RCC exists to love God and our neighbors and to make disciples of Jesus Christ in Reedsburg, Sauk County, and the world.
Our Cell Groups are the key to the fulfillment of our purpose.
The true fruit of an apple tree is not an apple... it's another apple tree! The same is true for disciples of Christ. They are not complete until they too are making disciples of Christ. In our Care Groups we spend much time developing relationships and fostering openness and sharing. When we have this openness we can then "spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10.24)." We use the Christian relationships built in our cells to accomplish this.
Our Cell Groups also provide a relatively non-threatening place where unchurched people can see Christians supporting one another the way they should. They get to see Christians praying for each other (and crying for each other) when something goes wrong in their lives. They get to see a group of people having "clean" fun together. In short, they get to see Christian community, which is a necessity if we are going to reach the current generation of young adults.
As each cell grows it multiplies into two separate groups. This is necessary to keep the openness of a small group (10-12 people). Cells will grow and multiply. Other cells will be planted in other communities where we know people who we've introduced to Christ. As this happens large group worship times will be started in other communities, other states, and even other countries! And so, we fulfill our purpose to make disciples beyond our community, state and nation.
In our Cell Groups we have a time of worship where the group spends the first part of the cell meeting worshipping in God's presence Then through our worship our Care Groups collectively worship the creator of the universe in heartfelt worship.
