Call News


Mr. Ben Edmundson
Ben Edmundson, social studies and physical education teacher at ALA, has received a call to serve as teacher of Grades 5-6 and Athletic Director at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran School in Menasha, Wisconsin. Mr. Edmundson also serves as our JV girls basketball coach and our softball coach. 

When a teacher receives a call, that begins a process of deliberation and prayer to make a decision where God would have him serve. Mr. Edmundson will undertake that process now and through the next few weeks and through Christmas vacation. Also valuable to a teacher considering this is commentary from students and families, and you're invited to do so at

Technology and STEM

Matt Groth has accepted our call as an instructor. Praise the Lord!

Mr. Groth currently is serving at St. Paul's Lutheran School in Saginaw, Michigan. Mr. Groth will teach in the area of technology and STEM at ALA. He and his family will move here in the summer of 2019. This position will replace Mrs. Virginia Steinmetz, who has announced her retirement at the close of this school year.

Building & Grounds Position Filled
We are pleased to announce that Ryan Goudeau has joined our staff as Building & Grounds Assistant.




We believe that it is the Lord, through the church, who calls people to serve in the public ministry. Individuals already serving in public ministry who receive a call to serve in another field prayerfully deliberate both calls they hold. That deliberation involves, among other things, examining one's gifts; understanding the duties of both calls and how one's gifts are best utilized; and considering the input of colleagues, family and members of the congregation. Called workers have the confidence that God will bless the decision they reach.
