The world is engaged in an epic war between forces of good and evil. We need to be aware of the war, understand the enemy, and know how to wage spiritual warfare. If we aren't knowledgable and prepared, we will be vulnerable to the deceptions and temptations of Satan, the enemy of our souls. But greater is he who is in us than he that is in the world! This series will help prepare you to engage in this spiritual war and win through the power of God.

Sundays following the 9:30am service, July 9 - September 3. Back by popular demand! This is a great opportunity to connect with people in a relaxed atmosphere. Don't miss this chance to meet, greet, and eat! Snacks may be simple, such as cookies and milk, but each week is a surprise! Hosts Needed! If your family, small group, or ministry is willing to host a week, please contact Laura Jolliffe.

Sundays, June 4 - August 27, 6pm. Come out and enjoy some Christian music along the banks of the Rogue River in downtown Rockford. Everyone is Welcome! Christian praise music will be provided by music teams from area churches and Christian bands. Join your neighbors & friends every Sunday evening at the Garden Park stage next to the dam for an evening of fellowship and praise, and maybe a family picnic! RRC plays on July 16.

Saturday, July 22, 8am. Take a bite out of the global orphan crisis and enjoy some homemade cookies at the same time! Walk or run the beautiful apple orchards of Robinette's and then enjoy hundreds - maybe thousands - of homemade cookies and chocolate milk at the finish line.
