Devotional Thought:
John 14:15, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”

Jesus says, “if you love me”. Love here is a verb, it is an action, it is not an emotion and it is not a feeling. The love Jesus is talking about is an action that believers are to undertake. What specific action are believers to undertake? They are to keep His commandments. Believers are to show their love for Jesus by doing the things that He says they are to do. This is easy to say but not always easy to do. In verse 16, Jesus goes on to say that God will be sending a Helper. Based upon the context of the passage, Jesus is probably referring to Ezekiel 36:27. The gift of the Helper, the Holy Spirit, enables believers to show their love for Jesus by keeping His commandants.

In Christ, Al Hearne II, Superintendent

RCHS Christian Ministry Team Second Annual Pancake Breakfast and Student Auction!

September 17th – 8:00am

This event will include an amazing pancake and sausage breakfast accompanied by a student auction. Ten groups of 6-8 hardworking high school students are offering their time to work for 5 hours that afternoon at your churches, farms, homes, businesses, etc. If you have anything that could use some work, consider purchasing one of these  teams!

There’s more! One of the missionaries from the Navajo Nation, who is a licensed contractor in the State of California, will also be offering his services.

And the entire Christian Ministry Team (20 students) will be offering their time for a full
day of work in October!

Tickets are being sold by all members of the team for $5 each or $20 for a family of five. All of the proceeds go to funding the 2017 Navajo Nation Missions Trip. You do not want to miss out on this exciting event!

“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.

Mrs. Suth – click here: Fantastics Week was fantastic! Fun costumes and games outside my window! Seems the students enjoyed themselves. Loved to see Mrs. Magee back in her hippie days!

Mrs. Haserot – click here: Seeing students excited for our RCE bulletin  board! #weareunique

Miss Hymphreys – click here: During the soccer game on Thursday, one of our players showed great kindness for the other team when a player fell with a leg cramp and our
player helped stretch him out right there on the field. (I have a picture.)

Miss Orluck – click here: This week I saw that my students were starting to develop a good understanding of the concept of whole and part in math.

Mrs. Francis – click here: I enjoy each week watching my students and the whole school praising God by singing in chapel.
