Introduction To Our School
The purpose of First Lutheran School is to provide an opportunity for children of First Lutheran families and other Helena area families to receive a quality academic education within a Christian environment. The school provides a Christian education that nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, academic, and personal growth of each child.
The mission of First Lutheran School is proclaimed in Matthew 28:19-20: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The vision of First Lutheran School is to provide a Christian education that nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, academic and personal growth of each child. The school provides another means for First Lutheran Church of Helena to bring the Word and Love of God in Christ Jesus to more families.
In order to accomplish our mission and vision, First Lutheran School has established a curriculum that includes current academic materials and tools meeting the highest standards. The academic course work is interwoven with Christian principles as understood by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
The student body of First Lutheran School is comprised of First Lutheran Church families and other Helena area families. This mission has an outreach throughout the community since many families come from other church homes or have no church home. This gives First Lutheran School an excellent opportunity to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the connection with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
