Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

God's love compels Peace Lutheran School to assist the parents of our congregation and community in providing a Christ-Centered, quality education for their children.

Home and School Cooperation

The Lord, through his Word, tells parents: "These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up" (Deuteronomy 6:6-7), and, "Feed my lambs" (John 21:15).

God has given parents the responsibility of child-training, which is to foster faith in Jesus Christ, and a life dedicated to his service. The pastors, teachers, and all others on the staff at Peace are eager to help you in this important task. Let us work together, constantly seeking God's blessing through prayer and his Holy Word. Then our success is assured.
