Our mission is connecting: upward, inward and outward.
We are a group of people who share faith in Christ and a love for God. We strive to care for others by following the example of Jesus. We are welcomed by God, just as we are, and we pray that we welcome others in the same way. Come visit us!
We offer three services;
4:30 PM: Traditional/relaxed svc
9:15 AM: Traditional svc
10:30 AM: Sunday school
11:15 AM: Contemporary svc
Pastor Mark is on sabbatical from June-Aug, and we are having a variety of guest pastors this summer. Please see "The Connection," to see who is here next, and then join us for the fun.

This summer, we are working on a backpack project. We are helping youth get the school supplies they need when they go back to school.
The Backpacks are here and now we need help filling them. We have 500 backpacks to fill; imagine the impact we can have in our communities!
-July 21/July 22: Please bring notebooks and pens.
-July 28/ July 29: Please bring folders and highlighters.
You are also welcome to bring other types of school supplies anytime. Don't have time to shop? Write a check and mark it with Backpacks.
We will be handing out the backpacks on August 5th at Chisolm Trail Park.
Children who attended VBS in June, helped with backpack supplies by bringing in their change and purchasing small items. A total of $42.57 was collected to buy more supplies and three packs of crayons, a pack of colored pencils, two packs of glue sticks and two pencils were donated by the kids. Thanks to all!
Backpack Packing Party, Aug 1
Please join us Wed, August 1 at 6:30pm and help to pack 500 Backpacks with school supplies. This is something all ages can help with. Many hands make light work. Please bring a snack to share.

The Welcome Place
RLC is often known as The Welcome Place. Please help us welcome all the guest pastors and speakers that will be visiting our church this summer! We are asking people to sign up on the Hospitality Sheet located in the Fellowship Hall. On the day you signed up, please invite the guest speaker or guest pastor out to dinner that day. Thank you for helping out and helping us make our guests feel at home!
As Pastor Mark learns about times of revival and renewal in church history on his sabbatical, we will be participating in one of the most predictable ingredient of those times of renewal—praying.
As a church, we are committing to 100 days of prayer and walking 100 miles while praying. You can do this on your own, as part of an RLC group, or both. Catherine Dawson is making special t-shirts for our walking prayer time. They are $10. Please see her if you want to order one.
Check out the "Bible Studies" main page (Under Preach & Teach menu) to learn more about this program and find out how you can participate in the 2018 Summer of Prayer.
If you're on Facebook, you can keep up-to-date there. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/100-Miles-Walk-Connecting-Upward-Inward-and-Outward-2098218047080550/posts/?ref=page_internal
You can record your miles on the sheet that's on the bulletin board next to Pastor Mark's office. It will be fun to get a total for the church.

Get Your Photo Taken for the New RLC Directory
We’re putting together a new members and friends directory.
Larch Photography is creating the directory. This opportunity is open to everyone, members and not!
We need your help; please take the time and go to their studio and have your photo taken (free of charge) this summer. You will receive a free directory (one per family! Please call them directly to make an appointment. They are open Tuesday through Saturday. Larch is going on vacation July 1-18.
Larch will set up their photography equipment at RLC August 3, 4, 5 (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) to take photos on site. Look for an appointment sign-up sheet in July. But it will be easier for YOU and your family to have pictures taken at their studio, it will be quicker and you’ll receive their undivided attention!

Fruit Trees for Swaziland
After our very successful spaghetti dinner fundraiser, funds were sent to Corbin, Nathan and Nicole John's son, who is serving in the Peace Corps in Swaziland. Corbin sent us some wonderful photos of the trees being planted. To see all of the photos, go to About Us/Serving Others.
One big push for the summer will be prayer. One thing to be learned from having the Pastor go away for a while is that the one who makes the church successful is not the Pastor, it is God. This summer is a wonderful time to practice pressing more fully into the presence of God in prayer. There will be several ways we will be ramping up the prayer life of RLC this summer. And the prayers are not just meant to be prayed for or by RLC members only. The whole Yukon community is being invited into the journey. Stay tuned for more information.
You are Welcome Here!
We are seniors, young parents, teens, children, married, and single. We are from different places and different religious backgrounds. We come together to worship, to help and support one another and to serve our community.
