Devotional Thought:
In John 14:15, God says “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” As we read this verse, we must realize that the love being spoken of here is agape love, or as it can be defined, a willful delight in the object of love. What a great definition to apply to this verse. When we commit our lives to Christ and He becomes the object of our affections, our desires and motivations become to please Him, follow Him, and keep His commandments. A life lived with Christ as the object of our affections and love will stand out to those around us. This isn’t a matter of religiosity or checking off a list as we keep His commandments. When we love Him, our hearts will be set not on the things of this world and the temporary attractions of life, but on the eternal value of knowing Christ and following Him.

In Christ, Mr. Barnhart, Diretor of RCS Global

“Fabulous Five” As Reported By RCS Teachers:

I have asked each teacher to let me know the most fabulous thing that happened at RCS in the last week. On Tuesday mornings, Mr. Huemoeller, Mr. Warner, and I go through them and pick the “Fabulous Five” to share with parents.

  1. Mrs. Grunow reports: While filling out the ABOUT ME posters in Jumpstart, one of the questions is ‘Where do you want to go?’. Most students write Disneyland, LEGOLAND, etc. A new third grade student wrote: “My school. I love it!”
  2. Mrs. Benefiel reports: My second grade students showcase their map skills and community pride! Click Here
