If you are new to RCC, we would love to have you at our next Newcomer Event! Newcomer Events are held every 6 to 8 weeks and are a great way to connect more directly with some of the leadership, ask any questions you may have, and get to know others who are new at RCC. Come join us! Email Kim to sign up!
Come join us as we start the Lenten season together during Ash Wednesday. This is a beautiful service of worship, reflection and repentance as we begin to prepare our hearts over the next few weeks for Easter. We invite you to bring the whole family - childcare will be provided, infants through kindergarten.
For more information on this service, feel free to email our staff.
We often think of membership like belonging to a select club, or like the old American Express commercial where “membership has its privileges.” That is not the way the Bible refers to membership. In fact, in 1 Corinthians Paul doesn’t say the church is like a body. He says the church is a body. The phrase he uses to describe the individual connectedness is we are “members of the body.”
Membership enables us to grow and become spiritually mature in Christ. Not only should we be members of the body, each of us should also be able to express the value of membership.
So, if you are not already a member at RCC and want to learn more about why church membership matters or you are ready to connect to RCC through membership - this class if for you!

Lunch and childcare are provided.

This year we are shaking up our girls’ getaway by staying closer to home for an intown retreat! Chef Rodney Griffin at House of Ambrosia will definitely have us feeling on retreat with a catered lunch that is as much experienced as it is eaten. Seriously… his food is described as “a masterpiece” and “delicious!”
Bring a friend and come enjoy, not only the food, but time with other women at RCC! We will be talking about what it looks like to live in the joy that comes from allowing God to carry our burdens and define who we are, freeing us to love the world around us. Sounds amazing, right?
All women are welcome whether you attend RCC or not! We will kick off the fun Friday night at 7pm and start again, Saturday morning at 9:30am. Are you crafty? We will wrap up Saturday afternoon at 1:30 but will be offering an extended time to Stay and Create with a craft. So, if that’s your jam.. leave some time on your schedule for that!
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience rest and maybe even freedom from what’s weighting you down and holding you back, while building lasting relationships with other women!
Sign-ups have begun for our winter session of Discovery Bible Groups (DBGs)! If you’re looking for a way to meet more of our wonderful RCC women, interested in learning a new way to study the Word, or eager to continue applying the DBG method to a new section of Scripture, DBGs are for you!
We will be studying Philippians together for eight weeks, beginning the week of January 28. Click here to sign up! Your facilitator will be in touch with your study guide and additional information in the coming weeks.
A few FAQs are below. If you have other questions, please reach out to Lauren Currier at email@example.com.
Q: How much homework is there? Do I need to buy a book/workbook?
A: The only book you need for DBG is your Bible (and a journal). We focus directly on the Scripture, and you can devote as much time as you choose to meditating on the passages throughout the week.
Q: I may have to miss a week or two. Can I still sign up? A: Yes! We’d rather have you come a few times than not at all!
Q: Is there childcare?
A: We aren’t able to offer childcare, but nursing infants who are not yet mobile (up until about 6 months or so) are welcome in all of our groups! Aubrey Russi is also happy to include moms and young toddlers in her Wednesday morning group. (But there is no dedicated childcare in this group either, so be prepared to do what you already do best and multitask!)
Q: Can I invite a friend or neighbor who does not attend RCC?
A: Yes! DBGs are a great way to “live on mission” and reach out to other people in your sphere of influence. Just let us know they’re coming!
Men’s Winter DBGs
Sign-ups have begun for our winter session of Discovery Bible Groups (DBGs)! If you’re looking for a way to meet other RCC men, interested in learning a new way to study the Word, or eager to continue applying the DBG method to a new section of Scripture, DBGs are for you!
We hope you'll plan on joining us with your family and friends for our candlelight Christmas Eve service at 5:00pm. There will be classes for kids, Nursery through Pre-K. We look forward to celebrating with you!
If you are interested in helping in kids during this service please contact Cori.
Join us right after service for a cookout to celebrate God’s faithfulness to us as a community. We’ll have hot dogs, chips and some fun activities for the whole family - fire trucks to climb on, magicians – it will be a fun time. So, we encourage all of you to stick around for that on the 11th.
Community fun and FREE PIZZA!
On October 28th, right after church, we will be moving the church offices to the new building. The good news is - it's right across the parking lot! We'll have everything ready to move - we will just need a lot of hands.
RSVP so we know how much pizza to get!
Are you skilled with a paintbrush or good with a power tool? Then this is your day! We need a group of individuals who are skilled at putting things together like furniture for the new kids' classrooms, and shelving.
We also need others to help with painting the back offices.
If you have tools or painting supplies that you are willing to bring, please list those below.
Plenty of hot coffee and donuts!
You are all invited to a very special night! Come and see what God has built as we come together for a short time of worship and guided prayer through our new space! Bring the whole family because as part of our dedication, we will be taking some time as individuals or families to write/draw on the unfinished concrete floors with Sharpies. This is a great opportunity for us to mark our desires in prayers/scriptures/words - whatever best represents your heart - for all the ways we’d like to see God use this new building. Is there someone you’d like to see God meet in this new space? Come and write their name on the concrete along with a prayer! Write prayers for your kids in the very classroom or youth hall that they will be gathering. Write prayers for the community that surrounds the building, the different ministries within our body, or mission teams that will be sent next year and in the years to follow. There is something really powerful about coming together and not only praying over our own desires written out on the floor but walking around and praying over the desires of others that can build a deeper sense of how we belong to each other as the body of Christ, unifying our hearts as a community, even into the years to come so don’t miss this event!
Doors will open at 5 and the dedication will start promptly at 5:30!
Hope to see you there!

