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.

Sr. 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!!

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.

We’re glad you’re coming to celebrate the gift of God’s grace with us! Whether you’re just pass through or looking for a church home, we would like you to fill out the “Connection Card” you’ll find in Sunday’s bulletin and place it in the offering.
We hope you find the information below helpful for your first service with us, but please do not hesitate to contact the church office with any questions you may have. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable.
Welcome Center – Like to know more about RCC and what we have to offer? Stop by the Welcome Center. We have a gift packet for all first-time visitors and someone there to help answer questions.
Sunday School – We have Sunday School Classes for all ages (yes, adults too) beginning at 10:00 AM. Stop by the Welcome Center and let us direct you to the rooms for each member of your family.
Communion – All believers in Jesus are invited to participate in Communion. Please take the emblems as they are passed and partake when you are ready.
Offering – There is no expectation for visitors to give financially to the church. Please do not give out of a sense of obligation, but only if you feel a desire to do so. We would love to have your Connection Card dropped in the plate as it is passed, however, so we know that you were with us this morning.
For The Children
- Nursery (newborn up to 2 years of age) is available during both worship services and Sunday School. It is located at the end of the Children’s Wing… the hall west of the Worship Center.
- PreK & K Class (2-5 year olds) meets during both worship services and Sunday School. These classes are in the Children’s Wing west of the Worship Center.

God continues to call the Porters to service in Poland. They are willing and ready, but they need your support to be able to return this June. Join them for after 2nd service on April 6 for a special dinner, pictures, stories and more information about their family missionary work. A free-will offering will be taken to help cover the cost of airfare.
You can read more about their work, contribute online or buy a handmade bracelet in support of their trip at journeyback.org. Bracelets will also be available at the Welcome Center starting March 30. Post a comment or e-mail Ben and Rachel with any questions!
