The Educational Ministries of Grace Church

Last week I received a wonderful letter in the mail from Rick Bernhardt, the Senior Administrator of Lititz Christian School (LCS), which was sent to everyone who made a financial donation to the ministry of the school over the past year. LCS and MorningStar Christian Daycare, Preschool and Kindergarten are ministries of Grace Church. Perhaps you are not real familiar with this vital educational aspect of our ministry. Below are a few items of interest that were included in the letter I received:


Lititz Christian School was founded in 1978 by Grace Church. It originally educated students in grades 1-8 before adding grades 9-12 in 1996, and MorningStar Daycare, Preschool and Kindergarten in 1999.


We focus on the student’s spiritual and academic development. We do this by partnering with Christian families to provide a Biblical, academic education that prepares young men and women to honor Jesus Christ in scholarship, vocation and lifestyle. We believe that every child deserves the heritage of a knowledge of God and His Son, and without it, that education is not complete. It is our desire to see each student grow mentally, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually in a safe and nurturing environment.


Our well-qualified faculty enriches strong curricula and experiential opportunities to maintain a level of excellence that prepares students for a higher education and a life that honors Jesus Christ. Academic classroom teachers hold a 4-year college degree or higher from a recognized college or university.

A Future Goal:

What makes Lititz Christian School and MorningStar different from other schools and childcare centers is the spiritual aspect of the programming and teaching. It is Christ centered, therefore an ongoing goal to meet students where they are and move them to where God wants them to be is imperative. A great asset to our ministry will be a Spiritual Formations leader who will give spiritual direction to the future of LCS and MorningStar.

As part of a new marketing strategy, we will be introducing our exciting new website in just a few weeks ( Please visit us online or in person to learn more about Lititz Christian School and MorningStar Daycare, Preschool and Kindergarten and the exciting things that are happening in our school and daycare.

Amen, anonymous! This will be a key individual for our educational ministries. Now we must pray that God would provide the person and the finances for this key position.

When LCS started it did not go through 8th. Only to 4th.

I'm not sure, anonymous, I was just going by what my letter said...but then again, it is quite posible that I read the letter wrong. I'll do some checking!
