VBS

June 23-26, 2019 • 6-8pm

Calling all kids ages 3 years through those who are in (or have just completed) 5th grade! Join us for four nights at ROAR VBS, where kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. At ROAR, kids will participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long.

Graduation Sunday

Sunday, June 2, 2019

Congregation: Join us as we celebrate our high school and college graduates!
 
Parents of High School and College Graduates: It’s that time of year again – the time when open houses and the anticipation of graduation takes hold. In celebration of our graduates, RRCYM likes to do something extra special by creating a booklet containing pictures of your graduate, a letter or prayer request from you to your son or daughter, and open house information. Each graduate will be allotted one page. Please take this opportunity to celebrate your graduate with us as a church!
 
Letters MUST be emailed to Laura Jolliffe by Sunday, May 26.
 
Please indicate in the letter your graduate’s full name, your names, where they are planning to go to school (or their future plans), what they are planning on majoring in, a message/prayer, and open house information (if open house info is something you want published). Don’t worry about designing the page, just send the photos and information to Laura for layout. Thank you!
