Looking for Timeout helpers!

Timeout began Sep 26th with over 50 moms! See Angela Hysell or Erin O’Connell if you are able to help care for the kids while the moms are meeting.

Awana Snacks:

Thank you for all the snack donations for Awana! What amazing generosity! We think we have enough goldfish crackers for the year but could still use more strawberry-kiwi flavored Capri Suns. If you are able, please drop them off in the Fellowship Hall. And thank you, again!

Carpet Fund:

We’ve recently replaced carpet in several areas of the church and the sanctuary is next. Some donations have been received and a fund has been opened to supply the balance of monies needed to recarpet the sanctuary. $10,000 is needed to complete this purchase by the end of November, when the matching carpet will be discontinued.

Harvest Party:

Have you ever smashed a pumpkin? This is a night that includes games, food, and ascary hayride!
Who: Jr. and Sr. High, Grades 6th-12th
Location: Carlsons’, 5920 Eilers Road, Montague, MI
When: Wednesday, Oct 18th, 6:00-8:00 pm If you need a ride, the church van will be leaving the church at 5:45 pm

What is Faith Promise?

Based off of the Macedonian church in 2 Corinthians 8-9, Faith Promise giving is the way that we fund our missions ministry at RCC. It is a separate from our general budget and is stewarded by the Missions Committee to provide for our supported missionaries.  We encourage your Faith Promise to be an amount above and beyond your regular giving as the Lord leads. Please be in prayer as you seek God’s direction for what He would have you do over the next twelve months for Faith Promise. Faith Promise cards are available in the narthex and will be collected during our October 15 service.

Faith Promise Update:

Just a reminder that the Faith Promise budget year ends October 31st. The amount promised for the 2016-17 budget year was $68,622. We are currently at $57,013 given. Be sure to mark your gifts “2017 Faith Promise.” Let’s continue to pray for God to provide and be in prayer for next year’s Faith Promise.  

Let us know that you’re here!
