  • Applied Christianity HS

    Applied Christianity classes lead the weekly chapel services for the student body. They lead through Bible readings, skits, dramatic readings, etc. During the second half of the school year, students have the opportunity to write and create their own chapel services. This class fosters spiritual growth, creativity, and responsibility. It's also a lot of fun!

    There are currently two HS Applied Christianity classes: one class for 9th/10th graders, and one for 11th/12th graders. Students are permitted to take Applied Christianity only twice in their high school careers, and students may not take the class two years in a row.

    Participation in Applied Christianity is by application only, and membership is not guaranteed. Students must regularly attend church services as part of the class requirement. Students must also receive excellent recommendations from their teachers and be prepared to submit a statement of faith. If accepted, Applied counts as a theology credit.

    Applications are made available in early spring. Students can sign up for Applied Christianity when they fill out their schedule. If they have signed up for Applied on their schedule, an application will be delivered to them. Students will be notified of their acceptance/non-acceptance within a few weeks of the application due date.

  • Applied Christianity MS

    As an academic class, MS Applied Christianity (which is for only 7th and 8th graders) provides students an opportunity to lead weekly worship at Faith Lutheran. Students enrolled in Applied Christianity receive their theology credit for this class.

    This dynamic and ever changing class allows students to perform in skits, create the order of worship, lead liturgy, and share their faith based on the weekly chapel theme. Students will be challenged to think about how faith related topics relate to their lives and the lives of their peers as they take an active role in living out the school's mission statement: Everyone Prepared, EVERYONE SAVED.

    However, this class is by application only. The application process generally begins in late February after students have selected their classes. All students selected for this class must be active members of a local Christian church as well as willing to openly give a statement of their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior on their application.

    Archived chapels featuring both MS and HS Applied classes can be viewed on the following link: http://www.faithlutheranlv.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=119667&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=video

  • Model UN

    What is Model United Nations?
    Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the actual United Nations. The FLHS MUN Team provides students the opportunity to learn about and debate global issues, improve their critical thinking and public speaking skills, better understand and practice diplomacy, all while simulating the committees, debates, and activities of the real United Nations.
     
    What does a Model United Nations student do?
    The FLHS MUN Team prepares for and attends MUN Conferences held throughout the United States and internationally. At the conferences, the students act as delegates of their assigned country and sit on simulated United Nations Committees to debate and resolve current international issues. To prepare for the conferences, students actively research, debate, problem-solve, and write proposals on world issues.
     
    How will Model United Nations benefit me?
    The skills developed during MUN help the students prepare for college and careers. The students will gain an unprecedented knowledge of world affairs. The public speaking, research, writing, critical thinking, problem solving, diplomatic, and leadership skills are all things heavily recruited by premier colleges and universities. MUN can make students stand out to colleges and scholarship committees. The MUN experience also promotes cultural diversity and a deeper understanding of the interconnected, global society we live in. The MUN Team is part of the FLHS Justice and Advocacy program and satisfies the J & A extracurricular requirement.
     
    When does the Model United Nations Team meet?
    The MUN Team meets every Thursday from 7:00-8:30 and one Saturday of each month from 9:00-12:00. Additionally, the team will attend 4 conferences during the year, lasting anywhere from one day to four days.
     
    Are there any requirements to be a Model United Nations team member?
    Students must be academically in good standing at FLHS, attend a minimum of 2/3’s of the practices, and attend at least two conferences per year. Additionally, students are required to prepare and submit a position paper (3-5 pages) prior to each conference they attend.

  • Prayer Warrriors

    PRAYER WARRIORS
     
    DESCRIPTION:
     Prayer Warriors offers students the opportunity to pray for the people they know and love (their peers, teachers, friends, and family) while simultaneously praying for people they’ve never met who live half way across the country or even the world. This club offers opportunities to spend quality, uninterrupted time with our Creator, to give all our cares and worries to God as he has directed us to do, and to escape from the troubles of this world for just a little while.
    EXPECTATIONS:
    Prayer warriors are expected to show up to two prayer meetings a week on Monday mornings and Friday mornings at 7am. Outside of meetings, it is requested that the warriors continue to pray for anyone and everyone. Most importantly, warriors are expected to always be willing to pray for someone no matter when or where they may receive a prayer request. Any prayers shared with a warrior are expected to remain between God and the warrior unless the prayer request reveals a situation in which one or more persons are in danger, in which case it will be reported to a counselor. In keeping with club protocol at Faith Lutheran, attendance will be taken at all meetings.

    GOALS/PURPOSE:
                The purpose of Prayer Warriors is simply to pray. We have a direct line to the Creator of the universe, the redeemer of our souls, the sustainer of our faith, yet we take advantage of that and forget how graciously God has given us the gift of prayer. The only goal of this club is to teach the warriors to give all their cares and worries to God while remembering to give him praise and thanksgivings. After that, the warriors will learn to let God take control and watch as his mercy and grace floods the sin and sorrow of this world, not because of anything we did, but because of his love for us.

  • Social Norms Student Group

    The FLHS Social Norms Student Group is a group of high school students who care about communicating the truth to our community. In every community, business, organization, or school there are misperceptions. One of our goals is to help correct those misperceptions. The results of our social norms surveys show that both parents and students have lots of misperceptions. That facts are that when it comes to risky behaviors, the vast majority of FL students are making smart choices most of the time. 
    We recognize that many times people want to hold on to their misperceptions, and will look for information to confirm what they already believe. In fact, everyone in the community is a ‘carrier’ of either accurate or many times inaccurate information. For these reasons it is important for us to have an ongoing accurate information campaign. Our messages are not guesses or assumptions. They are taken directly from the survey data, and they focus on the many positive behaviors of the majority here at Faith Lutheran. 

    By maintaining an accurate information campaign, we are confident that we will empower the silent majority of students to continue to make smart choices and live within their value system. Finally, we also hope that as Christians, our efforts will encourage students to live as Christ would want us to live. 

    Please check out our posters and video messages that focus on the many positive choices that our Faith Lutheran High School students are making every day. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact the project director
