Encouragement and News From Your Principal-

Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! We had a most productive, blessed, and memorable week of learning, growing, and serving! This week in chapel our students from Preschool through Eighth Grade rejoiced in the truth shared with us in Psalm 25:5 that the God of our Salvation guides, guards, and teaches us! We learned about the blessings of forgiveness, eternal life, and salvation we are offered in and through baptism, and also conducted a science experiment demonstrating the forgiveness Christ give us through faith in Him during each chapel service. We also learned some new songs that remind us of this! We thank our Eighth Graders and their families for working so hard to provide us with a pizza lunch Friday and food for our Family Fun Night as part of their D.C. trip fundraising.

What a blessing it has been to be in the classrooms observing and teaching! The light, love, and joy of Jesus has been evidenced particularly in the kind conversations taking place on campus, students helping and encouraging one another, and the smiles on the faces of our students on School Picture Day this week! We thank PTL and all of you for partnering to support our school ministry programs through the Charleston Fundraiser. The students were very excited to participate in the Kick-off Assembly on Wednesday!

We look forward to the future the Lord has prepared in love for us this year as we place our hope and trust in Him!

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all now and always!

In Christ’s love and service,

Principal's Message

Dear Christ Lutheran Students and Families,

Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Students, I thank the Lord for the many ways you have demonstrated your love for the Lord, for learning, and for one another throughout our first eight days of this school year!

Parents, I thank the Lord and you for your partnership and prayers as we seek to support, encourage, and provide your children with a quality, Christ-centered education. I pray that Back-to-School Night was a most memorable, informative, and blessed time for all in attendance.

Please join us in praying for the Lord’s blessing as we:
· begin our girls’ volleyball and boys’ soccer season.
· prepare to launch our new hot lunch program.
· participate in PTL’s annual Charleston school fundraiser.
· prayerfully plan to expand our extra-curricular afterschool programs.
· establish a middle school chapel praise team/band and sound/tech team.
· support mission work and projects through our offerings and service.

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6

In Christ’s love and service,

Encouragement From Your Principal -

Dear Christ Lutheran Students and Families,
Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I thank the Lord for each of you and lift you up in my prayers with love and thanksgiving as we begin this new school year! May the Lord bless us all as we partner and grow together in faith, wisdom, knowledge, love, and service to our Savior and others. May His love, joy, and peace fill your hearts today, throughout our school year, and always!

We look forward to further sharing our prayerful plans for the new year and progress thus far in our mission and vision at Back-to-School Night this THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th.

We had a wonderful beginning to our school year as Preschool through Eighth Grade students, parents, and staff gathered together for worship, praise, and prayer! I had a chance to visit every classroom and pray with each class on the first day. Each class received “Starburst” candy and a note and prayer of encouragement from me to remind them that they are “stars bursting with potential” as they trust in Jesus and share His love! The LORD reminds us of this in Daniel 12:3 – “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”

May these words of our Lord affirm to you His steadfast love and faithfulness as you trust in Him in all and through all the joys and challenges of life:

“So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”
Proverbs 3:5-5

In Christ’s love and service,
Charlene Soon
Principal

Welcome Back to School!

Greetings Christ Lutheran Family! We are so excited to see you back on campus for the 2022-2023 school-year as we focus on our verse of the year:

"Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in your all day long." Psalm 25:5.

Thank you for your continued partnership while we remain on mission to "Support those who have faith in Jesus Christ, present and live the gospel of Jesus Christ to all and develop the God-given gifts of students and families."

We have 41 new students joining us this year along with 7 new staff members. Your Christ Lutheran teachers and staff have been working diligently behind the scenes preparing the campus and classrooms for your return. It is our hope and prayer that we have a smooth first day of school. It will take all of us working together with extra grace and patience to navigate the busy parking lot and find our new classrooms. Your Christ Lutheran staff is here for you! Please let us know how we can help as you prepare to return to school.

In Christ, Samantha Fulton, Assistant Principal
