|THE PURPOSE OF PEACE LUTHERAN SCHOOL
As Christian parents and guardians we have the solemn responsibility to train our children in the Word of God. The Apostle Paul gave us the command in Holy Scripture, "Bring them (our children) up in the training and instruction of the Lord." Ephesians 6:4.
Realizing the importance of Christian education, Peace congregation established a Lutheran Elementary School in 1956 to assist parents in carrying out God's command to bring up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord. Our school accomplishes this goal not only by teaching God's Word, but also by teaching all other subjects in the light of God's Word.
We also realize that we must not only nurture those children found within our church but also reach out to the un-churched and to those who are seeking God's pure Word. Peace Lutheran School has a dual purpose. We strive to bring the Gospel message to those who are already in Christ’s fold; in addition we strive to bring the Gospel message to those who don’t know their Savior.
The mission of Peace Evangelical Lutheran School is to make disciples for Christ by using God’s Word to assist families in nourishing the souls of children and by providing a quality, Christian education that is rooted in the truths of God’s Word. We will reach out to the community by sharing the Gospel message and, in Christian love, modeling our faith. All this we do to the glory of God out of thankfulness and praise as we prepare students for this life and for eternity.
It is most fitting that we daily recognize the great blessing we have in our Lutheran Elementary School, thank our Almighty God for fostering it and preserving it and pray that it continue to be a proper instrument of the Lord to bring Christ to all nations. “Lord, grant, while worlds endure, we keep its teachings pure throughout all generations.”
