Sunday School Begins on September 19, 2021



We offer Sunday School for all levels -- Kindergarten through Adult. We invite you to join us each Sunday from 9:00-9:45 AM.

  • Our study of Old Testament stories using the Dwell Flex curriculum will present the Bible as a life-transforming story of God's amazing love for his people and world. We invite children to find their place in that story, and join God's mission to transform the world through Jesus Christ.

    Students will be divided into two levels, grades K-4 and grades 5-8. Heidi Zinkand and Michelle Selvaggio will lead these classes, assisted by Ann Michele Bouwmeester, Pastor Tineke, and Daphne Wang.

  • This year, our high school students will study Complete in Him: A Guide to Understanding and Enjoying the Gospel by Michael P. V. Barrett. This class will be led by Pastor Anthony, Tim Collins, and David Dill.

    "Nothing is more basic to spiritual life and growth than understanding and enjoying the fundamental truths of the gospel of saving grace that center directly and uniquely in Jesus Christ.

    This book is a back-to-basics approach to Christian living. For Christians, everything—both their eternal destiny and their earthly journey—depends on what they think of Christ. The Bible defines from different perspectives what it means to be saved so that we can put it all together to see how great salvation we really have.

    Complete in Him examines essential and inseparable elements of the gospel in order to show that all of salvation relates to and flows from the Savior, Jesus Christ. Christ is everything. Salvation in Christ is complete, and we are complete in Him."

  • Rev. Mitch Herring will lead a study on Romans, beginning September 19.

    “Familiarity with the letter to the Romans is essential to a balanced understanding of the gospel, and therefore with its effect in shaping our lives. It guards against misconceptions that damage our faith, growth, and witness; and as we see the flow and and logic of Paul’s Spirit-inspired discourse, it actually strengthens our faith.

    Romans is Paul’s most comprehensive presentation of the gospel, dictated in a logical order, showing its necessity, core, dynamic, and life. And as with most of his letters, it is didactic (teaching), as well as very pastoral. Therefore as we read and study Romans, we are both built up in faith, and encouraged in spirit!"



  • Jeff Harp will lead a study on psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs this fall, beginning September 26.

    Our goal for each meeting is to:

    Review various texts, both prose and poetry,

    Consider spiritual concepts and images upon which the text calls,

    Sing the text, or listen to it being sung, if it is set to music, and

    Pray together, focusing on what God is saying to us, individually and collectively, through the text.


    "Each one of you is part of the body of Christ, and you were chosen to live together in peace.  So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful. Let the message about Christ completely fill you r lives, while you use all you r wisdom to teach and instruct each other. With thankful hears, sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to God. Whatever you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks to God the Father because of him." Col. 3: 15-17, Contemporary English Version


Connection Groups


1 Corinthians 14:26

What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.


Connection groups are open to all people...RCRC members, non-members, Christians, and non-Christians.


They provide a setting for:

     ... faithful loving of each other as Christ loved us.

     ... understanding what it means to believe and live as followers of Christ.

     ... visitors and new members to immerse themselves in our church life.

     ... people to share joys and struggles with their brothers and sisters in Christ.   

     ... a group to plan service projects that reach out to others in our church or community.

     ... working out the implications and application of the gospel in our lives.
