David and Wendy Ashenbrenner (yep…Austin’s parents) serve and work as missionaries in Guatemala with their organization “Juntos” (Spanish for “Together”). Join us on Sunday, July 7th to hear about their work with refugees and community developers in Northern Guatemala. You will get a chance to learn a great deal about how God is at work in this part of the world and how we here in Redmond might be a part of this work.
Next Sermon Series: Summer is a time for sunshine, respite, and fun! This summer, as we enjoy our days, we will be studying the many times Jesus says “stay awake” or “wake up” in scripture. What does it look like to be awake in the Spirit – when we play, work, or rest? How often do we consider what Jesus is doing in the moment? A “woke” faith means we are aware of Jesus Christ and acting in the Spirit no matter what we do. Where are the places in your life Jesus is calling you to wake up?
Calling all musicians and/or vocalists ~
We will begin our Summer Worship schedule next Sunday, July 7th. During our summer months we would love to invite you to bring your talents to help lead us in worship. Each service will have a space for a piece of “special music” where RPC folks can share a favorite hymn or spiritual song for the week. Please contact the email@example.com with the title of your vocal or instrumental piece you would like to share with us. We hope to hear from you as you firm up your summer travel plans. (I have July 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th and August 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th and September 1st available at this point.)
End Summer Hunger – We are cooperating with Hopelink again this year to help provide food for children who normally receive subsidized breakfast and lunch at school. OVer 15,000 children in North and East King County receive free of reduced-cost meals each day. Hard to imagine, isn’t it?
You can help by donating food or cash. Special grocery bags and cash donation envelopes are available at the doors in the sanctuary. Please fill up the bags and bring them back to church. Your cash or check donation will provide many times more impact than food – please make your check payable to ‘Redmond Presbyterian Church’ and write ‘End Summer Hunger’ on the memo line. Thank you for your concern for our neighbors!
Worshiping Together: This Fall at RPC
At RPC, our commitment is to grow together into the community that Christ calls us to be. Gathering together in Worship has always been an essential moment of growth and community for our church. To build on our strong community, Session has discerned that when we gather for communion on the first Sunday of every month, we will hold one 10:00 a.m. worship service where we can come to the Lord’s Table together. This new schedule will begin in the Fall of 2019. After we return from our Summer schedule, we’ll make this change on the first Sunday in October and each first Sunday moving forward.
This new rhythm will give us the opportunity to all be together in worship on a regular basis. We are looking forward to the ways we will grow as we get to see each other more often and connect on a regular basis. RPC is a caring and loving community and we want to be sure to not take that reality for granted. Coming together regularly and sharing our lives with one another will help us to grow into our identity as a church.
You’ll receive lots of reminders in the weeks and months to come. Session is excited about this new opportunity and we want to invite you to begin marking your calendar now in anticipation.
