News & Events for Dec 24-30
Did your child lose a pair of glasses the night of the RCC Christmas Party (December 13th)? We have a pair of child's glasses in the office. Call or stop in if they might be yours.
End of year giving:
If you desire your gifts to be applied to your 2017 giving, checks must be dated and envelopes postmarked no later than December 31st. Checks dropped off at the church office after December 31st cannot be counted toward 2017 giving, even if they are dated December 31st or before.
Food Pantry Need:
Our food pantry ministry needs a volunteer to pick up a load of Old Orchard juice in Sparta on the morning of January 3rd. This person must have an open-box truck or trailer capable of hauling a one-ton box of juice bottles. The box is loaded for you at Old Orchard, and we will have helpers unload the bottles. For more information, please see or call Jeff Wood (contact the office for his phone number).
Haiti Mission Trip Funds Open:
We have opened two funds relating to the mission trip to Haiti in January. One is to help cover the cost of going on the trip and gifts should be marked “Haiti Trip”. The other is to help cover the cost of 1000 Gideon Bibles in the local language. These cost $2 each. Mark these gifts “Haiti Bible”.
