Our Community Missions
Our mission begins where we live and in the community where our building is located. God calls us to live lives that commend the Gospel and to explain the Gospel, and that starts nearby.
RMPC hosts a community garden on its property. Community Gardens of Tucson provided a fence, shed, tools, and watering lines to make this a possibility. The garden contains 30 20'X3' plots for members of the local community to lease. The cost of leasing a plot is $18/month and each plot is automatically watered each day. The garden hosts a meeting for the gardeners on the first Saturday of each month. Master gardeners present gardening tips and insights and gardening issues are discussed. The coordinator of the garden is Shelley Kruis and those interested in leasing a garden plot can contact her at email@example.com.
We have developed a good relationship with the TVUSD administrative staff. Our Director of Operations, Karl Bosworth, and one of our leading women, Janie Craig, participate on their Faith-based Collaboration Committee. We support their work of educating children in our area and want to be of help in this endeavor. To that end, we have chosen to partner with Emily Gray Junior High School to help them meet their objectives.
As partners with Emily Gray, we have a growing relationship with their Principal, Elizabeth Egan, and their staff. We regularly provide breakfast for their staff meetings one Friday per month. During Make a Difference Day, we painted several classrooms and planted some shrubs and trees for their landscaping. We love Emily Gray Junior High and want to help them meet their educational goals for our children.
