Care Package Donations: Showing We Care for Our Young Adults
School has been back to session for a couple of months now and we have several of our young adults in college or serving in the armed forces. Please help us to remind our young adults that even when they are away they remain in our thoughts and prayers.
We are looking for donations to send in our “college care packages.” We have around 16 packages 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 sanitizers, 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 your donations and cards/letters. Thank you for your support.
For more information or if you would like to give a name/address of a college student who you would like to receive a care package, please contact Lori B.

Pastor Appreciation Day on Oct 14
While we appreciate Pastor Mark everyday, October 14th is designated as Pastor Appreciation Day. Help us shower Pastor Mark with cards and blessings the weekend of October 13th& 14th. It's a great time to remind him how and his family how much we appreciate them here at RLC.
Please join us October 21 from 11:30am – 1:30pm for a BBQ Dinner. The cost is $9.00 per plate and includes BBQ chicken, pulled pork, sausage and the fixin's.

More Fun at the Fall Fest with a Paint & Pallet Activity
After the BBQ Dinner, we will have a Fall Paint & Pallet put on by our own Emma W. Come do a fun paint project and take your own painting home. No painting experience necessary as Emma will guide you step-by-step.
The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children. Proceeds will go towards our youth programs.
Trick or Treat for Manna Pantry
This is the time of year when we collect donations of food instead of treats, for people who are in need of food. The food we collect goes to Manna Pantry.
On Thursday Oct 11, at 5pm we will be going door to door in the neighborhoods around RLC and we will hand out flyers for Trick or Treat for Manna Pantry.
Then, on Wednesday, Oct 17, at 6:50 pm we will meet at the church and go Trick or Treating for Manna Pantry. If you would like to participate, please bring your flashlight and wagon and join us for an evening of fun as we collect treats for others. You can even wear a costume if you want to!
We will also have a box in the Fellowship hall for any one who would like to bring in non-perishable items to contribute!
