Rocky Mountain Conference Annual Celebration 2017

June 8 – 11, 2017
All Ages Welcome

In 2014, we created our radical new vision. In 2015, we planted Mission Seeds around the Conference. In 2016, we Bloomed in the Desert. Now, in 2017, we are excited to use our momentum to Be the Church in the name of justice, fairness, and light.
You are invited to join us for Annual Celebration 2017, in Cheyenne, Wyoming! We will discuss, laugh, plan, and worship together as we create the Church of the Future. The event is hosted by the Platte Valley Association.

“What’s with Annual Celebration instead of Annual Meeting?”

The RMC’s Annual Event is one of a kind. Every year, we gather to experience real, joyful connections, in addition to conducting the business of our meeting. Is it technically a meeting? Absolutely. It’s got agendas and breakout rooms and everything. No one can take that away from it 🙂 But it does something that meetings don’t do: It brings us closer together as people of the RMC. Simply put, we have fun when we celebrate our Conference, its churches, its people, and its mission.
Our Annual Celebration will take place at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Like last year, full registration is $350, which covers lodging, all meals, programming, food and drink at our receptions, supplies, planning team meetings, and much more. If you wish to register and stay offsite, you may do so for $275. If you register offsite, you must make your own lodging accommodations.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

This group meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month in the mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 AM at Vista Grande Community Church.

The purpose and mission of this ministry is to combine the care and love of knitting into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort.

After more than 5 years in this ministry, we are still continuing to receive lots of yarn and have industrious women constructing more gifts with loving attention and fellowship.

The yarn is blessed before its knitted; the knitters, knotters, and fringers are blessed to fulfill this ministry; and the completed shawls are blessed before given away. We have knit over 100 prayer shawls and counting. These shawls are presented to congregation members, visitors, friends, family members, and hospital patients; wherever there is a need for added blessings in times of illness, recovery, loss and even joy.

You are invited to join our shawl ministry. The more knitters and knotters we have, the more blessings will be shared throughout the world. If you have any questions, please call Donna at the church office at 719-599-3057.
