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.
WINTER SON LIGHT
Winter is here and for some of us that means outdoor activities decrease. In fact, science tells that it is during the winter season that people become depressed partially because of the lack of sunlight and outdoor activity. Allow us to offer a solution. Join us at Raphine Christian Church. We cannot promise more sunlight, but we can promise that you will learn and grow closer to the Light of the World, Jesus.
I ask you to keep a couple of things in mind: First, God does not take the winter off, seeking a warmer place and leave the universe to run on its own accord. Second, the church does not close down for the winter unless the snow piles up. There is still the need for ministry. People go to the hospital, folks get married, and yes, some die and funerals are required. Through the winter months the Word of God is still proclaimed, and although we don’t like to mention it, bills still have to be paid and missions supported.
As King Solomon discovered, life that is not centered on God is meaningless and has no purpose. Only God can truly satisfy our thirsty souls. Hebrews 10:25 warns, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” We at Raphine Christian Church hope you will join us every Sunday this winter where the warmth of God’s love can be found as we worship Jesus Christ and celebrate His gift of eternal life to us.
Learn more about us and meet our dedicated staff members. We're looking forward to sharing with you the love of Christ....!
