~~Sunday May 3 at noon, RELC will have a potluck followed by an engaging and vital training session entitles Bridges Our Of Poverty. Pastor Sally Padgett from First English Lutheran Church in Columbus will lead the discussion of best practices, ideas and strategies we can use to help people move our of poverty and build sustainability. This session will be 2-3 hours n time, but time well spent.

With current outreach programs we have at RELC, we are actively engaged with those in need almost daily. This training is imperative in our assistance to those in need. And what a perfect training to engage as our youth group ready themselves for an upcoming mission trip.

No cost to attend and more to follow on the potluck directions. Please RSVP by April 26. Email: office@relc.org or contact Jon Meister.

RELC has partnered with First English Lutheran Church to meet the needs right here in Columbus.


We prepare and serve breakfast on the 2nd Sunday each month to those in need in their neighborhood. Come and help us with this hands-on ministry, sharing Christ's love and nourishment to the community. Contact the church office to volunteer for the Sunday breakfast.
