Do you want to play a role in the Christmas story?
We will need people of all ages. to help act out the Christmas Story. If you want to help with this, please contact Kim Ramsey, Byrona Maule or Lori B. Thank you.
Our Philosophy: Youth are not just the future of the church; they are an important part of the church today. Youth are active in all aspects of life at RLC: from worship, to leadership and volunteering, to living out their faith at home and school with family and friends. We have specific ministries for youth at different ages, but we also regularly have opportunities for cross-generational learning and serving. We believe youth have much to share about who God is and what it looks like to follow Christ.
Youth Christmas Program
This year we are changing things up a bit. We will be doing the Youth Christmas Program as part of the Children’s Message on December 18th. We hope to have lots of our youth participating in this fun program!

It has been postponed until 2024. Watch for news about new location.
