Meal Train
Meal Train is the online tool we’re using when someone in the RRCC church body is in need of assistance with meals for a short time. When meals are needed we send out ‘invitations’ via email, through Meal Train, to people who may want to help with providing a meal. If you’d like to receive the Meal Train emails please contact the church office.
