WORSHIP “ON THE ROAD” AT NEW LIFE TABERNACLE

At last summer’s Wesley Cell campmeeting those who attended had the opportunity to meet Pastor James and Jevena Stokes of New Life Tabernacle (Grand Rapids, MI).   In response to the warm reception and fellowship they encountered here at RCCN, they have invited us to join them for a time of worship and fellowship at their location (1441 Leonard NE) at 6:00pm on Sunday, July 15.  Our own Pastor Chris has been invited to speak while their praise team will be leading the praise and worship time. The church van and “carpool caravan” will leave the church parking lot at 4:00pm. If you have any questions contact Joyce Bittner at 231-349-7014.  

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL

All of our adults and Velocity students are encouraged to join us next Sunday at 9:15 in the Family Room for the beginning of a new DVD study - “Pursuing Holiness”.   You will enjoy this study and the conversations which will follow each Sunday.

SPECIAL GUESTS - AARON AND JILL BOYD

RCCN is excited to host special guests Aaron and Jill Boyd at 10:30am on Sunday, July 22.  The Boyds are from Northern Ireland and traveling exstensively leading worship and sharing their story of God’s work in their lives and advocating for the ministry of World Orphans.  You will not want to miss this special morning (in fact, don’t come alone...invite a friend to join you for this special event!) One last note - you may have not heard of Aaron but you have certainly heard his music - he wrote and performed “God of this City”.

SUMMER BIBLE READING PLAN

If you are joining us in the summer reading of 1 & 2 Samuel, this week’s readings will be 1 Samuel chapters 26 through 30. The text for the coming Sunday’s sermon will be from one of the passages you will read this week.
