A high school friend of mine who knew our beloved Mr. English posted this to his page yesterday. It's so beautifully written - I thought it would be enjoyed by our church family ❤️:

"Everyone needs a champion, that person who is unfailingly in your corner, always supporting you, always encouraging you, always believing in you, always rooting for you no matter what. When I began my teaching career at Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas 17 years ago, I needed a champion and I found one in Ward English.

Ward came to Skyline as the Dean of Instruction at the beginning of my second year of teaching. He began his career in public education as an English teacher in the 1970s and he ultimately moved into administration. But unlike many administrators who seemed to forget their classroom roots, Ward never lost touch with teachers and was in turn revered by most of all of us. Not because he was the always the most pleasant person to deal with. He was not. But because we knew he deeply cared about us and most of all about the children we were entrusted to educate.

When I walked into Ward’s office in August 2005 a few days before school started and nervously informed him that I would be leaving at the end of the school year to attend law school, I expected him to tell me not to bother to set up my classroom. But instead he held me in his gaze, a warm smile washing across his bespectacled visage, and gently and sincerely told me: “I’m gonna to miss you Bubba.”

Ward unhesitatingly wrote letters of recommendation and encouraged me throughout the application process. After I moved to Oregon and started law school, I did not think I would ever hear from Ward again. But sure enough that first winter in the Northwest brought a Christmas card in the mail from Ward. I knew then that I had made a friend for life. There would be no shaking Ward English. Each subsequent Christmas brought another card from Ward and with it a lengthy, single-spaced letter recapping in sometimes mind-numbing detail just about everything he had done during the previous year. Readers were regaled with tales of the good life he was living now that he had retired -- the Canasta games he played with his closest friends, the Texas Rangers games he attended in the hot summer sun (he was die-hard fan and season-ticket holder), the hearty lunches and dinners at this restaurant or that one with former colleagues (he loved to eat), the Sunday school class he taught at his church (he loved children and was a true Christian), the trips he took here, there and everywhere (he always seemed to be going on or planning his next cruise), the former students, colleagues and otherwise notable people he encountered at the polls each election day (the consummate citizen, he volunteered at polling sites each year), the One-Act Play and Academic Decathlon competitions he judged (he was a staunch supporter of these extra-curricular activities and got me involved as an Academic Decathlon coach when I was at Skyline).

Since I joined Facebook nine years ago, I have used it as a venue for my first love – writing. And my favorite subject to write about has always been my dad, the late Paul Diener, who died October 10, 1984 when I was 10. Ward never tired of my stories about my dad, a man he never knew in person, but came to know and revere through my stories. Ever my champion, Ward unfailingly posted thoughtful and encouraging comments about those stories, emboldening me to continue to share them and to not stop believing in my abilities as a writer and storyteller.

Two days ago, my champion, who had recently beaten cancer, fell and hit his head. Yesterday, October 10, 2018, he died. In reading the posts on Ward’s page today, a realization hit me. Ward English was not just my champion. He was the champion of each and every one of the thousands of students, teachers, colleagues, neighbors, friends, family members, and Rangers fans whose lives he touched.

I'm gonna miss you Bubba, and so is everyone else."
-Drew Diener

Nursery and Bible classes for all ages will resume on June 6! Is the Holy Spirit prompting you to serve?
The return to class time and Nursery provides great opportunities for us to step back in to serving in meaningful ways and pouring into the life of our children at Highland Oaks.
Click on this short survey to see the areas of service available to you. Use your gifts, learn new skills and even grow in friendships with other volunteers too!
We understand that children still have not had the chance to be vaccinated, so be assured that we will be requiring the wearing of face masks over the nose and mouth for all people ages 2 and up throughout the building. Thanks!

Get ready for another awesome day of Kids’ Praise during the sermon time. If you’re not ready to come in person, you’re welcome to join us outdoors on weather-permitting days around 10:30am. See you there!

In Kids’ Praise this week, we learned about how the first century church learned to share as a community of believers. Each one of these kids thought of really cool ways that their family has been sharing lately. They were reminded that they are the continuation of that first century church living today for Jesus.

Happy Easter! Yell it out: The tomb is EMPTY! He is risen. Hallelujah means Praise the Lord.

Take a moment to ask Jesus:
Would you please reveal what needs to be resurrected in my heart this year? Please shine Your light on those places where I’m not living fully alive in Christ.

Say it aloud and encourage your family to say it too:
❤️ I am God’s beloved. I am cherished. ❤️
For God so loved the world that God gave God’s one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. ✝️ - John 3:16-17

Imagine how different our world would look if we gave the kind of love to others that God gave to us through Jesus.

It’s Maundy Thursday. The word “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word that means “commandment”. It refers to when Jesus, during the Last Supper, said to the disciples: ‘A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.’

Jesus, you chose to be born in such a humble way in an animal feeding trough. You didn’t have a place to rest your head and you did the job of servants to wash the dirty feet of your followers. You rode a donkey—not a chariot. Help us to be humble like you.

It’s Holy Tuesday.
In what ways are we planting seeds of faith in our children? It’s all the consistent small ways like these:
👉🏽 Read the Bible with your kids and share how it affects you.
👉🏽 Model a life of prayer by allowing them to hear you pray throughout the day. Invite them to complete a simple one sentence prayer such as: God, thank you today for ___________.
👉🏽 Share your struggles in age-appropriate ways and how you turn to God for help.
👉🏽 Verbalize how you saw at work today around you and in them.

It’s Holy Monday and we’re reading the story from Matthew 21: 12-14.
Jesus went to the temple and cleaned out what was not a part of God’s design. Jesus shines light into the dark places of our hearts.
God, please open our eyes to the dark places in us. Help us to embrace Your grace and truth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

On our Lent Adventures Day 29 lesson, we invite your kids to climb a tree to pretend to be Zaccheus. Take a photo. Even better, film a reenactment of Jesus calling him by name to come down! Then, scatter coins under the tree or on a sidewalk for someone to find them as a surprise.
