|Resources for Lutheran Schools Week 2010
During Lutheran Schools Week, as we celebrate our Lutheran Identity and the uniqueness of our schools, we need to remember the Gospel message that is given us through our Savior Christ Jesus. It is also our responsibility to remember that we are asked to go and tell the message to all we meet regardless of differences that we observe. These lessons are based on a variety of texts from the Bible related to being disciples of Jesus Christ. Enjoy, share and spread the Good Word!

|An Affirmation of Lutheran Schools Week
by Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson
During this week, when our schools will be celebrating Lutheran Schools Week, please accept the gratitude of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for your creative, faithful, joyful ministry of education. We are grateful for:
- Bringing strength and expanded mission to congregations through outreach into communities. Schools are unique because they are faith-based, community-connected, and congregation-centered, providing an excellent educational experience for students who would not otherwise enter a church building.
- Teaching the children who come to learn. These children learn about the world, words, and numbers, but they also learn about God’s love for the world and for each of them.
- Modeling inclusivity by celebrating the gifts of a multicultural student body and staff.
- Practicing generosity. Last year Lutheran schools raised over $5,000 to purchase supplies for schools recovering from last fall’s hurricanes.
Lutheran schools are places where God's work is done through our hands. Your ministries make a difference in the lives of your students, your congregations, and your communities. On behalf of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, please accept our grateful thanks.
