LOOKING FORWARD

Building today for Lives Tomorrow

God has blessed RCA Church with remarkable growth. Our regular weekend attendance reached an all time high of over 550 and has averaged over 450. For the past three years in a row, our Easter services have exceeded a thousand people in attendance. These numbers are significant to us because each number represents a person. A person that we have an opportunity to share the transformational love of Christ with. RCA is a church on the move!

However, more importantly than numbers, is the transformational change we’ve seen God do in the lives of individuals and families. Because of the commitment, dedication, and financial support of many, it has allowed RCA Church to continue to impact thousands of people in Ridgecrest, the surrounding areas and around the world. The time has come to look forward. We believe God is leading us to new levels of opportunity for ministry and outreach. Our vision is to have a campus and church facility that will meet the needs and demands of our continued growth.

Why  Build

Nearly every day, our church campus is buzzing with some ministry activity taking place. Not only are we desperately needing space in our auditorium and lobby during our two Sunday services, we’re also needing the space during the week. Each Wednesday our auditorium  and church campus is transformed from our regular Sunday set up into a youth and children’s environment. Nearly a hundred and fifty kids are pouring onto our church campus to be ministered to. Having a new auditorium will give us the opportunity to simultaneously minister to children, youth and adults, on our church campus.

The faithful and generous support of many who have called RCA Church home and the exponential growth we’ve experienced, has has positioned us to expand our reach. Our goal is to have a 500 seat auditorium, and hugely expanded lobby by August of 2019. Can you imagine the impact we’ll have in our community and around the world as our campus expands, allowing for greater growth? The new building will allow us  to equip, train and empower people to make a difference in their world!

11 + 12 =

RCA Church has been reaching out to Ridgecrest, the surrounding communities, and around the world for over four decades. Countless lives have been changed, hundreds of marriages restored, and thousands have received Christ as their Lord and Savior!

We now sit on the precipice of an incredible opportunity to expand our reach. With this expansion, we envision another important milestone to be crossed. From the early beginnings in Inyokern, to Panamint street in Ridgecrest, and now to our present campus, God has blessed us with tremendous men and women who have helped bring us to this point in our church’s history.

With God’s help, we have a tremendous opportunity to leave a lasting mark on individuals for generations to come. I hope you will not hesitate in being a part of this incredible opportunity that’s before us.

You  Can  Make  A  Huge  Impact

Choose a Giving Plan, See the Impact

HERE’S HOW

  • Pray and ask for God’s guidance as to what amount you and your family are willing to commit to
  • Reference the giving table to see how much impact you can make over two years
  • Both, monthly as well as one-time givers are needed

STARTING NOW IS POWERFUL

It’s important that once you commit to an amount you start your giving as soon as possible. The amount of contributions we receive, through individuals and families, will decrease the total loan amount. As a result, our loan amount will be less, our monthly mortgage payment will be less and we will save thousands in interest.
