Isn’t it incredible to know that the Lord Jesus Christ died for the chief (or worst) of sinners?!? I find it so comforting to know that He died for me. He took the punishment for each of us when He willingly died for our sins! You don’t have to do anything good to gain salvation. You don’t have to have to go church either. You and I sin daily, but as long as each person believes in Jesus Christ and the gospel we can have eternal life! I am so thankful it doesn’t depend on what I do or say, but on His precious gift which He offers to all who believe! Life is short. I am reminded of that more and more as craziness continues to happen in our country! Have you believed in Jesus Christ’s finished work on the cross yet? Today is the day because we are not guaranteed tomorrow. If you have received Jesus as Savior this a good time for you to be thankful for the GIFT He has given us!!
**Please pay close attention to the email as there is lots of important info this week**

Warrior Week Replay
Varsity played a very hard fought match against Lincoln Tuesday night but lost in 4 in a best out of 5 match. They then got 2nd place at the Lightning tournament..It was good volleyball all day long!
JV played in Lincoln as well and won after an unexpected injury in the first set! They also played in the Lightning tournament where they got 3rd. It was a trying day(injuries and sickness) for the girls but they pushed through with great joy! By the end of the day they had Noelle Wamhoff (5’2”) playing middle but she did so with a smile on her face! Way to stand strong in the midst of hardship, ladies!
8AA had 2 games this week! They played Tuesday night and Saturday. They lost Tuesday but Coach Rachel says their defense continues to improve! Saturday they were able to get a win which hopefully will give them a good seed in their tournament!
8B had a few girls missing this week and a hard game on Saturday. They continue to work hard and will be preparing for their tournament this week!
6B finished their season this week! Coach Lauren’s goal for them in their tournament game was to play as a team and have fun! She said that all of you did a great job doing both of these things! What a great season!
NEW Time/Day for the Volleyball Sports Banquet!
We are trying something new to Warriors this year! We will have a Volleyball Banquet on Monday, November 20th at 6:30. It will be held at Millard Community Church (Off of 126th and Q St.) We are hoping this will allow for a shorter sports banquet! It will also be a better way for the girls to keep the memories from their seasons more alive/ exciting than to wait 5 months. 😉
Volleyball Sports Banquet Slide Show Pictures Needed🏐📽😁
This year we are planning our Volleyball Sports Banquet for sometime in November.😁Due to this fact, I have a very limited time to make slide shows for every volleyball team and our seniors. 📷😁Your pictures are needed and appreciated as you take them. Our sports banquet for volleyball is tentatively set for November 20th!!
I’m looking for candid pictures, action shots from games or practice, pictures of the whole team, huddles, and pictures of the team just having fun! Selfies are great too;)
Please send me your favorite pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would rather put your pictures on a flash drive or a CD, you can do that too.
