Mission News

FOOD, FUN & SINGING all for 3 great causes. Please save Sunday, March 18 after worship for our annual Scholarship Potluck combined again this year with a Spring Hymn Fest.

We have been supporting Mexican Scholars since 2005. Imagine only being able to go to school for free through 6th grade. That’s the way it is in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Through this fund we have been able to help provide scholarships for deserving students to continue their education. 

This potluck also sponsors a Seminary student at our partner church, the Caibarien Presbyterian-Reformed Church of Caibarien, Cuba at the Matanzas Seminary. 

You have witnessed our own active group of youth raising money for Scholarships of GRACE. The goal is to fund $500 scholarships to any accredited college or trade school for youth who have been active in the life of RRPC while in high school. This includes church attendance, youth group participation, involvement in worship and music, assisting with Sunday School or VBS, participating in Mission projects as well as involvement in care giving to family or community.

The FOOD  at this potluck is always wonderful even including some great Mexican and Cuban dishes. Please plan to bring a favorite dish and enjoy the music and fellowship while helping sponsor one or more of these three great programs.

Our local missions include:

  • Storehouse West – food bank in Rio Rancho, also clothing for children
  • Colinas del Norte Elementary School – Food Pantry and Clothing Closet
  • Dignity Fund for homeless teens in Rio Rancho
  • Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico
  • Outreach to refugees who have settled in Rio Rancho

  • Scholarships for students in our congregation
  • Local veterans
