Fellowship dinners are held on Wednesday evenings in the spring and fall. The venue and style vary from dining in the Fellowship Hall to parking lot picnics, based on the weather and CDC-recommended guidelines. They will resume in April 2022.
Parking Lot Picnics
This group of senior adults (55+ years old) gathers at the Roanoker Restaurant on the second Friday of each month at 12:30 PM for a time of fellowship and fun. This group is currently suspended due to COVID-19.
Second Friday Singles Luncheon - currently suspended due to COVID-19
On the second Wednesday of each month, the RCPC Book Club meets in Room 102 off the chapel to discuss the book of the month, as well as selecting the next month's book. The book is listed in the monthly newsletter, The Raleigh Court Herald, and in the This Week @ RCPC e-mail. Sometimes the books are spiritual or religious in nature, but often they are more recent publications that speak to the big issues of life.
Each spring we participate in a local softball league. In addition to softball, the church plans hikes and camping outings in the spring and fall.
Several times each year, we as a church family go together to certain festivals or events. Activities sometimes include a Salem Red Sox baseball game or a Rail Yard Dawgs hockey game. Check the bulletin and This Week @ RCPC e-mail to learn more.
A few times each year we have lunch together as a congregation after worship. Sometimes these meals are provided for everyone, occasionally they are meals where you sign-up to attend ahead of time, and other times they are potluck. Check the church publications throughout the months to see when a Sunday lunch is upcoming.
Young Adults meet monthly for brunch after worship. Contact Isabella at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the group!

Church on the Mountain
Starting in March 2019, we began a congregational retreat to Massanetta Springs Conference Center outside Harrisonburg, Virginia. This weekend gives us time away from the frantic pace of daily living and allows us to deepen our connection to God and one another. This is a ministry for the entire congregation that seeks to form relationships across the generations of the church.
