The worship is designed for all ages and includes lively Christian and contemporary songs featuring music by "The Buzz" with interactive sermons and dialogues. We purposely do not have nursery at RELC, so families can enjoy learning to worship together at any age. A "kids' corner" includes a place and space for younger children to learn and play quietly while enjoying the worship experience - complete with children's activity bulletins that outline the message of the day at younger ages.
Musicians and singers wanted: This service is looking for people to join the music leadership of weekly services. If interested in joining "The Buzz" on a rotational basis, call Mary Beth at (612) 861-2265 x3
