RLS Students Write and Deliver Advent Books to Local Nursing Homes

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A dedicated group of Rockford Lutheran High School students has written and published a twenty-eight-page booklet with a devotional for every day of Advent this holiday season. The booklets are being distributed to all the area Lutheran churches as well as four Senior Living facilities in the Rockford area this week.

The students will be visiting with residents of Peterson Meadows at 11am on Tuesday, November 27, Fairview Nursing Home on Wednesday, November 28 and Spring Ridge Senior Home on Thursday, November 29th.

The students involved from Rockford Lutheran represent a group called the Lutheran Links who meet once a month under the direction of the Executive Director, Don Gillingham. “We have selected one student from each homeroom to be scribes and ambassadors for our school. 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 please contact Nancee Long @ 815-877-9551 ext. 136.
