Upcoming RLC Activities and Events
God's Work, Our Hands, Sep 8
September 8th is God’s Work Our Hands Day for churches across the ELCA. This is a day we reach out to the community around us and share God’s love and be His hands.
At RLC, we are going to be collecting water, sport drinks and energy bars/snacks for First Responders in our community. We will also be making thank you cards for the First Responders.

We need your help. We are low in the following items that we give out to those who are in need of food in our community:
• Fresh fruit and vegetables
• Large paper bags
• Canned chicken and tuna
• Ravioli and pasta in a can (both family and individual servings) with pop tops if possible.
• Chicken and beef soup
• Powdered milk
• Peanut butter
• Canned pop top fruit (single size servings)
• Bottled water
Calling all students pre-k through college and calling all who work in schools and pre-schools, it is that time of year again--time for Back to School Blessings!
Please join us on August 11 for a special service at 10am. At that time we will be blessing everyone who is preparing to go back to places of learning--from the students to those who will be working with the students. If you have your back pack, please bring it along for a special blessing. We will also be doing a special blessing for those who are going to college for the first time.
Pot Luck Celebration. The back to School celebration will continue with a pot luck lunch following the 10am service.
The church will provide hot dogs and beverages, we are asking everyone to bring “picnic type of food” to share-- anything from things like chicken, to side dishes, to desserts.
