RCS Eagle Update

The RCS theme for 2017-18 is, “Know God” from John 17:3. “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

The RCS mission is to provide a Christ-centered education which is able to equip students for daily living and eternal life.

This isn’t a mere know God, as I know my neighbor next door’s neighbor, Jimmy. He’s a nice guy, a good father, a great Christian educator. If my green waste can is full, Jimmy lets me put green waste in his can. But I really don’t know Jimmy, I haven’t spent any quality time with Jimmy; he is just an acquaintance.

“Know” in John 17:3 is about depth and quality, a deep knowing, one that has intellectual comprehension, as well as a relationship component. It is a knowing that suggests a profound personal relationship, one that is developed over time. It is about a growing relationship built over time. It is about being intentional in building the relationship.

To fulfill our mission and equip students for Eternal Life means that we must provide them with opportunities to “Know God.” One opportunity we provide is through intentional reading of Scripture and praying together. A second opportunity to know God is through corporate worship, experiencing Him as part of a community of worshipers, being the body of Christ.

Let me encourage you to intentionally spend time together as a family this year reading Scripture, praying, and worshiping God as well.

In Christ, Mr. Hearne, Superintendent
