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 this past weekend. 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!

Thank You,
Ms. Jenny and the NYG Adult Leaders and Youth

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!

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

YouthWorks Raleigh

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.”


High School Servants Team, Kure Beach
July 22-26, 2018

RLC high school youth had a blast serving the beach communities in and around Kure Beach during their week long mission trip. They were helpful servants as they Give a Hand by the Sand working at a variety of direct service agencies in the Wilmington, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach communities.
