Around RLC this week: Men’s Event

rlcThis past weekend, the men of RLC gathered to learn, fellowship and enjoy some great food! Men’s Ministry Coordinator Patrick Klein spoke about the last semester of the men’s life group where they studied “Fight” by Kenny Lucky. Patrick also shared with the men about the upcoming Main Event Men’s Conference in Nashville featuring Hall of Fame NFL Quarterback Kurt Warner. Men who attended last year’s conference also spoke about their experience attending and their excitement for this coming year.

The group also talked about the importance of making a difference in everyone around them. Patrick shared with the group that as they strive to raise sons and daughters to know and love Jesus, it doesn’t stop there, but extends to everyone they come in contact with in the classroom or on the job.

If you would like more information on the RLC Men’s ministry or the 2017 Main Event conference, be sure to stop by the Welcome Center and ask for Patrick!

Last Thursday, volunteers from Real Life Church shared a little appreciation for teachers in many city and county schools! RLC provided two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to many local schools as a way to thank teachers for all they do for students throughout the year. It was a great activity for some little RLCers to serve right alongside their parents (and enjoy a few donuts at the same time!)

rlcThis past Friday, the women of Real Life Church came together to have fun, enjoy fellowship with each other and learn from speaker and author Marie Humphrey. Marie spoke on “the power of one” and how we are all called to make a difference for Christ, even if we don’t see the fruits of our labor until we get to Heaven. Be on the lookout for more opportunities to get together with your fellow ladies of RLC. And men, be sure to join in on some fun at the RLC Men’s Gathering on Sunday, May 7th at 5 pm at RLC.

Baptism at RLC!

rlc

“Then Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” -Acts 2:38

 

Around Real Life Church, we love to see people take the step to get baptized. And if you’ve been thinking about baptism, there is a big opportunity coming up on February 5!

“This will be our first baptism in our building with our own baptistry,” Pastor Brandon Cannon says. “This is something we are really excited about.”

At RLC, we believe that baptism is the outward symbol of what Christ has done in our lives and although there is nothing special about the water or the baptistry, it is an important step for any believer of Christ.

“The big deal is that we are telling the world what Christ has done on the inside,” Pastor Brandon says. “We went down in our sins and then raised to life again. That’s why we celebrate baptism. We celebrate the miracle that has already occurred.”

In order to participate in the February 5 baptism, those interested need to turn in a Contact Card or let someone at the Welcome Center know you would like to participate by January 29th. You’ll receive an email containing all details you will need to know for the day. It’s that easy, so get signed up now!

Also, be sure to get ready for the next semester of life groups. Life Group sign ups will start January 29th! Be sure to jump in a group. It is the best way to connect, be accountable and get involved at RLC!

Around RLC this week: All things Christmas!

rlc

There are less than two weeks left until Christmas, and you can definitely tell around Real Life Church! On December 4, RLCers came together for a kick-off to Christmas dinner. The night was full of great food, beautiful decorations, fun times and festive songs! Thanks to all who came out to the dinner! Check out some photos from the event below:

Next up, mark on your calendars that RLC’s “Christmas Eve Eve” service is happening Friday, December 23, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. This service serves is a special time to stop and truly worship this Christmas.

“This time of year it can be so easy to get wrapped up in the Christmas parties, buying gifts, and long check out lines,” Pastor Brandon says. “Yes, Christmas means getting involved in all those things. However, it is also so much more than that. Our Christmas Eve Eve service is intended to provide a moment outside all that hurry and scurry so we can be thankful for the real reason for Christmas.”

He hopes your family will make plans to attend the Christmas Eve Eve service before you may need to head out to other places for family events. It is the perfect continuation of what the church has studied through our “Fear Not” series this month.

“More people deal with hopelessness this time of year than any other. God’s Word tells us over and over again to lower or expectation of man and raise our expectation of God. The Fear Not Series is all about realizing that God will is FOR us. We do not have to live in fear of what others say, what our bank account looks like, what our government is doing, or anything else. Our Hope comes from Christ alone,”,” Pastor Brandon says. “The Christmas Eve Eve service is all about celebrating this fact. We’re going to be talking about how “God was, God is, and God will be with us.”

This year’s service will feature the singing of Kent Bryant and there will be a Christmas devotion, candle lighting and time of communion. Pastor Brandon hopes that you make plans now to attend this special event with your family.

“I love holiday traditions. My family creates a new one almost every year. We do new pajamas for Christmas Eve. We open one present right before Christmas. We have traditions for how we eat breakfast on Christmas morning. We have traditions for everything,” Pastor Brandon says. “However, my favorite Christmas tradition is worship with my church family on Christmas Eve Eve. It is a great time to place everything into perspective and remember that above the noise of the holiday season, it’s all about Jesus. Start a holiday tradition with your family by joining us December 23rd at RLC. You won’t regret it.”

Around RLC this week: Baby Dedication

rlc

At Real Life Church, we love celebrating new additions to our church family. This past Sunday, we had the opportunity to celebrate the dedication of two sweet babies: William Silas Caulk and Carter Reid Gilliam. We believe a baby dedication symbolizes a parent’s desire to raise their children to know and trust the Lord as their personal Savior. It also serves as a time for our church family to pledge to partner with these families. Check out some photos from this dedication and please stop by the Welcome Center if you are interested in dedicating your own child!

Around RLC this week: Get your Christmas shoeboxes ready!

rlc

 

 

 

 

Happy Halloween! Most of you may be thinking about costumes and candy today, but it’s {almost} the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right RLCers, Christmas is only 54 days away! And this year, Real Life Church is doing an fun project to help children on the other side of the United States have a happy Christmas, and we need YOUR helimg_7842p!

RLC is in the process of collecting shoe boxes full of goodies for little ones that will go to a Native American reservation in New Mexico! And it is super easy to get involved! Pick up a list of needed items from the Welcome Center at church, grab a shoe box (you can wrap the box and lid separately with wrapping paper!), and fill it with all the approved items from the list.

The list includes items such as small toys, brushes, books, toiletries, craft supplies, socks and underwear! And most items can be picked up at low costs.

The best part is you can include a note and picture of your family in the box so that the child can learn a little about who sent them their box. Once you are finished filling, fasten the box with a rubber band, attach a note on the outside of the box if the box is intended for a certain age range and gender and bring it to the Welcome Center by November 13, 2016.

This project could be a fun way for a life group or family to work together to fill multiple boxes! Have fun shopping for different items and then get together, listen to Christmas music, eat fun treats and stuff your boxes full of goodies!

If you have any questions, be sure to contact Sara Laferte at sklaferte@gmail.com.

Have fun bringing in the holiday season with this great project! Thanks RLC!
