RCA Future

Following Jesus, Serving Others, and Sharing God's Love

This page is set up as a resource for our discerning our future in the RCA. If you’re on this page, it means you’ve read the recently letter to the congregation and/or you’ve been participating in the classes we’ve had after worship. Through the months of January and February Branson led a seven week class on the RCA, reformed distinctive, and some of the presenting issues in the denomination. The chief issue is of course how we view the authority of Scripture.

Below you will find the handouts for that seven week class. In the future, we hope to add a FAQ sheet, and other resources to help us in our discernment. If you have question, please email Pastor Eric and he will try to respond as soon as possible.
