On Sunday, September 18, we will recognize the faithful service of Kelli Meinholdt. At the end of July this year Kelli stepped down as the director of our Martin Luther Lutheran School. She served in this role for 14 years, almost since the school was founded.
Special Thank You Event
We invite you to show your thanks to Kelli with a special recognition on Sunday, September 18.
This will include several elements:
At worship (9:45 a.m.) we will have a commemoration for her ministry among us.
After worship (about 10:55/11:00 a.m.) we will have a reception in her honor.
You are invited to add to the day of thanks in one or more of these ways:
- Attend the worship service and reception
- Make a financial gift to the Martin Luther Lutheran School in honor of Kelli. Please include a note that you are doing this in her honor. You can make checks payable to: MLLS, making note of this gift being in honor of Kelli Meinholdt.
- Provide a monetary gift for Kelli through the church office. Cash or checks, payable to MLLC. It would be helpful to have these by noon on September 14 so we can write one check to Kelli.
- Bring or send a card or letter to express your gratitude
- Include a gift of your choice with your note
If you cannot attend on September 18, know that we can receive these personal notes and gifts at the church office to pass these along to Kelli.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Pastor David Tinker at the church office – 979-278-3388.

The students of our Daycare Ministry – Martin Luther Lutheran School (MLLS) – presented their annual program recently. On Friday evening, December 5, the older students in this ministry presented songs and poetry which proclaimed the good news that Jesus Christ is born. Parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives and friends of students, staff and school board members gathered to enjoy this special presentation.
The students practiced for weeks to get ready. They did a great job, as always.
We are thankful for the ministry of church musician Nancy Eilers who accompanied the singing.
Many gathered for food and fellowship in the Fellowship Hall following the program.
The Early Childhood Education ministry MLLC is the Martin Luther Lutheran School (MLLS). On Tuesday, September 2, 2014 our new school year began. With songs and prayer we ushered in the new year. We gathered in the Fellowship Hall, which is just at the end of the Christian Education/MLLS wing of our building. Our pastor led the students, teachers and parents in prayer.
All MLLS students and staff, along with some parents, were on hand to pray in and sing in the new school year.
We are always welcoming of new students. Click this link to find out more. Or call our school office at: 979-278-3380, and speak to our school director, Kelli Meinholdt.
Here are some photos taken at the special time of prayer and song.
Next week, on September 2, the new school year begins for Martin Luther Lutheran School (MLLS). We are excited about this new year and all that comes with it. With this new year MLLS has updated the web links on this web site regarding the school, tuition and fees, parent handbook, as well as the menus for snacks and lunch in September.
Note that things look much the same, but there are various items which needed to be changed based on School Board decisions, state law, etc.
Here is the link to the main page for MLLS. Click this link.
As a service to parents and interested individuals we post our snack and lunch menus for Martin Luther Lutheran School.

Every August we host our Teacher Appreciation Breakfast. This is a special gift to the local schools: Round Top-Carmine Elementary, Round Top-Carmine Junior/Senior High School and our own Martin Luther Lutheran School.
The purpose of this event is to show the staff of these three schools that they are cared for and supported as they teach the children of this community. All staff members are included in this invitation, including aids, teachers, custodians, maintenance, food service, administrators and others.
A group of friendly volunteers work together to prepare a tasty breakfast of fruit, rolls, egg casseroles, juice and other items. Additionally, Carmine State Bank provides a gift bag for all the staff who attended.
As you go through your weeks ahead remember to keep our children, and those who teach them, in your prayers.
Thank you to the volunteers who put this special event together for our local teachers and staff.
