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

Sabbatical Implementation Task Force
When Pastor Mark takes time away for a Sabbatical this coming summer, we want that time away to bless him and his family, but also to bless us as a congregation as we learn to be the ministers and not just have someone minister to us. We will be planning worship and worship coverage for the summer, pastoral care for the summer, and ways to connect with some of the things Pastor Mark will be learning. If you would like to be part of this team, come to the meeting.
Sanctuary Update is Complete
Super Souper Bowl Results
A big thank you to all who participated in Souper Bowl Sunday. Our Eagle’s team collected 105 non-perishable food items and our Patriot’s team collected 38 non-perishable food items. We are donating these items to the Manna Pantry. Our Eagle’s collected $142.00 and the Patriot’s collected 124.05 for the ELCA World Hunger. We also collected $10 for the Manna Pantry. Yay TEAM!
Happy 6th Anniversary to Pastor Mark

An RLC Eagle Scout Created a New Mini Food Pantry for RLC
Feeding the Hungry Who Stop By
We have people stopping by RLC looking for food, gas money, etc. Our larder is empty and we could use help refilling it. Please consider donating small non-perishable items such as bottle water, snacks, food that can be eaten without heating or cooking, etc. Just place your items in the large yellow box in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you.
And now we have a new way to help the hungry with our mini food pantry, located at RLC.
Buy BBQ and Help Our Youth
We are having a sale of some great BBQ to help our youth go to the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston this summer. If you are interested in buying some, please contact Lori B.

Members of the RLC Quilting Ministry have gifted the church with a beautiful new quilted banner in honor of the 500th anniversary of the reformation of the church. The red and white banner is a striking tribute to the Reformation.
