Mark Your Calendars – Advent Wednesday Soup Suppers and Worship Services in Dec
Join us on December 4, 11, 18 for Soup Supper (6PM) and Advent Worship (7PM). Our theme will be, “Baptism: Let Christ be Born in You this Christmas.”
We will focus on three aspects of baptism:
December 4 – Cleansing: Washing away of sins
December 11 – Relationship: Birth into the Family of God
December 18 – Purpose: Gifted by the Holy Spirit to do the Work of God in the World
Sign up in the Fellowship Hall if you are able to bring soup to share.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Services at 5pm and 7pm
Come worship at RLC on Christmas Eve as we celebrate the gift of Jesus at our candlelight communion services. The focus will be the gift of Jesus born into the world and born into our lives. This will be linked with the messages from the Wednesday advent services--cleansing, forgiveness, becoming sons and daughters of God and being filled with the empowering, gift-giving Holy Spirit.
If you would like to be baptized at one of these services, it would fit the theme well. What a better time to invite your friends and family to celebrate the gift of Jesus in your life.
If you would like to be part of the service by offering special music, please talk with Pastor Mark.

Bless Someone in Prison this Christmas
Deacon Sue Way does prison ministry in Oklahoma and ministers to many who would be blessed by devotional materials. The Oklahoma City area Lutheran churches are buying several copies of the book Hear My Voice: A Prison Prayer Book. The cost is $8.50 per book. Let Pastor Mark know if you would like to sponsor one or more book for a prisoner.
