KCS LEGACY DAY

Letting Our Light Shine.

Legacy is defined as something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past. Usually, people think of things such as property or money, and usually there is the assumption that the one transmitting is dead or gone. So, we tend to see it in the far future, but legacy is now.

It is the result of the impact we have in our community each and every day. So every word you will speak, every encouragement, every praise for good work done count.

You can leave a legacy in so many areas; professional legacy, and yes also a financial and material legacy. All of them are build one day at a time, with a determination to impact the community.

 Founders

Jean and Deborah Sengadecided to live their lives giving. They gave of themselves while helping plant international churches in the USA late 90’s beginning 2000. In two churches in Baltimore, they took every possible chance to be involved in the inner city of Baltimore, bringing their first born child just few weeks old to do the work of the ministry in sometimes challenging settings.

God called them on the mission field in 2007, with no support and very little help. They were able to leave for the DR Congo in 2009 where they have served as church planters and founded KCS in 2013.

They also serve children with challenging backgrounds in Pennsylvania.  

OCTOBER 2021 GOAL

The goal for this October 2021 legacy day is building a Kindergarten section.

This section will help KCS youngest to have their own space filled with learning opportunities and fun.

The project cost 4000 USD. The goal is to raise the money before December when the construction will be done.

SCRIPTURES

Proverbs 13:22 ESV

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.

2 Timothy 2:2 ESV

And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach other also.

They take seriously the commission Jesus gave the church to make disciples (Matt. 28.19-20). They touched lives of people pointing them to Jesus as they walk  along side them, learning together the principle of Christ and working on practicing them. At the school alongside a vision statement that reflect the concept of making disciples, they adopted a moto that encourages student to impact the world in which they live; “Letting Our Light Shine”.

IMPACT

When we look at the concept of impact, what comes to mind usually are the big things, what is impressive to the great community, and we miss people to the great community, and we miss the process that allow people to get there, but most importantly we loose sight of how important small and common thing are.

We would like to encourage you to work on your legacy through daily impacts in the small things as well as in the big things. For example organizing to cleanup your street on a weekly basis, will have a small, possibly insignificant impact in the community until you move out of that community. People will remember you because of the street that used to be clean, they will surely respect you if you set up the community so that someone can pick up what you used to do once you are gone.

WHY OCTOBER 19TH?

We have some special days at the school. We have the ASCI global prayer day, Christmas and Spring programs, and the upper school retreat, but we felt a need for a focus on legacy. The date we choses, is the birthday of Jean Senga, co-founder of the school. Since his life and the life of his wife, Deborah, reflect the concept of legacy, we wanted the day to be one that celebrate them. Deborah’s birthday, August 31 is during the school Break.

GOALS

On legacy day the school will set goals that the KCS family and friends will try to reach. The goals will be designed to impact KCS or a specific community. We encourage our staff, our students and their family to give of their time and finance toward the goals.
