Grow photos
Lutheran classrooms—way to grow! Send a jpg (as an attachment) of your classroom in action. As a precaution, we will avoid revealing the identity of the students and school. The “best” photos will show some indication that students are in a Christian classroom (without specific identification of the school’s name). Send your photo to Selected photos may be posted on the LEA website and/or in issues of Shaping the Future.

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen”  (2 Peter 3:18 NIV).

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13
