The Order of Worship for This Sunday

Call to Worship  (based on Psalm 145)

The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. He rules throughout all generations.
The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does. The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads. The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness.

I will praise the Lord, and may everyone on earth bless his holy name forever and ever. Let us worship him today!

Sunday's Scripture Reading

Genesis 32:22-31  (New Revised Standard Version)
22  The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 
23  He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had. 
24  And Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. 
25  When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob's thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. 
26  Then he said, "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go, unless you bless me."
27  And he said to him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob." 
28  Then he said, "Your name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed." 
29  Then Jacob asked him, "Tell me, I pray, your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there he blessed him. 
30  So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, "For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved." 
31  The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his thigh.

Hopewell Middle School Supply Drive

T he 2020-2021 school year is just around the corner, and although no one knows exactly what "schooling" will look like this fall, the Hopewell Principal has indicated that many students will still need help with supplies (which can be used at school and/or home). Hopewell Middle School has requested the continued support of RRCC in providing much needed student school supplies, to begin the school year.
The Principal and Counselors have met to discuss the most needed items and also provided an approximate quantity needed and the Outreach Team has decided to purchase the supplies rather than request donations of supplies from RRCC members, due to the social distancing measures which continue to be in place. Although we do have a budget for Outreach to expense on events and supplies, we are providing an opportunity for additional donations, should anyone be interested in contributing to this worthy cause.
In the three years since we began this project in 2017, we have donated school supplies valued at over $2,000 to the students at Hopewell who need supplies. This year, more than ever, it is important the students have the supplies that they need and are engaged academically and know that they are supported by the community. It will be a school year like never before.

Please consider making a contribution to this project with a check or online contribution  marked (Hopewell School Supplies) during any week in July.

Thank you for your help in supporting the students of Hopewell Middle School, with school supplies, in our on-going effort to "embrace our neighbors with Christ-like love"!
