important reminders for TODAY at RIC!

Dear RIC friends

Just a reminder that we have a special service today where Victory, one of the refugees in our congregation, will share his story with us as a part of our sermon on Serving Others. 

We will also take another special offering for the earthquake victims here in Italy. We've already received 300 euros. I'd love for us to reach 1000 euros!

Following the service there will be a brief meeting about children's ministry. We need all children's ministry volunteers and parents of children in the children's ministry to attend.

THIS SUNDAY: We will take another special offering for the victims of the earthquakes in Italy. Last Sunday we received about 300 euros. Let's work toward 1000 euros total!  We will also have a special testimony from a refugee in our congregation as a part of my sermon on Serving Others, part 3 of our church purpose statement.  Don't miss it!

Special collection for earthquake victims in Italy

Dear RIC friends

In light of the terrible tragedy of the earthquakes this week in Italy we will be taking a special offering both tomorrow and Sept. 4 for the victims. We are working with our national and international baptist organizations to find out the best way these funds could be sent and used. We will keep you posted.

God bless!

Pastor Brian

Dear RIC friends,

I hope you're summer is going very well. We've had some exciting worship services over the last few weeks with Taylor and Lydia Whitley who spoke on July 24th on the story of Ruth, Christian Dibert, our ministry intern, who spoke on July 31 on Judgment and Grace out of the book of James and finally a contemplative worship experience in the style of Taize last Sunday, which gave us some space and place for silence in our lives. 

Mark your calendars!

Dear RIC friends

I hope your summer is going well. Below are some important things to add to your calendar and to sign up for:

news from RIC

Dear RIC friends

I've returned along with our youth group and Christian Dibert, our ministry intern, from Euroventure 2016 in Switzerland. It was an incredible experience. Several of the youth who went accepted Christ and others made significant decisions to recommit their lives to Christ. Please keep them in your prayers. This Sunday a few of our students will share about the experience during the service so you don't want to miss it! Many thanks to Khurum and to John who preached over the last two Sundays.

PLEASE NOTE:
