There are lots of ways to get involved with children’s ministry this fall! Do you love kids and want to be part of their faith journey but are intimidated by teaching a whole class? No fear, there are still ways you can help! One new way is being a buddy to offer extra friendship, support, and sense of belonging. See details below, in the hall outside the elementary classroom Sunday, or reach out to Tiffany Acker. ... See MoreSee Less

Haven't been able to make it out to church very often this summer? You're in luck! This past Sunday, Pastor Peter summarized his entire sermon series on the Lord's Prayer - that's eleven sermons in one! And just for today, we'll also throw in a free performance of "Hallowed" by the Bakke family - what a deal!! 😂😂🙌😁 ... See MoreSee Less

This link takes us to select dates in July and August. I think those are last year's dates.

Thank you, Bakke family for a beautiful reflection on the Lord’s Prayer as we finish up this sermon series! ... See MoreSee Less

Important announcement from the RAC Board:
Over the past decade, Rainier Avenue Church has done community development and justice work with Urban Impact Seattle through a partnership called the Hub Model. The Hub Model is a great way to enable churches to do community development work by providing them with trained staff members called Hub Directors. But Urban Impact has been in a difficult financial situation over the past six months, and was forced to make several significant cuts in March, including laying off our Hub Director, Gar Nishioka. After ongoing conversations between the Staff and Board of RAC, as well as leaders of Urban Impact, the Board of RAC has decided to graduate from the UI Hub Model. That way, Urban Impact can be free to use their resources to equip other churches, while RAC uses our own resources to pursue our vision of community development.

While this is a significant transition, it is in many ways a celebration: a celebration of the Hub Model, and all that we have accomplished as partners. Even though we will not be participating in the Hub Model any longer, this is not the end of our relationship with UI - we graduate on the best of terms, and will continue to support and partner together in the future!

For more details, check out this FAQ (www.rainieravenuechurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/UI-Graduation-FAQ.pdf), which addresses some of the questions you may have. Please join us as we celebrate our graduation during our Sunday service on August 18, and be sure to attend our annual ReUNION meeting on Sunday, September 22, where we'll unveil our brand new plan for community development work at RAC!

Thankful for how God has used RAC's partnership with UI, and looking forward to the next chapter--praying for double the impact!

I'm saddened only because this connection through the hub model has changed my life in so many ways... but I appreciate the positive outlook both organizations have here.

Good communication!

Thanks for letting us know. Still interested in helping out with community development at RAC!

There are many different roles from lead teacher and small group leader to being a greeter or buddy. I’d love to talk more if you’re at all interested. We are also looking for more youth leaders (grades 6 and up).

Thanks to everyone who came out to this year's retreat! What a blessing to be together building community! Thank you Cascades Camp & Conference Center for hosting us! Looking forward to next year's men's/women's retreats -- stay tuned for ways to get involved in planning... ... See MoreSee Less

What an awesome time! Whoever picked this song should be in charge of music choices from here on out. 🐐 😂

Love the photo finish for 3rd place!!!

I keep watching the video just for the last few seconds.

Awesome retreat, our family had a blast! (And kudos to whomever made the decision to use that fitting song for this video 😀)

Thank you for such a wonderful time!!

I am SO impressed with the courageous retreat members who submitted themselves to CARDBOARD watercraft. Looks like tons of fun.

I love it such a great time with my brothers,and sisters.

What a fun weekend! After missing the retreat for the past 2 years, we were so happy to be back!
