Interested in Volunteering at RCS?

A Police Information Check (PIC) is required for all volunteers and must be submitted to the main office staff prior to volunteering.


In order to obtain PIC the following procedure should be followed:

  1. Obtain a letter that must be taken to the City Police Station indicating your plans to volunteer in the school. The letter will be provided for you by the Main Office staff and must be signed by the principal of the school. The letter must contain your legal name and birthdate. By providing this letter you will not be asked to pay for your record check.

  2. Take the letter to the Police Station and complete the application for your Police Information Check.

  3. Upon successful completion of your PIC bring the document to the RCS Main Office.

  4. Your PIC remains active during the school year. As long as you volunteer each year you will not need to provide another PIC. If you do not volunteer at the school for one year a new PIC is required.

  5. There is no guarantee that a PIC will be processed while you wait. At times additional steps need to be taken prior to the Police issuing a successful PIC. Plan ahead to ensure your PIC is completed prior to volunteer commitments.

Marshmallow Madness: A Devotional from Families Matter Most

This week: Family Time Training

“… If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” 2 Corinthians 5:17


This week I am going to showcase another wonderful family ministry. In addition to being licensed as a presenter with the National Center for Biblical Parenting, I had the privilege of meeting the founder and president of Family Time Training, Kirk Weaver, when I was in Houston for training. I appreciated his genuine heart to teach biblical truths using family fun. As you’ll see, these activities are meant to be super exciting -the neighbourhood kids will be inviting themselves over! Head on over to his website at www.famtime.com where you’ll find a free monthly activity (and more free ones in the archives) as well as details to subscribe to unlimited activities that you can choose based on the ages of your kids or the values you want to teach. Brilliant!


Here is a portion of this months free activity:
Teaching Goal: God created the “family” as a vehicle to get His children safely
to the home in heaven He has prepared for them.

Materials: A shoe box
1 raw egg
1 zip lock bag
Newspaper
Tape
Markers
Shiny piece of fruit


Read Deuteronomy 6:7. One of the most important reasons God created families was so
that parents would teach their children about His laws—the Bible is filled with God’s law.
God’s laws are designed to get us to heaven safely so we can live with God for all eternity.


Family Time is one way we, the parents, try to teach you God’s laws for living. Can you
think of other ways our family learns about God’s important life lessons? Listen to answers. Going to church. Children’s and/or youth programs. Christian radio. School. Grandparents. Other Christians. The Bible. Prayer.


ACTIVITY: This shoe box represents our family. This raw egg represents a member in
our family. Pick a family member who has a personal relationship with Jesus. Write the name of that family member on the egg. Write the name “Jesus” on a zip lock bag, put the egg in the bag and seal it tightly. The zip lock bag represents Jesus. {Name} is a Christian so they are in Christ. We are going to use strips of newspaper to protect the egg from breaking during the crisis. Tear the newspaper into strips. We are going to write on some of the paper strips ways that our family learns about God.
Pack the box full of newspaper strips. Remember, these strips of newspaper represent having God’s lessons in our lives. Let’s see what happens in a crisis when we know and follow God’s lessons. Drop the box- if packed securely the egg should not break.
Open up the box and point out that the person is in Christ. Point out that the lessons kept the person from breaking. Remember, the box represents our family. The most important thing is that each of us is in Christ represented by the zip lock bag. That means we believe and follow Jesus. Next, as a family, we need to be reading our Bible, listening to our parents, doing Family Time and participating in church so we can be safer and more protected when hard times come.


Memorize: Family is God’s way, To safely guide our day.
