What’s First Wednesday All About?
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek
my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
We’re glad you asked! As a church body, it is so important that we are praying and seeking God and it is healthy, essential even, for believers to participate in this type of worship together. Contrary to what we’re so often taught in our individualistic culture, the church can only thrive as a unified community; we can’t do this whole Christianity thing alone.
For this reason, events like First Wednesday are so important for our church, and so exciting! Our relationships with God and with each other are strengthened as together, we give God time to move and speak to us. If you love the weekend services at RLC, we know you’ll love First Wednesday.
Here’s what to expect>>>
- We start this service off with an amazing time of worship with the RLC Band.
- After that I will give you a short, practical teaching from God’s Word.
- Finally, we go back into a time of worship. During this time we also celebrate the Lord’s Supper together, and there’s an opportunity for one on one prayer if you would like.
It’s all in a laid-back, more personal atmosphere. We know that on Wednesday evening you may be a little tired, so don’t worry, we keep the service limited to about an hour long. You’re welcome to bring your kids into the service with you, or there’s childcare available through first grade.
God is so good, and we’re expecting Him to do awesome things at First Wednesday, so come out and join us! Don’t be nervous about who you’ll know or how comfortable you’ll be with the whole event; prayer isn’t about anyone but God, and Christianity isn’t about being comfortable. And besides, when’s the last time you heard someone complain about spending an evening soaking in the presence of God?
We’ll see you there!
