We are just one week away from SeptemberFest! On September 9, we will be having our worship service outdoors followed by an all-church picnic, complete with music, games, activities, prizes, and delicious food. There will still be KidLife Worship available for the kids. We will also have a giant slip-and-slide for the kids (and brave adults), so be sure to pack bathing suits and towels!

For lunch, we will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, water, lemonade, and sno-kones. Please bring a dish to pass (sides, salads, desserts).

This class takes place over two Sundays - September 30 & October 7, from 6-8pm in the Fireside Room. If you are thinking about membership with Rockford Reformed Church, or if you just want to learn more about us, this class is for you! Attending class in no way obligates you to join. We will explain the basic beliefs and background of the Reformed Church in America and answer any questions regarding our worship, ministry, or doctrine. Childcare available if needed. Registration required. Please contact the office (connect@rockfordrc.org, 616-866-2308) if you would like to participate.

This is the final Sunday to bring in your toilet paper donations! Please bring them to the church lobby - we have a large wooden crate you can place them in. Thank you for helping your neighbors in need!
Small Groups

"New" to Rockford Reformed? "Old" to Rockford Reformed? Whether you are a newcomer to the church or have been coming for years and would like to join with others in a small group Bible study (also sometimes called a Life Group), we are forming groups between now and mid-September. You will have an opportunity to sign up to be part of an existing group or a new group at SeptemberFest on September 9, but you may also let Karen Bazen know before that. Call or email Karen at 364-6066 or karen@bazenfamily.net if you are interested or have questions. Learn more about Life Groups here.
Leader Training for Adult Groups

If you plan to lead an adult group this year or potentially in the future, we encourage you to attend the Adult Leader training from 7-9 p.m. on September 6 in the Fireside Room. Pastor Tim will be leading the training. All leaders are urged to come. Please RSVP by September 5 whether or not you plan to be there.
Female Leaders Needed

Middle School Small Group Leaders Needed. We still have 2 positions we need to fill: 1 female leader for High School (meets Sunday evenings) and 1 female leader for Middle School (meets Wednesday evenings). Please contact Brian Ellis.
