Dear RAC Family,
We praise God for the end of another week and for His faithfulness.

It's Harvest Party week and we have new updates and opportunities to tell you about at church! Please read to learn more.


Muffin Mingle on Sunday
We will be having our monthly 'Muffin Mingle' again on October 30! Join us after the service for a casual gathering in the lobby. Coffee and refreshments will be served. (This will also be an opportunity for those who have volunteered to help with Harvest Party set-up to have a few snacks beforehand!) 

Harvest Party on Monday
It's finally here! Our Community Harvest Party is this Monday, Oct 31 from 6-8:30 PM here at RAC! Don't forget to register your children HERE! Thanks to everyone who has generously donated, given candy and signed up to volunteer so far! We still could use help to make it all happen. If you can bless us with nut-free candy, we need 168 more bags of chips (approx 4-5 boxes) and 1,375 more chocolates (approx 18 boxes). We will be receiving candy/chips on Friday from 9am-5pm and on Sunday morning here at church. Alternatively, if you can help by volunteering or contributing to the event expenses (such as inflatable games, snacks and Scientists in School presentation), you will find links and instructions for doing so at See you at the party!

Young Adults Gathering next Saturday
On Sat, Nov 5 there will be a cozy Young Adults gathering offsite at the Benjamin home in Bolton. We will be getting together to talk about the Job series and have an honest discussion about dealing with grief and losses. If you need a ride or can provide one, please contact:
