Growing in faith – serving God by serving Others

There are many ways to Grow in faith at any age at RELC.
We feature a variety of options for children through adults.  
Here are just a few features in our GROW ministry base listed below – for questions or more information please contact Mary Beth Weibel, Outreach and Grow Minister 612.861.2265 x3:
PB&J Kids:
 This is our Christian Education base – or as we say “Sunday School on Wednesday Nights.”  In this faith and fun hour long form at children three years- 3rd grade have time to learn a weekly theme, share a story, make a craft, share a1rlc snack and have fun in Godly play time. Group meets Wednesday nights 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
This program resumes Oct 09 @ 6:30 p.m. with many summer opportunities to be dreamed!
Y-LIFE Youth:
 Our monthly gathering of 4th grade plus offers a deeper understand of faith, fun and fellowship as children transfer from Little Learners to Youth Group.  In a five hour monthly block there is faith education, meal preparation an


d sharing, fun hour and a service project.  This group provides a platform for future Confirmation and Mission Trip components of faith development in the program.  It is open to any youth in our congregation or community and the affirmation of baptism (confirmation) is not a requirement to be a part of faithful living for tweens and teeners.  At 6:00 p.m. each gathering, the youth will join the young adult ministry Vacancy for some mentoring discussion of faith and a fun project.   A confirmation component is added to this group in the Fall of 2019 with Confirmation Preparation Workshop series and Celebration of Confirmation on November 24, 2019.  This program meets the second Sunday of each month (except December).  This program resumes Fall 2019.  During the summer this group does Mission in the Cities
Mission in the Cities:
This program kicks into high gear in the summer and quarterly during the school year on school release days!  Designed for youth ages 4th grade thru high school, there is always some way and some place to serve God by serving others.  Together we will explore those passions, while also serving as mentors to our summer programs and creating work and faith days as a team together!  our next adventures are Oct 17, 2019 and sometime during Winter Break in December.
Mens and Women’s Education/Bible Study
 There are adult classes offered throughout the year in many different topics related to living out life faithfully between the Sundays.  Currently we have several adults group options at RLC including; a Men’s Ministry program (meets first and third Saturday mornings), Three Women’s Circle groups that meet monthly or bi-monthly, a Women of Faith Coffee and Conversations resuming January 2020 and a weekly Bible Study with Pastor Brian happening on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Library.
Vacancy Youth Adult Gatherings – Currently on hiatus
