Concordia Lutheran High School. This name means so much more to me than just a high school. I have met some extraordinary students here. They are musicians, athletes, actors and actresses, JROTC standouts, and so much more. They are students who are making their way through struggles and trials; students who want to lend a helping hand; students striving to figure out who they are and where they fit in.
I have the privilege of teaching in the theology department here at Concordia. I love my job. I love the students that I get to interact with every day. I see their struggles and joys. I try to guide them with Scripture and by example. Do I always direct them in the way of success? No. Do they always make the correct choices? Of course not. None of us do. But that’s one of the great things about what’s at the heart of this school. Love. Forgiveness. Jesus! If there is one thing the students here learn each and every day it is the fact that Jesus loves them. He cares about them. They are created in His image.
This fall my husband and I enrolled our youngest as a student here at Concordia. He is the last of our five children to make his way through this school. We send him confidently, knowing what this school has taught our children before, and knowing that the same message will be shared with him.
Concordia Lutheran High School is more than just a high school. It is a place where all students are given the opportunity to learn about Jesus. A place where they can learn and grow in the love, grace, and forgiveness of a God who loved us so much that he sent his Son for each one of us to do what we could not. At Concordia Lutheran High School students get to experience every day what it means to be a loved child of God — because that is what they are.
