RBC Weekly Newsletter (7/12/19)


7/14/19: Guest Speaker Paul Bentley and Baptisms

BAPTISM: Baptism is a public declaration that you are a follower of Christ. Join us as we celebrate with Sarah Burgess and Cory Walker during a celebration of baptism Sunday.

OUTDOOR CLUB is pleased to announce the date of the ANNUAL CANOE and KAYAK TRIP.  Please join us on Saturday July 13th for a family friendly adventure on the Contoocook River just outside Concord, NH.  The group will meet at 9:15 am at the Church.  Canoe and Kayak rentals are available from the launch site. There is a $3.00 launch fee per boat. Families can depart the beach area any time for the easy paddle downstream to the launch site.  Rentals are returned no later than 5pm.  Please sign up at the Welcome Center.  See you on the water!

PARKING LOT UPDATE: We have all been watching the progress on our new parking area. It is exciting to imagine the benefits it will provide to us in our service to the community. Construction has been moving along throughout the spring by a small crew. They will be moving to a new job temporarily, but will be back to finish in a few weeks. Our contracted company has been diligent and excellent. So stay tuned for new developments in the weeks ahead- and be praying how God would have us use this part of our growing facility to honor Him.
