Religion

Foundational to all we do at Our Savior is our Christian faith. Proverbs 22:6 states that we are to "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." At every grade level, we train up the students at Our Savior in the scriptures. Many of our classes make use of the Voyages curriculum from Concordia Publishing House with lessons that give students a chance to directly interact with the narratives of the bible while seeking to connect lessons to their daily lives. Additionally, we have weekly chapel services that are held in the church sanctuary. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued to offer chapel online for students and families to participate in.>Learn More
