This week has been a week of prayer for members of the RLS family and our brothers and sisters on the coast.  There are several family members in our RLS family battling illness and recovering from surgery.  Pastor Jonathan Naumann, now serving in the Dominican, suffered a heart attack this week and continues to be in ICU recovering.  There are extended RLS family members battling Hurricane Florence and working to protect their homes.  Please join us in asking for the Lord's blessing and protection in these times of trouble, remembering our theme Psalm this year:  

God Is Our Fortress

To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.[a] A Song.

46 God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present[b] help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
    though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
    God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
    he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
    how he has brought desolations on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
    he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

WELL DONE!  Our middle/high students and their director, Mr. Driscoll, did a great job presenting the Shakespeare comedy, Midsummers Night's Dream.  It was a very enjoyable performance - Thank you for sharing your talents!

Fun, Fellowship, Family....
We've only been in school for a few weeks and already we've had four fellowship events.
August 19 - the Annual RLS Golf Outing, beautiful weather and a great time.  
August 14 - Back to School Night 
August 18 - RLS Staff and Family Night
September 7 - Dads' Night
We are a family, and families enjoy getting together for some fun.  We are grateful to share special moments together and create new memories.
Our RLS family is part of the larger Family of Christ.  Our school is all about Jesus and His love for us, His people.  Looking for opportunities to share our blessings is a way of life for God's people, and with the devastation that has faced so much of our country, there are plenty of ways we can help.
For the month of September we will be collecting money for Luther South Academy, a high school in Houston that had more than 4 feet of water in its building.  Soon, other regions of the USA will need assistance and we will be ready to serve.  Please keep these brothers and sisters in Christ in your prayers.  It is easy to lose hope in times of chaos, when it seems you've lost everything.  Take a moment to consider how  you would feel if you were in their shoes.  What would you want people to pray for?  How would you want people to help?  What could someone say to make you feel better? 
 
Thankfully, we are not in their shoes, we are dry, comfortable, and able to reach out an offer what we have be given, sharing it with others in need.  Let's give generously to our friends, and bring Jesus to them.
