RCC’s stated mission is “meeting people where they are and helping them follow Jesus.” We try to do that in our everyday lives, especially by praying for one. It’s a simple strategy that puts us in alignment with how God might want to use us each day to reach out and love others. Maybe, though, you’ve been wanting to do more… If so, here are two opportunities you may want to pursue!
workcampNE Mission Trip
July 9-15, 2017
workcampNE is a week-long service-based mission trip designed for high school students, college students, and adults to connect with others in order to reach out to those in need. Students and adults from several churches come together for a time of serving, worship, and connection. Projects include painting, roofing, deck building, cleaning, etc. I’ll be leading this year’s trip to Springfield, VT, so feel free to contact me with any questions!

Kenya Mission Trip
July 18 – August 2, 2017
RCC is heading back to Nairobi, Kenya, to serve another two weeks in the Mathare Valley slums with Missions of Hope! By simply coming and opening yourself up to service during this week, you will experience God working in tremendous ways! The first informational meeting is Sunday October, 30, immediately following the 11:30 worship gathering at RCC. Feel free to contact Steven and Gail Martin, trip leaders, with any questions (their contact info is in the RCC mobile app on the event page for this trip)!

BONUS: Serve at SST on October 29!
Mission trips are great, and we will always do them here at RCC, but it’s also important for us to serve those right in our backyard. Serving Salem Together is all about that! This year, our Grow Groups are heading out together on Saturday, October 29, to serve others by raking leaves, cleaning gutters, and doing minor home repair for our neighbors. If you’re not in a Grow Group yet, please contact Andy Glass to get placed in a group for SST 2016!
