National Lutheran Schools Week (NLSW), scheduled for Jan. 26–Feb. 1, provides the network of 1,950 LCMS preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work in Lutheran schools. In this, Lutheran schools thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children they serve and for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with students and their families.
NLSW gives schools the ability to proclaim these great blessings within the communities they serve. Lutheran schools are incubators for faithful witness of God’s love through Christ by teachers and students alike.
“Joy:fully Lutheran” is the theme for the 2020 NLSW celebration. The associated scripture verse is 1 Thess. 5:16-24:
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.”
