Jesus is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:17 (2017-18 Theme Verse)With the start of 2017-18 academic year just over a week away, we wanted to take a brief moment to share our unbridled enthusiasm for the coming year, by the grace of the One who comes before all, and holds all things together, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
A substantial measure of our joy stems from knowing our wonderful faculty and staff will teach and preach the Gospel message of Jesus to what appears to be a record number of approximately 275 new students and an estimated overall student body enrollment of 800 students. Thanks be to God!The 2017-18 academic year will also be historic as the Lutheran Church celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. We celebrate the Reformation which is first and foremost all about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 reminds us, “ For by grace you have been saved by faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast”. For more information, visit lutheranreformation.org. Soon, the school will begin sharing some of the various ways it plans to remember this important milestone in the life of Christianity and the Church. These celebrations will include campus observances as well as those planned in conjunction with our brothers and sisters in the Pacific Southwest District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
Finally, we are extremely encouraged and energized by progress made on our North Campus Development Project this summer. For those who have not been on campus for a while, solid progress has recently been made with grading, retaining walls, and infrastructure development. We anticipate buildings starting to go up during the month of October and, prayerfully, consecrating and opening the site in the second semester. All our project partners are working diligently as unto the Lord to complete the project at the earliest opportunity. In the interim, we ask for your prayers of protection for those who are laboring so faithfully.On behalf of the school’s Board of Directors, and the faculty and staff, we are exceptionally grateful for your confidence in, and support of, Crean Lutheran High School. We are eager to welcome our students back to soon, as we Press On to fulfill our mission statement of “Proclaiming Jesus Christ through Excellence in Education.”
