Who Are We
Garden Homes Lutheran Church is a part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We believe that all of the Bible is God's own word, breathed out upon the holy writers so that they wrote exactly what God wanted them to write. Since the Bible is inspired, it is also inerrant, that is, there are no mistakes in any respect in all of Scripture. Above all, we believe that all mankind is sinful from birth but saved by God's merciful kindness, through faith in Jesus Christ, not by good works or obedience to the law.
We, the members of Garden Homes Lutheran Church, are determined to proclaim the inspired, inerrant Word of God - with the urgency our circumstances demand - in order to win souls for Christ and to nurture them in Christ for all eternity. Since our Lord has placed us in an ethnically diverse community, we are determined to hold up our cross-cultural family of believers as an example of the true brotherhood among peoples possible only through the common bond of faith in Christ.
Our Commitment to Christian Education

Garden Homes Lutheran Church operates Garden Homes Lutheran School (GHLS) an elementary school, K3 through 8th grade, that seeks to educate the whole child: mind, body, and soul, within a loving, supportive school culture of high expectations and no excuses. GHLS is a Milwaukee Parental Choice School. Our curriculum is tied to the Wisconsin State Standards and provides a complete complement of courses for students that excel as well as those who struggle. Special education and Title 1 services provide additional support for students who need a little extra. Our school's ultimate purpose is to assist parents in their God-given obligation to bring up their children in "the training and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). A student body of 260 is nurtured by a caring and qualified staff of 12 teachers and 2 administrators, all holding undergraduate and/or graduate degrees in education. Six Educational Assistants (EA) are also employed to assist teachers and students. Classroom size currently averages between 20 and 25 students. GHLS is a member school of the 4th largest private/parochial school system in America (WELS) and is accredited by Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation (WELSSA) and the National Council on Private School Education (NCPSE).
