Saved by grace...
Every year, Abiding Savior Lutheran School chooses a theme that we live by. Our theme this year is "Saved by Grace" inspired by Ephesians 2:8-9, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." The school year theme becomes interwoven throughout the school as students study the scripture and in this case, dive in to what grace really means and how we are 'Saved by Grace'.
To further spiritual growth, students engage daily with their classmates in grade appropriate religion curriculum and prayer. On Wednesday, students come together for chapel to worship and listen to a message. Our students can openly worship Christ and develop their relationship with Him.
Servant leadership is referenced throughout scripture and it is important to our mission to encourage our students in serving.
Mark 10: 42 - 45 says "And Jesus called to him and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Abiding Savior students are responsible for taking care of our school facility and help daily by washing lunchroom tables and taking out the recycles. We encourage our older students to serve the younger grades through chapel buddies and reading buddies. Students learn that it is important to love one another through service and taking care of each other.
