Faith Promise for AVL Ministry

We are currently raising money to update our Audio, Visual, and Lighting in our sanctuary. If you would like to help us reach future generations for Jesus by updating our technology, please fill out an online Faith Promise Card. If you’d like to give a special gift, you can do so here and designate your gift to the building fund.

RCC Giving Tree:

‘Tis the Season….. the RCC Giving Tree is once again in the foyer and decked out in red tags! Each tag is numbered and labeled with a child’s age, gender and a Christmas wish. You can help bless a child this Christmas by choosing a tag (be sure and sign it out on the Sign-up Sheet) and shop for  the requested item.

Return the gift, unwrapped with the tag attached no later than December 15.  It is that simple!  Your gift will bring joy to a child in our community this Christmas season.

“Christmas in July”

Picture1   The Women of Service have set up a red, white and blue decorated tree to replace the “Teen Giving Tree” usually set up at Christmas. They will collect toys, games and gifts, for all ages of children served through the Parke County Community Food Pantry. The items will be stored until the Food Pantry sets up their Christmas Shop. The red/white/blue tags are gift suggestions for people to take and purchase. The gifts do not need to be wrapped and can be returned any time during the month.


The 2017 Teen Giving Tree is up in the foyer, gift tags are on the tree to take. Return the unwrapped item, $10-$15 range, and place in the totes.  These gifts go to children of the families who access the Parke County Food Pantry. They are our neighbors and friends, let’s help them have Merry Christmas this year.


Teen Giving Tree

The tree is decorated with tags containing a gift suggestion for a teenage boy or girl whose family is assisted by the Parke County Community Food Pantry. Select a tag, purchase the gift item ($10.00 price range) and return, unwrapped, to one of the totes at the foot of the tree. The gifts will be taken to the Parke County Community Food Pantry and donated to their Christmas Room where families can select Christmas gifts for their children. * The Food Pantry also accepts gently used or “like new” toys, books and gift items for this purpose

Women of Service

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.
