Tournament News – The soccer team had the league tournament this past weekend in Frankenmuth. In their first game, CTK battled Peace, Saginaw, and was victorious in a very close game. In the championship game, CTK came up short when they wrangled, for the first time this season the host, St. Lorenz. Great job on a second place finish soccer team and Coach Maust (with a special guest appearance from the soccer team mascot, Olive).

The A-Girls volleyball team won their first game on Friday playing at Immanuel, Frankentrost, against Bethlehem, Saginaw. CTK then took on St. Lorenz, Frankenmuth on Saturday morning. They continued to play for God’s glory and won again, punching their ticket into the final round! They took care of business in the championship game against St. Paul, Flint. The girls bumped, set, and spiked their way to a first place finish. Great job girls and Coach Williamson!

Students in grades 5-8 will have an open house format where teachers will be available for all of times listed.

There is a prayer group that meets on Mondays from 8:15-9:15 called Moms in Touch. This group of mothers meet in the Great Room at Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Chapel Offerings for August – November are designated for the Wittenberg Project. The goal of the Wittenberg Project is to honor our Lutheran heritage as we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by nurturing and strengthening the faith of Christians and introducing the Christian faith to non-Christians. Through development of a Christian education and outreach center in the very birthplace of the Reformation, we will attract students and visitors, promote confessional-Lutheran theology, and open doors to Gospel outreach and works of mercy.  For more information, please visit  http://thewittenbergproject.org/.

Mr. Kaiser

I think I need to wash my hands after typing this. Mr. Bunke and the student council has asked that this Friday, all students need to wear their choice of either green and white or yellow and blue. I have heard there is a big college football game this coming weekend. For those who could care less, please wear scarlet and grey like the principal.

Christ the King has been BLESSED already this year when we asked for donations to purchase new books. God spoke to the hearts of supporters of CTK and gifts were given to help the library. I want you to continue to follow your heart to support our school and I have a new opportunity that I think may intrigue many of you.

For the past eight years, CTK has fielded a FIRST Lego League (FLL) team, sponsored by Nexteer Automotive, to compete against other elementary schools across our region. This program encourages discovery in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and applying their knowledge to everyday situations.

Our CTK Robotics Team will design a self-guided Lego robot, solve and present a solution to a real world problem, and participate in team building activities. The season culminates in a regional competition with 20 to 30 other area teams competing at Freeland High School on December 6th. Students and adults are welcomed and encouraged to attend the regional competition to cheer on our CTK Robotic team as they compete. There are some expenses that are not covered by the Nexteer grant/scholarship. If science peaks your interest and you would be interested in financially supporting the CTK Robotics team, please contact Coach Jeremy VanTol {(989) 674-2947 or jeremyvantol@outlook.com} or contact the school office. You can research more about the FIRST program on the website, www.usfirst.org

I would like to continue to ask that you make every effort you can to show the importance of Jesus Christ in your child’s life. One way of doing so is by attending church on a regular basis. Secondly, I ask that after church has ended, you give one more hour of your time to God for learning about His Word by attending a Bible class. This will also be a chance to have your child attend Sunday school class to learn more about Jesus Christ.

I would like to show you a little math as to why having your child surrounded in Christ’s love is so important to me. In an average year, if you do not miss a single Sunday, you receive on average about an hour of time hearing God’s Word during church. If you attend Bible class, that is a second hour of hearing God’s Word. If you count special services like Advent or Lent mid-week services, the total amount of time spent in corporate worship is around 120 hours per year. Not bad.

The devil works wonderfully when you and I are unaware he is doing his deeds. The average grade school child spends around 28 hours a week in front of the television. This would total 1,456 hours of secular television versus 120 hours of Jesus Christ. But the television time does not include the amount of time in front of technology (computers, Iphones, etc.). Screen time hours for an average child near 30 hours per week which total 1,560 hours. This is a scary statistic.

When I read about this, I was shocked. I even ran the numbers to make sure this was correct. Sadly, IT IS! I simply ask that you continue to immerse your son or daughter in God’s Word whenever you have the chance. Read a Bible story with them. Have a family devotion with them. Say a bedtime prayer with them. Every little bit of contact with God’s Word will strengthen their faith. Start small and continue to progress to a larger goal (family devotions three times a week). May God continue to bless you and your family. If you need help with some ideas of beginning family devotions, I would love to offer some ideas to you or suggest you talk with your child’s teacher, Pastor Boyer or Pastor Stolarczyk, or Chuck McGathy as well.
