Outreach – January 2016


THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! 308 “Just Because Cards” were picked up by members of RRC. If all of the them were passed out, we shared the love of Jesus by doing 308 small acts of kindness in the month of December! We would like to encourage you to continue doing these small acts of kindness throughout the year. There will be “Just Because Cards” available on the desk at the back of the sanctuary and on the welcome table of the Lobby. Please pick up as many as you would like and bless the people of our community throughout 2016. In all, RRC blessed 780 people with a “Just Because Card” and either an RRC ink pen or a small act of kindness in 2015!

COMING SOON! SAVE THE DATE! Adult Team Trivia, led by MI Team Trivia, Friday, March 4, 6:15 – 9:00pm in the RRC gym. Registration begins Jan. 31! Start forming your teams of 5-8 today!

Outreach Question of the Month: How much time, in a normal week, do you spend praying for people you know or love who do not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus?

Taking Action:

  • Make a list of family members, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, and neighbors who you care about who are not yet followers of Christ.
  • Put this list in a place where you will see it every day and be reminded to pray for these people.
  • Take a few moments each day to pray for the love of God to pour over these people, and for the Holy Spirit to touch their lives in ways that will open their hearts to God’s love and grace. Ask God to orchestrate opportunities for you to love and serve them.
