Nursery for Infants and Toddlers
The Nursery will be available for the 9:30 am worship service on Sunday mornings, starting September 12, 2021. It is located near the Preschool wing.
Worshipping with Small Children
Children are welcome in all of our worship services! God loves the little children, and so do we!
Rainbow Bags and books are back! Please feel free to have your child grab a bag on the way into church and then place it into the tub in the Narthex if you worship in the Sanctuary, or the hallway by the Family Life Center.
Our focus is to connect the theme and message of the day in a simpler way that children can understand and relate to on their level.
We are inviting children to come forward for Children's Messages. If you are not comfortable doing so, I encourage you to sit near the front so the kids can
feel more included.

The Children's Church fall schedule will be announced shortly.
Normally, it is held during the 11:00 am Praise service in the Family Life Center. Children, ages 3-6, would be dismissed before the sermon for a 20 minute Bible lesson with corresponding crafts and songs. This is a time to help grow their faith.

Virtual Seder Meal
Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 6:00 pm
5th grade students and families celebrated the Seder Meal virtually this year. The shopping list and a brief video from Chef Kim below was used to prepare for the meal in their homes.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)
Thank you to all who participated in GOD'S CREATION! AT HOME FAMILY VBS this summer.
Resources provided to families included lesson ideas, snack suggestions, songs, and crafts.
A great way for families to explore God's creation and to find every day ways at home to see how His creation is part of our every day lives.
Acolytes are not needed at this time.
Being an acolyte allows our youth, grades 5-8, to be actively involved in serving at RLC. You are able to sign up online for dates and worship times that work for your family.
Our practice is for 5th-8th grade students to serve as acolytes and be actively engaged during the service. Thus, allowing them to see the importance of worship. We hope you encourage and provide the opportunity for your child to regularly participate in this area of service.
Any questions or to schedule a brief training, please contact MaryAnn Unger, Director of Children and Family Ministry, at .
Fellowship for moms
September 3 is the first date, then the first and third Fridays of every month from 9:30-11:30 am.
Mark your calendar to remember to join in this amazing group of moms for Bible studies, as well as social events. It is a great support system and a wonderful way to meet new women friends. Childcare is available for the regular meetings for a nominal cost.
All moms are welcome, most have babies through middle school kids. Feel free to invite a friend!
