2021 Annual Congregation Meeting
The Annual Congregational Meeting is coming up on Sunday, February 14, following worship. This will be a hybrid in-person and Zoom event, so please make arrangements to participate. We held a Budget Meeting after worship on Sunday, January 31, to review proposed budget and address questions and concerns (you can view that meeting on RLC Live!). Similarly, we held a meeting after worship Sunday, February 7, to discuss the potential sale of the Berg House (you can also view that meeting on RLC Live!).

Video Annual Reports
This year we have recorded video reports and posted them above so that you can review the material in whatever format is easiest, and so that we can connect faces with people you might not have seen all year. Please check them out before the annual meeting in order for us to use the meeting time efficiently. You are invited to submit specific questions and comments ahead of time, so that responses can be shared with the whole congregation.
