Fox Valley Lutheran High School (FVLHS) in partnership with families and Federation churches, provides students with a Christ-centered education preparing teens for lives of service and for eternity.

FVL's mission is to assist in training the leaders of the next generation. Biblical leadership calls for Christians to be "servant-leaders" following the example of the ultimate leader: Jesus Christ.  Growing spiritually is at the heart of FVL's mission to its students. Each student is enrolled in a curriculum of religious classes.  More than that, as a Christian high school, FVL strives to teach all subjects in the light of God's inerrant word.

As WELS women we believe that Jesus was speaking to each of us when he directed his disciples to "...go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Matthew 28:19-20
To this end we freely give of the time, talents, and treasures with which God has richly blessed us.

To accomplish this purpose, WELS Kingdom Workers will endeavor, under God, to inform Christians of the needs and opportunities that exist in mission fields around the world, to encourage Christians to become personally involved in mission work, to facilitate and coordinate volunteer efforts in mission fields.

Lord, give us unwavering faith to trust your promise to control all things for the good of your Church. Amen. ~ NPH 2004
