Dear RAC Family,

We praise God for the end of another week and for His faithfulness! What a great week we have had officially beginning the school year and reflecting on what it means to choose joy after last week's service!

We have lots of some new updates and opportunities to tell you about at church.

To make announcements as accessible as possible, we will be publishing the weekly newsletter at from now on! You will find a new button on the home page, 'Events & Weekly News', and a link to 'Blog' under Resources. For your convenience, we will continue emailing you weekly newsletter notifications as well. Please note: if you request to have an announcement made in the newsletter, it will be published online and will be visible to the public.


Opportunity to Use Your Spiritual Gifts
