Middle School: Week of April 15, 2019
Apr 16, 2019

Happy Easter week, everyone!

Please take some extra time this week to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with your family. What a great gift we've been blessed with!

On Wednesday the youth group will be going through James chapter 4. We've been doing a Bible Study of each chapter of James the last few weeks in our small groups while practicing different Disciplemaker's Priorities. Your student knows what all these are, be sure to ask them! Ask them about their hashtags this week as well!

And Sunday is Easter, the middle school group will not be meeting so you can celebrate the resurrection together! Enjoy the festivities and we'll see you next week!

High School: Week of April 15, 2019
Apr 16, 2019

Sunday:

I would encourage you to check out this article, Historical Evidence for the Resurrection. It may provide some encouragement to you and a basic apologetic as we look forward to celebrating the resurrection on Easter Sunday! (There is no Sunday School on Easter. Enjoy Easter Service as a family!)

 

Wednesday:

We move on from the danger of self-pity to the danger of busyness. Busyness causes tension in us because it pulls us away from God and people, but also because in many ways it is glorified in our culture. This week in small groups we will focus in on this relevant struggle for many of us.

Preschool & Elementary School: Week of April 15, 2019
Apr 16, 2019

Easter is Coming! 

But, before Easter, we must have Good Friday. How do you help your children/family understand what Jesus did for us on Good Friday & Easter? I encourage you to join us for the Good Friday Experience on April 19th. Families are given the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, read Scripture together to find out what happened, and discuss as a family what Jesus’ sacrifice means for us. Everyone is welcome. 

What can you expect? Let me walk you through… 

After a quick video and talk from Pastor Roger, you’ll visit the Upper Room and have communion like Jesus had the Last Supper with His disciples. From there, you’ll stop and think about what Judas did—feel 30 pieces of silver. Visit the Garden of Gethsemane and pray like Jesus. In Pilate’s judgment hall each one is given the opportunity to cast a vote—Son of God? Yes or No? In the courtyard where Jesus was beaten and mocked, you can see the whip, a crown of thorns and a purple robe. When you leave the courtyard, you’ll climb the steps (or use the ramp) to Golgotha where you’ll pound a nail into Jesus’ cross. He died for us! You’ll then have the opportunity to sit inside Jesus’ tomb and think, before heading back to the Upper Room.

We hope your family will join us! Get your FREE tickets here. 

 

EASTER SERVICES – 9am & 10:30am –April 21st 

So that we can celebrate Easter together, there are no regular children’s programs this coming Sunday at either service. Child care is provided for children from Birth to 3 years of age. 

 

Offering Update—RFKC & Change for Change Contest Winners! 

Our offering this past Sunday came to $57.73, bringing our new total for RFKC to $218.75! That’s amazing!

Bring your CHANGE for CHANGE Contest Winners!

April 14th Winners:

            Preschool – 3 year olds!

            Elementary – 2nd Graders!

 

NOTE: The kids have had so much fun competing with their offerings we’re going to continue our contest through Sunday, May 19th. So, keep on saving and bringing your change to make a change!

 

Wednesday Night Community, April 17th

In our “Diary of a Godly Kid” study we’ll see David trust God as he faces a giant everyone else is afraid of. We’ll talk about “giants” in our lives—can we trust God to help us fight them too? A godly kid trusts God no matter what! 

Now that we’ve crossed the Red Sea, our Preschoolers will continue learning about the life of Moses and talk about the Surprise in the Desert (Exodus 15-16). So fun! 

 

PHASE DAY – May the 4th—Be with us!

Communion. Kids have seen the plate with crackers and the tiny cups of juice passed in church, but what are they for? What do they mean? When do they get to have some? Join us on May 4th for Table Talk as we look at where this ordinance / ceremony came from, why Jesus broke bread and shared drink with His disciples, and why He wants us to continue having communion.

Mission: Hope: Week of April 8, 2019
Apr 09, 2019

We are all motivated in different ways. Some prefer facts and figures while others are moved by the personal stories of others. Regardless of which is true of you, one thing is clear: God calls each of us to care for the needs of waiting children. Proverbs 31:8-9 says, “Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

Ever wonder what it’s like to bring three children into your house.  The movie Instant Family is now available on DVD or streaming.  In this movie a family decides to foster three siblings, including a smart and rebellious teenager named Lizzy.  With the help of dedicated case workers, the group navigates the extremely bumpy road toward becoming a forever family.
