Youth Are Houston Bound in 2018
Please help our youth get to the ELCA Youth Gathering.
We are asking you to put your spare change in the gas can located in the Narthex. We will use the money to help with our group's travel expenses. Thank You!
Mission of the Month (MOM)
October: RLC Pumpkin Patch & Manna Pantry Trick or Treat
Each month, we're adopting one community outreach project and encouraging everyone to participate in some way. There will be big and small projects and you're encouraged to come up with ideas, too.
Some months we will focus on programs we do every year such as Manna Pantry Trick or Treat, the Pumpkin Patch, the Angel Tree, etc. But we will also come up with new programs that we think our members will want to participate in. Fore more info, contact Peter Cox, our VP of Missions and Outreach.
We're Collecting for Care Packages
School has been back in session for a couple of months now, and we have many of our young adults in college or serving in the armed forces. Please help us remind them that even while they are away they remain in our thoughts and prayers.
We are looking for donations to send in our “college care packages.” We have about 16 packages that we will be sending out… We are asking for donations of items to go into the boxes or for money to help buy the items and mail the boxes. Some ideas for donations are travel size tissues, hand sanitizer, snacks, drink mixes, pencils, pens, highlighters, along with hand written notes of encouragement and prayers. There will be a box in the Fellowship Hall for donations and letters. Thank you for your support.
For more info or if you have a name/address of a college student that you would like to receive a care package, please contact Lori B.
Share Your Faith at Sunday School
We are asking people to share their favorite Bible story or Bible verse with our inter-generational Sunday School Class. The class will be meeting at 10:30AM in the double glass class room., beginning September 17th. Please sign up for the date you can share your story in the Fellowship Hall
Pumpkins are scheduled to arrive on Oct 15. Please mark your calendars to help us unload and stack pumpkins. We will need lots of help and it's fun for all ages. Sign up in the Fellowship Hall. In addition, we will need help working at the Pumpkin Patch, so please sign up for that, too.
