ANNOUNCEMENTS

NOVEMBER 2017


CHRISTMAS BELL RINGERS: Sign up in the Oakmont site lounge area following both services or by contacting Rick Rosenberger at 412-996-0566. RCC is partnering with the Salvation Army again this Christmas season by providing bell ringers for two-hour shifts at the kettle just outside the Verona Giant Eagle. Sign-ups will continue until all time slots have been filled. This is a great opportunity for individuals and/or families to contribute to the needs of our neighbors. 


VERONA COMMUNITY MEAL: RCC is hosting the Verona Community Meal on Wednesday, November 29 from 4:00 - 6:30 PM at the Verona Methodist Church. For more information or to get involved, please contact Jodie Skanderson at j.skanderson@aol.com or 412-596-2493. 


MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY: Do you have a heart for kids with special needs? RCC is in the process of trying to better serve those with special needs and their families! We truly believe that God can change lives through this program, but of course, it requires extra hands on deck! If this is something you're passionate about or even just interested in hearing a bit more about, please contact Leesha Milliron at lmilliron.lm@gmail.com.
