One of our Prime Timers – Richard M. – developed a survey to assess not only your interests regarding Prime Time ministry but also your sense of importance regarding the white board items named during our Nov. 5 summit.
Take the survey by clicking here.
This survey will be open for about two weeks.
You are invited to join a group from Redland that will inspect and load shoeboxes on Nov. 27, from 3:00-7:00pm. There is a job for everyone, and you’ll develop great connections while completing important work! Must be age 13 or older. Contact Mike Smith for details (contact info available at church).
Sign up here.
On Sunday, Nov. 5, about 80 senior adults, age 60 and up, met in the ROC Foyer for a delicious lunch and some exciting idea sharing. This is in preparation for our relaunch of the Prime Time Senior Adults Ministry at Redland.
Here is what you can look for in the future:
- Great events to build community, whether small activities or trips together
- Opportunities to learn and grow (like on our upcoming Museum of the Bible trip, Jan. 20)
- Ministry both to each other and the rest of the church.
So what is next?
- Be sure to join our email list to receive a weekly (max) update of Prime Time news. Just select “Senior Adults” under the interests section. Look for a letter with some more detailed meeting follow up, plus a survey that you can take to help us moving forward.
- Take a look at our new Prime Time webpage. Find it under Adults (at the top), then Senior Adults Ministry (on the left).
- A team is currently being put together to help with the planning process.
Amani ya Juu (“higher peace” in Swahili) is a non-profit sewing and training program for marginalized women in Africa. Women at Amani are learning to work together through faith in God who provides a peace that transcends all cultural and ethnic differences.
It is our privilege to partner with our African sisters to host our 6th annual sale of Amani products in the ROC Foyer on Saturday, November 11, 9am-5pm and Sunday, November 12, 1-4pm. Handcrafted items include: bags, jewelry, kitchen and home décor, Christmas items and more in a wide range of prices. Start your Christmas shopping early and support the wonderful women of Amani!
Did you know that a growing group of men have begun meeting for Bible study and discussion? The study is an 8 week series on Friendship. Too many men have become isolated from strong, male friendships. Many friendships aren’t of a caliber that truly encourages them to pursue a man’s walk with Christ. The result leaves men disconnected, which is described as “being two quarts low in their spiritual lives” – everything is harder! These meetings are all about helping men transform through strong relationships.
Men, age 16 and up, you are invited to jump into the process.
- Tuesdays at 6:00 pm
- Tuesdays at 7:45 pm
- Thursdays at 6:00 am
For more information, contact Matt Horton or the church office.
All men are invited to join us for the Manly Potluck Dinner. Bring your specialty dish – whether a gourmet food or a even bag of chips.

Saturday, September 30, 6:00pm in the ROC Foyer.
