Our church opens its doors...

May 18, 2017

As you may have heard at church this past Sunday, the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is ready to recommend a candidate to become the next installed pastor of RPC. At the request of the PNC, a single worship service will be held on Sunday, June 4, at 10:00 a.m. where the pastoral candidate will preach followed by a congregational meeting at 11:15 a.m. where the PNC will recommend that the congregation approve the candidate and terms of call (compensation). We will also elect new officers (elders, deacons and Nominating Committee members). Please mark your calendars for this most important day in the life of RPC. (The candidate’s name is being kept confidential until June 4th).

June 4th serendipitously is Pentecost, what many call the birthday of the church. In Acts 2, the writer of Luke Acts gives an account of the first Pentecost:

            In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,

            And your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions,

            And you old men shall dream dreams.

            Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Acts 2:17, 21).  


My prayer for you, my dear people of Redmond Presbyterian Church, is that God’s power and marvelous gracious Spirit will be poured out upon you. You will dream great dreams. You will know ever more fully of the love of God and the grace of Jesus Christ.  Through you and your new pastor, the world will be blessed.


See you in church.


Faithfully yours,


Dr. Mark Smutny, Transitional Pastor

This program provides summer lunches for children who receive free and reduced lunch during the school year. When those lunches are not available during the summers, this program provides nutritious food for these students.
Kristen Muscott, of
Open Kitchen and Redmond United Methodist Church is one of the directors of the program. She will go over how the program works, how many children are served and what we can do to help.
