Principal's Corner

  

Spring Greetings from Christ the King Lutheran School. It is my hope that the cold white frozen stuff stays away and we begin to see traces of warmth and life as spring begins to try to turn the corner. But we need to be realistic that this is Michigan and weather changes in the blink of an eye. As we look at the bland, lifeless landscape, we should need to reflect about how our souls are sin-filled. But we then think of the Giver of Life and His awesome mercy for you and me. God takes our souls and at Baptism washes them as white as the aforementioned white stuff with the crimson blood of Christ. This is the perfect time to reflect on this imagery as we enter the Lenten season of the church year. CTK and our supporting congregations would love to invite you to special mid-week worship opportunities. St. Paul Lutheran Church in Unionville has a Lenten meal starting at 5:30 PM and a Lenten service at 7 PM. Immanuel Lutheran Church has a Lenten service at 4 PM and 7 PM and a Meager meal at 5 PM. I would love to worship OUR Lord and Savior with you during these additional worship opportunities as well as on Sunday mornings at these churches.

Christ the King Lutheran School has two very important dates for the month of March. The first date is Tuesday, March 6th. CTK will be hosting preschool registration for Little Knights preschool for the public enrollment at this time. Little Knights Preschool offers two, three, and five day programs with either half or full day sessions. Priority will be given to the full day session. Please come out at 3:30 PM to meet with Mrs. Jenni Vermeersch and her preschool staff as they register your child for 2017-2018 school year. One week later, Mrs. Sharon Werschky will be hosting the CTK Kindergarten Meet and Greet at 5:45 PM. This is a time where parents will be able to meet both Mrs. Werschky and myself and hear about the rigors of Kindergarten class procedures. If you are interested in either meetings, please call 989-883-3730.

By now you have seen that I am a strict believer in Matthew 18. I will continue to stress to everyone that the first action Christ commands us to do is to speak to the individual with whom we have a conflict. If a resolution does not occur, then find another party who is willing to help moderate the situation. I simply ask that we as an entire school family continue to follow Jesus’ plan for peace. I will continue to pray for you and your family. If you have a prayer request, please let me know. Plus, there is a box outside the school office that a prayer group is willing to pray for your situation as well.

Knowing that I want Christ to be emphasized in your home, I ask that you take a spiritual faith walk with your family each week. Find some time to sit down and read God’s Word, attend church, and read Bible stories. Make an effort to immerse your son or daughter in the love of Jesus Christ. Give them as many opportunities as possible. Surround them with friends who share that same faith of Jesus Christ. Allow your children to come to COLLIDE Youth events when they are held. We need to make sure these young men and women are ready for the battle of a lifetime that will last a lifetime, until Jesus Christ calls us to our heavenly home.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Christ the King Lutheran School. I would love to talk with you if you have any questions about CTK or if you have any questions about our sponsoring congregations, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Unionville or Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sebewaing. Also, if there is someone you know who has been interested in Christ the King Lutheran School, please pass their name onto me so I may begin a dialog with them about their child’s faith in Christ. Again, the school office phone number is 883-3730.

I pray that you make a difference in God’s ministry this week.

In HIS Service,

David Kaiser, Principal

I would like to make an earnest plea to all parents of Christ the King. These very few years spent at a Lutheran school will provide a lifestyle that most children will emulate. My plea is that you take the time to show how important it is to give time to Jesus each week through Sunday worship and devotions held at home. I know that time is a precious commodity when it comes to family and you may not be able to have devotions each night with your family. I would ask that you sit down and eat dinner as a family and either begin the meal or end it with a small devotion – Portals of Prayer, Arch books, etc. Also remember that the Board of Elders from both churches have passed a policy about worshipping twice a month. If you have any questions, please ask your home elders about the policy.

I would also ask that you think about attending Bible study and taking your child to Sunday school. The more we are able to immerse your child in a loving, Christian atmosphere, the less likely the devil will be able to lead OUR children away from Christ. Please check your church for starting dates for Sunday school.

My normal office hours are from 8 AM - 4 PM, with exception to days when I will be away for a meeting.
