This coming Sunday is a big one for us at Restoration City as 42 people become official members of the church.  This is so much more than a formality – this is a group of people who are taking responsibility for RCC’s doctrine, leadership and spiritual vitality.  It’s also a chance for the members of the church to affirm our commitments to one another.  That’s the heart of it; we aren’t committing to an institution, we’re committing to one another.

I want to share the RCC Membership Covenant here for two reasons.  One, if you are looking for a church that makes this kind of commitment to one another, we would love to have you come visit.  Two, I would love it if you would pray for the new members of RCC.  Ask God to give us the grace we need to fulfill these commitments.
