Celebrating with Thankful Hearts

We give thanks everyday for the many blessings we receive.  On Tuesday, November 21st, we celebrate on a grand scale with a special Chapel Service, followed by our annual Thanksgiving Celebration potluck.  Students, faculty and staff enjoy worshiping and sharing fellowship with the guests we often have attend.  We invite you to join us for Chapel at 11:00 a.m. as Rev. Sam Powell, from Trinity Lutheran Church, leads us in worship.

SOLA SCRIPTURA

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.

Key Club has scheduled their next Blood Drive on October 30th.  You can schedule a time to donate blood between 1:00–7:00 p.m. by calling 573-690-6788.

We Are Listening

Being an accredited school matters greatly to us.  Achieving the high standards of being accredited by National Lutheran School Accreditation and Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association is time and energy well-spent.  Read the letter sharing results from a recent survey and the steps we are taking this academic year to help us in our mission in Building Christian Leaders.

Stand Firm in Faith and Love

Our school year is off to an amazing start.  The building is full of energetic young people taking on the challenges of their academic schedule, honing their skills in sports and fine arts, and building relationships centered in Christ.  The theme verse for this academic year is “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love.”  1 Corinthians 16:13-14. 

While the daily routine provides many opportunities for students and faculty to lift each other up in love, Wednesday morning Chapel services shares His love to us through scripture, singing, and fellowship in worship.  You are welcome to join us at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday mornings or watch the Chapel message on our Facebook page broadcast around 10:45 a.m.
