Winter Giving Tree

The Giving Tree will be in the foyer December 8 and remain for the remainder of the month.  Gloves, hats and scarves (adult or children) will be collected to donate to the Parke County Food Pantry.  If you missed the Giving Tree in July and would like to donate Christmas gifts for the children of local families served at the Food Pantry, (unwrapped) toys or clothing items for any age  will be accepted December 9 and 16.


Children’s Wing

Sunday, December 9, immediately following church service, there will be a mandatory nursery meeting for all volunteers to discuss the new changes happening in the children’s wing, as well as, future goals and any ideas you may have. There are still a few spots available for 2019! If you are on the fence about working in the children’s wing or think this may be a passion for you, please contact Jenn Engle, as soon as possible.


Women of Service

The Women of Service will meet December 8, at 9:00 AM for breakfast, with the  business meeting to follow. If you are new to RCC or wanting to become more involved this is a great way to begin.  The December project is collecting small fleece blankets to donate to ISP.
