May Opportunity for Generosity:
Roanoke Area Ministries - RAM
Due to COVID-19, the ministry of RAM has temporarily shifted. Some of the daily services are suspended but the provision of meals continues each day with pre-packaged meals. RCPC traditionally provides volunteers to cook in the kitchen and our pastor serves on the Board of Directors. Our Communion Fund offering helps to support RAM's emergency utility and rent assistance programs. These donations are yet another way we can support the ongoing work of RAM in our community. We thank you for your generosity!
While we are unable to host our regular congregational opportunities, you are invited to join us for two different Bible studies using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Zoom links available in This Week @ RCPC
Wednesdays at 11:00 AM with Andrew Whaley
Wednesdays at 7:00 PM with Leigh Sackett
The Apostle Paul wrote letters to his churches, words of encouragement, correction, praise, and hope. As the church was learning what it meant to be the community of Jesus in the world, his words guided their common witness through persecutions, internal conflict, and theological questions about life and death. Often Paul writes these letters because something prevents him from being with the people physically. He longs to be together with the churches in body, but because of travel problems, imprisonment, or other obligations he cannot be present with them.
"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved." Acts 2:42-47
The Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church Preschool was established to provide a ministry to the preschool-aged children of this church and our community. At RCPC Preschool, our staff works together to lovingly guide our children through a program of spiritual, physical, emotional and mental growth.
