Our first RCAC Family time will be this Saturday Oct 21 from 9:00 to 12:00 at RCAC.  RCAC Family Time will be a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and connecting with each other.  It will also give our children an opportunity to play with each other outside of the busy Sunday schedule & classroom setting.   Equally important, this will give us an opportunity to serve alongside with our older children and demonstrate to our young ones the meaning of servant hood.

We are participating in cleaning activities from 9-11 and then fun activities and maybe eating from 11-12.  The more people we have, the more time we will have for fun!  Even if your child might not be old enough to help, come hang out anyway.

Update of the Building Project: We submitted the plan to JCSD and are waiting for approval. We are working on the application on mortgage. We also work on re-casting vision on how to use the building. We will communicate it to the Church later.

Retreat is next week!  Oct 27 to Oct 29.  Please take the packing list from Shelton. If you need ride, contact Shelton too.

The Nominating committee nominates:
Jenny Truong as secretary
