Where Hope is Found - Where Faith Can Grow and Where Love Abounds
Webster's Dictionary defines the word "church" as, "A house consecrated to the worship of God among Christians." That is certainly true, but there is much more implied in the word "church" than simply a place to worship God. Raphine Christian Church wants to be your church and more! The church is not simply a building, Christians are the church, "the called out ones."
Raphine Christian Church offers hope in a world where hope seems to be in short supply today. It is not "pie-in-the-sky" hope, but genuine hope based upon the promises of God. RCC wants to share that hope with you.
Raphine Christian Church seeks to be a warm and loving place, where you can come out of the storm and into the presence of God and His children. RCC is a place where encouragement takes place, where we support each other and build each other up. We don't tear each up apart as the world so often does. We are a spiritual refueling station.
Please come as you are and join us this Sunday as we grow in our faith together and share in the mercies of God's Son, Jesus Christ.
SPRING MEANS NEW LIFE
Spring has finally come to the Shenandoah Valley and with the coming of spring we see all kinds of new life as the grass turns green, the flowers bloom and the trees once again regain their leaves. Spring without a doubt is a celebration of new life. And as Christians we take celebrating new life to a whole other dimension because it is through Jesus Christ that we have new life. And that is worth celebrating, not just in the spring, but in any season.
Jesus said in John 5:24, “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.” To make this gift of life possible, Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead demonstrating in a powerful way the gift of eternal life.
We invite you to join us each and every Sunday as Raphine Christian Church celebrates our new life through Jesus Christ. We invite you to join with us in fellowship as together we explore the wonderful grace and mercy of God.
We hope to see you this Sunday!
