All Saints Day – November 1st

RUMC has a tradition of remembering the saints that have gone on ahead of us in the past year on All Saints Day.

We will remember specifically those members who have passed in the last year and also give you the opportunity to speak the names of loved ones as a way of recognizing the gift of that person’s life.  A wonderful way to connect with God as we come face to face with death – thanking God for the life we have left to live.  The message on his day will be titled “An Unusual Grief” and will come from 1 Thes. 4:13

Recovery @ Ringgold 2nd Anniversary

Thursday, October 29th – Mark Beebee will be here LIVE rather than by video feed to deliver the message next Thursday. There will also be a special dinner starting at 6 PM. This would be a great time to come & see what God is doing at Recovery @ Ringgold. Worship starts at 7 PM.

Fall Retreat

We have a total of 16 going with us to the JUMP Fall Retreat! This is a good number for us this year, and I am excited! Remember that the balance of $85 is due by Nov 4. Also, we will have a Parent and Youth Meeting for the Fall Retreat on Nov 1 @ 8p (MANDATORY).

Prayer Walk

The youth will be participating with the church in a community Prayer Walk on October 28 @ 6:30p. We will gather in the youth room at 6:30p and talk about how to do a prayer walk. We will then split into groups and go out into the community with adult leaders to pray for specific things in our community. Please dress accordingly! This time could be a great spiritual opportunity for growth, bonding, and community outreach!

Mission Dinner

On November 17, the Nicaragua Mission Team will be hosting a dinner and auction in the gym. We need a team youth to be servers for this mission dinner. The youth would dress nice for the event and wait on tables while people are eating. This is an excellent way for youth to volunteer and participate in an amazing event that will raise money for an international mission. Message/reply if your student is interested.

A/V Volunteers

Our A/V Tech Team for the Sunday Night Youth Gathering time has an opportunity for middle and high school students to learn how to operate the sound board and computer during the Youth Gathering times each week. Each Sunday afternoon, during the youth praise band practice, which begins at 4:00p, youth who are interested in being on the Youth A/V Tech Team can learn and practice skills on the equipment in the MPR. Dale Duckett and Randy Sherrill will be supervising and overseeing the development of skills for this important support ministry team. Please email me back here if your son or daughter is interested. 

May God Bless You,
