National Lutheran Schools Week provides more than 1,900 preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate how God is at work in the schools of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Together we thank God not only for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for our children, but for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families.
As we prepare students academically, we teach creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, but most of all we teach Christ. Teachers and students alike are daily witnessing the love God has for us in Christ.
The National Lutheran Schools Week theme this year is “Sent to Serve” and is inspired by Matthew 20:28:
“Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Jesus served through His suffering, death and resurrection, He paid the price for us with His own life in order to free us from the slavery of sin. As followers of Jesus, we follow His example. We serve.
We praise God for the many servant hearts that are part of our Trinity Lutheran School ministry. We are blessed with dedicated teachers, hardworking staff, faithful volunteers, involved families, and a supportive congregation.
As a teacher there is no greater blessing than to witness firsthand children serving one another in love. From preschool through 8th grade our Trinity students strive to model the example of their Savior. As the Trinity Lutheran School family, we are “sent to serve” children and families. We are “sent to serve” our community in Jesus’ name. We are “sent to serve” the world. Not only are we training minds for success at the next academic level, we are cultivating relationships, we are nurturing faith in God, and we are modeling hands of service.
May we continue to work together as the Trinity Lutheran School family to serve one another in love. 1 John 4:19: “Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us.”
