Principal's Message                                                               

For Cross Lutheran Church and School students and parents, the beginning of May indicates an approaching end.  It is a REAL reminder that our time in the school ministry is coming to a close for another school year.  Celebrations and activities are being planned, and students, parents, teachers, and all the rest of our staff are entering the final push before summer days enter our schedules. 

At the PRESENT, we are focusing on the future.  For our students, it can be a time of fear.  Fear for 8th graders moving on to new high schools; fear for 4th graders moving to a new building on campus as middle schoolers; fear for others as teachers come and go.  It’s fear of the unknown and fear of change.  It’s good to know that our GOD is REAL and PRESENT in these times as we take the excitement and the fear and place them all in His loving care.  The changes our students are facing are inevitable, but we have a God that is with us in the midst of it!

As one connected to Cross Lutheran Church and School, you have played a role in helping our students hear the lifesaving message of the Gospel each day.  A school ministry such as ours takes a team of teachers, parents, principal, pastor, librarian, assistants, volunteers, and community members to make it work together and grow.  Thank you for the part you’ve played in helping to train up children of Cross Lutheran School in the way they should go.  The time, talents, treasures, and prayers you have lavished upon those affected by school ministry did not go unnoticed.  Our students and all those gathered to support them throughout the school year have been blessed by you. 

Our school year theme was Real. Present. God. Throughout this year, we have looked at various Psalms, and in particular, Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.”  It’s easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of the business of school and of life.  God reminds us in Psalm 46:10, to be still and know that He is God.  REAL. PRESENT. GOD.  When the waves of life are crashing upon us, God is REAL and PRESENT.  When changes are happening too quickly, and we don’t know how it will all turn out, God is REAL and PRESENT.  When we think we can’t make it one more step, God is REAL and PRESENT.  Our REAL. PRESENT. GOD.  has really been present this school year (and all those past, and all those future)!

We look forward to continuing to share these blessings in 2019-2020.  It won’t be long before we’re putting away the toys of summers and gathering to start another school year.  Please prayerfully contemplate how you might get involved in the school ministry in the fall.  Opportunities abound for you and your family to build relationships with the families of Cross Lutheran School students.  Get connected!  We’d love to have you help us continue to walk forward in faith even in the face of change knowing that our Savior will always remain the same yesterday, and today, and forever!

In Christ Alone,

Corey Brandenburger, Principal
