RCC Weekly Update 06/10/21
A Message from Pastor Jerry
Sister Mary Ann, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a Texaco station was just a block away, so she walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned. Since Sister Mary Ann was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car.
She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, Sister Mary Ann carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried the full bedpan back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two Baptists watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, “If it starts, I'm turning Catholic.”
Have a great week, see you Sunday at 10!
Hey Kids! Ms. Heather has an exciting Bible story planned for you this Sunday! Can't wait to see you! 😊
Hey kids, do you like Scavenger Hunts? Here is a really fun Redmond Ridge Scavenger Hunt just for you! Follow the clues below and see if you can find this very cool tree house, located right here on Redmond Ridge!
From the Community Center, where our church meets,
turn right onto Cedar Park Crescent street.
Go around a big curve … can you find a school?
It’s Rosa Parks! Now isn’t that cool!
You’ll come to a circle, for your car to go around,
Take a right at the circle for your next clue to be found.
You’re now traveling south on Redmond Ridge Drive NE
Can you find a "Trail X’ing” for both man and beast?
If you’re very lucky you might see a horse
crossing the road, at the "Trail X’ing” of course!
You’ll pass two roads on the left, but keep going.
You want the third road, around the turn, so start slowing.
Here you'll turn onto NE 80th street ...
you’re almost to the treehouse! What an adventurous feat!
Can you see the road stretching out long and straight?
Drive almost to the end, and on 255th a left-turn make.
Look closely for the very next road on the right …
turn here, on 85th, your prize is almost in sight!
Follow the road round, it becomes 258th.
Whoa! There's a big dip that you have to take!
Go down through the dip that’s shaped like a “U” …
just before you reach the bottom, the treehouse comes into view!
Look on your left! … far back in the trees!
Isn’t it the coolest treehouse you’ve ever seen!
Congratulations! You’re a winner! Hooray!
You conquered our Redmond Ridge Scavenger Hunt today! 😀
Hey kids ... Do you know anyone in the Bible who climbed a tree in order to see Jesus? Do you think Jesus used to climb trees for fun when he was a little kid? Do you think Jesus and his carpenter dad, Joseph, ever built a treehouse together? It would be fun to learn about Jesus up in a treehouse like this one! 😊
