Parent Letter - 3/17/23
Dear Parents and Families of RCS,
The final installment of our WARRIOR series is about Responsibility. The Bible talks about a hierarchy of responsibility as Christians – First to God, then to family, then to others. In Colossians 3:23, it says, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men…” Everything we do should be done from a perspective of honoring God and done as an act of worship to Him. In serving our family, we read in 1 Timothy 5:8, “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” Providing for our family’s spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being allows us to demonstrate our love for our Savior by being His hands and feet. The same is true for others, that we “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). There is no greater witness for Christ than what we do to show others who He is. As St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Preach the gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words.”
This past week, all students in grades K-12 had the blessed opportunity to take part in our spring Spiritual Emphasis Week. It was a week of hearing God’s Word, interacting with peers in small groups, and having fun and fellowship with students and staff. This week impacted many students, including many who gave their hearts to Christ for the first time!! God is moving, and we are excited about all He has for Warrior Nation in the coming days and weeks.
Open House yesterday was a big success, as 11 more families toured the school, met with teachers, and heard about the many great things RCS offers students and families. Please continue to partner with us in prayer for the incoming families God has chosen to be a part of Warrior Nation. If you know families that want to explore RCS or Christian education in general, encourage them to call and schedule a personal tour with me or plan to attend the April Open House on Thursday, 20 April, at 6:30 p.m.
Speaking of partnership, don’t forget to check out the updated completed project list found here on our website. We are in the planning phase for other upcoming projects to continue the improvements. Stay tuned to find out how you can get involved!
