Community Outreach – “Don’t GO to church, BE the Church!”

“Doan goda cherch, Beda cherch”

What the heck does that mean???  The last thing Jesus told His disciples (and that includes us) was to “go and make disciples” of everyone we meet.  But that’s a process, not a one-time event.  As Pastor Jim Romack has pointed out, “Often times conversation precedes conversion, service precedes salvation, and belonging comes before believing.”

So we first need to befriend these “not-yet-Christians”  before we can ever expect them to be interested in following Jesus.  That’s why we’re committed to building bridges into the lives of as many people in our community as we can, by simply serving them and caring for their most basic needs.  So come on, don’t just “GO to church,” let’s “BE the church”!

Below are some of the current  opportunities God has provided for building bridges into the lives of those who don’t yet know Him.

Northwood Teacher’s Luncheon in June

Building on our long-term relationship with Northwood Junior High across the street, we host an annual luncheon to thank the staff for the investment they make in the children of our community.

Fairwood Apartments

With a commitment to BE the church in our community, RCC familes are building relationships with the families at the Fairwood Apartments through holiday dinners, school supply drives and back to school BBQs, and more! 

Communities in Schools Mentoring Program

Adult Mission Trip— 2017 – Where will we go THIS year???

A group of adults from RCC built temporary shelters for families who lost their homes in the devastating Eastern Washington wildfires last summer during our mission trip.  This year there have been plenty of new natural disasters that have displaced families across the country and around the world.  We look forward to hearing where God will lead us next!
