Approximately 200 people that don’t worship here enter our building each week. Each week, 60-75 families come to receive food that BOLD volunteers are able to share. RELC hosts three scout troops—Cub scouts, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts—approximately 100 kids and their families. We have been able to host community events like the Neighborhood Pride event a few years ago.
Add to that about 100 people who worship at New City Presbyterian Church which is very grateful to be able to meet in the other half of our building on Sunday mornings. By opening our doors to them, we help to share God’s love with our community. Both congregations share that same mission—and we are happy to help them reach the world for Christ.
As we look forward to 2020, we plan to invest $15,000 in needed maintenance and updates to make our building more welcoming to our guests. This goal will be possible through the generosity of the worshiping community of RELC. Our overall goal is to increase giving by $1000 per week. As you consider your giving for the coming year, we ask that you pray about how God would have you contribute to this and the other ministry visions of the church.
