RCC is planning another mission trip with Earl and Ruth Anne Haubner on their medical mission boat! In order to start preparing and gathering supplies the team will be collecting items on a monthly cycle. This month they are collecting washcloths and bar soap. Please place items in the Amazon box located in the foyer.

Next Sunday, January 24, we are hosting a Soup & Salad Luncheon to raise funds for the two mission teams we as a congregation are sending out this May. Our homemade soups will be vegetable beef, chicken noodle and cheesy potato – along with salads and desserts. We will also have lunch items for kids. There is no charge, but freewill donations will be accepted.
The first seating for lunch will be immediately following Sunday School for those of you who attend first service. We will offer another seating after second service.

In six months, we have the privilege of sending two mission teams abroad. A team of 15 will be heading to Brazil to assist Earl Haubner and his crew, of Central Brazil Mission on their medical mission boat as it sails up the Amazon River. Leaving about the same time, the Porter family will be returning to Camp Ostróda, Poland to minister to families dealing with the scars from the Holocaust. Although you cannot personally go, you can be part of their mission by being prayer partners and your financial support.

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.
