The Language of Blessing

Language of BlessingDo you find yourself looking at others and wishing you could be more like them?  Or, do you look at others and think “they’re weird or different or not-like-me”?  Or, do you spend more time trying to make your kids like you or who you would like to be rather than trying to figure out who it is God has made them to be?  All 3 of these scenarios have the same problem, you do not recognize the unique person God has made you to be.  Therefore, making it difficult to recognize that God has made every person you encounter equally unique and special.  For 6 weeks this fall, an RCC Community Group is going to take time to do just that.  We are going to explore deeper our own personality, gifts and talents.  Which in turn will begin to help us recognize these things in other people.  Then, we are going to look at ways we can speak blessing into our families, co-workers and others we encounter daily.

Here are the details:

Who? Anyone who has people in their lives.

What? The Language of Blessing

When? Fridays, October 18-November 22, from 6:30-8PM

Where? RCC

Why? As Christians, we want to better understand how to be a blessing to the people God has brought into our lives.

The Art of Marriage – January 4-5, 2013

Have you always wanted to attend A Weekend to Remember but have never been able to find the time or money to pull away for an entire weekend?  RCC is thrilled to offer an alternative for couples who want to make an investment in their marriage: The Art of Marriage.  This one-and-a-half day video event is built on the same biblical content as Weekend to Remember but is hosted by a local church.  With limiting the cost to materials and food, the registration fee is only $50/couple.  Because we highly value this “retreat” for couples, we are unable to offer child care at RCC.  So, get creative and plan that long overdue sleepover for your kids with grandparents or other relatives or close family friends.  Or, contact Amy Snyder for a list of RCC teens who are available for babysitting.

Here is what you will experience during The Art of Marriage, on Friday and Saturday, January 4 and 5th:

Friday evening, couples will gather from 7:00 to 9:30 pm to begin a weekend of marriage renewal.  Popcorn and drinks will be served as we experience “Love Happens” and “Love Fades” via a video presentation which includes: teaching by renowned marriage experts, engaging stories, real-life testimonies, man-on-the-street interviews and humorous vignettes.  Couples will go home with a project to complete that evening.  Saturday morning at 9:00 am, couples will once again gather at RCC to experience “Love Dances”, “Love Interrupted”, “Love Sizzles” and “Love Always”.  The video presentations will be broken up by breaks for snacks and lunch and times for couples to meet one-on-one to work through projects related to The Art of Marriage material.  The day will be wrapped up by 4:00 pm on Saturday.

KidzRock Virtue of the Month – November 2011

 

The season of Thanksgiving is upon us.
In that same spirit, GRATITUDE is our virtue for the month of November.

We will kick off the month of Gratitude with our first Xtreme Kidz: Live! of the month on Saturday, November 5 at 4PM.

Be sure to watch November’s Virtue Video here.  This will help you begin to think about what your child is learning in Kidz Rock and at Xtreme Kidz: Live! this month, so the church and the home can work on the same thing at the same time.

You can pick up November’s pack of God Time Cards at Xtreme Kidz: Live! on Saturday or at Kidz Rock on Sunday morning.  Be sure to add them to your Family Yearbook and keep it where your family is most likely to spend time together: the breakfast or dinner table, on the coffee table next to the couch or next to the bed.

November’s Widget is a Thank You/Invitation for the person or family of your child’s choosing.  They will give this card to someone special in their life to say thank you for being special and to invite them to a Thanksgiving potluck following Xtreme Kidz: Live! on Saturday, November 19.  Sign up at RCC to bring food and participate in this Potluck of Gratitude.

A Nor’Easter Trunk-or-Treat

On Saturday, October 29, 2011, RCC held its first-ever Trunk-or-Treat following Xtreme Kidz: Live! Despite the weather, we had a great turn-out. View more photos on our KidzRock blog.

A little snow never stopped New Englander's from Trunk or Treating! Now, the down trees and power lines are another story.
