embracing a life of service

Share Christ with our Words, Service and Resources

When we SHARE Christ, our hearts are in the right place and we are becoming more and more like Christ. You have influence among those around you: family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, community members, etc. God has placed these people in your path that you might be his representative, a messenger of his grace and mercy. It is important for you to know that God has empowered you with His Holy Spirit; He has trusted you and He will work through you to influence his children around you. 


As we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, we cannot help but overflow with a life of service. There are abundant opportunities for us to serve others all around us. We want to help guide you on that journey, as you discover how he plans to use you as an agent of his grace and a proclaimer of the Gospel message.

Parent Involvement Program (PIP)

Each school family is required to donate a minimum of 20 service hours to St. John’s Lutheran School. More than 20 hours will be gladly accepted, but can not be carried over to the following school year. Single parent families will be required to donate a minimum of 10 service hours. Preschool families do NOT have required PIP hours, but may earn hours towards their required 20 by serving at the preschool (if they have older children at St. John’s). The persons donating the hours may include parents and grandparents or any family member over the age of 18, who has completed the Protect My Ministry volunteer screening. 

One-half (1/2) of your required PIP hours may be from Other Ministry Service Areas. At least one-half (1/2) must be from the School Service Areas. Parent Involvement Program (PIP) hours must be completed by the last, regularly scheduled day of the school year. Report cards and graduation diplomas will not be issued until hours are completed or funds for hours not completed have been received by the school office. PIP for the 2016-2017 school year runs from June 9, 2016 – June 9, 2017. The person donating the hours will be responsible for having their service slips filled out and turned into either the contact person or to the school office. Additional details may be found in the School Handbook. Special Note: Other options for involvement may be considered for approval by the Principal.

PIP Hours for Other Ministry Service Areas

St. John’s Lutheran School is a ministry of St. John’s Lutheran Church of Orange. It is our sincere hope that, in completing the required PIP hours, you consider giving your time to assist more than just the school. Serving others with our lives, in the end, is a matter of the heart. Jesus is concerned with what we do with our words, service and resources because he is concerned about where our hearts are.
