Two Lutheran schools in Edwardsville had a grand celebration during National Lutheran School Week, January 22-28.

“Metro East Lutheran High School has had several activities to celebrate,” Angela Mueller, the school’s director of marketing and admissions, said Thursday. “Students and staff gathered together this week for an all-night vigil to pray for the school and community. We played and sang at services there, and some of our choir students were interviewed on part of KFUO Radio.”

Happy National Lutheran School Week when it arrives. They visited schools in Collinsville, Besalt, Edwardsville, and Stanton.

Meanwhile, the Trinity Lutheran Church at 600 Water Street in Edwardsville has been affected by the cold and snow this past week to ensure that the tradition of the Lutheran Church and the Synod of Missouri (LCMS) schools will continue for generations. Principal Kenneth said it did not prevent Kruger.

He said Trinity, along with other LCMS schools around the world, thundered with a fervor that transcended the usual celebrations at this year’s National Lutheran School Week (NLSW). NLSW is a time to give thanks to all his LCMS schools for their ability to worship and learn from Jesus in creative and thrilling ways in all aspects of school days, daycare hours and extracurricular activities. .

Trinity’s NLSW top dollar was $1,250 donated to a teacher at another LCMS school in the area who is fighting the disease. Gifts from the Trinity family, faculty and staff represent what NLSW is all about.
