Rock Creek Bible Church wants to be a body of helpers. We’re made up of individuals who want to do what Christ would do, and that’s why we’re holding a clothing and food give away from 9 a.m. to noon on November 9 at the church building. We hope this will become a regular event that will allow us to serve those in our community who are in need, and also serve God in the process. What it Will Look Like: On November 9th we’ll have volunteers manning the food pantry and tables and racks filled with clothes. Anyone who shows up can take what they need, no questions asked.

In an effort to support our children’s church volunteers and further strengthen the program we provide, there will be a new annual schedule going forward.

If you would like to help the children’s ministry expand by offering your services, please contact Jonathan Runyan.
October's Third Thursday event, a ministry put on by the Women's Ministry at RCBC, will take place October 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Amy Kramer will be the speaker. Amy is a former analyst with the Governor's Grants Program where she worked with a team that administered state and federal grants for Domestic Violence Centers and Child Advocacy Centers across Kansas. Amy will share her personal testimony and will discuss ways to better understand and respond to this important issue.
For the two hours preceding the October 23rd Joyagers gathering a nurse from the Jefferson County Health Department will be present to offer flu shots. Two vaccinations will be offered. The quadrivalent flu vaccine, which covers four flu strains and is available to everyone over six months of age, and a high dose vaccine for people over the age of 65. It’s perfect timing for the fall season that is fast upon us, and for those who are on Medicare there will be no charge. Shots will be offered from 10:00 to noon before the meal.
