Jump Start to the Fall!
Rev. Marcia and the Evangelism Committee
are pleased to be hosting
an All-Church Mini-Retreat
on the following upcoming evenings:

Wednesday, August 26th, at 7 p.m.    Church Leadership
Wednesday, September 2nd, at 7 p.m.    Effective Worship
Wednesday, September 16th, at 7 p.m.     Mission/Evangelism                                                        & Methodism

Video and discussion will be in the chapel. 
Refreshments will be served.

Each Wednesday, we’ll revitalize ourselves and our Church with Rev.  Adam Hamilton’s 3-part video series on “Leading Beyond the Walls:  Lessons in Leadership, Worship, Preaching, & Mission Outreach.” 

All members and friends are invited to attend, and be empowered through this inspirational Methodist program, directed at all “ministers” of the church.  We’ll follow-up with discussion on how God may be calling us in the direction and decision-making of the RRUMC.   We’ll learn:
1)Characteristics of highly vital churches
2)Principles of successful church leadership
3)Ideas on how to improve Outreach/Missions focusing on the   unchurched, visitors, healing ministries, reinventing UMW, etc.
4)Why Methodism Matters Now more than ever in our culture

Please bring an open heart, and ideas for new ministries!


A new sign up sheet is on the bulletin board (East entry). It’s a sign up for those interested in learning how to operate the sound system.  We are in need (especially during the summer months) of individuals to run the sound system during worship, as well as for other special events.  If this is something you would like to help with, please list your name. Info on training will be made available in the near future. Thank you!

Also on the bulletin board are sign up sheets for liturgist and special music. If you are able to help in these areas, please put your name down. Thank you!

The July/August issues of Upper Room are available for $1.50 each. They are located on the table by the East stairs.

Prayer concerns can be called into the office (472-2324) or emailed to the office at rockrapidsumc@hickorytech.net or Rev. Marcia at msangel@hickorytech.net and they will be sent out.

If you (or someone you know) is not receiving the emails of the monthly church newsletter or weekly prayer partner & would like to be included, please contact the office to add your name to the list. 

For those who are not able to receive our monthly newsletter by email, printed copies are available on the table by the mailboxes.

The Flower Calendar for 2015 is hanging on the bulletin board by the East entry doors. We invite everyone to sign-up for the Sunday that is most convenient for you-to give altar flowers this coming year in memory or in honor of a loved one.

Extra directories have been placed in the pew hymnal racks.  It was thought that having these available during worship would be beneficial, especially for someone new to our congregation or just visiting!

If you would like to receive services from RRUMC Caring Hands Meal Ministry and/or Transportation Ministry, contact the church office.

Thank you & God Bless!

~Our Mission Statement~

Inspired by the truth of Scripture,
we believe that God's primary purpose for our church is to bring all persons into spiritual relationship with God through Jesus Christ by our
uplifting words, our loving deeds and our Christian example so that we may reach out and minister to others,
in each of whom we see the very image of Christ.
