Part of what it means to be ‘the church’ is to simply be a community who enjoys life together. There are groups of women, men, crafters, thinkers, singles, hikers, activists, artists, and many others who get together to share their common interests, passions and friendships. There are also concerts, suppers, socials, teas, arts shows, lectures and movie nights to enjoy. Whatever it is you’re looking for, no doubt there are others who’d love to do it with you.
Joining a new community can be hard! We believe community is important and want to make it as easy as we can. Connect is a safe and fun way to meet people and learn about who RDLUC is and what we’re about. Throughout the year you’ll be invited to things like games-nights and nature walks, where you can meet other people and hear about our church community.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Spring Event ~ April 22, 2016
Everyone loves to eat but at GWCTD you don’t know where you’re eating or who you’re eating with! Join us for this wonderfully delicious and mysterious dinner where the fun lies in the fact that you get to break bread and spend an evening with friends you haven’t met yet. We’ll announce details in the spring.
