Trinity Lutheran School in Alma recently celebrated National Lutheran Schools Week. NLSW is the opportunity for Trinity to celebrate with 1,885 schools nationwide and to give thanks for the gift of Lutheran schools to students, families, and communities. Churches and schools rejoice in a partnership and a shared vision for proclaiming God’s grace and mercy to equip the next generation of faithful Christian servants. We give thanks to God for the opportunity to touch the lives of thousands and thousands of children who attend Lutheran early childhood centers, elementary schools, and high schools. The NLSW theme this year is “In All Things” and is inspired by Colossians 1:17–20: “He is before all things, and in him, all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church ... [He reconciles] to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” This timeless theme empowers Lutheran schools to praise and share Christ in the sanctuary, classroom, STEM lab, choir room, playground, gym, athletic field, faculty lounge, office, and every place where God’s children and their leaders gather. While “In All Things” is the theme and goal for this special week, its emphasis is appropriate for every day of the school year. In praise and thanksgiving to God, teachers and students strive to do their best, seeking to do all things well, and when they fall short they are blessed to be able to seek the grace of God for forgiveness and then rededicate their efforts individually, and as a school, to glorify God and serve His people. Teachers and students look forward to NLSW every year. In the mix of spirit days, special guests, service-learning experiences, open houses, community projects, and the many other creative ways NLSW is celebrated, all can rejoice in the Gospel promise of eternal life, living in Christ’s victory, and proclaiming the Good News to one another and the world.

Trinity celebrated with dress-up days, a bowling trip for all ages, gift-making for the congregation, and a community service project. Students were asked to bring in household cleaning and beauty supplies that were needed by the House of Hope, Inc in Lexington, a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life of families affected by domestic violence. We collected 9 laundry baskets full of much-needed supplies! Trinity Lutheran in Alma serves over 100 students and is scheduled to open a brand new early childhood center in August that will be home to children 6 weeks to 4-year-old preschool.
