Our mission: 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!

Join us Wednesdays in September for a win-win-win-win.
Win #1: Great food
Win #2: Great fellowship
Win #3: Great support and prayer time
Win #4: Great discussion of practical questions about the Christian faith.
In September and October, we will be focusing on the Sermon on the Mount. We have had some great discussions over the past weeks. Join us for good food, fellowship and learning about faith and life.
If we all help, we can meet our budget, support the church and open up new ways for God to bless our lives.
Collecting Food for Jacob's Cupboard
Jacob’s Cupboard has been going through food quickly, and could use a good restocking. We will be collecting food the next couple of Sundays at RLC to give to them to help them minister to those in need in our community. Please bring in non-perishable food to RLC, if you are able.
Next Steps Meeting
Check back for the next meeting.
Part of the Christian faith is getting out of the church building and engaging in issues of faith in the community. To be more intentional in connecting with people outside of the church building, Pastor Mark is spending Wednesdays from 4-5 pm at The Lokal in Yukon to meet people, pray with them, and pray for the community.
If you are free on Wednesdays at 4:00, stop by for a while.
New Confirmation Classes Begin Sept 24 at 9:15am
We are so excited for Confirmation this year! We are starting the year off, by learning about the Bible.
We are asking everyone to bring their favorite Bible to class. Also, we are going to share our favorite Bible passage or Bible story during our first class on Sept 24. If you get a chance, please check with some of some family members to learn what their favorite Bible passage or Bible story is and why.
Looking forward to seeing you in class!
After we go over the Bible, the Class will be going through the Small Catechism. Martin Luther designed the Small Catechism to help parents teach their children. Thus we are asking a parent or guardian to attend the Confirmation Class with their children. This enables us to share our faith with each other at church and then continue the conversation at home.
Paint and Pallet Social, Sept 10
Our Paint and Pallet Social will be held on Sept 10, right after worship service. This activity is for ALL ages. There will be a light lunch provided.
Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall, by September 6; we need a head count for supplies, etc.
Bell Ringers Needed
Hallelujah Handbells is going to start on Sept 13, 2023. They practice Wednesdays, from 6:15-7:15pm, in the sanctuary. The group is looking for one or two more bell rings. No bell ringing experience is needed. It is beneficial to have a rudimentary understanding of reading music. We will provide training! Please text or contact Byrona if you are interested in joining the group.
Community Worship at Unite OKC, Sept 17, 6-8pm
Unite OKC will be held on Sun, Sept 17, from 6-8pm at Scissortail Park in OKC.
Last year 20 ministries hosted a community worship at Scissortail Park where over 6,000 people of all denominations (and no denomination) joined for prayer and worship.
This year over 80 ministries are sponsoring another worship event, and we hope for well over 6000 people to be in atttendance. One of those sponsors this year is RLC.
Pastor Mark will be on the prayer team for the event. Let’s have a significant group from RLC there to join our neighbors in worship, and (if any are interested) go out for dinner or dessert together afterwards.
Sermon Themes for Sept & Oct
The Sermon on the Mount: Life in the Kingdom of God”
We have been looking at Jesus’ primary teaching message, “The Kingdom of God (or the Kingdom of Heaven)” the last several weeks. In September we are going to start more intentionally exploring’ Jesus most well-known teaching, known as “The Sermon on the Mount”, which just happens to be about what it looks like to live in the Kingdom of God.
As we explore the Sermon on the Mount, we won’t be looking so much at how to get to heaven after we die as we will be looking at how to see, enter into and partner with the Kingdom of God between now and then.
I pray everyone reading this will meet Jesus when they die, but I also pray they will not wait until then to start getting to know him.
