ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 30th at 7 pm!
All are encouraged to attend Charge Conference in Rock Valley. 
We’ll be voting on decisions for our church,
so a good turnout of our members would be beneficial. 
We will need to arrive by 6:30, so meet at the church at 6 to carpool.


This coming November our church will be celebrating 140 years!
We will be honoring the anniversary with a potluck on
Sunday, November 2nd following worship during fellowship time. 
*We will also be ordering church T-shirts!
An order form can be found on this page.
Please note that the DEADLINE to order shirts
is this coming Sunday, October 19th!
An anonymous donation is being given to cover the cost of children’s t-shirts for families whose budget may not allow for their purchase.  Parents requesting these shirts should fill out their order form and place a star by their child’s size to indicate they are requesting one of the donated shirts.  The parent’s total cost will then not include the cost of the shirts so marked.  It is the hope of the Ad Council that all members and children of our church will be able to have and wear these “Catch the Fire” t-shirts.


Join us for worship on October 19th for uplifting instrumental music by Joel Finnesgard & Family-Sound Of The Trumpet
A free-will offering will be received. 

Third Avenue Youth will hold their annual Pumpkin Auction & Bake Sale
on Sunday, October 19th here in the fellowship hall. 
The auction will begin following worship. 
Funds raised will go to youth group mission activities. 

Please visit our conference website at www.iaumc.org for helpful information about spiritual care during disaster response.

A free devotional “Praying Into the Storm-Carrying the Burdens of Those Who Experience Disasters” by Rev. Karl Goodfellow is on the narthex table: pick one up for yourself and/or your neighbors and friends.

The second Sunday of each month is available for anyone wishing to provide Special Music during worship.  If this is something you would like to do, please contact the office to sign up.

The Sept./Oct. issues of Upper Room are in the Narthex, and are available for $1.50 each.

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

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

ATLAS is in need of winter coats-especially children’s winter coats. 
We are holding a Coat Drive to help.  Coats can be dropped off here at the church.  Thank you!



Thank you!

~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.
