The Mission of Trinity Lutheran School:

To share the love of our Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, Friend and Teacher though Worship, Service and Educational Excellence

Philosophy

W O R S H I P    

We believe that God creates and nurtures the body of Christ.  God shares His love with us through His Word and His Sacraments.  We respond to God’s love and express our faith through prayer, praise, thanksgiving, the study and reflection of His Word, and the knowledge of the Law’s demands and the comfort of the saving Gospel of Christ.     

Trinity Lutheran School will strive to develop within students:  
  •  Knowledge and belief in the Triune God as taught in the doctrine, history, and worship practices of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod  
  •  What it means to be followers of Christ  
  •  Knowledge and use of worship and prayer  
  •  Their faith by sharing with others 
  •  Lives of service to others 

​We do this by teaching students how to:   
  •  Recognize themselves as being a unique child, redeemed and forgiven by God Learn God’s Law and Gospel as found in the Scripture  
  •  Read and reflect on God’s word, developing a personal relationship with Christ Interact with others in the body of Christ
  •  Pray formally and spontaneously
  •  Accept and treat others as God’s children Worship daily in the classrooms and weekly in Chapel   
  •  Forgive and accept forgiveness  
  • ​ Practice Christian virtues as presented in Scriptures (Galatians 5:22-23)  
  •  Share their faith life through service and word 
  •  Respect their bodies as the temple of the Holy Spirit. (Corinthians 6:19)

We believe that students and teachers should help each other and the community model Christ-like compassion and love for all people.  John 13:35 says, “By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”

Trinity Lutheran School will strive to help each student: 

  •  Grow in their Christian love and compassion for others to better understand their needs 
  •  Apply their special talents for the sake of serving others 
  •  Develop their skills to live and work cooperatively with others.

We do this by teaching students how to: 
  •  Accept themselves as redeemed children of God who express their joy through service to others, their community, and the world 
  •  Become stewards of God’s creation through community responsibilities.

We believe that lifelong learners need to continue to apply their Christian principles and beliefs so that they may productively serve their Lord and others in a constantly changing technological world. We believe that lifelong learners must be able to think critically, analyze problems, identify appropriate resources, and explore and evaluate possible solutions.                    
​Finally, we believe that life long learners need to develop an on-going appreciation for knowledge, while contributing spiritually and intellectually to the world.      


Trinity Lutheran School will strive to help students:  

  • View and appreciate knowledge and learning as gifts from God for use in service to others value and appreciate learning  
  • Communicate effectively  
  • Set obtainable goals for themselves  
  • Develop the ability to use learning tools and resources to obtain and increase knowledge  
  • ​Develop a positive outlook in everyday living 
  • Realize the need to forgive themselves and others 

We do this by teaching students how to:  
  •  Use God’s gift of learning to continue to achieve goals consistent with His will  
  •  See learning as a building experience that successive knowledge builds on prior experience  
  •  Accept responsibility for their own actions and feelings  
  •  Form and ask pertinent questions
  • Read and listen for pertinent questions  
  •  Analyze written and media work for its value and the accuracy of its message  
  •  Plan, organize, and impart their thoughts by written or verbal expression  
  •  Develop their physical abilities  
  • Set goals and make plans to accomplish them and periodically reevaluate and adjust those plans in pursuit of success  
  •  Develop information retrieval skills by accessing a variety of information from printed material, interviews, media computers, and other technology  
  •  Use their knowledge and skills in seeking and exploring learning experiences  
  •  Develop their life skills to handle both successful and discouraging situations  
  •  Recognize their mistakes, and through identifying the situation, come to the realization that one can forgive and be forgiven
