The teachers of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School personally and publicly bear witness to their faith in Jesus Christ. Teachers and students daily worship God and study His Word as found in the Bible. God’s law is taught without apology. The Gospel of God’s forgiveness through His Son, Jesus Christ, is taught daily with joy and relationships are based upon the Gospel and forgiveness. The school serves as a mission agency of our church, in that all students, regardless of church background or membership, are taught according to this philosophy. Physical evidence of the Christian faith throughout the school helps to define and bear witness to the school’s mission.
Using their God-given abilities, teachers, staff, and volunteers will strive for excellence as they use effective, current learning and teaching materials. Students are prepared to become responsible stewards of their talents and treasures in a joy-filled Christian life.
Our Redeemer holds high, yet appropriate, expectations for its students. Students need to be both challenged and helped toward success. Appropriate evaluation of student performance, both formal and informal, occurs before, during and after teaching.
We seek to develop the basic skills of learning; thinking; solving problems, making value judgments and decisions; and respecting self, others, and property. Our school also teaches children how to apply concepts such as individual responsibility, the common good, by grace alone, and living “by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20.
We serve families by assisting parents to carry out their parental responsibilities in Christian education. We promote a close relationship between school, home, and congregation.
We encourage parents to provide the primary training of their children, to have family devotions, and to take their children to weekly worship services. The school exists as a secondary partner in the Christian and overall training of their children.
