Mexico Mission Trip 2018

Posted by Mai Choy on Feb 6, 2018 5:22:06 PM

A few weeks ago, a team of 34 middle school and high school students traveled to Ensenada, Mexico to serve and learn.  The goal was to build a home for a family in need but the end result turned out to be so much more.   Read and watch the highlight video to learn about the mission trip and how our students grew in heart, soul, and mind.

Esther the Comfort Queen Part 1

Posted by Courtney Burns on Jan 9, 2018 5:31:00 AM

We are so pleased to introduce the newest member of the Faith Family - Esther!  Esther is a two month old Goldendoodle.  She will begin working full time at Faith during the 2018-2019 school year but will be a regular visitor to campus during this training year.  I’d like to take a moment to share more information about Esther, how she was “hired”, and what her role at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School will look like.

The Gift of Presence

Dearest Faith Families, 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (in my best Andy Williams’ voice!).  The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes…I hope everyone loves the Christmas season!   Around Faith Lutheran, our students, faculty, and staff will enjoy some well deserved time off to spend time with family and friends.   And maybe open some presents.

4 Reasons for Christian Education

Posted by Stephen Blank on Nov 28, 2017 5:37:00 AM

“Of course you’d send your kids to Christian schools…You and your wife teach at one…”

Yet, our family would fare better financially if we went back to the public school our children were in two years ago.  So then, “Why would I send my kids to a Christian school?”

Posted by Dan Buikema on Oct 17, 2017 5:16:51 PM

Students today can seem more involved, well-rounded, and engaged then generations before.  The result: BUSY teenagers.  What can we do to support and mentor them as life gets stressful?

What Happens Next?  Helping Your Kids Through Last Week’s Tragedy

Posted by Courtney Burns on Oct 9, 2017 1:33:14 PM

 Adults have spent the last week helping children process the events of October 1st.  As life slowly begins to return to what will be the new normal in Vegas, many are left wondering what conversations are left. How will we know if our kids are showing signs of trauma?  As a mother, the wife of a first responder, and a counselor at Faith Lutheran, I have guided many discussions this week and understand the work that still lies before us as we all recover. Much of that work will continue with you.

We're on a Mission

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Sep 22, 2017 5:00:00 AM

A few years ago, my wife and I traveled to Israel.  One day while at the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, a bus filled with Israeli soldiers from the Israeli Defense Forces pulled into the parking lot.  I asked our tour guide what they were doing.  He explained that soldiers are toured around the entire country so they learn the history, culture, beliefs, geography, and people of Israel.  He quipped, “Too many soldiers go into battle, and they don’t know what they’re fighting for.  We make sure that doesn’t happen in Israel.”
