January 25th – 29th is a week of nationwide celebration in Lutheran Schools as teachers, staff, and students celebrate Lutheran Schools and Lutheran Education. We praise God for our Lutheran Schools where we can learn about God and share our faith with each other!
The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod has provided the following information about National Lutheran Schools Week:
National Lutheran Schools Week provides the network of over 1,900 LCMS preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work in Lutheran schools.
In this, Lutheran schools thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children they serve and for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with students and their families.
National Lutheran Schools Week gives schools the ability to proclaim these great blessings within the communities they serve. Lutheran schools are amazing incubators for faithful witness of God’s love through Christ by teachers and students alike.
“Sent to Serve” is the theme for the 2021 National Lutheran Schools Week celebration. The associated scripture verse is Matthew 20:28 which says: “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
