National Lutheran School Week is Jan. 23-27, 2023 and it's an opportunity to celebrate with 1,854 schools nationwide and give thanks to God for the gift of Lutheran schools to students, families, and communities. The theme this year is Making Disciples for Life and is based off of Matthew 28:18-20 “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore 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.”
The school and church will celebrate with several activities. The weekend of Jan. 21-22, students will serve during the church services. The weekend of Jan. 29, the first and second grade choirs will sing during church. Throughout the week in between, the students will have special theme dress days, a targeted chapel offering, the school geography bee and the talent show. Students will be GOing with their chapel buddies to four fun activities in the school on Tuesday afternoon. We invite you to GO see the Talent Show in the gym on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. All week long, students (and parents) will have the opportunity to leave notes in compliment boxes for the teachers in the school lobby.
To celebrate NLSW at Trinity, these are the school special dress days. Whether you are a school family, a church family or on the other side of the world, dress up and share your pictures with us on Facebook or Instagram using the hash tag #TCTNLSW.
