Weekly Parent Letter - 8/23/22
Dear Parents and Families of RCS,
Welcome to the Opening Day edition of the weekly parent letter!
The book of Psalms begins with Psalm 1:1-6: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law, he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore, the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.” It begins with a promise of blessing but with conditions. Blessing does not come to those who listen to the words of the wicked, congregate with sinners, or sit with those who like to stir up dissension. Rather, our blessing comes through reading, meditating, and sharing God’s Word.
As we prepare for the much-anticipated return of our students, we know that the success of RCS this year hinges on our partnership with you, centered around the Word of God. With that in mind, I would humbly ask the following of you throughout this year:
- Pray for strength, health, and peace for our staff and students, who will spend many hours working hard this year. Also, pray for a smooth transition for new families and students joining the RCS family this year.
- Speak words of blessing over Warrior Nation. When we speak scripture over a situation, the battle is fought in the spiritual realm.
- Share testimonies of God’s goodness and share prayer requests for your needs. Our staff love to pray with students and for students and their families; please give them the chance to be a blessing to you through prayer.
Remember, this is God’s school. His will is going to be accomplished this year as we walk in obedience, fellowship, and His strength. Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
