RCS Concert - January 18

On January 18th, the community was treated to a wonderful event at the Church. The event was presented by the RCS High School Harmonics chorus and the RCS High School Jazz Ensemble band. The chorus selections were led by Michelle McLoughlin, Director, and the Jazz Ensemble was led by Christopher Dobson, Director. Several members of both the Harmonics chorus and Jazz Ensemble have achieved the honor of being selected to the Tri-M Music Honor Society. Congratulations to them! 


FRCB was proud to host this event and have the opportunity to witness the talents of our local young students! Fellowship and treats were enjoyed by all afterwards to put a cap on a great evening!

Sunday Worship begins at 10:30 a.m.  Masks are optional within the church building.  If desired, you may attend in the privacy of your car parked in our parking lot.

If you would like to receive a box of weekly giving envelopes, please call the office at 518-767-2243.  Using these envelopes allows our treasurer to be able to credit your donations at the end of the year for tax purposes.


Online offerings may be made on-line via Tithe.ly and the Give button below. These donations will be deposited directly into the church bank account. You have the option to give to either the General or Renovation Fund. Both Tithe.ly and the church will record your donations.


Tithe.ly deducts a small fee per credit card transaction (2.65% plus $0.30). You have the option to cover these fees, if you wish. You may also choose to have Tithe.ly automatically donate for you weekly or monthly.


As always, thank you for your generosity.

Back in October, the Finance Committee reported the Renovation Fund year-to-date total was at $10,000. The call went out for a year-end push to hopefully finish the year strong to meet our goal of $20,000. Thanks to another incentive push from a Secret Santa, the generous giving of the members of FRCB, and friends of this congregation, we ended the 2023 Renovation Fund Drive with a grand total of $20,200!!


Applause…Applause……Clap……Clap……Clap


Once again, friends and members of FRCB have stepped up to meet the challenge to exceed our goal! Thanks to all for your extremely generous contributions throughout the year! Certainly another giant step closer to paying this loan off in early 2025!

 

We will continue with our can and bottle collection. Please remember - place cans and/or bottles in the large garbage bin in the fellowship hall near the crop walk pictures or take them to “cents for cans” in Ravena, located on the right just before the first traffic light in Ravena. Please tell them that they are for “The First Reformed Church of Bethlehem” and the donation will get credited to our account.
