You are invited to join us!
We are here because of the good news of Jesus Christ.
We are sinners who have been rescued from sin by Jesus Christ. Though we have different backgrounds, ethnicities, opinions, and personalities, we find commonality in the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We gather each week to worship the one true God revealed in the Bible. We're grateful for the privilege He has given us to worship, live, and serve in our local community.
We rely on God's grace to give us true unity to function together as one body in Jesus Christ, submitted to the Word of God and committed to living that Word out in our daily lives.
What to Expect
Walking into a church for the first time can be intimidating, so we want to help you know what to expect when you visit.
We promise not to embarrass you or point you out. If you wish you can fill out a connection card and we’ll follow up with you later. You can come knowing you are in the midst of a group of broken people, whom all need God’s grace.
What to Wear
We have a diversity of people attend our services and are thankful for a congregation with a variety of dress. You'll find anything from very casual jeans and t-shirts to polos and slacks to suits. We encourage you to come as you are.
Throughout the year, we offer Sunday school called "Greenhouse." In these Greenhouse classes, we come together from all ages to learn topically about God’s Word and its application to all areas of life. Please see events for further details about the next Greenhouse class offering.
Preaching at RCC is expositional, meaning that it seeks to systematically work through passages of Scripture, declaring the point of a particular Biblical passage, with practical application rooted in the redemptive story of Scripture. Our sermon series regularly alternate between the Old and New Testaments. And all preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
There is reserved parking on the N Woodrow St. side of the building for our first time guests. Please follow the signs upon arriving as we will be ready for you!
We are thankful to have a congregation with many children. We encourage all parents to train their children to worship as part of the church. We provide a nursery for children up to age 4 for both service times and children in grades K - 5 during the second service. Some children remain in the service the entire time, and we welcome their presence.
Our service is intentional, in that it follows a deliberate order of worship, but it’s not formal in style. We sing several songs, offer congregational and pastoral prayers to God, hear Scripture read, and give our offerings and tithes. We close each morning worship service with a word of commission. And after service, it's normal to find folks talking over the sermon and events of the past week in a time of rich fellowship.
We sing a blend of lyrically rich songs both recent and historic with a strong theological foundation. Those of us who are comfortable with music from one particular era have discovered that we come to enjoy other songs we had not previously encountered. We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body enthusiastically singing praise to God with one voice. Some Sundays we sing with piano, guitar, and drums, and others we sing with just piano accompaniment.
At this time, we are asking adults and teens working with children under 12 to wear masks.
Our priority is the health of the church both spiritually and physically.
We believe that the spiritual benefits of gathering together as a congregation — without dividing into masked and unmasked sections or services — outweigh the physical risks at this time.
We will continue to watch the numbers and severity of cases in our area and seek to make wise decisions accordingly, and we appreciate your prayers and your love for us and one another as we continue to navigate these days.