Every Summer our middle school and high school students have the opportunity to get away for a few days to develop friendships, play, worship, hear God’s word, and make some fun memories on our annual Summer Retreat.
This year we will be returning to Cloudland Canyon State Park July 19-22, which we visited on our 2016 retreat. This Northern Georgia site is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails and waterfalls. Our lodging area includes a great field for outdoor play, fire pit (for s’mores – what else?), and a group lodge where we’ll enjoy meals together, have sessions of worship, and sleep (maybe a little). There is also an optional outing where students can go on a nearby guided Cave Tour with G3 Adventures. I’m really excited to be going back with you all!
Our theme this year is “Outcasts.” From the time we are little kids, we learn how to put things in boxes and we gravitate toward the boxes that we’re comfortable with. But what about the people who don’t fit into our boxes? It’s easiest to avoid interacting with these people, making them feel like outsiders. God’s family isn’t just for people who fit into our boxes – it’s for everyone!
This trip is open to students who will be starting 6th grade in the fall through graduating High School Seniors (Class of 2018). You can register for the retreat at the link below. Each student will need to submit an updated Medical Release Form.
Registration deadline is June 6th with an Early Bird Discount ($10) for students who register by May 15th!
If you have any questions, please contact our staff!
We hope you’ll join us!

As we have been working through the book of Acts, a desire is rising in our church to be better equipped in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus to those around us. If this is you, join us on Monday evenings, beginning April 9, as we engage in a study developed by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries called “Everyday Questions.” This study is designed to help us hear the questions behind people’s words to better answer what is truly being asked by the world (or even perhaps by us).

RSVP so we know how many books to purchase (and how much childcare you have), and we hope you will join us as we strive to be the church God has called us to be!

As we begin the new year, we want to extend an invitation for those interested in growing as studiers of the Scriptures by engaging in this developmental course.
Bible Study Bootcamp is an 8 week skills-training series introducing basic methods to help understand God’s Word. The interactive sessions are designed for believers who want to learn how to study the Bible for themselves — whether a newbie or someone experienced wanting to review fundamentals. This Equipping Course covers principles such as Observation, Interpretation, and Application and tools that can enhance personal or group Bible studies. Sessions will be focused on “how-to” techniques and practiced in small table groups.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Jay Street.
Starting on Monday nights, beginning January 15th, we want to engage the issue of poverty with gospel wholeness, recognizing it as more than just an economic issue. By utilizing the course entitled “Seeking Shalom,” created by the team who work with Bob Lupton’s ministry, we will be watching short videos through the provided course and discuss the questions given (and hopefully proposed action) as we strive to see where the Spirit leads us in addressing this systemic problem in our world.
This is not simply a course about charity or loving the poor, though that is a part of it. There is so much more to realizing the state of our hearts as we strive to gain God’s heart for His world.
Sign-up on The City. The cost of the course is $10 per person, paid directly to RCC (ask Mike Browne for more details on that or with any other questions), and feel free to check out http://www.luptoncenter.org/ if you would like more information on the course or Focused Community Strategies.
