Sunday morning adult Christian education classes for the first block of the Fall season will run from September 16-October 28, 9:15-10:15 am. The next block of classes will begin on Sunday, November 4.
RLC values Christian education, for adults and children, and considers it to be an essential part of a healthy equipping ministry. We offer a Sunday School education hour for adults and children that meets at 9:15-10:15 am, September through May.
Without Boundaries is a ministry for families who have children with special needs. A safe environment for children that allows them to learn and know God's love on a weekly basis.
All children have the opportunity to listen to a Bible story and participate with the lesson, sing and play a musical instrument, create a craft, learn the Lord's Prayer, and have one on one time with a buddy (trained helper). Each class has a teacher and several buddies who model Christ's love and provide hands-on help as needed.
While children participate, the families can worship together at 10:30 or 10:45 services. We meet each Sunday morning from 10:30 am-12:00 pm. Please contact Lea Webb for more information, an assessment form for your child, or volunteer opportunities.
Confirmation is designed for families of 5th-8th grade students. Young people at this stage learn, develop, and take ownership the professions of their faith. It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation promotes the lifestyle of following Jesus.

Description: God gives His Word to instruct, guide, and bless our lives. The Scripture lessons in worship offer a menu every Sunday to build up the people of God in faith and hope. We will study the lessons for the following Sunday, and as we do, we expect that this Word will enrich and edify our community prayer, faith, and servant life in Christ.
We will study the coming Sunday Scripture lessons, confident that the Spirit will be:
- Enhancing and enriching our Sunday worship life!
- Letting God's Word edify daily and Sunday faith life!
- Connecting the themes of the four lessons into a tapestry!
- Listening to the Spirit of God at work in Word and one another!
- Building our community life together!

The LifeLight format includes a study guide with Bible reading and questions for each lesson, an enrichment magazine with articles about history and current applications, and informal group discussion at the Wednesday morning sessions.
Selected Psalms will be the focus of the fall LifeLight Bible Study. Participants will read, pray, and learn about the various types of psalms through home study and informal group discussion. New faces are always welcome!

Wednesday Evening (Adult Class)
The Four Acts of Prayer
Leader: Mindy Stephani
Dates: September 12-December 19
Time: 6:30-7:45 pm
Place: Room 151
Description: In keeping with the PRAYER theme that the church will focus upon this coming year, our WNW program will also turn our attention to the matter of Prayer. Our program—The Four Acts of Prayer—will use material from Dr. Walter Wangerin, Jr., an award-winning author of 34 books including the best-selling The Book of God. He is writer-in-residence at Valpariso University.
In The Four Acts of Prayer, Wangerin uses stories to explore these vital elements of the complete circle of praying.
We speak, God listens, God speaks, We listen.
Wangerin uses stories in the accompanying DVD clips to explore these vital elements of the complete circle of praying. We will look at excerpts from the Bible, both Old and New Testaments to show us how Biblical characters related to and communicated with God Himself. Wangerin shows us that these seemingly four simple acts are to be practiced and developed with diligence. As a result, they will bring us into a complete and close communication with God that supports us in our daily living. The DVD clips run about 15 minutes so there will be plenty of time for Scriptural exploration, discussion and Q & A.
There is no cost for this class and no homework. Our class will run from 6:30-7:45 pm after WNW dinner which starts at 5:15 pm. Come and dine with us at dinner, if you can, and then join us in class in room 151.
We will explore new ways to make our prayer life more vibrant and meaningful!
