Let’s get together! It is so important to maintain our Christian fellowship during the summer months. On July 12, the junior and senior high youth will be heading to Lake Michigan for a day on the beach.  This will include loads of “picnic” food (including s’mores!!) and a stop on the way home for ice cream. Please bring your own money to cover the cost of this special treat. We will be leaving RUMC at 2pm and we will return by 7pm.  Please RSVP by SUNDAY, July 9th, so we have enough food.
