A Fun Summer At RCC

Happy Labor Day!

Slide1

We are less than a week from Rally Day at RCC and as busy as I am getting ready for the year, I am not quite ready to let go of our summer yet.  We’ve had a blast!

The summer started with an amazing Children’s Day celebration, complete with a cook-out that set off the fire alarm, a petting zoo and a photo booth.

At the end of June we hosted a youth bell choir from Connecticut!  They were amazing – so professional and fantastic musicians!  It was a great night of music, food and fellowship!

Our “Prayerful Paddlers” took three trips this summer – we had over a dozen kayaks and canoes hit the water.

VBS was awesome!  We used Cokesbury’s curriculum “Workshop of Wonders” and had so much fun!

The church itself had a major facelift!  In addition to these awesome ladies working their green thumb magic, the church was also painted and a new door was installed by our offices.

Book club discussed this hilarious book!  A must-read, especially if you love Melanie’s blog.

SO MUCH AMAZING MUSIC!  Beatles Sunday, a cappella group (I sang in church more this summer than I have in the three years I have been here!) and some fantastic soloists.

As much as I am looking forward to seeing what the fall season will bring, I am a little sad to see the summer end.  On a personal level, it was a little hectic – between the surgery I had back in June and the arrival of my nephew, I’ve found myself frazzled at times.  But I am so grateful for my awesome husband and my amazing friends who have listened to me, taken care of me and distracted me when I was feeling under the weather.

A new season is among us!  Thanks be to God!
