Why a St. John Lutheran School?
Our congregation’s mission to Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known springs from the Great Commission (Matthew 28). Finding places and spaces to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ is what we are about!
The NALC has embraced four core values which shape our common life: Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded, and Congregationally Focused. We are a church centered on the unique Gospel of Jesus Christ, animated by missions and evangelism, grounded in the 2,000-year tradition of Christian faith, and organized chiefly to serve our congregations. Learn more about our beliefs and teachings on the NALC (North American Lutheran Church) website HERE.
In creating a school, we join a long history where “Lutherans continue to value and promote education. The family is still seen as the first and primary place where faith is taught and nurtured.” However, “Each day Lutheran schools support families in the task of teaching and nurturing faith in their children, as the school becomes a workshop of Christian love. In these schools, children experience God’s love and forgiveness, even as they learn math, history, language, arts, and science.” (Lutheranism 101, by Scot A. Kinnaman)
Where God’s Word is lived and taught, Christ’s presence is experienced. As Luther said,
“Whenever God’s Word is taught, preached, heard, read, or meditated upon, then the person, day, and work are sanctified. This is not because of the outward work, but because of the Word, which makes saints of us all. Therefore, I constantly say that all our life and work must be guided by God’s Word, if it is to be God-pleasing or holy.” (LC 1 92)
