trinity lutheran school

Trinity Lutheran ChurchSchool is a very special place. As a school ministry we hold up the values of Christ, Curriculum, Character, and Community.  

First and foremost our school is a special place because we strive to keep Jesus Christ at the center of all things. Our Savior is in the middle of our daily instruction. Christ is at the center of our relationships as well. Jesus in the center means that our students learn how to express their sorrow over their sin and then have the blessing of rejoicing in the wonderful forgiveness that is ours in Christ.

A strong academic program is offered to students so that they can succeed in life. We also believe and teach that students with strong Christian character will be the leaders that are needed for the future of our nation, our churches, and our families.

Finally, we nurture in our students a belief that they can change their community and the world for the better.

We would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about the blessings of Lutheran Education. Please give us a call to set up a time to meet.

Being involved and interacting with children never gets old for Diane Connors.

Once a month, the retired school teacher gets her fill, hanging out with Jill Schmitzer’s4-year-old preschool class.

“They give me a lot of joy and make my day,” said Diane, who spent 14 years teaching kindergarten, second and third grade at Trinity Lutheran.

Diane Connors is part of a group of about 9 to 10 congregational members who gather at the school once a month to share their time and talents with Mrs. Schmitzer’s Monday-Wednesday-Friday morning preschool class.

“This is the first year doing this monthly with members of the congregation,” said Jill Schmitzer, who has 19 4-year-olds in her class. “I wanted the students to have an opportunity to build relationships with adults that are 2 or 3 generations older.”

The group, which consists mostly of retired congregational members, usually spends its 30 to 45 minutes playing games, doing crafts as well as working on curriculum-based subjects.

“It gives you a meaning and a presence,” Diane said. “Interacting with these youth is way better than any medicine you can get.”

For some of these youngsters, the opportunity to meet with these “special guests” is invaluable.

“It’s been amazing to watch the adults and children be so engaged with each other every month,” Jill Schmitzer said. “Some of these adults are giving the students more individual attention than they are able to receive on a regular basis. Some of the students do not have grandparents in the area, so this helps fill that void. Some of our more shy students end up thriving and really opening up. Some of our students who just don’t get the chance to learn to play games are loving the opportunity.”

So are the grown-up guests.

“It brings a joy to my heart being around these children,” said Diane, who also serves as a substitute teacher at Trinity. “I enjoy laughing, talking and just being with them and hearing them giggle. It brings a smile to my face.”

Follow me

The theme for 2018-2019 is: "Follow Me". This theme is based on Matthew 9:9: As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and He said to him, "Follow Me". And he rose and followed Him.

In this passage Jesus is laying the foundation for His church as He called Matthew and others to preach and teach. God also calls us to believe in the One who is life. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. We follow Jesus to the cross where He shed His blood for sinners like us. God does desire that we pattern our lives after His. However, we must remember that He lived His life without sin. We will never be able to live up to that standard as we sin and fall short of the glory of God every day.

We still have reason to rejoice, for even though we will never live a perfect life of following Jesus, He remains our Savior who suffered, shed blood, died, and rose again so that our sins will be forgiven.

Following implies that there is a leader. We will hold up Jesus as the best leader to follow. We will strive to partner with families to ensure that children have many Godly leaders to follow in their parents, teachers, and others.


Marvin Wyatt knew he needed to act soon – not only for the sake of his middle-school daughter’s education, but for her safety.

“It was time,” Marvin said. “I had to find a better and safer environment for Maci.”

It got to a point, where Marvin didn’t feel safe dropping Maci off at the public school, where she attended through seventh grade.

“She was afraid, I was afraid,” Marvin said.

A conversation with a co-worker eventually led to Maci’s enrollment at Trinity Lutheran School.

“I wish I would have done this sooner,” said Marvin, who is a divorced co-parent. “Being a single parent never makes it easy, but it was important for me to have her attend Trinity.”

It’s important to Trinity Lutheran ChurchSchool as well.

“Coming to Trinity has been eye-opening – it’s night and day from the public school,” Marvin said. “Trinity sat down with us, cared for us and opened your arms to us. It’s just been fantastic. It’s all about value, and Trinity provides an extreme value. At the end of the day, this happened for a reason, and we are so thankful it did.”

trinity School

For over 140 years our Lutheran school have helped children prepare for life in this world while growing in their understanding and faith in Jesus as their Savior from sin. God gives to us all the gift of forgiveness through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. God shows this to us in the Holy Bible; this is the source of our understanding of the relationship between God and man.

Trinity Lutheran School offers the opportunity for children to receive instruction and training in five specific areas of development:

  • Spiritual  
  • Academics
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Emotional

God has created each child as a unique person. Our curriculum is not simply academic teaching but is also an effort to nurture Christian relationships, both with God and with each other. Our prayer is that students leaving Trinity have grown close to the Lord, with a connection to Him strong enough to withstand the world’s challenges.
