NATIONAL LUTHERAN SCHOOLS’ WEEK
Children attending our Lutheran schools are no different than those growing up in other schools, EXCEPT that the students in Lutheran schools are growing up together in Christ as they hear every day in their classrooms. Schools everywhere have children who cry, laugh, play, work, learn to cooperate, share, learn how to be organized, learn about differences, tolerate, fogive, act out, manipulate, and study. But in our Lutheran schools they do this learning and growing up in an atmosphere where Christ can be viewed as the center of all.
Lutheran schools are not private schools in that they are open to everyone! Jesus welcomes all to come to him. We welcome all into our Lutheran schools as part of the family of Christ. The longer children have in Lutheran schools, the longer we have to prepare their minds and hearts for eternal life.
In our theme for the year, and also the theme for National Lutheran Schools’ Week, we talk about Christ being our ROCK. We want our children to grow up together in Christ, rooted in His Word, so that they are ready to make wise decisions based on the rock solid foundation that is Jesus Christ.
Growing up during these formative years can be hard. When we hold fast to what we know in our hearts to be true, right and everlasting, the reward is ours! We want nothing less for our children.
PRAISE GOD FOR OUR LUTHERAN SCHOOLS, AND ESPECIALLY MARTIN LUTHER ACADEMY – A GREAT PLACE TO GROW!
