RHC 2013 Vision

Posted by Tanner Turley on

Daniel Burnham, one of America's great architects, once said: "Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized." Take that in. Little plans do not inspire. Little plans are probably not worth following. Conversely, a great and God-sized vision will motivate us to be a part of something immensely greater than ourselves.   

We believe God has given us a compelling vision for 2013. If you missed Sunday's sermon, please listen and join the rest of us in praying through how you can own the mission of RHC this year. What commitments will you make to see it realized? How does God want to work in your life this year? There is no limit to waht God might choose to do in our church this year! Let's love deeply, serve intentionally, give sacrificially, and spread rapidly.
