Things to Know this Week (March 8)

RCS Families,

 

God is at work at Renton Christian! This week at chapel, 32 students publicly declared their faith in Jesus Christ though water baptism. Spiritual formation is a foundational element of RCS. When a student begins or develops their faith in Christ, we celebrate! So far this school year, over 50 students decided to make Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior! When this decision happens, we encourage students to connect with a pastor at their church to make that decision public. Many churches use water baptism to outwardly declare this inward transformation. Each year, we provide an opportunity for RCS students to be baptized at one of our chapels. It was so moving to see 32 students publicly profess their faith in front of their peers at chapel this week! Please join me in praying for each of these students. Pray that the commitment they made will carry them to adulthood and ultimately to eternity.

STEM Day Recap

Wednesday was STEM Day at RCS! Steamboat Studios spent the day with us. Each RCS student learned about different forms of forces and magnetism. They saw science demonstrations in an assembly and then performed hands-on experiments in the classroom with personalized science kits. It was a great day of inspiration and instilling scientific curiosity in each student.

 

Prayer & Encouragement:

This year I am reading through the Bible from the beginning. Right now, I am reading through the book of Numbers. I love this book, not just because I am a numbers guy, but also because it demonstrates God’s intentionality and provision for His people. The book of Numbers records the journey of Moses and the Israelite people through the Desert of Sinai after they left Egypt and on their way to the promised land. This journey was full of frustration, complaints, and hardships. However, it was also full of God’s provision, presence, and protection. The humanity of the people of God was on full display. God’s presence was clear through a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. God’s provision was miraculous by providing manna each morning and water from rocks. God’s protection from their surrounding enemies was powerful. Despite all of this, several times, the Israelites, complained to Moses for bringing them out of the slavery of Egypt. Why? I believe they allowed the hardships of the moment to suppress the promise of their future. The unknowns of the Promised Land and the challenges of the journey created more discomfort than the known reality of their past. God has a purpose and a call for each of us to fulfill His mission going forward. This applies to us individually and together as a school. God gave us a dream to see 100 students graduate each year, rooted in Christ, and equipped to change the world. Let’s remain focused on where God is calling us rather than where we were or any momentary hardships. We serve a faithful God. My prayer is that God’s presence, provision, and protection will remain on each person at Renton Christian. Please join me in prayer for God's continued clarity, wisdom, and direction.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Thanks,

 

Randy McMillan
