A Letter to RLC, All

A Letter To RLC>>>

Hello RLC!
What an amazing weekend!
It’s always a job celebrating our Great God with you.
Here are a few things I wanted to share with you as we head into the first of August:

1. Honorology. Part 3- “How Do We Honor”. This week was the conclusion of our latest series which was all about Honor. Honor is one of my favorite topics because I truly believe almost nothing can add more value to your life than by surrounding yourself with a culture of honor. Here are a few of the main takeaway’s:
-We don’t honor others because they deserve it but because of how God views them.
-Showing honor doesn’t mean we agree.
-The more you value something the more you can value from it.

Let’s be known as a church who honors others.

Here are the two messages from this series:
PART 1: Where is the Honor
PART 2: Who Do We Honor

2. RLC | FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT. Last night’s Movie Night was amazing! Thanks so much to everyone who came and enjoyed the food, fun, and the movie.
If you enjoyed last night, you’ll love being a part of the RLC Family Life Group this coming fall. Watch for the LifeGroup list coming up later this Fall for your chance to sign up.

3. DISCOVER | RLC. <–Is coming around again this coming Sunday night. It’s the best way to get the 411 on all things RLC. For more information, click here.

4. 21 Days of Prayer. Beginning August 4th through 24th RLC will embark on 21 days of Prayer. I’ll be blogging more about it this week but for now, visit here for more details.

5. Prayer Time. Coming soon to RLC. In the month of August, many new things are going to be coming our way that I’m so excited about. One of these is an opportunity to be a part of the RLC Prayer LifeGroup which will happen every Saturday at 9am to 10am. During this time we will be meeting together to pray for our church and the next day as we interceed for those far from God in our families, our city, our state, and our country. More info on this coming very soon.

6. LifeGroup Leader Training. Ever thought about leading a lifegroup? Want to hear more about our lifegroup system and how you can be a part of it? If that’s you then join us August 11th at 6pm. This time together will show you the blueprint for how you can get more involved in the RLC LifeGroup Community. It’s going to be an amazing even led by our LifeGroup Team Leader Jamey O’Connor.

That’s all for this week. Hope you have a great week and I can’t wait to see you again this coming weekend.

Why Life Groups? They Help Grow My Relationships


They help me grow my relationships.

Hebrews 6:1-3 NLT

So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God. You don’t need further instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And so, God willing, we will move forward to further understanding.

1. Grow my relationships with others. Life is so much better together. Psalms says, “Oh how good and how pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity.” However most of us don’t experience a lot of unity. When we get to know each other and build relationships we slowly earn ‘buy-in’ into each others lives. Our opinions carry more weight because we have time invested. We slowly build trust. These are the people who can truly become life-changers. They can speak into our lives with weight and clarity because we’ve both taken the time to get to know each other and understand our complex life situations.

2. Grow my relationship with myself. There’s an old phrase which simply says, “Know Thyself”. Most of us have no idea who we really are. Mainly because we all have blind spots. There are certain things about myself I either cannot see or choose not to see. Either way, they are there whether I like it or not. Life Groups are a place where someone else who has ‘buy-in’ can show me these blind spots. Maybe I have untapped potential in a my life but have never noticed it. Someone else can point it out. Maybe I have a anger problem but don’t really want to address it. Someone else who I trust may be able to talk to me where my wife or kids wouldn’t dare.

3. Grow my relationship with God. The best way to get to know God is in the context of a group.  Life Groups should never take the place of your personal daily devotion time. However, in a group you can study out the Word of God and discuss what you find. You can relate a spiritual understand and apply it to real life situations. You can even request godly wisdom from others around you. When you are around other people who are pursuing God, your going to move farther.


Life groups help me grow in my relationships.
