May is National Stroke Awareness Month
A stroke occurs every 40 seconds and yet up to 80% of strokes can be prevented.This is why life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings is holding screenings at St. Peter Lutheran School on Saturday, May 16, 2015.
Screenings are fast, painless and affordable. Three key tests check for blocked carotid arteries, an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, and high blood pressure, which are the three leading risk factors for stroke. Nearly 800,000 strokes will occur this year, taking a life approximately every four minutes.
Other tests check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many events also offer blood tests, including cholesterol, glucose and c-reactive protein screenings, as well as take-home colon cancer early detection tests.
Screening packages start at $139. Single tests cost around $70.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888-653-6441. Pre-registration is required.

BIBLE CLASS ON CHRISTIAN SYMBOLS
God’s Word uses many symbols and for good reason. Have you ever wondered why or what a particular symbol means? Join us in May as we look at a number of these Biblical symbols. The individual symbols that we will study are the following: May 10 – Light & Darkness; May 17 – Wind & Spirit; and May 24 – Yeast. Understanding the meaning and purpose of these symbols will aid us in our Bible reading and Bible knowledge. These classes will be held in the Commons, with a starting time of 9:15 am. First class: Sunday, May 10!
Last summer man volunteers helped to install beautiful landscaping around our new school and church grounds. The landscaping committee from SPL is now looking for summertime volunteers to help manage the new plantings and grass. Youngsters or oldsters can volunteer a little or a lot...whatever fits your summertime schedule. Sign up in back of church, or cal Tom Buchholz or Sue Radtke to help out.
Some duties are filled already but we especially need volunteers for:
- trimming grass - using our self-propelled lawn push mower or weed whacker
- shrub maintenance-spring and fall
