As adults at RCC, we encourage each other to grow in our faith and become more Christ-like, to support each other, and to serve in our church and community. Christian fellowship is a precious gift from God.

 

Christian Formation Classes 9:15 a.m.: 

People to Be Loved:  Fellowship Hall lower level
Why Homosexuality is More than an Issue Join us for a respectful, loving, truthful discussion of this timely and controversial subject. We’ll focus on Scripture and where it addresses homosexuality—challenging people to lay aside assumptions and genuinely seek what the Bible actually says
about homosexuality and to evaluate how we treat people behind the label.

Bible Study - Galatians:   Room 109, lower level
Do good deeds make us right with God, or simply faith? And if Christ sets us free from the law, can we live any way we want? Join us as we explore these questions and more in an in-depth look at Paul’s New Testament letter to the Galatians.

God Search: Seven Signs of Jesus in the Gospel of John
Music Room (behind sanctuary) 6:00 - 7:15 p.m.:
Many people are open to God.  Lots of us want to understand God’s love better.  And we all have life experiences that need further understanding.  We want something more, but don’t always know what to do with that desire.

So how will we find God for ourselves?  For centuries people have explored these questions in the story of Jesus and in the words of the Bible.  This study centers on the Story of Jesus in the Gospel of John, and will help you know more who God is and what God is like.

7:30 p.m. Choir Rehearsal in the music room

Small Groups:  Small groups provide a setting to discuss scripture, build relationships, and enjoy our shared faith journey.  We encourage everyone to find a small group that fits their interests and needs.  Some groups are short lived – focused on a certain topic. Other groups meet regularly based on an agreed meeting time and content.  Contact the church office to learn more about small groups that you can join.
