If you are thinking about membership with Rockford Reformed Church, or if you just want to learn more about us, this class is for you! Attending class in no way obligates you to join.

Childcare available if needed. Registration required. Please contact the office (connect@rockfordrc.org, 616-866-2308) if you would like to participate.


Table Talks

Beginning June 10, 2018, Pastor Tim will meet with one care group at a time after the worship service to share a bit of what we are up to during the transition and for you to ask questions. If you are away on the day assigned to your care group, you are welcome to join us on another day. Schedule will be posted as we finalize the dates. Meet in the Fireside Room (253).

Baby Bottle Blessings

May 13 – June 17, 2018

RRC is once again partnering with Alpha Family Center of Cedar Springs to raise money for their organization. Alpha Family Center is a Christ-centered ministry that serves women and families who face an unwanted, unplanned, or at-risk pregnancy. By educating women who face a crisis pregnancy, women and their families are able to make informed decisions.
 
To participate in the Baby Bottle Blessings fundraiser, please pray for the center, take home an empty baby bottle, and fill it with your spare change, dollar bills, or checks (made out to Alpha Family Center). Bottles will be available at RRC on Mother’s Day, May 13. Please return them by Father’s Day, June 17. We will return them to Alpha Family Center for you. This is a great opportunity to teach our children about sharing God’s love while making a difference in the community!

You don’t need to do any planning, just show up! Adults, high school students, and middle school students accompanied by an adult can volunteer.

Kids Hope Fundraiser

Monday, April 30, 2018 • 6:30-8:00pm

Fireside Room
 
At the end of the year party we would love to present each student with a new book for their summer reading. We could also use some new books to stock the Kids Hope room. By purchasing books for the kids you know (or donating a book on my wishlist), you are supporting and providing books for some children in a program that loves and supports children in the Rockford Community.
 
Think birthday parties, travel activities, educational materials, Christmas and birthday presents. This party will also be a good opportunity for food and fellowship. Are you unfamiliar with Kids Hope USA? Please join us and learn more about it. Please Come and Bring Your Friends!!!
 
If you can’t make it to the party, you can order online here.
