Following up on the announcement this past Sunday, some bittersweet news to share... Pastor Jonathan Pierre-Puckett, who has been our youth pastor since July of last year, has accepted a new role at Washington State University's Seattle campus as a personnel specialist. We are sad to see him go, but want to congratulate him on this new and exciting opportunity, and are grateful that he and Rhianna will be continuing to be a part of our RAC community!

Pastor Jonathan's last day on staff will be Sunday October 2nd, but he will be volunteering to help out with the youth until the end of October. We'll have time to pray for Pastor Jonathan on October 30th.

In the next few weeks, we will be holding meetings with youth volunteers and parents to create an interim plan, as well as sharing the job description to try to fill this position as quickly as we can. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Pastor Peter or to the RAC Board.

Pastor Jonathan, thank you for caring well for RAC youth over this past year, and we pray for God's continued leading in each of your next steps!

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month to everyone! Like we heard during the scripture reading this past Sunday, this is a great chance to honor and learn from our family in Christ who are shaped by Hispanic and Latin heritage. One space to learn is from panelists on this recorded webinar highlighting church leaders who are also part of the Christian Community Development Association that we're part of. Hopefully their perspectives will help you gain new insight into God's heart and calling for all of us as a church!We love seeing CCDA members share their lived experiences! Join this event and hear from CCDA members Alexia Salvatierra, Robert Chao Romero, & Lisa Treviño Cummins on the faith, innovation, and resilience of Hispanic congregations in America.
