A Christian Perspective on Activities
Trinity Lutheran School is here to help train students for a life of service to God and man. As Christian students we are commanded by God himself to strive for excellence and competence in our area of participation. The ultimate goal of our striving must be to give glory to our God, who is the source of all of our talents. We strive for excellence in our endeavors so that God’s name might be praised.
The Christian student must also strive for excellence through adhering to rules of the activity. The student will exhibit the principles of a Christ-like witness.
Participation in activities at Trinity places a Christian into a special position. This position gives us a special opportunity to witness our faith through our actions and deeds, in our day to day living. The title “Christian” carries responsibility to Christ for everything we do, and duty to our role in life. We need to remind ourselves that our responsibility is not merely to avoid those things which we know will cause us problems, but to do all in our power to improve ourselves and help those around us.
Participation in activities offers us a great opportunity for individual growth through Christian fellowship. The development of group participation, the respect that we develop for each other as Christians (regardless of ability), the joy that we experience from participating helps each of us to mature into contributing members of the body of believers.
The Laudate Choir is a performing choir offered for sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students who love to sing! These students represent Trinity Lutheran School at school and church events, in the community, and abroad as messengers of the Gospel through the gift of song - Romans 1:16 and Ephesians 5:19.
Trinity Lutheran School offers Beginning Band to all 5th graders and Advanced Band to 6th – 8th graders who have completed one year of Beginning Band or private lessons. The Trinity bands perform a Christmas Concert and a Spring concert every year which allows the band members to show their god-given talents and share God’s love through their music.
Trinity Lutheran students who participate in Laudate Choir, Band and Drama events must honor God through their words and actions by staying in good academic standing and showing Christian citizenship. Students who do not adhere to the above statement cannot perform or participate at outside events sponsored by Laudate Choir, Band and Drama. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
