We provide social opportunities throughout the year for fellowship and hospitality activities that promote a sense of community and friendship among church members, growing together in faith.
RRPC Book Club - 2013 Schedule and Selections
Sunday Fellowship After Worship
We gather for fellowship and food every Sunday after worship. Members and households rotate being hosts and providing the refreshments. The rest of us enjoy milling about, eating, chatting, and getting to meet our visitors.
Our generous weekly hosts supply the refreshments; however, there are baskets on the food tables for a free will offering to help defray the cost of supplies.

Potluck Meals After Worship
We love to eat! And we have lots of good cooks! On many occasions throughout the year, we gather for potluck meals in our fellowship hall. In the past they have been associated with Pentecost Sunday, mission fundraising, and various programs.
Special Occasion Meals
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, our youth host an Early Bird Thanksgiving Dinner. It is always delicious, especially served by our smiling young people. Members of the congregation prepare and serve an Easter brunch.

Our church has a very active youth program, and our youth and their friends meet every Sunday evening at the church at 5:00-6:30 for dinner, a program, and to plan their events and service.

They also provide fellowship events for the congregation and friends such as our annual Community Halloween Carnival and Early Bird Thanksgiving Dinners.
