Dear RAC Family,
We praise God for the end of another week and for His faithfulness. We hope everyone is staying warm during these last weeks of winter.
We have new updates and opportunities to tell you about, below!
DISCIPLESHIP AND MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
Sundays, March 5, 12, 19 & 26, 8:15 am, Fireside Chapel
All are welcome to join us at The Praxis happening on Sunday mornings throughout the month! We are a group of apprentices of Jesus seeking to be conformed to His likeness through spiritual formation practices. There will be coffee and muffins to start, too! Lead by Lynnette Missiuna: email@example.com
Rexmen Dinner & Fellowship
Monday, March 6, 6:30 - 8:30 pm, Rexdale Alliance Church
Please join us for our monthly RexMen dinner. All men are welcome to take part in the fun, food and fellowship. We will be hearing a special message from Maurice Gillard who is a home grown product of Rexdale Alliance Church. He attended with his parents for about fifteen years, and participated in the children's and youth programs, eventually serving as a youth leader until he left for Bible College in Regina. After graduating he served in several churches, and he recently retired from Westburne Alliance Church in St. Catharines, ON. He is currently serving in a leadership role at Hockey Outreach, Ontario. It is a great pleasure to welcome him home at the Rexmen meeting. Please register for this event, here.
Women's Morning Bible Study
Weekly, Starts Thursday, March 9, 9:45 am, RAC Youth Centre & Online
We are beginning a new women’s Bible study on "Live No Lies" by John Mark Comer. The cost is $25 for a book. “Live No Lies is a brilliant, deep, scriptural, and will equip you to face the enemy and fight.”―Jennie Allen. Ancient apprentices of Jesus developed a paradigm for this war; they spoke of the three enemies of the soul: the devil, the flesh, and the world. John Mark Comer combines cultural analysis with spiritual formation. He identifies the role lies play in our spiritual deformation and lays out a strategic plan to overcome them. Register: firstname.lastname@example.org.

As usual, Youth happens from 7-9 PM on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month! Students in Grades 6-12 are welcome.

Do you have some gently used special-occasion dresses, accessories, or costume jewelry you won't wear again? Would you like to be a part of helping young women? Then please consider helping with this opportunity! (The dress/accessories giveaway for young women will take place on Saturday, April 1).

ANNOUNCEMENTS, FAMILY NEWS, PRAISE AND PRAYER REQUESTS
Quiz-Meet Prayer Request
Meet Happens Saturday, March 4, Belleville
Please pray for safe travel, for great connections with the wider quizzing community and most importantly, for the lives of the quizzers and leaders to be impacted by what they are learning about God and the early church. As we learn we have been tracking on a map where and how the Word of God spread and how the early church grew. It has been inspiring to see the obedience and courage of the first disciples and believers. (Keep an eye out for our fundraising efforts later in March!)
