ADULT MINISTRIES
At RFMC, The Outpost we strive to help all believers to grow in their relationship with Christ, making it possible for them to become great “fruit bearers” for Him. We seek to prepare, strengthen, and encourage believers to live as ambassadors of Christ, and fulfill Paul’s plea to the Corinthians and all who have read his letters, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20)
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our traditional adult ministries have been canceled. Instead it has been decided for the time being to use this page as a resource  for the families in our church and community to build their relationships with each other, and God. Here you will links to parenting resources, encouraging videos, devotionals, links to family friendly entertainment, as well as announcements.

Special Covid-19 Announcement
As many of you may be aware, Beaver County is once again closing down indoor dining at bars and restaurants, as well as limiting gatherings to 25 or less. Currently, we are exempted from limits on attendance as long as we follow sanitizing, distancing, and mask protocols and the Supt. is not recommending that we move back to that so, we will continue on as we have been until different instructions are given. Please continue to pray for our country as events surrounding the pandemic continue to change.

One Prayer – Different Answers?

 
Janie had been rude and disobedient and refused to follow her mother’s instructions. Wanting her to learn the importance of being obedient, and the necessity of prayer, her mother sent her to her room asking her to talk with God and pray for His help. In a few moments, she returned to the kitchen, where her mother was preparing the evening meal.

“Mom,” she announced, “I prayed about my disobedience.”


“Good,” said her mother. “Did you ask God to help you to be kind and obedient?” 


“No, Mom, I didn’t,” she answered. “Instead, I asked Him to help you put up with me.”


Jesus said something important about obedience: “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me.” He also said, “If you love Me, you will keep my commands.” There is always a connection in Scripture between love and obedience.

 If we say that we love God, we will demonstrate that love by being obedient to Him and following His teachings. When we look at the life of Jesus, we see a relationship between a Father and His Son, founded on love and reflected in obedience. His life set the standard for us to follow.

It was the sinless and sacrificial life of Jesus that ultimately shows us what obedience to God requires. When we waver in our willingness to obey Christ, we must examine our commitment to Him and be willing and courageous to do what He asks us to do no matter what it costs us. 


Prayer:  Help us, Heavenly Father, in our struggle to be obedient to You. We know that self-centeredness often overwhelms us. Give us Your strength to persevere. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Scripture For Today: Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. John 14:21
