RCCN Family Picnic

Everyone is invited to join your RCCN family for a picnic next Sunday, July 7 at Rambadt Park following morning Worship.   RCCN will provide beverages and each family is asked to bring their own tableware, a main dish to share, and a dessert (last name A-L) or a salad (last name M-Z).  Along with food, you are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and your favorite “lawn game”.

Kids Hope Partners Needed

RCCN is partnered with G.T. Norman Elementary and Kids Hope USA to make a difference in children’s lives. This is an INCREDIBLE opportunity for us as a church to pour into the lives of those children who struggle socially, academically, and emotionally. Mentors and prayer partners are needed to grow our ministry. Mentors meet with one “kiddo” for one hour per week during the school year. Prayer partners cover mentors and kiddos in prayer during their assigned hour. Prayerfully consider joining our Kids Hope program.

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.
