“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” This Bible verse, from the thirteenth chapter of Hebrews, is a wonderful foundation for the stead-fast grace we receive from the great God we serve. It also reminds us of the connection we have to the ancestors that came to America and founded the first Lutheran schools in Perry County, Missouri, in 1847. Today, Calvary Lutheran High School is one of many Lutheran schools in mid-Missouri that embraces the ministry of proclaiming and celebrating God’s work in and out of the classroom. We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children we serve. We are excited to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families. National Lutheran Schools Week allows us to join with Lutheran schools on a national level to proclaim these great blessings within the communities we serve, today and into the future.
This day of discovery begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch provided on January 18th. Please contact the school office by January 17th if you are interested in attending.

December can be a very busy month. It is also a very special month. We have the opportunity to reflect on the greatest gift given to all of us, God’s only begotten Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. During the advent season we prepare our hearts for the “coming” of the promised Savior’s birth. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we celebrate the amazing night in Bethlehem when angels proclaimed his long-awaited birth. The celebration continues into early January, Epiphany, which commemorates when the Magi visited and honored Jesus, the King of kings. May God’s peace and love be with you.
Come celebrate the birth of Christ with your Calvary family at the Calvary Christmas Concert on Friday, December 8th at 7 p.m. The Calvary Choir, Concert Band, Select Choir, Women’s Choir, Men’s Choir, small ensembles and solos are excited to be performing. The evening will uplift your hearts as we prepare for the celebration of our dear Savior’s birth. Art done by our talented students will also be on display. Looking forward to seeing you there!
We give thanks everyday for the many blessings we receive.

Sam Powell, from Trinity Lutheran Church, leads us in worship.
Tuesday, December 12th, follow your GPS (the yellow brick road) not to the Emerald City but to Calvary’s gym to watch Trinity & Immanuel Lutheran School’s basketball teams compete against each other! The boys’ teams face off at 5:00 p.m. What an awesome way to celebrate K-12 Lutheran schools in Jeff City! Immediately following, you can stay to watch Calvary’s JV and Varsity boys teams play Tuscumbia.
500 years ago, an Augustinian monk named Martin Luther, posted 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Martin Luther’s fervent study of scripture, ability to translate scripture into German, and his intellect for teaching changed the world by placing the Word of God into the hands of everyday people, like us. We honor the Reformation tenet of SOLA SCRIPTURA (by Scripture alone) by reading scripture aloud for nine consecutive hours in our auditorium. We thank God for working through Martin Luther so that we may be enriched by reading His Word on a daily basis.
Some of you may have seen the performances of Anne of Green Gables at Calvary four years ago. In October, we are pleased to present two performances of Anne of Avonlea.

Our performances are scheduled for Thursday, October 26th, at 12:30 p.m. and Friday, October 27th at 7:00 p.m. A dessert bar will be offered during the Friday evening performance only. Admission is a freewill donation.
