Did you know that our SCRIP has NOT taken a break or even had a slow down during the pandemic? What is SCRIP you ask?

It is a program that allows families to earn money through the purchasing of gift cards/e-cards for youth events, like mission trips, NYG, camp events, etc. Our next National Youth Gathering (NYG) is only 2 years away! This is a great way to earn the money now and have little to no expense later. Just to give you an idea, our 2019 NYG trip cost $1,400 per person to go to Minnesota.

Don’t have any youth, but want to help out? You CAN! You can direct your earned rewards to the church’s love fund, RLS, RLP, RLC Youth, or designate one youth’s family. SCRIP is an easy way to help out RLC, and its' youth!

Youth Groups

IGNITE gets together once or twice per month for on/off campus activities for youth group fellowship throughout the school year. The Warehouse (Room 253) in the Family Life Center is open for Ignite from 6:00-6:25 pm during Wednesday Night Workshop (Confirmation) for fun and friendship. Come join us - it is a great place to hang out!

IMPORTANT: Our health forms/rules of conduct forms are now online. All youth will need to fill out/sign the forms to participate in any IGNITE or RLC Youth event. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you to those who donated to the IGNITE Middle School Food Drive!

We collected 204 lbs. of non-perishable food that we donated to the local food banks. Also, thank you to the volunteers that helped to deliver our donations.

IGNITE Youth Group plans to host another food drive in the Fall. Check the announcements!

Service Projects: Since we are unable to do our normal service projects, I have a few stay at home ones that you can do and when you are finished, I can do a porch pickup and get them delivered.

•   Thank You Notes / Notes of Encouragement (Let me know if you need supplies)
To Volunteers - quilters who have been making face masks
To Seniors - congratulate them on graduation
To Shut ins and elderly members of the church that are alone and needing a little pick me up note

•   Homeless Mat - Plarn Making
Take your plastic grocery bags and turn them into plarn for our homeless mats. Most of my 6th graders did this with me in confirmation. Text/email me, if you need help or there are tons of videos online.  

•   Neighborhood Food Drive Right now the food banks are very low on supplies. Create a neighborhood food drive by making posters, posting on Neighborhood social media (with parents' permission), asking family and friends. You can put a container in your driveway or on your porch for people to safely drop off their donations. Once your bin is full, get ahold of me and I will pick it up to deliver to the local food banks.

I miss you all and can't wait until we can be together!  Stay safe and healthy!
Ms. LeAnn

Breakaway Registration Forms
Whether your youth will be participating in one activity or every activity they can, we need to have a registration form and waivers filled out. Even if your youth will only be attending online events, forms still need to be submitted as pictures are taken and used for publicizing activities. I look forward to an uplifting and faith-filled year of “activities” in all shapes and forms. 

Breakaway Instagram
This is a private group (rlcbreakaway), so please request access.

I am available to you through email ( ), Instagram (@rlcbreakaway), GroupMe, or text/phone (check RCB).

2019 Breakaway


For Service


Due to COVID-19 precautions, 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 rto regularly participate in this area of service.

Any questions or to schedule a brief training, please contact MaryAnn Unger, Co-Director of Children and Family Ministry, at .

Ronald McDonald House Soda Can Tabs
