The Faith Lutheran College, Redlands Junior School aims to have all members of the school community develop a compassionate understanding of active Christian service. To this end students, staff and parents are challenged to develop a consciousness of the welfare needs of and issues in our Redlands community, in Australia and overseas with the purpose of practically serving Christ by actively responding through ‘hands-on’ ministry.
Each term a special service area is identified and students fund raise in special and fun ways. These activities have included Sunnies for Tsunami (decorated sunglasses worn to the swimming carnival for a gold coin donation), bush dress for Royal Flying Doctors Service, Loud Shirt Day to give deaf kids a voice and Crazy Dress Friday to raise funds for our local environment. Students also participate in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Box to fill shoe boxes for distribution to overseas countries and Koinonia Day to support activities of Lutheran World Services.
Students are also invited to make offerings in daily devotions for presentation by each class in the Chapel service. These offerings are used to support the education of Tamiris in Brazil and Catorina in Mozambique
