Never Too Lost
When we turn from our self-righteousness, it can be easy to fly to the other extreme of despair. Especially during Lent, we become painfully aware of our sins, which can lead us to wonder if we've wandered too far. But no matter how far or how often we stray, we are never to lost to be found by Jesus. Join us for chapel via livestream every day but Wednesday next week. (Chapel times can be found on the home page of the school website under upcoming events.) We will hear about when we were lost to open sin, and hidden sin, and what happens if I keep getting lost. Text for chapel next week is based off of Luke 15: 3-32. Friday's chapel Pastor Kruschel from St. John's Two Rivers will bring us the message.

Big News: We have a March Match!
Thanks to some generous donations, a matching gift of $600,000 has been provided to the campaign! Any new pledge or donation during the month of March will be matched by this gift. That means the Lancer Family can offset the cost of our construction by $1.2 million! Help spread the word regarding this wonderful opportunity! Thank you to all who have participated in the campaign to this point! We are approaching the $5 million mark, with about $3 million coming in since last July! Thanks be to God for this tremendous blessing! We remain committed to beginning the project this summer, doing what we can with the resources (financial and otherwise) available. Now is the time to get started! Let us continue to serve our school families—those of today and those of the future—with a ministry that is “Building Our Future On Christ.”
So far we have $154,097 that came in that will be matched! Thank you!!!

Marketing Class - Online Store!
Looking for a new way to support students MLHS and the Capital Campaign at the same time? In a new ‘Marketing in the Digital Era’ class this semester, a group of Juniors and Seniors, with the guidance and supervision of Mr. Gurgel, has created an online store with various Lancer apparel and items available for purchase.
In this class, students read in an online textbook and use strategies they learn to help improve their shop to drive in more customers. Every student has come up with their own product to design and sell in the shop. All profits made will be donated to the Capital Campaign fund. Please check out our shop at lancerlounge.com!
Join FOL at the Resch Center
Several members of the Friends of the Lancers have just completed a very successful season of concessions for home Packer games. The funds raised go toward the school Wish List in May. Much of that goes toward the various team uniforms. Let’s keep OUR teams looking good!
We have been asked to get involved with concessions at the Resch Center. Somewhat similar to Packer games, but less hours required. Four to six hours per event, and should be done by 10PM depending on overtime, etc. This is for a variety of events such as indoor football, hockey, concerts, comedy shows, and some WIAA events.
If anyone is interested in volunteering to help MLHS, here is a great opportunity! To minimize parking problems, we carpool together and then we arrive at the same time and that makes registering easy. There is a list of 16 events for March and about that many for April. We can choose which dates we would like to attend. Let me know if you would like more information and I can email it to you. (too large for this article) We have a group already signed up for March 19 Eric Church concert. Don’t be left behind ! Call me, Jon Schwalbe at 920-758-2730 and feel free to leave a message.
