the news from Rome International Church

Dear RIC family

This past Sunday was a wonderful celebration of the life of the church. We were able to honor those in our community who are leaving as well as baptize three people: Rockson, Nahom and Shabaz. Check out the pictures on our church Facebook. 

UPDATE ON THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEW PASTORS: 

ONE OF OUR NEW PASTORS, LOREN HOLLAND, AND HIS FAMILY ARE SET TO ARRIVE ON JULY 21! LORD WILLING! We were able to help them locate a house to rent in La Giustiniana. MAKE SURE TO JOIN THEM AT RIC FOR THEIR FIRST SUNDAY ON JULY 23!

THE OTHER NEW PASTOR, CHRIS HENDRIX AND HIS FAMILY ARE SET TO ARRIVE ON AUGUST 25TH, LORD WILLING!

Pray for the visa process and the move for both families! We appreciate so much their sacrifice and commitment to help lead the ministry that RIC has started.

If you have items to donate for the new pastoral families, we have started an on-line spreadsheet to manage them. List your items here:

TO COORDINATE DROPPING OFF THESE ITEMS: Please contact Brett and Jana at ric.ministryintern@gmail.com if before July 1st or else me after that. 

Personally, my family and I want to thank the congregation for the wonderful gift of the beautiful tablecloth and all the kind words you shared with us on Sunday. Our last Sunday with RIC will be July 16 and we fly out on July 22. 

Blessings

Pastor Brian
