Displaying Relay status on LCD

Hey all, I am brand new to Arduinos in general, and I have a question. We designed a circuit that sets our relay off every 3 seconds to drive a small 5V DC motor for 3 seconds. We were given a bit of code to send “Relay activated” and “Relay deactivated” to the serial monitor of the arduino.

I have no experience with the LCD panel that comes with the Uno R3 project kit. I want to display the message from the serial monitor on the LCD, and have no good idea how to accomplish this.

I will attach our code here, so you can have a sense where our i/o sits. We have a single 5v relay, and I’ve seen much more complex operations in the libraries to control many or several channels. I can’t make heads or tails of those for my use here though.

Any thoughts are welcome, as I’m trying to learn

Have you considered doing a little reading on it? Have you been here yet? Lots of great tutorials to get you started.
