Chi Fellowship, through the fruits of the Holy Spirit, have provided a single gift of less than$1,000 during the last year to Lakeside Lutheran High School. With the Greek letter Chi so evident in our churches and schools, your association with this fellowship is a reminder of God’s love, and every gift is significant to Lakeside.

If someone had told me in 2007 that Lakeside would one day be such an integral part of our lives, I would have said something like, “Where’s that?” We were living in Two Rivers, buying Scrip for Manitowoc Lutheran High School and quite content. Then my husband, who is in the military, was transferred to Madison. All of a sudden, our lives were turned upside down—and the words of Jeremiah 29:11 were what got us through many a day. 

As a thank you for your gift we offer you a subscription to The Legacy, and invite you to attend a fellowship event. To remain a member of this Chi Fellowship we encourage you to renew your annual support each year, or prayerfully consider joining the Rho or Kentro Fellowships.

Now, almost six years later, I can see what those plans were to prosper our family. Out of all of the communities we could have moved to, we were led to Lake Mills, and Lakeside did soon become part of our family’s vocabulary. We went from not even knowing where it was, to me working there as a lunch lady and running the Scrip program, my husband assisting with boys golf, our oldest son set to graduate from LLHS in 2014 and our daughter about to begin her freshman year at Lakeside this fall. By the time our youngest makes it through, we will have been part of the Lakeside family for over 13 years.

What a blessed “family” to be a part of. Intelligent, Christian teachers, inspiring coaches, supportive coworkers, amazing students, dedicated parents...all of these are components that make up the Lakeside family and make it such a wonderful place to be. I am so thankful that this school and its family is where the Lord led our family; I pray that He leads many families here in the future to grow in His grace and to nurture our young people in the shadow of His cross!

Members of the Rho Fellowship, with the Lord’s guidance, have provided multiple gifts totaling less than $1,000 within the last year to Lakeside Lutheran High School. The Greek letters Rho and Chi form the symbol for Christ. This symbol, displayed in the center of our school seal, serves as a reminder that Christ is the center of our faith at Lakeside. Through this faith we return our blessings to continue His work.

As a thank you for your gifts we offer you membership in the Rho Fellowship, a subscription to The Legacy, and also invite you to attend the fellowship events that have been planned for you.

Bari Vredeveld We are in this together. Parenting and Lakeside go together naturally—these children of ours and children of God. This is what I’ve come to realize as a parent, staff member, volunteer, supporter and friend in Christ. We teach them about God. We teach them to work hard, obey, lead, respect, serve, forgive and love. We build realistic confidence. We provide guidance. We offer prayer. We enforce godly discipline. We help with life lessons. We lead by example. We encourage excellence in all things. We help build a foundation. We don’t get everything right 100% of the time, but we have the reassurance that God did. We do our best to grow their faith and make it their own. Finally, we love them…but we know that God loves them more than we do anyway. Bari is the Development Department Assistant at your Lakeside Lutheran High School.
