Jr. Church participants (PreK-K) will be dismissed from the worship service at the beginning of the offertory.
Every child must be escorted by a parent. Please leave and reenter the worship service at the back of the sanctuary so there will be as little disruption as possible.
A Jr. Church volunteer will meet you with a clipboard just outside the double doors in the MPR.
Each parent will indicate those allowed to pick up their child from Jr. Church by checking all the appropriate boxes on the sign-in sheet.
Jr. Church volunteers will escort the children to their classroom while parents return to the worship service.
Following the worship service, any individual indicated on the sign-in sheet can check the child out of Jr. Church by signing in the appropriate space on the sign-in sheet.
RGBC PRAYER WARRIOR TEAM
Do you consider yourself a prayer warrior? Do you enjoy praying for others' needs? We will be launching a new team of individuals who will be praying for the needs of our congregation. If you would like to be part of this team and truly commit to pray for the needs that are sent, please contact the Church office. All prayer requests will be emailed to each Prayer Warrior Team Member, so please include the email that you would want those requests sent to. The Prayer Team will each pray individually so there aren't any meetings to attend! Prayerfully consider joining this team to support our congregation through prayer.

5 Great Reasons to memorize Scripture from Don Whitney's Book: "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life"
1. Memorization Supplies Spiritual Power “When Scripture is stored in your mind, it is available for the Holy Spirit to bring to your attention when you need it most.” 2. Memorization Strengthens Your Faith. “Memorization strengthens your faith because it repeatedly reinforces the truth, often just when you need to hear it again.” 3. Memorization Prepares Us for Witnessing and Counseling. “Recently, while I was talking to a man about Jesus, he said something that brought to mind a verse I had memorized. I quoted that verse, and it was the turning point in a conversation that resulted in him professing faith in Christ. I often experience something similar in counseling conversations. But until the verses are hidden in the heart, they aren’t available to use with the mouth.” 4. Memorization Provides a Means of God’s Guidance. “Just as the Holy Spirit retrieves scriptural truth from our memory banks for use in counseling others, so also will He bring it to our minds in providing timely guidance for ourselves.” 5. Memorization Stimulates Meditation. “One of the most amazing benefits of memorizing Scripture is that it provides fuel for meditation. When you have memorized a verse of Scripture, you can meditate on it anywhere at any time during the day or night.”
The verse to be memorized for this week:
"I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me."
