Pastor Cecil's Farewell

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

On Friday the 23rd September, Sunshine Christian School held a special barbecue and assembly to honour Pastor Cecil Schmalkuche's ten years of service.  Pastor Cecil has been with our school since it became a part of the Lutheran schooling system over 10 years ago. His selfless service and humble nature has blessed countless students, staff and parents.  Always keen to greet students and visit classrooms, his time at the school each week was constantly in excess of expectations. This he did because he deeply believes in the ministry of this school.

We have been richer for Cecil being with us and while we will continue to follow his example, we will be poorer for his presence not being among us.  Christ commanded us to love one another and Cecil’s work at Sunshine Christian School has declared clearly that he is a true and humble disciple of Christ.  

On behalf of our community, we thank Cecil for his service. He has inspired so many of us.  May God bless Cecil in his retirement and may his example of service and love inspire the students, staff and parents of Sunshine Christian School.
