CCLS Family Commitment
CCLS FAMILY COMMITMENT
We value the partnership between our congregation and school, as families grow in discipleship, and children are prepared and equipped to for a lifetime connection to Jesus and His church (because while we all graduate from school, we never graduate from being connected to God’s people!). This only happens when our school, congregation, and families are committed together in that effort.
Your involvement is not, of course, merely for your family, but it strengthens the entire body of Christ: from families with children at other schools, to older adults and young couples. Your involvement is crucial, which is why Webster Gardens devotes 25% of its budget to Christian education. To that end, our CCLS partner families at Webster Gardens commit to the following:
- REGULAR WORSHIP PARTICIPATION AT LCWG: As a CCLS family in partnership with Webster Gardens, we recognize the value of worshiping together, and will model worship for our own children and for our congregation. We will attend worship consistently together, affirming the expectation that we will worship together at least 75% of Sundays (39 of 52 weeks each year).
- MODEL DISCIPLESHIP: As a CCLS family in partnership with Webster Gardens, we will model behaviors and spiritual disciplines in our home (i.e. praying and reading God’s Word together, serving others, engagement in ministries of our church) that will encourage our children to grow as disciples.
- DEMONSTRATE GENEROSITY: As a CCLS family in partnership with Webster Gardens, we will model biblical stewardship of God’s resources entrusted to us, returning the first fruits of our income back to the Lord, and sharing in the costs associated with a Christian education by way of tuition for each student enrolled. We recognize the purpose of our congregation’s significant support of Christian education, and that it can only be sustained when families, also passionate about CCLS, join in this effort.
The Lutheran Church of Webster Gardens is committed to helping each family grow together in the Christian faith, and develop their children into future leaders in our church as well as our society. We are committed to providing tools, opportunities for training, and other resources that will encourage your family to Know and Enjoy God (worship); Read and Reflect on Scripture (daily Bible study); and Serve and Share the Gospel (use your spiritual gifts, talents, time and financial resources to serve others so that people are connected to Christ and His Church).
