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 are currently meeting online. When we resume services on June 7, we will offer three services;
4:30 PM: Traditional/relaxed svc
9:15 AM: Traditional svc
11:15 AM: Contemporary svc
Vigil from Ascension to Pentecost
If you're feeling isolated during this time of quarantine, please join one of our online services or be a part of prayer time.

MONTHLY ACTIVITIES IN APRIL
All workshop services and RLC activities are cancelled to protect our congregation, visitors and staff from the Coronavirus.
Prayers for Pastor Mark
Pastor had his gallbladder out on Tuesday, May 5. Thanks for your prayers during this time. He is taking several days off after the surgery for recovery..
Quilters Have a New Project
Our quilters cannot get together to make quilts during the Covid 19 stay-in-place restrictions so several members have started making much-needed masks. We will add more pictures as we get them, so let us know if you are helping to sew masks for medical personnel. If you don't sew but have material or elastic to donate, please let Sharon West know.
Also, Joann Fabrics is handing out free pre-cut mask kits to sew and return to them. They will deliver to medical facilities.
Our Vision for the Future: a New Church
RLC is going places. We're building a new church. We invite you to add a little extra to your normal giving and designate it for the new church. And please volunteer to help on a committee as we move forward with our vision for the future! Learn more: http://www.rlcok.org/vision-for-the-future.html
75-80 White Corelle Coffee Cups Looking for a New Home: $30 for All!
RLC has had these classic dinner coffee cups and they haven't been used for "eons," according to Jeana Ross. It's time for them to go, so this valuable space in our kitchen cabinets can be used for other kitchen supplies. Jean is thinking that another church or organization may have use for them. We are asking for a $30 donation for the whole lot. Please contact Jean Ross if you are interested.
I want to invite you to join me in prayer from Ascension to Pentecost (May 21-31). The disciples spent 10 days in prayer from Jesus' ascension until the arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. We want to pray for a fresh encounter with the Holy Spirit as well. You can participate in two ways.
1. Use the attached reading and prayer guide for those days.
2. Pray at the time (either AM or PM) each day that corresponds to your birthday (I will pray at 5:19). Pray for these things:
-Come Holy Spirit and:
*Bring healing to my past
*Draw me into a greater experience of your presence and activity in the present
*Guide me into the future God has for me
Then finish by saying - "Come, Holy Spirit. I give you all of me. My past, my present and my future."
