Things to Know this Week (May 3rd)

RCS Families,


April 30, 2024 will go down as an important date in our school’s history. Tuesday morning, we had our first official meeting with the City of Covington about our high school project! God brought together an incredible team to develop this property. Our Owners Rep, who has extensive experience in development projects, said this was “the best Pre-App she has ever been part of.” Even the city staff said that the city is “excited about what this project could be for the city.” God’s continued favor and direction was evident. There is an extensive process ahead, however, there were no red flags or roadblocks from this meeting! Thank you for your prayers and support as we develop our future high school together.

Grandparents Day Success

Last Friday over 600 grandparents and students created priceless memories. They enjoyed a taste of our weekly chapel, an interactive time in the classroom, and a Chick-fil-A lunch. We love our RCS grandparents and love seeing our students value their time together.


Encouragement and Prayer:

Today’s culture thrives on division. When something happens, we are thrust into different camps, requiring us to declare which side we are on. Often, this process occurs along ideological or political lines. Our friends and loved ones can move from family to foe in an instant. This is not God’s plan for us.


Instead of seeing people as potential enemies, the love of Christ should bond us together. The Apostle Paul addresses our relationships with one another in his letter to the church in Rome. Take a moment to read the following passage to see the stark contrast with how today’s culture would have us act:

“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:9-21.

Our starting point should be love. Love should bind us together, not divide us. Love should focus our attention on the needs of others, not toward self. Love should guide us toward harmony and peace, not strife and division. As followers of Christ, let’s reflect the love described by the Apostle Paul and not the divisiveness of today’s culture.


God, bind us together in unity, despite our differences. Help us to enter each conversation with the foundation of Your love. Help us to find common ground and unite around Your redemptive mission. We pray for our divided culture and country. Bring healing and peace. Give us Your mercy and grace today. Amen.


Have a great week!
