 Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

10:00am Worship with Sunday School

Welcome Back to Sunday School!

We'll start this year with fun activities focused on our theme of "Acts of Faith" (building on last year's theme of "People of Faith." 

We will continue learning about God's Great Loving Care for us and explore simple ways we can share God's love in "Acts of Faith".

We look forward to seeing you at Rockaway Reformed Church, the little church that "rocks". Come to our praise & worship service at 10 am, Sunday School will breakout midway in the service.


Look at how God gives (Matthew 20). All workers are paid equally. Those who had a lot of opportunity, and those who were mostly unemployed. The early workers complained at the unfairness. The Giver is appalled at their desire for "more."

Look at how God feeds (in Exodus 16). Everyone gets just enough, both the good and the bad, the deserving and the non-deserving, thank God. God's people prayed for food, then complained about the food they get. God sticks with them anyway.

While human systems consistently create "haves" and "have-nots," the Heavenly way is for all to have just enough. That has implications for current debates on homelessness, access to healthcare, wages, refugees, and on, and on.
