Way to go, fitness challenge teams! Here is this week’s challenge movement... wall sits!!! Any workout this week that includes wall sits is worth double points.

Congratulations to Team Victory in the lead so far, RACeteers in second! See the comments for a photo of team scores for week 1 (average per person to correct for different size teams). Be sure to get your points in Friday for week 2! (And if you’re looking for a comeback strategy, getting your whole team together outside doing a workout that includes wall sits would be a great idea 😉🏃🏽⛹🏼🚴🏿)

Here’s the average points per team member for all points submitted so far for week 1! (You may notice some sabotage from Team Victory’s rivals changing their average from 100 to 10...) Thanks everyone for making an extra effort to connect with others and take care of the body God gave you!

Fitness challenge teams, include SQUATS in your workouts this week for double points! In case you'd like some inspiration, here's a recommended workout from the trainers at Rainier Health & Fitness:
3 rounds for time:
10 air squats,
10 push ups,
50 jumping jacks/100 jump ropes

...and also with snow this week, if you are shoveling/sweeping snow in your neighborhood for at least 30 min, that can count as an outdoor workout! 😉🥶💪🏽

I don’t understand what the challenge is. Does it need to be at RHF? Is it calories or hours or # classes?

What a bunch of happy squatters!!

By God's grace, 2019 was a blessed year of ministry for Rainier Avenue Church! At our Easter service, we had the privilege of baptizing new family members into the Body of Christ, and enjoyed our highest attendance ever as a church: 700 visitors! We held another summer All-Church Retreat, featuring our first ever milk carton boat race. We rearranged the rooms of our church to make more space for our rapidly growing children's ministry. We celebrated the incredible work of all the church staff, including the promotion of Heather Otieno to Director of our new Justice and Spirituality Ministry. We held not one, but TWO Justice and Spirituality Conversations featuring Marvin Charles of DADS and Lisa Sharon Harper of Freedom Road. And we continued to serve the displaced, both locally and globally, through our Compassion Ministry and the Naomi Cotton Friendship House. What a privilege to be used by God for His purposes, and His alone!

Please, help us to continue to be a Christ-light in our community by giving an end of the year donation. Your gift will be tax deductible, and goes a long way in allowing us to do the ministry that we are called to do. To be counted towards 2019, checks must be postmarked by today, or you can give online here: www.rainieravenuechurch.org/giving/

Thank you for your generosity!

When you tithe to the church, you are supporting a community that you care about. And your contributions allow us to do the ministry that we are called to do!

But tithing is far more than that. It is a reminder that everything that we have first came from God, and we are only returning it back to Him. It is a declaration to ourselves and to the world that God deserves our very best, our first fruits, not our leftovers. And it is a way that we draw a bright line between ourselves and the dangerous idolatry of materialism and wealth that so pervades our culture.

So don't forget to give your tithe before the end of the year! You can give this Sunday, or else visit this page to give online: rainieravenuechurch.org/giving/
