Be strong and courageous. 
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,

The concert will include performances by all ALA choirs and the band as well as individual performers,

During the concert, two ALA teachers will be honored for 25 years in the public ministry.

  • Doug Meyer has served all 25 years at ALA in various capacities, most notably as Athletic Director for 20 years. Doug is currently serving as our Director of Mission Advancement.
  • Joan Tierney has also spent all 25 years at ALA. She is our upper level English instructor, and has served in the past as our track coach and drama director.

Staff members leaving ALA during the summer include

  • Matt Sonntag, who accepted a call to teach science at Shoreland Lutheran High School in Wisconsin; and
  • Paul Drewitz, who is our Building & Grounds Assistant.

We invite you to join us in thanking God for the blessing of these faithful servants. Following the concert there will be an outdoor reception for these four honorees. Everyone is invited to both the concert and the reception. No RSVP is requested, and no tickets are needed.

Saturday, May 26, 2018, 10:00am in the ALA gymnasium 

We begin the morning with a worship service at 10am. The graduation ceremony immediately follows the service. This year’s speaker is Pastor Joshua Stahmann from Salem Lutheran Church in Scottsdale.

All are welcome; there are no tickets used for seating and no limit to guests. Doors will open at 8:30am. To be fair to all, each graduate family is asked to limit seating in the “prime” (padded) seating area to six (6) seats. There will be plenty of seating in other areas of the gym.
