Hot Lunch Program
Grace Lutheran School will be partnering this year with School Eatery to provide hot lunch options for students at Grace.
Parents create an account with School Eatery, and then use their online menu to place orders by the day, week, or even month. Each meal is prepared by School Eatery, packaged, and delivered to Grace. With this program there will be greater menu variety including customizable options for each day. (Don’t worry! Chick-Fil-A will still be on the menu) Meals come with a drink, and parents may select a small meal for younger children or a regular sized meal for older students.
All payments are made online directly to School Eatery. Orders may be cancelled the night before at no cost to the parent. Orders can even be added in the morning before 8:00 a.m. for a small convenience fee. There’s even an app for Apple phones to make ordering even easier.
This partnership will take the hassle out of ordering school lunches while still providing healthy options for our students. When you view the online menu, you will see nutrition information alongside each option allowing parents to make healthy choices for their kids.
Create your account today by going to https://schooleatery.ahotlunch.com/login and using the code GLJ (all caps). Want to download the app? Search “ahotlunch” in your Apple store and use schooleatery as your HotLunch Domain.
It takes approximately two weeks for new accounts to be activated, so don’t delay and register now!
Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Faith Statement
We believe that God is the Creator of the universe with all of its grandeur and beauty, and that He sustains it with His Almighty power. He also created our first parents, Adam and Eve, in His own image that they might live in fellowship with Him and be His instruments to care for the creation. We believe that Adam and Eve, whom God created, doubted and rebelled against Him. They sinned and their natures became evil. Now every human being is born with a self-centered nature and a tendency for evil that violates God’s will and desire. Attempts to change human nature or to please God with our own good are doomed to failure.
People need forgiveness and new life, and God provides it through His grace. We believe that God, out of pure love, gives people forgiveness of sins and thus reconciles them to Himself. He does this even though He is a just God who punishes sin because His own son, Jesus Christ, took the punishment for all sin for all people upon Himself when He died on the cross of Calvary. God raised Him from the dead on Easter and thus demonstrated to the world that the sacrifice of the Lamb of God has been accepted and man’s debt paid. We believe that people receive forgiveness through faith. Faith is the hand that accepts God’s free gift.
We believe that the Bible is the source of knowledge about God and His forgiveness and is also the way in which He speaks to us today. The bible was written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and so is true and without error. We believe that the church is the fellowship of all those who have come to faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. The Lutheran Church gets its name from Martin Luther who “reformed” the church with the basic principles of faith alone, grace alone, and Scripture alone. The purpose of the church is to nurture faith through the Word and the Sacrament of the Altar, and to share the love of God through Word and deed with the whole world in order to make other people disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe that God has given two Sacraments to build His church, Baptism to create faith, and Holy Communion- also called the Lord’s Supper- to nurture faith. In Holy Communion, Jesus Christ gives the communicant His body and blood “in, with, and under” the bread and wine. We believe that the fellowship that God establishes with His believers on earth will continue after this life as believers live with Him in heaven for all eternity.
