At Lutheran High School, activities are an integral part of student life because they allow students to build their leadership skills, extend their learning beyond the classroom, and develop their God-given talents and abilities to reach their full potential.  LHS offers a wide variety of clubs to enable students to pursue their interests, be of service to others, and have fun with friends.  At the beginning of each school year, a Club Fair is held to give students the opportunity to learn more about each club and consider which clubs to join.  At any time during the year, students may contact a club’s sponsor to inquire about club activities. Membership in school-sponsored clubs is recorded on the student’s permanent record and may be a positive factor in future evaluations of the student’s academic program.

Table Talk

Table Talk is a gathering of thoughtful people who desire to understand God’s Word, to consider our experiences in the world in light of our faith, and to help one another to grow in knowledge of the truth. The groups meets casually and informally after school for snacks and interesting conversation, during which they ask and discuss the important questions that they’ve been thinking about. They may consider current events from a Christian lens, engage in apologetics with another worldview, or learn of an influential philosopher or philosophical movement. Students test their experiences and knowledge and discern the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect, to satisfy the curiosity of our transformed and renewed minds.
