Christ Lutheran School is a K-12 Classical Lutheran School serving mostly low-income students and families of many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Many of our students come from Christian homes, though most are under-churched or even unchurched. Only about 10% of our students are members of our church, though we pray that God will use our work to increase that number. Each morning, one of our pastors leads us in a chapel service, where the entire campus gathers together to be blessed through God’s Word. This year, each of our students has their own personal copy of our Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary. During chapel, students become familiar with the historic church year as they sing hymns, hear Gospel and Epistle lessons, and pray the collects for the current week. In addition, students quickly memorize the Office of Prime and the Order of Matins and are eager to say and sing the responses in each.
One of our goals when we started Christ Lutheran School was to try to connect our students to Bethany Lutheran College. This year, we have three high school students taking BLC online courses and for the first time this coming February, we are taking five high schoolers to Bethany for a recruitment weekend. We pray that the Lord will lead these young people to enroll there in the future.
