Ministries of Grace & Growth

 

Hungry for God?

Worship at 9:15 am means being surrounded by a truly caring community in which we pray with one another and see God’s amazing answers. Together we worship, listening closely to God’s word through sermons in which Scripture comes alive. Our worship incorporates the richest traditions and blends them with the fresh, new Breath of the Spirit.

Sunday morning Bible Study for adults takes place at 10:45 am in the RTM office suite in a conversational-style study in which all participants help each other explore and grow in God’s word

Youth and children's ministries are available at 11 am Sunday mornings within our multicultural partnership, where 100+ children and youth sing and praise God together.   

Wednesday morning adult Bible study and prayer
enables a small group of men and women to gather from 10:00 am - 11:45 am in the RTM office suite. We are immersed in Scripture, intelligent discussion, prayer and great fellowship in this weekly small group ministry.

Tuesday or Thursday evenings Bible Study with Prayer & Communion is a time of renewal that takes place from 7:30 – 9 pm at the home of Rev. Dr. Scott.  Together we unwind from the stress of the week, are nourished by scripture, prayer and Holy Communion and each week discover a new depth of friendship among those who seek to truly be the Body of Christ alongside one another.   Church members and members of the community both participate in this group.

ESL offers a wonderful opportunity to draw close to God by drawing close to others.  RTM members teach English to Portuguese-speaking, Korean-speaking and Spanish-speaking individuals through a program that combines conversation and Christian friendship.

Seasonal programs and opportunities are offered as together we grow in faith.     

 

 We All Need Friends...


As a multicultural church, with members who are Euro-American, African-American, Brazilian and Korean, joining together in prayer and fellowship is vital.  We have discovered the sheer joy of friendship across ethnic borders and our celebrations prove it!  Our Supper Club offers food from our various backgrounds. Together we go to museums, concerts and exhibits, learning from each other.  Our fellowship events include singles, widowed, married couples, young and old.  We all need new friends in our lives! 

If you are sick, if life's storms just don't seem to go away, if you need the kind of family that will actually bring you food when you need it, or drive you to an appointment, or stand by you in times of crisis, you will find it at RTM. On Sundays we lift up people in prayer and the rest of the week we seek to be God's hands and feet as our Lord answers those prayers. As we minister to each other, as we practice our faith, we discover the Presence of God abounding.


New members and visitors are welcome and embraced by RTM. Give us a call anytime, or just stop by. Our doors are always open. 

                  Outreach...and a word about our Multi-cultural, Multi-ethnic Ministries....

RTM has a history of being involved in  Habitat for Humanity, MUST Ministries & the Elizabeth Inn,  Presbyterian Village, and national and international mission partnerships.  We offer a thriving on-site Community Food Pantry. 

RTM is a featured congregation in a national network of churches seeking Christ-based solutions to our broken immigration system,  is in partnership with a Korean first and second generation congregation,  has been featured in a book about churches on the front lines of a changing world and has won awards for our multicultural ministries. We are a small church and feel as though all we are doing is sharing Christ's love, but those seeds of love, in God's hands, have sown amazing things. Scripture commands us to “welcome the alien.”  In the process, we discover that Christ has come in among us and made a home, changing our hearts, our minds, our very souls.
