Historical Tidbits
Dominic, founder of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), died 1221

Dominic was a Spanish priest who saw the wealth of the clergy as a stumbling block for the church, so he formed a movement, the Order of Preachers (commonly called Dominicans) devoted to itinerant preaching and living in poverty


Free Notary Services for Congregation Members

Brad Perkins (who has been a notary since the 1980s) finally got his Alaska Notary Public Commission.  He will meet you at the church or come to you.  Call 808-782-5795 or email

Home Communion

Here are are two different versions of a home communion service available to be lead by your head of household:

Holy Communion is never a spectator sport where only a few are privileged to partake.  Including Holy Communion in a virtual service with no instruction on how those viewer might partake leans heavily into a Roman Catholic understanding of the Eucharist, and even more poignantly, right now the Roman Catholic Church is asking their members to keep the fast from the Eucharist until we can gather again.

Alaska Prays

On June 17th, the ELCA commemorated the martyrdom of the Emanuel 9—the nine people shot and killed on June 17, 2015, during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.  The Alaska Synod took this opportunity to spend 24 hours in prayer – an opportunity to reflect and pray for our communities and nation.  RLC participated by taking two, one-hour periods.

Watch our one-hour vigil from 4:00 to 5:00 pm held on Wednesday, June 17th in the Sanctuary.

Watch Pastor Karen taking the 4:00 to 5:00 am shift on Thursday, June 18th.
