We Are You – The Buller family

We are YOU … We are the Buller family

We were new to Messiah Lutheran School two years ago when Xavier was in 3rd grade. We recently asked Xavier how Messiah was different from his past school? He simply said,

“The teachers love me.” Read more…


We Are You – The Baksys family

From time to time, we ask Messiah families to share a story of how their family has been impacted by Messiah Lutheran School. This Fall, the Baksys family shared their journey from Messiah, to their local public school, and back again.

We are YOU…We are the Baksys family.

We are the parents of a sweet, funny, kind seven year old boy. Whether you are the parent of one or many, we are like you…we just want to raise our child to be kind and responsible. We live in a small town outside of Lincoln and have very little family support in the area. When Josh attended preschool at Messiah Lutheran School two years ago we were welcomed into a family that we didn’t realize we needed at the time.
We made the choice to attend a public school for kindergarten and truly missed the environment at Messiah Lutheran School and have chosen to come back. Josh thrives here where the teachers, staff and fellow students love him for who he is and provide the individualized care and attention that has allowed him to grow in his love for school, and more importantly, his love for Jesus. You cannot put a value on the intangible things that a student learns here: kindness and love, generosity and compassion. These qualities are found in all the teachers and staff to support not only the students but their families, too.

Quite often, we find that Josh will come home and end up teaching us just as many life and spiritual lessons as he is learning himself in school. In this life we all face challenges, loss, disappointment, and hardships but the love and support we receive from being part of the Messiah Lutheran School family brings with it peace and confidence to know we are not alone in this journey.


Mrs. Schmidt

Mrs. Schmidt shows God’s compassion through her listening ears. Some of the greatest needs that any child has are to be heard, understood, and accepted. Smiling from her mouth to her eyes, Mrs. Schmidt has a way of genuinely listening to the hearts of her students. And beyond the classroom, Mrs. Schmidt is committed to growing disciples who love Jesus with all their heart and are not afraid to live out their faith in their everyday lives. For the past year and a half, Mrs. Schmidt has been attending a discipleship immersion that is designed to teach church leaders a specific discipling rhythm that can be repeated over and over again to help people become closer followers of Christ.
