Welcome

Welcome to the Reed City Church of the Nazarene.  Thanks for choosing to worship with us today.  May God fill you with His presence as you seek Him this morning.

We would like to know you were here today - please connect with us:


PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our desire to fully submit to God’s will.
Special focus:
 That those who do not know God personally would open up their lives to Him.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Ron Fasbender Family, Richard & Lydia Ostrander, Darwin & Sonja Reed, Mark & Kim Livingston, Jerry McInnis Family, and Delcine Copella.

* Our church family is very important to us and so we choose to remember a few families/individuals each week in prayer.

Please share with us God’s activity in your life and how our Pastoral staff can pray for you. 


ANNOUNCEMENTs

Guatemala Partnership Month

A Church Partnership.

June is Guatemala Partnership month. Since June of 2015, RCCN has partnered with a sister congregation in Guatemala City through the help of World Orphans. Our monthly support of $600 funds an important outreach ministry for Pastor Eli Bello & his wife Nancy’s congregation to make regular home visits and distribute food baskets. We provide the funding and Pastor Eli’s church provides the people. It is a wonderful partnership that makes a difference as they build relationships, provide food, and share the grace of God.

Please prayerfully consider partnering with us. It is our annual goal to have 24 partners who commit to giving $300 in this next year. If you would like to make this (or any size commitment) to our Guatemala Partnership please mark your Connect Card or click on the link below.

A Ministry of Relationship.

Another important part of our partnership is building relationships between members of our congregation and theirs. RCCN has a team of 11 going this summer from August 1-6. The team will deepen our relationship with Pastor Eli and his congregation through worship and service to the families within and around our sister church.

The team will serve a fundraiser luncheon following the morning Worship service on Sunday, June 30. You are invited to stay and eat, and support the team members with your donation.
