City BBQ Fundraiser for National Youth Gathering - Thank You!
Thank you so much to our fantastic congregation for your overwhelming support of our youth traveling to the National Youth Gathering this summer at City BBQ. We were able to raise $850!
When City BBQ contacted me, they told me we were the kindest, largest fundraising group at the Cary location and they enjoyed working with us.
What a testament to this amazing congregation serving an awesome Creator!

Superhero Themed Parent’s Night Out, a NYG Fundraiser was awesome! Not sure who had more fun the youth or the kiddos! We really appreciate all of the congregational support.
What an awesome way to end the year with activities! I want to take a minute to thank all of you for your support! Breakaway has had some transitions to say the least. God already had a strong hold of this program and its direction and I am so happy to say that we have only grown stronger in our faith and commitment to making Breakaway a place where all of God’s precious high school kids are safe, accepted, appreciated, and can feel God’s love for them. We continue to play, pray, and build our relationships with each other and Jesus Christ. That is AMAZING! It makes me even more excited for all the things God has still planned for us!

Ronald McDonald Baking Day #1 was a huge success! The kids and adult leaders had a great time baking tons of treats for the Ronald McDonald families. They toured the facility, heard how it began, and learned about other opportunities to serve. The event was such a fun and rewarding experience that another baking day was scheduled.
Ronald McDonald Baking Day #2 was also successful and super fun!
Ronald McDonald House Soda Can Tabs - Ignite along with RLC Preschool will be collecting soda can tabs to donate to the local Ronald McDonald Houses. Collection containers are in the kitchen, church office, preschool office, and the warehouse. *Sponsored by 8th Grade Leadership Team.

Middle School YouthWorks Raleigh Team
June 10-15, 2018
RLC middle school youth enjoyed their time serving our local Raleigh community during their week long YouthWorks mission trip. They partnered with local organizations to meet ongoing needs and served at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program, and elder care facility. Encouraged by their willingness to serve the Lord!
Middle School Mission Trip 2018
Another middle school mission trip has come to an end. We take the experience with us for the rest of our lives. Once again, we served our brothers and sisters throughout Raleigh. We partnered with local ministries such as Raleigh Rehabilitation, Helping Hands, Able to Serve, With Love From Jesus, and more. We began each morning with some quiet time with Jesus, using a devotional book that YouthWorks provides. We were divided into teams for the week. Each team went to specific service sites and took turns with prepping meals and post-meal and building clean up. Showers happened at mid-day when we were done at our service sites. There was plenty of time to have fun, as we spent very little time sleeping. There was a scavenger hunt in downtown Raleigh, an amazing worship opportunity at a Raleigh church, a cook out at one of our service sites, and fun and games in a local park. What one parent said, “…overflowing with stories of new friends, experiences helping others, and a renewed closeness to the Lord. She had a great time.”
