Martin Luther, the igniter of the Great Reformation in 1517, was as much an education reformer as he was a church reformer. And like the early church fathers who placed the Bible at the center of their school’s curriculum, Luther said:

“Above all, in schools of all kinds the chief and most common lesson should be in the Scriptures….But where the Holy Scriptures are not the rule, I advise no one to send his child. Everything must perish where God’s word is not studied unceasingly. When schools prosper, the Church remains righteous and her doctrine pure. Young pupils and students are the seed and source of the Church. If we were dead, whence would come our successors, if not from the schools? For the sake of the Church we must have and maintain Christian schools”.

Martin Luther, quoted in F.V.N. Painter, Luther on Education (St. Louis: Concordia
Publishing House, 1889), p. 168; as reproduced in CSE Magazine, “1,900 Years of Christian Schools and Their Impact on
Society”, available at ACSI.org

Faith. Hope. Love. An unbroken and unbreakable 1,900-year legacy of Christian Education. God, His word, our prayers and the gathering together of the saints. These are the timeless and unchanging spiritual principles, from God, through His word, and passed from generation to generation by a great cloud of faithful teachers that compel the reopening of our school for the 2020-2021 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

My door is always open for questions, visits or personal needs. I look forward to working with you in the education of your children this year.
Mr. Funk

As a body of believers, we are called upon to be constantly in prayer (I Thess. 5:17). These weekly notes will list different prayer items that I hope you will remember as you spend time in prayer each day. There are always more prayer items than listed, but we ask that you give special attention to these! Please pray that the Drive –Thru Fundraiser is a huge success this year. Pray for the students and teachers as they prepare for the upcoming Terra Nova testing and as they finish up the school year!

BBQ Sponsors

If you have any connection with a local business, or an individual that would like to support NKCS, we ask that you consider picking a form letter from the school office and ask for sponsorship personally. Again our BBQ is our largest fundraiser and if everyone gets involved we can make it a great success. There is a list of some of the local vendors in the school office.

Terra Nova Testing

We will be testing April 12th through the 16th. It is very important that your child is here all week. Please do not schedule appointments or vacations during this week. It is hard on the students and the teachers to find time for retesting. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast during testing week. Please talk to them about doing their best and trying on the test but also not to stress over them.
