RBC Weekly Newsletter (10/20/17)

This is Clergy Appreciation Month and we just wanted to say “Thank You” to Pastor Kevin, Matt Chouinard and the Elders. We know that leading and counseling, teaching and encouraging can be tough work (especially in these days). So we just wanted to say Thank you. We appreciate all you do to shine the light in a dark world and all you do to give hope and encouragement.

(Please remember them in your daily prayers and quiet time)

Prayer for those packing the boxes, but most important are prayers for those who will receive the boxes.  May the recipients of these shoe boxes feel God’s love and allow them to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
