Dear friends, 

I wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who helped with the "Encounters of Hope" weekend. To all who helped with the planning, cleaning, organizing, cooking, and the serving, we could not have done it without out. The event was a success because of you.


I also want to extend an invitation for you to join us this Sunday for worship as we continue with The Story and finish the Book of Exodus. Come enjoy coffee and fellowship at 10:00 am. Worship begins at 10:25 am. I hope to see you there. 


In Christ,

Pastor Jimmy

Worship Night
RSC is joining with our friends at The Beacon Church on March 10th for a worship night in support of Cody Bates’ World Race. Make plans now to join us.

Cody Bates - World Race
As you may have heard, Cody Bates has committed to take part in the World Race 2018. The World Race is an 11 month, 11 country missions journey around the world spreading the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. He'll be doing all kinds of different ministries such as working with youth in orphanages, doing construction, sidewalk ministry, and working with victims of human trafficking. I'd like you to begin praying for Cody now; before he begins his journey. Please click here for updates, for more information, or to support Cody.
