Go Above and Beyond for
Mission Outreach

Consider a donation to Mission Outreach when you make your 2020 Commitment. RPC will hold only one pledging season for 2020, this means no 2nd Mile in the spring. We ask that you give first to our General Ministry Budget and then commit to our Mission Outreach Budget, which all goes directly to our Mission Partners.

The last question on the Commitment Form is to “Go above and beyond for Mission Outreach with an additional gift.”
