Parent’s Tip: If you are reading through any scripture consider sharing what you are learning with your child. It is a powerful thing for our youth to see the adults of the congregation learning and growing like they are.

What We’re Studying: God’s Word is powerful. It has the power to transform our hearts and our lives. RRCYM is currently doing a study called “Alive” in which we are learning about just how powerful, valuable, and vital the Bible is in our relationship with God. The 3-week series digs in to these 3 main points:  1) Give God’s Word a chance to change you; 2) Find a way to feed yourself spiritually; 3) When you memorize, it opens your eyes.
