Graduate Recognition

Sunday, May 19th

During the morning worship services


Many big THANK YOU'S belong to all the folks who work in the nursery. Thank you CINDY CORNETT for serving as the RBC nursery coordinator. You and all those who help you are a blessing to us all. You are an especially great blessing to the parents and grandparents of all those children you serve. If you would be willing to volunteer in the nursery every now and then, there would be a lot of children and parents that you would bless. Let Cindy know if you would be willing to help. Thank you. I am looking forward to hearing the special blessings God has in store this coming Sunday morning. KELLY and LAURA SAGER are the IMB missionaries to Rwanda, Africa. They are presently living in the RBC white missionary house. The Sagers, along with their six children, have already blessed us in the short time they have been among us. Kelly will be preaching both a.m. services this coming Sunday. Laura will be bringing the special music. I am looking forward to hearing what God has to say through them. We are thankful that JACK HOWARD made it back from his Gideon Bible Distribution mission trip. It was good to see him this past Sunday. The next Who We Are 101 will occur this Sunday morning following the second worship service. If you know of someone who would like to learn more about how RBC functions, this would be a great time to let them know about 101. There is a free meal for all who attend. This Sunday will also be our graduate recognition Sunday. It is always a special opportunity to recognize, honor, and pray for those who are passing a major milestone in their lives. If you have just graduated, or will graduate this summer, be sure and let the office know. Our Annie Armstrong Easter Offering has now received $10,487.60. We only lack $512.40 reaching our goal of $11,000. Let's go over the top next Sunday. This Sunday will probably be our last public emphasis made for this offering. Be sure and sign up for our Annual Fishing Trip to the coast. We leave on Thursday, June 13. We fish on Friday, the 14th, and usually get back home around 11:00 p.m. Please continue praying for the Search Committee as they seek God's person. By His grace, Stanley

Words from Wells...

"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." (Col. 3:12) Lots of things from this verse that we could talk about, but let's focus on one area: clothing ourselves. When I put on clothes, I look at the possibilities of what to wear, and then I decide what to put on. It is my choice. (For your information, Renae does not always agree with my choices!!) As we are God's people, we are told to clothe ourselves with several things. We can choose to do that, or we can choose to not do that. The issue is--we have to choose. Therefore, what are you going to choose to clothe yourself with? Not what shirt and pants are you going to wear. Will we choose compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience? Those things don't come naturally. We must choose to change from our natural ways and choose the supernatural ways! Music Notes: Thank you Worship Choir for your music Sunday morning. There is a joy in the journey when we focus our journey on God! Next Sunday evening, the Youth Choir will sing at least 2 songs and maybe three. You will want to make sure and be here to hear them. They have been doing a great job! Senior Adult Choir, thank you for your ministry to so many folks in our church and outside of our church. You are a blessing! We will take the summer off from choir and start up again in the fall. Now would be a great time to join the choir!! If God puts it on your heart to be a part of one of our choirs, please respond to him and come and sing with us! All that is needed is to come to rehearsals and be a part of a team that serves!

Ephesians 4:3-7 - Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit--just as you were called to one hope when you were called--one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. In this passage, and on through 4:16, Paul draws a vivid picture of the body of Christ, where Christ is the head. The picture shows a body that is completely one in Him! Even the uniqueness we each have, and the unique gifts the Lord provides us, are there to first build up the rest of the body as one and to mature and complete us in Christ, so that ultimately God is glorified through His body! Thank you for your continued prayers for our students and their families! Students are training and preparing now for the Summer mission trip to Omak, WA, and we are studying through Ephesians 4 as part of that training. For weekly devotion ideas for keeping Christ the center of our homes, see the youth webpage: For the glory of our King! Ron

Bridal Shower for

Cassie Leibold

BJ Olson but that the John 3:17 (HCSB) world

Saturday, May 18th at 3:00 p.m. in RBC Fellowship Hall

Cassie and Dan Hamilton are registered at Target and Macy's.

Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;" For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, might be saved through Him.

National Day of Prayer


Consider if God the Father had not taken the world as it was. What if instead of accepting, He was rejecting? John 3:16-17 would have sounded much different. "For God hated the sinful world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, since everyone rejected God they will perish and not have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might save the world, but that the world might be condemned through Him." Think of it, in order to save humanity God had to take the sinful world as it was (as it is). The world we live in is lost, broken, dying, sinful, and in darkness. We should not be surprised when painful circumstances come our way. And yet we are. We live in a fallen world and as a result, difficulties and hardships will come our way. Sometimes problems are the result of our own sinfulness, sometimes the result of other's sinfulness, and sometimes simply the result of living in a dying and decaying world (i.e. sin in general). When we refuse to accept that we live under these conditions it does not make the world less sinful. However, refusing to accept the world, your circumstances, will very likely make you more miserable and bitter. God has chosen acceptance as the vehicle of salvation. God accepts the sinful world as it is; more than simple acceptance, He loves the world. He provides salvation through His Son. Jesus had to accept the role and take on the sins of the world. In order to receive salvation we have to accept that we are sinful in need of saving. We then accept Jesus as our Lord and our Savior. Taking the sinful world as it is, admitting we are sinful, receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior are accomplished through acceptance. Next week "not as I would have it," which is a major reason why we have a hard time taking the world and circumstances as they are. I am praying for the good that God can bring about as you accept the difficulties of life. God Bless You ~BJ Olson 5

RBC Women's Ministry Fall Retreat 2013

A study of the Beatitudes

Thursday October 10 ­ Saturday October 12, 2013 Clearwater Lodge, Newport, WA

Details to come later.

Dear Church Family: I would like to thank you for all your prayers and well wishes over the past two months. Surgery went very well and I feel I am working on a reasonably quick recovery. I have no doubt that is not only a result of having an excellent doctor but in large measure to all the prayers lifted up for me. The current plan is to resume normal activities in a couple more weeks but I am having a hard time waiting. I am now praying for patience as much as healing. Again, Thank You All and God Bless!
