Principal's Message                                                               

Easter celebrations remind us why our school ministry exists.  On that first Easter morning, the Gospel writer Luke tells us that the women that had entered the tomb were perplexed and were asked by the angels there “why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but risen.” (Luke 24:5-6, ESV)  Why, indeed?  Had the women not heard it over and over?  Of course, they had.  And we need to hear it over and over, too!  In our modern world, people search and search for all kinds of ways to fill their lives for meaning.  They use electronics, T.V. shows, Instagram posts, sports, their children, and a whole variety of ways to which those angels from the first Easter could ask, “why do you seek the living among the dead?”

You see, the world offers tomb after tomb of empty promises and no fulfillment, but our living God offers us something better.  Our Lutheran school ministry exists to help children and their families know where to find the living Lord (Word and Sacraments).  Sure, we teach math, science, literature, reading, English, Spanish, music, history, and lots of other valuable life lessons, but our most important life lesson is to direct students to the source of eternal life, Jesus.

There are lots of ways that you can support this important ministry.  The easiest one is to show up.  When there are school events, be here.  Show the students of your school ministry that they are important to you—that the message of Jesus that you are trying to share with them is worth your time spent with them.  Volunteer during the school day, come to concerts, take in a sporting event and watch our Mighty Eagles soar!  Not sure how to get plugged in?  Ask a staff member (or call the school office!)!

Another way you can lend your support is to pray.  Pray every day for the students, parents, and staff of Cross Lutheran Church and School.  Pray that God would continue to life us up as a beacon of light in our community.  

Share your gifts!  Did you know that many of our students couldn’t attend school at Cross if it weren’t for generous donors like you?  People that go above and beyond their tithe to donate to the tuition assistance fund enable a Christ-centered education to be accessible to all students.  Every little bit helps, and when we all contribute together, we allow Christ to do amazing things!

Thank you for the part you play in directing children and their families to look for the living in the life-giving arms of Jesus!  I am proud to be in ministry with you!

In Christ alone, Corey Brandenburger
