Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting – Sunday, June 23rd following our one 10 a.m. service.
Session has called a congregational meeting for Sunday, June 23rd to elect officers and nominating committee members. This meeting will follow our one 10:00 a.m. worship service that Sunday. We invite you all to join us and to celebrate the women and men that God is calling to use their gifts to lead in our congregation in the coming year.
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.

Youth Group: May 18 – Hike to Poo Poo Point
1pm – 7pm
Poo Poo Point is a fun and relatively easy hike. Once you are at the top you will see a nice view of Issaquah and you can watch hang gliders take off! Bring your hiking boots and meet us at RPC at 1pm and we will carpool together to the trailhead located next to Issaquah High School. Open to Youth and parents. Contact Jared Chase, firstname.lastname@example.org, Director of Children and Youth Ministry to take a hike!
Our next Books on the Dinner Table gathering will be Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 pm. We will be talking about Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life by Tish Harrison Warren.
“In the overlooked moments and routines of our day, we can become aware of God’s presence in surprising ways. How do we embrace the sacred in the ordinary and the ordinary in the sacred? Framed around one ordinary day, this book explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us.”
Books on the Dinner Table is open to all women. We will gather at 6:00 pm at the home of Lynn Shomber in Woodinville. Please plan to bring a simple appetizer to share and join us for an evening of conversation and fellowship. For more information, questions, and RSVP, please contact Juliann Phillips, email@example.com or 206-419-1050.
VBS registration forms are now available on the table at the back of the Sanctuary. We will join Overlake Park children and youth as we “Roar”! Contact Jared Chase, Director of Children and Youth Ministry to receive form, firstname.lastname@example.org.
