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!

It's Not to Early
It may seem a long time away, but we're collecting school supplies.
On Sunday August 5th, RLC will be hosting a special event at Chisholm Trail Park from noon till 4pm. At this event, we will be handing out backpacks stuffed with school supplies to children in need.
We need your help! We are asking everyone to bring in school supplies such as note books, folders, pens pencils crayons etc. to stuff in the back packs. When you bring the supplies in please place them in the large yellow box marked School supplies, in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you!
Feeding the Hungry Who Stop By
We need your help. We are low in the following items that we give out to those who are in need of food in our community:
• Canned chicken
• Ravioli and pasta in a can (both family and individual servings) with pop tops if possible.
• Chicken and beef soup
• Powdered milk
• Peanut butter
• Canned pop top fruit (single size servings)
• Bottled water
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. The program will launch this Sunday (May 20) with us all walking together the first mile after the late service. 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.

BBQ Lunch on May 20

Following the dinner there will be a special blessing and send off for Pr Mark as he begins his sabbatical. Then, we will kick off 100 miles with a special walk .
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!

Manna Pantry Food Drive
Sabbatical Update from Pastor Mark
Believe it or not, Pastor Mark’s sabbatical begins on May 21. His send-off will be on Sunday, May 20 after a joint 10 AM service (where Confirmation will be celebrated) and a congregational meal where Mike Robinson will be doing the meat and we will be pot-lucking the sides. The send-off ceremony will be after the meal, approximately 12:30.
We have a team of people planning for this. They will continue to meet and plan during the summer, to make sure everything goes smoothly for both Pastor Mark & family and for the ministry of RLC while he is gone.
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.
