This summer we are exploring our understanding of God through children’s books! In children’s sermons, Summer (Bible) Adventures, pulpit sermons, and Summer Story Adventures!
One Monday night each month we gather ALL AGES for a meal, story and activities related to the book.
Come join us for food and fun!
Bring a friend or make a new one!
Mondays, July 10th and August 7th, 5:30-7:30pm
INTERGENERATIONAL ~ At RUCC we continue to experiment with ways to engage multiple generations at the same time. If an event is advertised as “intergenerational” you can be sure that it will actively engage lots of different age groups. But sometimes within one event the young people will need to be patient as a portion of the event relates more to adults, or adults might need to engage their inner child in order to enter into the opportunity. Know that when engaging multiple generations – sometimes what is happening is tailored to you, other times you must work to tailor yourself to engage well with what is happening. Be prepared to enter in!
Everyone, men and women, are invited to an evening of pampering.
Silent auction, gift bags, door prizes, food, drink, and great company will fill our event. Invite your friends and family. This will be an incredible event.
This is a fundraiser for church, so donations are welcome!
- Dr Matt from Robin Center Chiropractic will be available to talk about the benefits of Chiropractic care and total wellness.
- Lynda Jones, esthetician from Rocco Altobelli, will be providing mini facials and skin care/makeup consultation.
- Ali Runyon, a hairstylist from Rocco Altobelli, will be providing hair services and consultations. Ali is going on a mission trip so a percentage of the evening’s proceeds will benefit her cause
- We will be doing yoga, so bring your yoga mats if interested in participating.

Welcome to the RUCC Holy Week Labyrinth experience:
The Labyrinth will be available in the Fellowship Hall during the following days and times:
Wednesday, April 12th: 12pm-8pm
Thursday, April 13th: 12pm-5pm
Friday, April 14th: 12pm-7pm
Saturday, April 15th: 12pm-5pm
The Labyrinth journey has been used for hundreds of years as a walking prayer/meditation. There is no wrong way to use the labyrinth. Picture walking a path that has 36 turns as you make your way to the center. Think of all the things you can let go of every time you turn. It is an amazing walk to the center where you are held in the safety of Love. It is a powerful thing to walk the labyrinth and find yourself at home. You may stay in the center as long as you need. And then you walk out the same path, turning 36 more times as you take on all that you have learned. We have made this experience possible for you to prepare your heart, soul and mind to experience Easter in a new way.
Maundy Thursday, April 13th
6:30 – Dinner
7:00 – Worship
We will gather around tables outside the sanctuary for a simple meal catered by Athens Cafe and worship. We explore the meaning of the last supper and the power of breaking bread in our community. This is a very meaningful service that reminds us of both the sorrow and hope of the week of Jesus’ death. The service will close with an option for foot or hand washing as a way to offer love and service to one another.
Good Friday, April 14th
7pm – Worship
Good Friday will be marked with an evening service of prayer, reading and reflection on the story of Jesus’ journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to the hill of Calvary. We invite you to join us on this important day in the life of Christ and in our journey towards Easter.
