LIFT’s Impact in the Community

Posted by Whitney Dotson on Aug 5, 2022 3:49:38 PM

The highlight of the LIFT Program (Living In Faith Together) is the semi-annual Service Day that happens in fall and spring at Lake Country Lutheran. This last year, LCL students were able to serve and work with over 25 organizations. These vary from association churches and schools to non-profit organizations, and many more in the Lake Country and Greater Milwaukee areas. A few of the organizations that LCL partners with include A Place of Refuge, God Touch Milwaukee, Life Striders, Hebron House, Redeem and Restore, Zachariah’s Acres, and Bethesda.

Mr. Caleb Cain, the LIFT Director, says, “This has given our kids some tremendous opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus and also open their eyes to their communities and the people around us. We hope to encourage a servants heart in our students so that it goes beyond just two days a year.”

Life 2

The purpose of LIFT is to build relationships throughout school including between different classes and grades. It’s a space where students discuss current topics and get into God’s Word so they can grow in faith together. Because each group is composed of students in all grade levels, LIFT also helps welcome new students and transfer students to the school.

This last year, LCL had 29 LIFT groups. At least one senior and one junior are leaders with a teacher advisor. These groups meet every Wednesday with the goal of student fellowship and relevant Christian discussion. These discussions and topics are selected by the student leaders. This helps encourage engagement in the Christian worldview discussions as the topics are relevant to our students’ high school experiences.
