Trunk or Treat

Trunk or TreatTrunk-or-Treat is a community celebration that will take place in our parking lot on Friday, October 31, as a safe, fun Halloween alternative.  Folks from our congregation will decorate their cars and park them in a large loop around our parking lot. Each car will have a supply of candy and simple games to play.  At 6:00 PM, the children will come…literally, hundreds will come to fill the parking lot with laughter as they journey from car to car to collect their treats and play games.  There will be food and candy and popcorn and candy and hot chocolate and candy. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the evening.

We’re taking our church picnic to Beechwood Park on Sunday, September 7 and inviting the community to join us.  Lunch begins at noon featuring a hotdog smorgasbord with everything you would want top your “dog” and a nacho bar.  The afternoon includes a cornhole tournament, five inflatables for the kids, games for the family, and music from the RCC praise band.  On Picnic Sunday, we’re bringing the entire congregation by have only one worship service at 10 AM.

Discovery

Wednesdays will be buzzing with activity at RCC as we open the church doors for an evening of Discovery.  You will have the opportunity to discover new friendships as we enjoy a family meal together.  The informal atmosphere will allow you to discover names, which child belongs to who, and the vibrant personality of our congregation.  Most importantly, we’ll discover Biblical insights to live by.

Dinner for the entire family will be served from 5:45 until 6:30 PM.  The cost will be $3 per person or a maximum of $12 per family.

Classes for all ages will begin at 6:45 PM.  For the adults, we will be using “The Resolution” as our study guide.  The book is an unapologetic call for men and women to live courageously for their faith.  Our study is designed challenge you to become the man/woman God created you to be.  It is a pursuit of the ironclad character God wants to develop in each of us.  Because of the content of the book, there will be a class for the men and a separate class for the women.  Books are available at the Welcome Center.

There will be classes and activities for all ages.  Following dinner, Jr/Sr High will meet in the Big House.  Our Elementary Youth will meet in the Worship Center for the opening session, then break up into small groups for discussion and lesson activities.  And, of course, a Nursery will be available for infants and toddlers.

Getting Close!

After the most recent update from our awesome church secretary, the Porters are excited to say that they are getting close to their fund-raising goals!   If you haven’t been keeping up, they were able to purchase their plane tickets after the fund-raising dinner hosted on April 6.  That was a huge answer to prayer right there.  Since then, they have saved, earned through bracelet sales and received gifts bringing them just $1220 away from being fully funded for this mission trip.  Their remaining money is due to Polish Christian Ministries by May 15, which is just over two weeks away, so they still need some help.  If you’d like to be part of what God is doing in Poland, please visit their financial support page to see how you can help them close the gap!

Thank you to all who have already given funds, prayers and encouragement.

Wednesday Night Sr. High Bible Study

life of christ, the_t_nvSr. High: we are going to do a short series on the life of Jesus. We are going to be talking about how Jesus was more than a good man, or a prophet. Rather, Jesus was God Himself, come to earth as a human being to die on the cross for our sins. In light of this truth, we want to encourage you guys to trust Jesus, as both their LORD and the SAVIOR!!
Hope you can make it!!

Porter Poland Progress!

Thank you doesn’t begin to describe the gratitude for the dozens of people that contributed food, helped set up and clean up, but also to the 80+ people who attended and gave so generously.  We shared some slides of trips to Poland and talked about the work God is doing that we are so blessed to be part of.  In the end we raised $2806!  Just $194 short of the amount we still needed for our airfare, and that gap should be filled when I collect money from bracelet orders this week!  What a huge blessing that we can purchase our plan tickets.  I just confirmed that the price hasn’t started going up yet.  Poland… here we come!

We still have $2500 needed for ground transportation, lodging and ministry expenses.  Rumor has it that a couple of RCC Sunday School classes decided to support us this morning, which is not included in this total and should help move us toward that.  Again… thank you!  We’ll need to cover this amount by early May, so your financial support is still needed and appreciated. We’ll make big announcements when we reach the final goal, but you can also follow our progress on our FINANCIAL SUPPORT page.

We can’t begin to express our gratitude.  If you had any part in this … from prayer, to helping out, purchasing a bracelet or a donation of any amount – we thank you.  You are growing the Kingdom of God.
