The athletic programs at Lincoln Christian exist to support the mission of the school – challenging and encouraging each student’s spiritual growth by teaching and modeling genuine Christian character.
Athletics provides an arena for Christian growth that is unique to the rest of the school environment.
These experiences develop fundamentals of the Christian faith: humility, selflessness, love, unity, self-discipline, courage, perseverance, hard work and sacrifice.
The objective of our program is to succeed, but the primary goal of our program is to strengthen each student’s relationship with Christ and to glorify Him.
At Lincoln Christian, we view art as an expression of beauty and creativity. This takes many forms for our students from vocal and instrumental music to drama and art.
Exploring the arts is another way to develop critical thinking skills in our students and we’re thankful of the way we’ve seen students step into their strengths and bring glory to Christ.
Singing praises to God is what we do at LCS and what better place to do that than in our choir! Students of all ability levels are welcome to join our Choir which performs at several concerts throughout the year. A select group of students from the Choir also get to deliver Singing Valentines each February!
Vocal Music time is a highlight of each day for elementary students. We sing praises to our Lord and we use music to help memorize scripture to learn truth. Students perform a breathtaking Christmas concert as well as at Grandparents Day and at the Spring Concert each May.
First-quarter brings the band outside to the field to learn a full marching competition show. Upperclassmen provide leadership to the underclassmen as well as opportunities for Drum Majors and Color Guard. The Band competes at 3 local competitions each fall as well as performing in Lincoln’s Veteran’s Day Parade.
Our students can begin playing a string instrument in 5th grade and continue to have a strings class throughout high school. Many of our string students have received music scholarships at many great programs including Wheaton College, Moody Bible Institute and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The LCS Varsity Jazz Band is the 2 time defending State Champions! Jazz Band is an auditioned group made up of Saxes, Trumpets, Trombones, and a full rhythm section including Guitar, Bass, Piano, Trap Set, and Vibes. They perform each year
Concert Band serves as the foundation of all instrumental music at LCS. They play a wide variety of music throughout the year including Patriotic Music for our Veteran’s Day Chapel, and traditional Christmas music to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
We have an outstanding preschool – 12th grade art program that has received numerous awards from the Nebraska State Visual Arts Competition in watercolor and ink, scratchboard, pencil and acrylic painting pieces.
Our student organizations allow students to build life skills outside of the classroom. These groups provide unique learning and social experiences while cultivating a unified school community.
We’ve enjoyed watching students grow academically and spiritually through these organizations. Our hope is that these groups build strong bonds between our students and an even stronger connection to Christ.
Chapel Worship Team
For secondary students, the worship team is an integral part of our chapel. Every Friday, the worship team leads students in music and worship. These students are given an opportunity to share their gifts to glorify the Lord and encourage their fellow students.
Primary Chapel occurs every Wednesday during the school year. Many pastors and teachers are invited to come teach.
National Honor Society
National Honor Society (NHS) is composed of junior and senior high students who have a 3.6 or higher grade point average. Our National Honor Society requires a service component for all members with past projects including work with City Impact, the Lincoln Crisis Pregnancy Center and the People’s City Mission.
Spiritual Emphasis Week
One week a year is called Spiritual Emphasis Week. This week is used to intentionally focus on God’s Word and our walk with Him.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) at Lincoln Christian has a strong huddle. We believe in “Doing Sports God’s Way” and being a testimony for Christ in all activities and sports. There are currently over 30 students actively involved in our huddle.
We encourage students to stretch their faith through missions trips. We’ve sent students to serve others in Mexico, Nepal, China, South Korea, Haiti, New Orleans and Kansas City. Students have also had the opportunity to attend Summit Ministries and the Worldview Christian Leadership Academies.
International Thespian Society
Our students conduct three different performances each school year. In the fall they host a play, in January they have their annual dinner theatre and in spring they host a musical.
Student leadership is provided by five members from every high school class. Each class elects the council members to different offices. Key events organized include Homecoming, Winter Dinner and Sadie Hawkins. They also serve the greater community by participating in Gifts of Love.
Yearbook / Student Newspaper
Students have the opportunity to write and produce the school newspaper, published 8 times a year, and also our student yearbook, The Lance.
Parent Teacher Fellowship
We are very blessed to have an incredibly strong Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF), as an important part of the school. Each year the PTF has numerous volunteer opportunities for parents to get involved with the life and activities at the school.
Every parent is strongly encouraged to seek out opportunities and actively participate in his or her child’s education. Children love to see their parents involved on a regular basis at the school and the school-parent relationship is strengthened by the investment of the parents’ time.
The Parent Teacher Fellowship organizes the annual Love Offering that provides our teachers and staff with a gift at Christmas. They also host an annual school-wide carnival in spring that is lots of fun and blesses many families.
Committees to serve on
Communicate school events and Christmas Love Offering for staff as well as help with marketing of Summer Fun Passes.
Plan and coordinate Back to School Coffee, Grandparents Day and help with providing and serving snacks for two all-school meetings.
Provide faculty/staff meals, recognize teachers/staff on appreciation days and help coordinate teacher snack days.
Plan new family orientation in the fall, connect host families with new families and find lead families to build relationships at our school.
Please contact Tammie Funke, our PTF President at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any additional information or would like to serve! Thank you.
Our booster club is made up of 14 representatives from all of the sports and activities at Lincoln Christian. Their mission is to support the activities by providing financial resources and parent support for the students, coaches and teachers.
Praying Moms Group
Our children and teachers face hundreds of decisions every single day. We believe that the power of prayer is available to us and we are called by God to pray for our children. At Lincoln Christian, we have several groups of moms that meet regularly to pray together.
