Statement from the Pastors of the Springfield Lutheran High Association


We, the pastors of the congregations of the Springfield Lutheran High Association, unanimously state our support for Principal Glenn Rollins, the Board of Directors, and the current faculty and staff. They have been entrusted to carry out the work being done at Springfield Lutheran High School, which is our congregations' Lutheran High School. There is much promise and possibility at Lutheran High. It is a tremendous outreach and mission opportunity in our community. It provides an excellent high school Lutheran education for any families who wish to enroll their children there. There is a beautiful new addition to the building that has been long in the making. Academic standards and expectations continue to be strengthened. Thanks be to God for this gift of our Lord!


Please pray for the continued work being done at Lutheran High. Please pray that the Gospel of our Lord, which “is the power of God for salvation," would continue to be taught and heard there by faculty, staff, and students alike. Especially, pray that our Lord would keep us all ever-mindful of our Lord's desire for us: "Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:8, ESV)
