Celebration of Community 1920x1080

A Celebration of Community
Sunday, November 2, 2014
We will celebrate our 175th Anniversary, and our focus will be on the joy of being part of a community. In Acts, there was not a needy person among them because of the fellowship and support they shared in the community. That's our vision... and that's who we have been... a community of support and mission.

Acts 4:32-35
Dr. Lane Alderman, preaching

 Worship Communion at RPC Communion
The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is celebrated monthly at RPC, usually the first Sunday of each month.  Our "regular style" of serving means that worshippers remain seated and elders bring the elements to pass in the pews. Several times a year, we serve using the ancient method of intinction. This style involves worshippers coming forward to one of several stations where elders and clergy offer bread and the cup. Worshippers break off a piece of the bread, dip it into the cup, and partake. Elders direct people when to come forward and return to their seats. The Lord's Supper is also celebrated at our Ash Wednesday service, as well on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week.  The table at RPC is an open table... open to all who claim Jesus as Lord.

Children in Worship
RPC encourages families to worship together each week. God has asked adults and children alike to respond to the awesomeness of God through worship. We believe that the best way to teach our children to worship is by worshiping with them.
