Turn on and Tune in

Mark your calendars as Example completes the trifecta! 
On November 13 at 9:00 a.m., Example will once again take to the radio airwaves to broadcast its message of living a drug-free life in response to the forgiveness, mercy, hope and salvation God grants to us because of Christ's righteousness.

Call in and join the discussion: 866-423-9578

Our World His View is a Lutheran radio station and has invited Example back for another show.  This is Example's third opportunity to be a part of the show.

The Example Halloween Costume Party
was a great event.  Over seventy people attended, ate too much candy, laughed, enjoyed each other's company, marvelled at some of the costumes and listened to a parallel between Shadrach, Meeshach and Obednego and confidently living in 2010 knowing our God protects us from all harm and danger - including drugs and alcohol.

Fret not, pictures and video are on the way.

Raise the Banner!

This year's Example banner is up for all to see and realize that plenty of high school students are opting not to drink or use drugs.  Last year Amanda Brandimore (10) and Elizabeth Viviano (10) redesigned the Example logo.  Using their design we made permanent banners to hang in the cafeteria and at various events we host. 

The yellow paper banner is emblazoned with the hand prints of the students that showed up at the first Example event.  If you missed the opportunity, fret not.  There will be another chance to get your hand on the banner at the Halloween Costume Contest event on October 23.  Festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. and the cost of admission is $3.00

This is one of the greatest weeks of the year.  Students are roaming the hallways in pajamas, as superheros, pirates, Marios, Luigis or even Victor Von Dooooooooooooooom. 

Powder puff teams are practicing and some brave football players are "coaching" the Puffettes.  Soccer and football teams are preparing for their games during this Homecoming weekend.

Dance preparations are underway for "Hollywood Under the Stars"

Today students voted for their Homecoming King and Queen.  Who will win?  Attend the football game and watch the half-time pageantry unfold.  Homecoming is a lot of fun.

Please remember to make God-pleasing decisions.  Avoid alcohol and drugs.  The temptation to drink and use drugs certainly exists. Avoid the situation.  Prepare what you will say and do if you find yourself in a situation that is not God-pleasing. 

"Dear friends, I urge you , as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul."   - I Peter 2:11

Please help your children make God-pleasing decisions by reminding them to be safe and smart in what they do, where they go and who they are with.  Contact the families that will be hosting parties to make sure they will not allow alcohol.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will." 
                                                           - Romans 12:2
