The vision of the Community Ministry is to make Christ known to the world around us by demonstrating his love and compassion, starting in our own community.
Community Service Initiative (CSI)
CSI has built up a consistent relationship with several local nursing homes. Its mission is to help RCCC members to “form a Habit of Helping others in order to bring them Hope.” CSI embodies the gospel words and deeds and extends God’s mercy to the disadvantaged.
RCCC’s community garden mission is to provide a place where members of our community can work together to build and maintain a productive vegetable garden and offer its harvest to benefit and feed local families in need. Vegetables from the garden are donated directly to the Franklin Food Bank.
Community Leaf Raking
Every year members of the RCCC community volunteer for the Somerset County’s annual Fall Leaf Clean-Up program. This community service helps an elderly or disabled person get his or her yard ready for the winter months. It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ in a very tangible way.
