August 2022 Newsletter
I just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska with my family. Life changing & it’s beautiful in every way. While one wouldn’t think of a vacation being a spiritual experience, being in the abundant Alaskan nature does have a way of connecting you to God. You combine that with hearing people’s stories, experiencing this with your family, and knowing how many things need to happen for it all to work out safely and in a fun way, you realize that God is always there. When I wasn’t sure on what to do or who to be, I asked, “God show me the way” and I just listened.
I’m now back to church writing the August newsletter and have learned that our amazing RLC community (and others outside our community) participated in the survey focused on how we identify ourselves to the outside world. We are still in the process of reviewing the results, but here is who participated:
We had our first community event on 7/6 and the celebration of being together turned out great. We even had neighbors along with our local fire and emergency medical teams join us. You combine that with great food/drinks, Jenga contests, lawn chess, and a water balloon contest that included our own Pastor Mary getting soaked and you will understand why I can’t wait until our next event, which happens to be August 3rd. Below are the remaining community picnic schedules:
As we continue to live our mission, vision, and values, we will be looking at the results of the survey. Then, I will be setting up a task force of 4 to 5 people with the goal of providing options and a recommendation for a new sign and for the building of a Gazebo/Pavilion to council. I’m personally committed to these initiatives as our members have said it was important and we can fulfill honoring Sue Toth’s vision, and the memorial provided in her honor. I am looking for people who share this same passion and can bring skills and their network forward to provide a successful outcome on these two projects. Please let me, Pastor Mary, or anyone on council know if you are interested in participating.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! We hope you include RLC as part of your fun and connection.
God’s Peace to you all,
"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat." --Jesus
