Philosophy of Ministry

Christian Education

When you were a student, what lessons had the greatest impact on your life? What are you doing to ensure that your children will learn the same lessons? Why will their spiritual education have the greatest impact of all on your children?

Jesus answers that question: "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" (Mark 8:36)

At Grace Lutheran School we believe that the most important gift parents can give their children is instruction in God's Word because these lessons will last for eternity. We strive to instill in children the understanding that the focus of our life and work is eternal. We especially strive to share with them the message of God's love for us that is so great it would stop at nothing to bring us into his family.

Jesus also said, "These [the words of the Bible] are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ... and that by believing you may have life in his name." (John 20:31)

We daily share with the children the comforting message that though we all sin against God each day, we are forgiven for our sin, not because of anything we do for God, but because of what he has done for us in Jesus. Through him we have eternal life with God now here on earth and forever in heaven.

This gospel comfort provides a safe environment for students to grow intellectually, spiritually, and morally, as they learn to live lives of thanks to Jesus for all he's done for us. It provides them with the opportunities to stretch themselves to grow without fear of failure, knowing we're at peace with God.

With this philosophy of ministry, Grace Lutheran School has been faithfully preparing children to be the best they can be for life and for eternity. We hope you'll consider joining us.
