Principal's Message                                                               

The floors are shined.  The books have been ordered.  The faculty and staff are gearing up.  Supplies are in the stores.  It’s nearly time for another school year to begin.  As with each new year, our school ministry is framed with a new theme:  Real. Present. God.  It’s a theme that will be celebrated by thousands of teens and adults at the National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis next summer, and it’s the theme that tens of thousands of Lutheran school students will celebrate throughout the world during this school year.  We’re part of something big!  Inspiration for this year’s them comes from Psalm 46.  God is REAL and He is PRESENT now.  “[He] is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Ps. 46:1).   Our students will walk through the Psalm this year as we learn the powerful truths that God has lovingly placed in His Word.  

In a world that is filled with constant stress and change, Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”  Our school ministry is filled with opportunities to help students and their families take time for stillness and to recognize the REAL. PRESENT. GOD. at work in their lives.  We look forward to seeing how God will use you to share how he is REAL and PRESENT in your life this year.  As we gather as One in Christ at Cross Lutheran, our REAL. PRESENT. GOD. reminds us that we are One in Ministry.  All of our work here together is for a purpose—to gather around God’s Word and Sacraments, to grow in our faith, and to go and share God’s love with the world.  We do this as One in Mission.  As a Lutheran Church and School, we know that God is REAL.  We know that God is PRESENT.  And, we know, that we get to experience Him each day as we watch His plans unfold all around us!  I encourage you to find a way to be a part of the school ministry this year.  You are one of the many blessings of our fellowship together, and it is through you that each and every family at Cross Lutheran has opportunity to see and experience our REAL. PRESENT. GOD.
