Every week, all students assemble in the school gym for a weekly chapel service. This service is a children’s service and helps the students learn various forms of liturgy and songs used in regular worship services. Classes contribute to the Chapel services by singing songs they’ve learned in Music Class. Chapel is led by Trinity’s staff or pastors, staff, or teachers from other Lutheran churches and schools in Lincoln. Parents and friends are invited to attend as often as possible.
Each year we have several special Chapel services including the 2nd Grade Bible Presentation Chapel, Pastor Appreciation Chapel, Veterans Day Chapel, V.I.P Day Chapel, and more!
Trinity also celebrates various church holidays at our chapel services such as Advent, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Easter, and the Reformation.
Chapel Offerings are brought weekly by students, teachers, and staff. These gifts are given to a project (church, missionary, relief agency, homeless shelter, etc.) selected and designated by the faculty and/or students. The Chapel offerings benefit a different ministry each quarter.
Tiger Traits of Testimony
-Triple T Award-
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16
The following nine key characteristics are traits we strive to instill in all students who walk through the doors at Trinity Lutheran School. It is our prayer these traits are introduced, supported, and nurtured in all of our students through their experiences here at school and at home.
Students can be recognized by any staff member for going above and beyond in exhibiting these traits. These traits are expectations of all our students so being recognized for exhibiting one of these traits is something noteworthy and remarkable. Not every student will be recognized. This doesn’t mean they aren’t exhibiting these traits, rather we are reserving recognition for those going above and beyond.
Parents, thank you for your partnership in encouraging, nurturing, and supporting these traits at home. When students are receiving the same message at home as they are at school, it shows that we are working together and are on the same page in helping our children develop life-long commendable character traits.
