What does “Lutheran” mean?

At Zion Lutheran School, we’re proudly Lutheran–rooted in traditional, mainstream Christianity, and this is seen in our values–the same values you instill in your children at home. We love Paul’s words from Ephesians: “For it is by grace you have been saved…” Or, as Matt Maher sings, “We’re all broken, but we’re all in this together.” These describe our relationships with each other.

Here’s what one parent recently told me about the reason she loved our school: “It’s about the way that the adults here talk to the kids”. We support each other, love each other, treat each other gently, kindly, and patiently. We teach the Bible and share the Gospel in every grade, and our faith centers around John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
