Summer Hangs

Summer Hangs

For our last Summer Hangs this summer, we are having a combined Middle & High School event.  This Wednesday August 8th Summer Hangs will be at the Garrett’s House (14353 Radcliffe Rd, Chardon, OH 44024), there will be swimming, food, and more!  If you would like to swim please bring a one piece bathing suit, and a towel.  The event will go from right after church until 10pm.  Please provide your own transportation to and from the event.  Hope to see you there!


Back To School Bash Aug. 4th


On August 4th the Salvation Army in Painesville is putting on their annual Back to School Bash.  They give away clothes, hair cuts, groceries and more at Harvey High School, and they give away school supplies at their Salvation Army location on Pearl Street.  We have the awesome opportunity to partner with them in serving the people of Painesville.  THIS SATURDAY we will be taking 10 RSM students over to the Salvation Army to help them pass out school supplies.  If you want your student to participate in this service opportunity then they will need to grab a permission form at the welcome center this Wednesday, you will need to fill it out, and return to Pastor James.  Since we can only take 10 students, we will take the first 10 to turn in permission forms.  We will be meeting here at PAG at 12pm on August 4th, and then take one church van over to Salvation Army.  You then will be able to pick your students up after the event at 4pm at PAG.

Car Wash

Car Wash

This Saturday from 12-4pm RSM is having a car wash here at the church to raise money for Speed-The-Light.  Speed-The-Light is a missions organization designed to provide vehicles to our missionaries around the world so that they will have the necessary transportation they need to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have not yet heard!  So on Saturday we will be washing cars so that missionaries can have cars.  If your student would like to help out with this car wash then they can meet us here at 12noon.  Please make sure they eat lunch before arriving as lunch will not be provided.  It is not necessary, but will be helpful if students could bring one old towel they could use to dry the vehicles (all other materials will be provided).  If you have a car you can also support Speed-The-Light by getting your car washed and giving a donation.  We can’t wait!

Reach Night/Summer Hangs Sr.

Reach Night : Summer Hangs Sr.

This Wednesday night we are combining Reach Night with Summer Hangs Sr.!  Reach Night services are special evangelistic services where we encourage students to invite their friends who do not know Jesus to RSM because we will be focusing our service on reaching the unreached!  If you have a student going into 9-12 grade then after this special service they are invited to join us over at Round 1 (7850 Mentor Ave Suite 200A Mentor, OH 44060; At the Great Lakes Mall) till 10pm.  They must provide their own transportation to and from this event, and we estimate they will need $20 while they are there.

Summer Hangs Middle

Our next Summer Hangs is coming up this Wednesday (7/18) at Scores Fun Center (65 Normandy Dr. Painesville OH 44060).  If you have a student going into grades 6-8 then you are going to want to make sure that they are apart of this great event!  After RSM on Wednesday night we will be meeting over at Scores Fun Center for some bowling and laser tag!  Wednesday nights are dollar nights at Scores so your student will be able to do 1 round of laser tag, and 2 games of bowling for $5!  You will need to provide transportation to and from Scores.  We will be meeting at Scores at 8:45pm and will finish at 10pm.  Hope to see you there!
