Dinners for 8
Whether you have been attending RPC for a long time or have recently started attending (and especially for students looking to connect with others in the church), Dinners for Eight groups provide the opportunity to spend time eating and sharing together in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. You will be placed in a group with seven other people (spouses will stay together) to have dinner and conversation with other members of the congregation one time, so the time commitment is very low. We will form groups so that you get to know others outside of your community group. You can find more details about the program here: tiny.cc/RPCD48INFO.
Please sign up no later than September 27 after church. Contact Thomas Godwin (email@example.com) with any questions. You can sign up here: tiny.cc/RPC2019DINNER
RUF Adopt-a-Student Program
Resurrection Presbyterian Church (RPC) is called by God to serve the whole Greater Lafayette area, with a special love and concern for the Purdue University community. While many Christian students view their college years as a time to simply attend a church and then move on, we would like to extend an invitation to do more than that. We would love students to become an integrated part of our church family. RPC is the sponsoring church for the Purdue University Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) campus ministry through the Presbyterian Church in America.
The goal of RUF Adopt-a-Student Program is to provide opportunities for students and families to get to know one another. It is a chance for students to see families living out the gospel as well as a starting point for deeper relationships and involvement in the life of the church.
This program will match students with families at RPC. Students do not need to attend RPC to participate in the program. This year is our inaugural year, and the program will launch at the beginning of the academic year in Fall 2019. We ask that students and families get together at least three times during the Fall semester and four times during the Spring semester (about once per month). Sunday nights are a particularly good night, as students do not have meals provided in University dining halls.We encourage families to ask students over to their homes for dinner, family outings or game nights, or other events within the Greater Lafayette community. You are certainly welcome to meet more than seven times over the next year, but meeting monthly would be a great start. The program is extremely flexible and can be modified to meet the needs and schedules of both students and families.
If you are interested in this program (both students and families), please follow the link below to sign up:
Women’s Ministry kick-off Event
Save the Date!
Sunday, August 25th at 5:45
All women are invited to attend our Women’s Ministry Kick-off Event this Sunday, August 25th, after the service in the small multi-purpose room at Faith West! Food will be provided as we spend time socializing and talking about the women’s ministry plans for the upcoming year. It may be a good idea for ladies to ride to church separately from their husbands/children if they wish to stay.
This Friday, let's let the kids play at the Purdue fountains from 10am-12pm! I have heard that the engineering fountain may be under construction, but the Loeb fountain near Beering Hall should be working. If you have a Purdue parking pass, the best place to park would be in the parking garage at University and Second Street. If you don't have a Purdue parking pass, I've heard that there are some free spots on First Street, Waldron, and Russell. Make sure to bring towels and sunscreen. I hope that some of you can make it!
The church leadership is asking that each regular attendee and member seek to find a prayer partner with whom they can:
Share insights they have found in the Word
Develop a close fellowship
Consider ways that they might serve specific needs of others
Please let one of the elders know if you would like assistance in developing this spiritual partnership.
This fall, RPC is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Lafayette and other churches in the greater Lafayette area on the construction of a new home. Our work days are scheduled for Saturday, September 14 and Saturday, September 28. We will need 10 volunteers for 9/14 and 8 volunteers for 9/28. We will also need one or two additional people to provide lunch for each day (reimbursement is available). No experience is necessary. For those volunteering to build, please plan on a full day of work (8:00am-4:30pm). Minimum age is 16.
This is a meaningful opportunity to serve our community and the future homeowners. It’s also a great way to kick off the upcoming year in which we will focus on "serving", and a chance to enjoy fellowship as we work alongside each other. Please contact Jason Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
