Calling All Moms!

Summer Oasis Event

To any moms who would like to have a morning just to talk to another adult and let the kids run wild, join us at Weaver's Orchard on August 12.  We'll meet at 10am to pick fruit and then eat lunch. Those not interested in picking fruit can meet us at 11 at the playground. This is an informal meet up, but if you'd like to be added to the contact list for future updates or if you need the address, add your name via the green plus button.
Oasis Student Ministries is excited to kick off the new school year with an event at French Creek State Park on August 20 from 2-7pm. This event is for all 6th-12th graders (including those who are entering 6th grade in the fall). We will have a picnic and then go boating and hang out by the lake. If you would like to join OR if you happen to have a kayak or canoe that we could borrow for the fun, please email [email protected]

Join Us for Lunch

If you are a first time visitor or have been coming for the past few months, you're invited to join us for the next Newcomer Lunch. This is a time to meet some of the leaders and staff, ask questions, and get to know some other faces here at RCC. Lunch will be served immediately following the service on August 21. You do not need to RSVP, but if you have questions, email [email protected]

Park Work Day

Baptism Sunday

Many years ago, RCC adopted Heritage Park on Canal Street. Periodically, we plan a work day to keep the park looking fresh and beautiful. Come help us clean up the park just in time for Baptism Sunday! Let us know if you can help through the green plus button.
On September 11, we will have another Baptism Sunday at Heritage Park. We invite you to contact us if you or someone in your family are interested in being baptized. We will have an informational class on Sunday, August 28. After the baptisms, everyone is invited to stay for lunch and celebrate!

Fall Fest: Family Corner

Fall Fest at West Reading is one of the biggest community events of the year. We offer a Family Corner with free refreshments, games, and activities for kids. We need volunteers to help this event be successful. Please let us know if you are interested in helping with set up, tear down, crafts, food, or hospitality!

CONNECT Sunday

The fifth Sunday of every month is our CONNECT Sunday, which is when we take intentional time to provide the opportunity to get to know one another more deeply. There will be a lunch immediately following a shortened service and everyone is welcome to come!

Our next CONNECT Sunday is October 30.

Sabbath Sunday

On the fourth Sunday of every month, we pause from our regular schedule to focus on connection and rest. We host a small, unplugged service in our church building, but we also encourage you to find a new way to get to know others in our church family. This can look like a small gathering in someone's house, a hike, lunch at a park, etc. If you are interested in hosting a gathering or are looking for a place to join, go here.

Family Ministries' Resource Page

If your child(ren) is a part of the preschool or RCC Kids classes, we have a new resource page for you. Here you can find the lesson videos for each week of our teaching series to follow along when your child is not able to attend.

Connection Breakfast

Get Involved

Elijah House

All guys are invited to come to the service early every Sunday for breakfast. This time is intended for connection and good food - there is no program or structured discussion. If you've been wanting to get to know some other men at RCC, this is the perfect time.  

Questions? Email o[email protected].
If you're looking for a way to get connected, make friends, serve, and take an active step in being a part of our church family, here's your chance to get involved! Here are a few: volunteer in one of the children's classes (infant - 5th grade), be an Oasis leader (6th -12th grade), pick up and deliver food donations with the food ministry, bring meals to those who are recovering following having a baby or an illness, play/sing on the worship team, etc. Find a list of our most pressing needs here, or email Amanda if you'd like more ideas of where you can plug in.
This is a 10-week, intensive that focuses on inner healing from past wounds and trauma that are directly connected to our present habits and patterns. It starts August 31st and will go through November 4th. It will be on Wednesday nights from 6-10pm, & two Saturday half days. Dinner will be provided. Let us know if you're interested via the green plus sign.
