Why Do You Give Regularly to RLC?
What is your personal story? Once a month, we are inviting a member to share his or her giving story. If you would like to share yours, please contact Pastor Mark.
In Feb, Katherine gave a State of the Church presentation that she called the Cycle of Life. She really dug into our giving numbers and presented a variety of interesting trends. In addition to statistics, she made a strong point that it takes all of us to build and maintain a church. Katherine asked people to make a commitment to give regularly. When we don't meet budget, what suffers is our community outreach, our missions support and our youth programs.
In Jan, Phil Maune talked about his family's giving to RLC over many years. He shared several verses with the congregation. He said we have to start with our purpose as a church: gather, fellowship, worship and share the good news of Jesus. He concluded by saying that God loves a cheerful giver, so giving must come from your heart.
In December, Sarah Caffey shared the reasons she and her family give regularly and how it has blessed their lives. She grew up in the church, but realized that now, as an adult with her own family, she and her husband have a different role to play. She invited those in her her generation to step up and help the church thrive and grow.
Each of us supports RLC in different ways. You may be giving money to the church, even tithing 10%. You may be giving your time to help with RLC programs, activities and outreach. And you may be sharing your talents and expertise...It is all so appreciated.
When money gets tight, there are times when you may choose to give less for awhile. But "not giving" can become a habit, too. Giving is a conscience decision. We hope you will consider your monthly giving to RLC and consider increasing it. Even $5 more a week makes a difference.
Why are we asking members to share their stories? Our giving is down for several reasons: some of our older members have passed away, others have retired and have lower incomes. People move away and find a new church home. There are changes in personal financial situations. Illness can have an impact. It all adds up.
If we all help, we can meet our budget, support the church and open up new ways for God to bless our lives.
Several Giving Options
Don't want to give online? You can also drop your offering off at church Monday-Friday from 9-Noon, mail it in, or set up RLC as a payee on your bank bill payment service.
Thank you for supporting our church, our youth and our community outreach.
Collecting School Supplies for Student Backpacks
It's not too late to donate to the community-wide back to school backpack program. This link gives an updated list of what is still needed for backpacks. It is also a place where members of the community can register their children to receive a backpack.
Current list of what is needed is on our Community page.
Potluck Lunch, Aug 14
Join us for our Potluck Lunch on Sunday, Aug 14 after Worship. After a worship service focused on forgiveness and reconciliation, we will gather in the Fellowship Hall for a potluck where we will talk about how we can more intentionally love each other in the coming year.
Bring your favorite dish to share and join us.
First, we will talk about ways people can be more fully engaged in the ministry of RLC in the coming year. Then, we will talk about how we can better care for those who are unable to come to worship. We will ask about members of the community we haven’t seen for a while and how we can be praying for them. We will also talk about our new digital sign, just approved by your Council.
Preaching and Study Themes for Summer 2022
“Influencing the World
Rather than Being Influenced By It”
This summer, Pastor Mark will continue to focus his sermons and Bible studies on ways we can be transformed by God to become the ones who transform the world rather than being conformed to it.
Wednesday Night Bible Study, 6:30pm
We continue to meet through the summer on Wednesdays nights at 6:30 for food, fellowship, prayer and Bible study.
Come join us at RLC and bring a dish to share if you can.
Please Note: No Bible Study on Aug 3.
