Our Near Mission is Trinity First Lutheran School which provides a Christ-based education for children from age 3 through eighth grade. Located in south Minneapolis, this school is in the heart of the community affected by the recent riots and unrest after the death of George Floyd on May 25. With assistance from Family of Christ and several other LCMS churches, Trinity First School responded by hosting two “Love Our City” Events in June to bless the neighborhood with prayer, conversations, and essential products including food, personal care items, and cleaning supplies.
The school’s ministry philosophy is holistic—they work on equipping all members of the family in all areas of life, not just students in the classroom. Many of the families who send their children to the School are unchurched, uniquely locating the school to share Christ in the school setting.
