What is Faith All About at Saxony?

Fear Not – Stand Firm in the Lord! is the 2016-2017 school year theme based on Exodus 14:13 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Saxony emphasizes and encourages students to strive to Glorify God in everything aspect of life!

We are in affiliation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, founded upon on the teaching of Martin Luther and the reformers which can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

For God so loved the world that he have his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Service Hours

According to James 2:26, “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” In keeping with this belief, Saxony Lutheran High School has implemented, as part of the graduation requirement, sixty hours of service to be performed by students during their high school career. Split up by year in high school, ten hours of service freshmen and sophomore year are recommended with the junior and senior year of twenty hours of service.
After a student has completed their services, they should fill out the service hour record form (link below) and when completed, turn it in to their religion teacher.

Showing Love in His Service

Saxony has a program titled Showing Love in His Service (SLHS). The purpose of this program is to recognize the many Christian actions and attitudes shown throughout Saxony. At the end of the month, students who have been recognized by their teachers as SLHS will receive a special breakfast. They were nominated for a variety of reasons that may including: helping fellow students who are having trouble in class, volunteering to help teachers/custodians after school, being inclusive of all students and helping students who have dropped or spilled things in the hallway.

Saxony Lutheran High School strives to include the grace, faith, and scripture of God daily, along with these four core values:

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER

SLHS trains and develops Christian leaders for a lifetime of service. Each student is encouraged to explore his/her unique gifts. Positive peer and adult influences continue to foster this exploration.

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

DISCIPLESHIP

SLHS provides purposeful opportunities for students to practice and show their Christian character and share their gifts with others. There is regular encouragement and motivation for students to use their gifts to the fullest and to the glory of God.

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

EXCELLENCE

SLHS is Christ- centered school. A high quality education is provided by our staff. This value drives all academic and extracurricular activities. We strive to provide students with the facilities and resources necessary to achieve an exemplary education.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Colossians 3:23

COMMUNITY

SLHS furthers the ministry of area churches, especially the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod congregations and their respective schools. We strive to empower all who value a Christian education to attend out school regardless of financial circumstance. A safe, nurturing Christian environment is provided for all who enter our doors. Lasting partnerships are developed by providing service to and with others.

For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body – whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 1 Corinthians 12:13
