Kelly JohnsonJoin us in welcoming our special guest Author/Speaker Kelly Johnson (& Mr. How Do You Do). Kelly firmly believes that (no matter your age) Jesus has exciting plans to fulfill in and through your life.  She’s watched Him fulfill amazing feats as she simply obeyed and followed. She’s worked in ministry at churches, inner-city youth organizations, World Relief and is the Founder of Two by Two Prayer, a prayer movement based in Memphis, TN.  She’s spoken at retreats and ministry events across the country and internationally, yet she never underestimates the incredible value of ministry one-on-one/ neighbor to neighbor. Kelly’s heart to instill truth to the next generation led her to write an exciting new children’s series. She’s convinced that as children (of all ages) encounter Jesus’ love and character—in a relational way—their lives will be forever changed. She’s a catalytic leader, an excellent communicator and has a gift for scattering joy and hope wherever she goes.

RBC Newsletter (09/08/17)

LETTER FROM PASTOR KEVIN:

To the RBC Family and Friends,

Fall is here. Summers in New England are always too short to enjoy everything. I hope you have been able to find time to renew and recharge.

With fall comes changes in our schedules, priorities and lives. This fall I want to challenge every household in our church community to take a step and make sure that the spiritual growth and development of your home is on your schedule and priority list, and we want to help you.

One change we made this summer to help families with their spiritual growth was to change our format during morning worship to include a children’s element, so that the kids had a teaching time during worship that related to the adult message theme. Adults and children all were able to learn from the same passage, with similar themes. The response was encouraging. It bonded us together as a church family, and provided an opportunity for households to discuss and apply the Sunday theme during the week at home- that is our goal, and a need. We want to continue that trend this fall.

On Sunday September 17th , we begin our fall ministry season. Matt and Tara have planned a “Family Fun Day” with lunch, games and activities after morning worship. Our speaker for morning will be Kelly Johnson. She is a national speaker and author. Her, “Mr. How Do You Do?” books are designed to help families learn and apply scripture together. On that morning, for those who are present, we will have available her free 10 week study on “Learning to Pray as a Family.”

I cannot emphasize enough the need for homes today to ensure that being a follower of Jesus- personally and as family, is a needed foundation for family and community life today. We listen to the stories in the news regarding the drug epidemic, and other cultural pressures we face today. A big part of the solution is having a solid personal integrity. A healthy growing relationship with Christ can provide the needed personal compass.

If you have children, take advantage of the “Club 252” program each week during service. Download the free “252 app” that allows you to share at home the videos and material your children get each week and talk about them together. If you have teens, make the Youth Programs with Matt and his team a part of your weekly calendar. Adults? Join a local small group study during the week. Come on Sunday mornings at 9:00am this fall as we start a six week series, “A Reason for God,” looking at real questions, real people have about faith.

I believe we are entering into a new chapter of ministry and opportunity here in the church and community. We will be talking about the next steps God has in store for all of us. Let’s make sure we are prepared in our prayer life, and spiritual lives to be ready to continue to “Reach, Teach and Serve” all around us.

In His Service,

Pastor Kevin

I cannot emphasize enough the need for homes today to ensure that being a follower of Jesus- personally and as family, is a needed foundation for family and community life today. We listen to the stories in the news regarding the drug epidemic, and other cultural pressures we face today. A big part of the solution is having a solid personal integrity. A healthy growing relationship with Christ can provide the needed personal compass.

If you have young children, take advantage of the “Club 252” program each week during service. Download the free “252 app” that allows you to share at home the videos and material your children get each week and talk about them together. If you have teens, make the Youth Programs with Matt and his team a part of your weekly calendar. Adults? Join a local small group study during the week. Come on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am this fall as we start a six week series, “A Reason for God,” looking at real questions, real people have about faith.

I believe we are entering into a new chapter of ministry and opportunity here in the church and community. We will be talking about the next steps God has in store for all of us. Let’s make sure we are prepared in our prayer life, and spiritual lives to be ready to continue to “Reach, Teach and Serve” all around us.

In His Service,

Pastor Kevin
