Students attend chapel each week to worship and to be challenged to grow in their relationship with Christ. Elementary chapel meets on Wednesday mornings, while high school chapel and middle school chapel meet each Thursday. Each chapel service includes praise, prayer and a message from God’s Word. Various teachers, as well as area pastors, are invited to bring the message each week.
RCS recently went on a mission trip with an organization called Living Water International. For over 20 years, LWI has been drilling water wells in third world countries and providing safe, clean drinking water to people. The poorest people in the world actually pay some of the world’s highest prices for drinking water, and the water they get is less clean and less plentiful. The poor pay more in the form of lost time, health, education, and life, but also in monetary terms. More than any other factor, water scarcity keeps the “bottom billion” entrapped in a cycle of extreme poverty. In the end all of humanity pays the price.
Mission opportunities presented to our students remind them how fortunate they are and privileged to be living the lives they are afforded. They set out on these trips prepared to change the lives of the less fortunate but often return feeling they are the ones who are changed.
Each year, all of our high school students get away for a spiritual emphasis retreat called PINNACLE.
This is a required event that is held early in the fall semester. The cost for PINNACLE is included in high school tuition.
The purpose of this event is to build relationships, set a spiritual pace, and spend quality time among students and faculty. We spend 4 days and 3 nights at a camp where students enjoy games, ropes activities, free time and time to hear from God’s Word.
Community Service ... 410
The mission of Rosehill Christian School includes serving others and giving back to the community. Our desire is for each student to use their God-given gifts to serve others. The number 410 is taken from 1Peter 4:10:
"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10
All RCS high school students are required to give back to their community through service projects. Students accumulate these hours by being the "Hands and Feet of Jesus" to others. Service projects are coordinated through our Student Activities Coordinator. Community Service hours are required each year while attending RCS. High school students are required to earn a minimum of 25 hours per year toward this requirement. We encourage all of our high school students to participate in a summer mission trip through their church whenever possible.
"Doing the Stuff That Jesus Did" means … Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and visiting those who are sick or in prison.
