Vacationer Don & Marie wrote: “Feel blessed to have worshiped this morning. Thanks for uplifting us so that we can go out there and give them heaven!” A couple from Nova Scotia says: “”Thanks for 3 wonderful months of worship & friendship!” We proclaim the saving work of Jesus Christ, crucified and risen from the dead! Risen Christ Church is a member of an international church body called the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. We believe the Bible is God’s Holy, inspired Word. Scripture is God’s powerful love letter to a world that needs life and hope. Types of Worship Services All of our worship services focus on the Word of God, especially the Good News about Jesus Christ. The words we sing and speak during our services are poems of praise, paraphrases of Scripture, or (most often) direct quotations from Scripture. Additionally, our worship is sacramental, which means we often celebrate Communion during our services. However, our services differ somewhat in style of music. Our Majestic Praise Worship uses musical instruments such as the acoustic guitar, keyboard, bass, and drums to lead worship. Our Classic Grace Worship uses the church organ and piano to lead worship. In addition to our regular Sunday morning worship services, we celebrate special worship services. The services that celebrate our Lord’s birth are Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. The services that celebrate our Lord’s resurrection are Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. The dates and times for these services are found in our Special Worship Schedule.
Risen Christ is a nationally accredited school (NLSA) offering an education of academic excellence with a Christian world view since 1976. Small class sizes and multi-aged classrooms allow students to learn at their level and afford students a more personalized education. The addition of an online high school allows students to continue their secondary education in a flexible environment which permits students to pursue extracurricular interests, career path choices through internships and meaningful service learning projects.
National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) is a process of self-evaluation followed by a visit of trained objective observers to help Lutheran schools improve the quality of their programs. The process is completely voluntary and available for every school operated by one or more congregations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. NLSA is a rigorous national accredited process designed to evaluate schools based on their unique purpose as Lutheran Schools. It helps schools evaluate not only quality of the academics and programs, but also most importantly the spiritual dimension of the school. The “Standards for Lutheran Schools” and report forms are similar to those used by other accrediting agencies, both secular and religious. There are many benefits to accreditation.
