Parent Letter - 3/10/23

March 10, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

This week’s WARRIOR trait is a tough one to write about and especially to live out, as it contradicts our selfish nature to “do our own thing.”  That trait is Obedience.  When our first son was a toddler, he had a friend (my coworker’s son) who was on his porch one day playing with his toys.  When the boy’s mom came out and asked him what he was doing, he replied, “I have a plan, and you’re not in it!”  As a parent, you can imagine the flood of emotions and her desired response to such a seemingly indignant reply.  

Yet, even as adults, we often take the same approach to God.  We like to think we have a plan we have thought out and are convinced it is better than anything anyone else, including God, could have for our lives.  Romans 5:19 tells us, “For as by one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.”  The first man Paul speaks about is Adam, whose sin in the garden separated mankind from fellowship with God.  Jesus (the second man referenced in this passage) obeyed to leave his place in God’s throne room and submit to come to earth, live a sinless life as a man, and die a criminal’s death on the cross to take OUR place and our sin upon himself.  God has an amazing plan for you, your family, and all of Warrior Nation.  May we instead proclaim, “God has a plan, and I am definitely in it!”

Calling all golfers!!!  The annual RCS Golf Tournament is coming soon, and we still have space available. So, if you are interested in playing and channeling your inner Happy Gilmore, please follow this link to register -  Registration is also available on the RCS app.

This is just a reminder to check out the updated completed project list on our website.  We are in the planning phase for other upcoming projects to continue the improvements.  So stay tuned to find out how you can get involved!

Next Thursday, 16 March, is our third Spring Open House event.  As of this writing, we already have 11 families scheduled to attend.  If you know folks looking for a loving, Christ-centered school community, please have them call the front office at 804-276-3193 to register.

Then, next Friday, 17 March, March Madness comes to RCS!  Fathers and sons are invited to join Mentor Classic Ministries in the gym for an evening of college hoops, cornhole, and basketball contests.  We will have four games broadcast simultaneously and always have a great time of fellowship.  Please RSVP here, so we get enough pizza.

May the Lord bless you with his peace and joy this weekend!
