Sunday School At 9:30am, we have numerous Sunday school classes for adults, youth, and children. In these classes, we study the Bible and enjoy being together in a smaller and more informal setting. At various times, we also offer our Membership Matters class during the 9:30 hour, where those considering RCC membership can learn more about our church. Corporate Worship/Childcare We worship the Lord together at 10:30am immediately following Sunday school. Our corporate worship is simple, centered around the Word of God, and focused on Jesus Christ. Childcare is provided for children who are 4 years old and under. If you have questions about introducing your children to corporate worship, we would be happy to speak with you and provide you with some helpful resources. Profile Sunday morning gatherings usually consist of around 150 to 200 people. With regard to age, our membership is relatively young. We have a large number of families with young children. Music We begin our time of worshiping God by singing "psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in our hearts"; (Colossians 3:16), and our songs are a mix of old and new music. One of the great blessings of congregational singing at RCC is hearing one another sing with loud voices and joyful hearts, as we use this means of grace so that the word of Christ would dwell in us richly (Colossians 3:16) . Prayer After we sing, we pray. We bring our prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication to our gracious Lord who hears us. Bible Reading The public reading of God’s word is next. Usually we read a passage from the Old Testament, a passage from the New Testament, and the section of Scripture upon which the sermon is based. Sermon Preaching at RCC is expositional, which means that we seek to explain the meaning of a Biblical text. Sermons are long by modern standards, usually lasting between 45 and 60 minutes. Our goal in preaching and hearing is to understand and apply the Word of God to our daily lives. The gospel of Jesus Christ is what drives our preaching. The Lord’s Supper After the sermon, we partake of the Lord’s Supper. This is a time of reflection, self-examination and communion with our Savior. The Lord’s table is a "family meal" that is open to all Christians. We joyfully observe the Lord's Supper every Sunday morning. Benediction We end corporate worship, usually around 12:15pm or 12:30pm, with singing and a benediction. Although the formal time of our meeting is over at this point, one of the characteristics of RCC is that many folks stay and enjoy speaking with one another long after the worship service is over.
