Face2Face Ministries returns to CKCS

CKCS was able to see the final product of our Clay for Kids event on Nov. 3. All the clay tiles that were made by staff and students were returned to the school and hung in the foyer in the form of a Cross. A big thank you goes to the team who hung the heavy project on the wall Monday night. Students waited anxiously Tuesday morning for Miss. Delhommeau, who spearheaded the project along with parent council, to pull the sheet back to reveal our creation. The final product was definitely worth the wait, students and teachers enjoyed trying to find their clay tiles among many others the entire week. Our clay Cross will remain on the wall of our foyer for many years to come. It is a wonderful reminder of how our many differences and unique students in CKCS, combine together to make a wonderful collage that glorifies God.

The biggest highlight of the week was the visit from Face2Face Ministries. Students and staff alike were abuzz with the anticipation of Nov. 4. The entire school met in the gymnasium in the morning and welcomed Ryan and Shawn to our school. CKCS started the retreat day with singing, fun, and laughter. Ryan and Shawn caught all the students attention with a unique introduction that included students from the crowd. According to those two, our own Charles Ramos found the cure for cooties, Joel Gustavson was an all-around cool kid, and Kirklind Bachmier, Madison Swaren, and Jesse Jarmin can do the world’s best rendition of “I’m a Little Teapot”.

Throughout the day, classes were split into divisions and went to the the gym for their own individual sessions. All sessions however, revolved around the theme of “God loves me As I am”. Ryan and Shawn used games, funny videos and personal stories to show students that how they see themselves is not how God sees them. God sees past all of our mistakes and failures and loves us for who we are. They illustrated to the students that we should not define ourselves by worldly items, but as children of God. One of the most influential metaphors used that day was that of a house-cat and a lion. Many people are content to see themselves as a house-cat and are content in that role; however, in reality God has created us to be lions. By the end of the day, students were inspired to not just settle, but to seek out the full purpose that God has set for their lives. A huge thank you goes to Ryan, Shawn, and Face2Face Ministries for an amazing and spiritually moving day.
