shuttle transportation continues
Again this Sunday, we will have not ONE, but TWO comfortable, roomy shuttle buses available to transport you to and from church. No more searching for a parking space! Our shuttles will run from 9 am-10 am beginning at the Alpine Bakery parking lot, 12315 Crabapple Road, Alpharetta- a mere .8 mile from RC. The shuttles will drop you off and conveniently pick you up after church right at the front doors of Building 100. After the morning service, the last shuttle returns to Alpine Bakery at 12:15 pm. We are putting in a lot of effort to make this a smooth and easy experience for you- we will even have water and doughnuts available on the shuttle for you on the way to church. We don’t recommend families with children or those who need special assistance ride the shuttles. But for those of you who would like to help us create some space in our parking lot for others, please meet us in the Alpine Bakery parking lot. We will have greeters, hosts, and our drivers there to meet you- and no waiting!

Mike Atkins (Sanctuary): Pastor Mike Atkins concludeS his series “Experiencing The Victory of Christ: A Series on Spiritual Freedom” this Wednesday, May 19. Pastor Mike and Patty provide pastoral care to our very own Pastor Chuck and Candace. PC calls Pastor Mike one of the greatest Bible teachers you will ever hear. He is an author, veteran pastor, and popular conference speaker who has ministered all over the world.
We continue to take a deep dive into the issue of freedom from spiritual strongholds laying a foundation to understand how freedom is realized as a result of union with the LIFE of Christ. Without this foundation, many experience freedom temporarily losing it quickly due to a lack of understanding of how to maintain it.
We are expecting big crowds for this series as Pastor Mike is a well-known teacher in the Atlanta area. Please do your friends a favor and give them an invite to join us!
