Athletics with a Higher Purpose
The purpose of Our Savior Lutheran School athletics is to allow students to learn teamwork, sportsmanship, and to develop their individual gifts and abilities within each sport. Our Savior athletes have regular opportunity to use their skills in competition.
Our Savior also believes that learning these lessons with fellow Christian teammates and coaches is a great blessing. Christian athletes can learn from the words of 1 Timothy 4:8:
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”
Our Savior promotes Christian attitudes in athletics and all extra curricular activities. I Corinthians 10:31 provides the direction:
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
By applying Christian attitudes and our God-given talents, we enjoy competitive contests against other teams.
