Lutheran High School
of St. Charles County

Spiritual Life

Lutheran High School is Christ-centered and believes that each individual student is a unique child of God full of potential, and LHS serves to nurture students’ spiritual growth and prepare them for lives of Christian service. As Christians, we believe that we are saved by grace through the work of Jesus Christ.

Students will have daily opportunities to grow in this faith as the word of God is proclaimed in a variety of settings. Every Monday and Friday morning, the entire LHS family gathers in the gym for a brief devotion, singing, and prayer. Each Wednesday morning, a pastor or youth worker from a local Lutheran congregation leads a more formal chapel service and shares a message with students and staff. On Tuesday and Thursday, students gather in small groups for devotions and prayer, led by selected juniors and seniors. Every LHS student also completes courses in Old Testament, New Testament, Doctrine, and Christ and Culture.

In addition to these formal opportunities to study God’s Word, students and staff also engage in living out their Christian faith. Teachers start or end class with prayer, teams close practices and games with prayer or singing, and LHS students travel to Lutheran grade schools and lead chapel for their students. Many LHS students and staff are actively involved in their home congregations as well.

Lutheran High School is a member school of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and over 70% of the faculty have their Lutheran teacher certification.
