Women's Tuesday Bible Study: The next Tuesday Bible Study will take you through the book Nehemiah: The Courage to Face Opposition . See website for more info. Begins Tuesday, September 10, 9:30-11am .
REAL Men: REAL Men is a group that believes God is actively working in our lives, and that we all have a story that He wants us to tell. It is not a Bible study or an accountability group, and it is not exclusive to RRC, so invite others! Each meeting will feature a speaker. Meet at Arnie's Restaurant, 34 S Squires St, downtown Rockford. The restaurant isn't open at that time, so we have the place to ourselves. Coffee and refreshments will be provided. Friday, September 13, 7am.
new Adult Sunday School: Digging Deeper. Our Digging Deeper Sunday School is a series of discussions based on each Sunday’s sermon. Each week’s leader will guide you in conversation that will let you learn from each other, discuss what you can learn from the sermon on a deeper level, and help you grow in your understanding in how to carry out God’s purpose for your lives. Starts Sunday, September 15.
Ladies' Book Club: The Ladies Book Club is always open to new faces! We meet the last Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Fireside Room.

Men's Prayer Breakfast: Join us in the Fellowship Hall (Room 100) any time. Fellowship, prayer, devotional, coffee, and maybe donuts! Tuesdays at 7am.
Life Groups: A Life Group is a small group of 8-12 people that focuses on three priorities – sharing, study, and support. Life Group members will commit to meet together at least every other week through the school season—and even better, through the summer. We call these “Life Groups” because they are focused on (1) helping us grow in our life in Christ and (2) sharing life together. If you are interested in joining a life group or starting one up, please contact our Life Group Coordinator, Pam Jacobs .
