News & Events for May 6-12

Serving/Outreach Opportunity:

On Saturday, May 12th, there will be a cleanup day at Oceana Shores Trailer Park. We won’t actually be doing any cleanup but will be part of an effort to provide dumpsters and a hot dog lunch for the residents. See the insert for details.

Fellowship Time Help Needed:

We still need coffee servers for the coming months! If you can’t do an entire month, share with another couple! It’s a great way to get to know people. Please check the sheet outside the kitchen to see when you can serve. We also need homemade goodies (cookies, quick breads, sweet rolls, etc) to go along with the coffee!

Vacation Bible School:

Are you interested in serving in VBS this year? The dates are July 16-20 (evenings) and volunteers to teach, lead games, serve food, etc. are needed. Contact Pastor Bryan or Gina Sharpe for more information or to volunteer.

Mailboxes/Attendance Cards are updated.

If you’ve been attending for a while, please check because you may have a mailbox and don’t realize it! If you have been attending for a while and don’t have a mailbox, please let the office know. We missed a couple of people and will get that redone in the next couple of weeks.

Pastor James 30th Anniversary:

On June 1st, 1988 Pastor James officially began his job at RCC. And on June 3rd we are going to celebrate 30 years of ministry together! Please make a priority of being here for our morning service with a guest preacher, a special Elders Forum during the Sunday School hour, and a celebration banquet beginning at 5 PM. Spread the word

Elder Candidate:

The elders are pleased to announce that Dave Rakosky has been in the process of becoming an elder at RCC. Our bylaws state that before he is installed a candidate for elder must be presented to the membership so that any concern over his qualifications can be made known to the current elders. We anticipate installing Dave in the position of elder sometime in May. Please prayerfully read 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, and our bylaws (Article 4, Section 1) and contact a current elder with any feedback.

The Hymn of the Month is “O God, Our Help in Ages Past”. For more information on this hymn go to
