St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian
believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run.  We are a
collection of people with different needs and
concerns and yet we are called to a unity
which grows from joining together in worship
of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit.  Each of us has different God-given
talents which we are called to use to witness
to our faith in God's love revealed through
Jesus Christ.  We are called and empowered
by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in
our faith in Christ and to welcome them
into the life of our congregation.

 Registration for 2014-2015 is now open.  We all want the best education for
our children. Because each child has unique gifts, needs, and challenges, the school setting
can make a huge difference in a child’s life. Please consider whether Carroll Lutheran
School might provide your child with the kind of educational experience that will make a
huge difference and the results will last a life time!  Carroll Lutheran School offers classes
for children in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. The school offers an excellent academic
curriculum. The teachers are passionate about the subjects they teach; however, they are
even more passionate about their students. Every child counts at CLS. Personal attention
brings out the best in each student. Music (choral and instrumental), art, physical education
and Christian education are included in the curriculum. Beginning in the fall of 2014, Carroll
Lutheran School will have a school counselor on site. The school itself is clean, bright and
inviting. It is truly a loving atmosphere in which to learn and mature.  More information can
be found on the school web site,
Learn more about how your child could benefit from attending Carroll Lutheran School by
attending the Open House on Saturday, February 22, 2014 or March 29, 2014 from 10:00
