Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Get There?
Please click here to go to our Maps page.

What Should I Wear?
At RRPC you will see a variety of styles of dress, from tie and jacket to jeans. We want everyone to be comfortable, so wear what is comfortable for you!

What is there for my kids?
On Sunday morning, there is a nursery available for infants to four year olds, if you want to use it. We welcome children of all ages into worship, and there is a special time for them with the pastor during worship. After that, they can go to Sunday School to engage in age appropriate activities related to what the adults are doing in worship.

What Is Worship Like?
Our worship is what some call blended- musically we draw from contemporary as well as traditional and while we do follow an order of worship, it is flexible so that we can be responsive to the seasons and themes of worship.

Can I receive communion?
All who seek to trust in Jesus Christ are welcome at the Lords Table. It doesnt matter what your faith tradition, if any, you are welcome here.

How often do we celebrate the Lord’s Supper? Here at RRPC we celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper monthly, and on special days, such as Christmas Eve and Maundy Thursday. Our deacons also extend communion to our homebound on a regular basis. We observe an open table so that all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are welcome to receive.

Are there study/social groups?
We have a wide variety of groups- Women’s Bible Study, Men’s Breakfast, Intercessory Prayer Group, Women Who Do Lunch, Youth Group, to name a few & all kinds of folk that gather to learn, share faith and make friends. These groups are open to anyone who would like to come. We also have short term studies and programs that are offered throughout the year.

Are there opportunities to serve the community? Absolutely! We have volunteers at Storehouse West, the VA, Torreon Mission- a number of local places. The Mission Committee (which meets the first Sunday at 11:15 am) would love to hear new ideas or help you find a way to use your gifts to serve our neighbors.

What happens after worship?
We really hope you will stay and have a cup of coffee or juice, and get better acquainted with us. We have this social time following each service as a way to stay connected with one another and make new connections.

How can I become a member?
We would certainly welcome you to join us in mission and ministry! If after worshiping with us for awhile, you are led to become part of RRPC, contact Pastor Kathy. New member classes are held a few of times a year. For information specific to our denomination, you may wish to consult the following link: pcusa.org

There is an Intercessory Prayer Chain who meets monthly for prayer and to update their prayer list. If you have a need for prayer, their names and contact information are on the prayer list insert in the bulletin. This group is always open for new members, if you would like to be a part of this ministry. Simply contact a member of the group.

Is there a newsletter?  Yes! It’s called The Witness and it comes out monthly. You will receive it by email if you sign up (here). If you want a hard copy you can find them on a table in the narthex along with hard copies of the calendar each month.
