Trunk or Treat!

Hey RVC fam,

So with our new building and having a great parking lot. Our small group has a desire to organize a trunk or treat this halloween (Oct 31, Wed) at our church. What in the world is a truck or treat? I'm glad you asked...

It's where we will be filling our parking lot with lots of cars, with decorated trunks and have kids come and walk through the parking lot (in an organized fashion, of course) and get candy, treats, toothbrushes (if you are one of those people...) and we are hoping to have a bonfire, hot choco, hot cider and music. Everyone is welcome to bring their family and have their kids participate! 

If you have a vehicle and want to decorate your vehicle in a fun fashion we would love to have you. It would be great to fill up the parking lot with interestingly creative car costumes... if you are like me you don't need to decorate your car, because it frightens the average person by its odd similarity to a hurse... but anyways if you want to be apart of it, please contact Phil S, Chelsea, Becky, or I (Jacob) to get invloved. 


Prayer opportunity: Vigil for Life

The Vigil for Life is an annual opportunity to pray for the babies in our community at risk of being killed by abortion and to pray for an end to the practice. In this vigil, folks from around Madison are signing up for one hour time slots at https://vigilforlife.org/. Prayer is done 24/7 at the Planned Parenthood location on Orin Rd for the next forty or so days until 11/3.

A few folks from RVC for Life have already signed up -- it's a great opportunity to get involved.

Also, the Vigil has a lot of Catholic folks in it, so it's an opportunity to make new friends and have discussions about things like justification by faith alone :)

Please reach out to me with any questions,

   Aaron (Decker)

Chronicles from El Salvador and update on Healing love Ministries

Dear Family in Christ,

We'll be doing a recap of our 6 year missionary service in El Salvador ministering in different orphanges. Little did we know that the Lord was using these 6 years to teach us His heart for the fatherless and some of the do's and dont's when ministering to them. The lessons learned, moved us to start  "Healing Love Ministries," whose goal is to provide them a loving Christian family enviroment. We will also be casting our vision, time-line and status on the progress of this project.

Date: Sunday October 14th

Time: 11:45a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Where: RVC's Basement

Mark your calendars and plan on joining us!

Erika Barlow
