Christ the King College invited the Salt and Light Community, a religious group of youths, at Anakan, Gingoog City on September 10, 2018 at Mo. Ignacia Gymnasium to whom in their person extended the love of God to all CKCians.
For the second time, Salt and Light Community offered its services to the CKC family through conducting a praise and worship activity. CKCians enjoyed the night through dancing, singing, and listening to the hymns of the Gospel songs and the talk given by Mr. Carl Christian M. Galope, one of the members.
“As youths, we should not forget to honor and worship the name of God and offer everything to Him, we should always show love despite all the trials we face in life for we have a living God who is bigger than our problems”, said Galope.
Galope left a verse to all CKCians to continuously remind them how great our God is. The verses are taken from Ecclesiastes 12:1 “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them” and Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
The program concluded around 7:30 in the evening with a message of gratitude delivered by Mr. Pericles Aninion to the invited guests and to all who prepared and shared their time to the said event.
For the first time in Teacher Education Program’s history in Christ the King College, a jaw-dropping preparation has been made along with its classy red carpet, well-arranged fancy tables and well-prepared luscious food at Mo. Ignacia Gymnasium, only to host its first ever “Night of Success” on the 20th day of October.
TEP Officers decided to celebrate the anticipated event after the stressful final exams. This served as their reward party after the 1st semester’s uptight battle. TEP students really prepared for the said party for they looked elegant and sophisticated with their black, white and gold outfit, a perfect blend for the night’s cordial ambiance.
With the theme “One heart, One mind, One success” the goal of the TEP officers headed by Mrs. Sheena Marie Engarcial was to encourage and to motivate the aspiring educators to pursue the teaching career for it is the noblest profession.
To meet this goal, TEP Officers invited special guests who were once part of the TEP Family and a product of its very own institution. They were Mr. Jayson Digamon, Ms. Ericka Braga, and some of the proud LET passers; Ms. Mary Joy Licayan, Ms. Aiza Colis, Mrs. Juverlyn Salamangca and Mr. Lord Raph Aguilor.
“As teachers, we do not only teach the mind, touch the heart, but also transform the lives of the students”, said Digamon in his long inspirational message.
“We should aim to top the LET not just to pass the LET, so if ever we failed to top the LET at least we passed the LET”, he added.
Before the night ended, the TEP Officers together with their program dean, Sister Ma Felicisima L. Cruz RVM and the special partaking of Mrs. Joselita Canios, extended their appreciation through giving certificates to those students who have shown efforts, loyalty, and service to the Teacher Education Program during the first semester of the SY.2018-2019.
