FAITH - What does faith mean to students at Lutheran Unity School?


  • Worshiping together every Wednesday during chapel 
  • Singing at one of the association churches with friends on a Sunday morning
  • Walking around the EAST campus neighborhood singing Las Posadas songs
  • Participating in the Children’s Christmas service and attending two services because a sibling or two is older or younger than you
  • Memorizing Bible verses for a grade
  • Receiving your First Bible in 2nd grade
  • Making first communions
  • Being confirmed


These are just a few of the things which come to mind for a student at Lutheran Unity School when we think about faith development.  I pray that each student’s faith will continue to grow as they head into the 2016-2017 School Year.


FAMILY - What does family mean to students at Lutheran Unity School?


  • Spending time with parents and extended family at school activities
  • Hugging school friends at the end of the day as if it is the last day of school
  • Student council meetings at lunch time  at EAST and WEST
  • EAST & WEST Student Council planning Field Day via Skype and executing it
  • Performing Donkey Tales for family and friends
  • Sharing A papers with everyone
  • Working together to be the best we can be and to try and do what Jesus would have us do


Family is important to us all.  When you are in a small school community everyone feels like family.  We will be very excited to see each on the first day of school!


FUTURE - What does the future mean to the students at Lutheran Unity School?


  • New classes, new teachers, new friends, a new beginning, and new opportunities to share the love of Jesus! 
  • Unity between teachers, students, staff, families, campuses and the four Church Congregations 
  • Watching the faith of students, teachers, families and staff continue to grow 
  • Encouraging students, families and teachers to strive to become life-long learners
  • Continue to spread the Gospel 



May the Lord bless you and keep you may His face shine on you through the new School Year and always.


Enjoying His Work,
