Jul 04, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — After 18 long months, RCC is back to ‘normal’. All Bible classes have resumed, the assemblies are back to their normal times, and most importantly members and families are slowing returning.

Jun 13, 2021 — Elisha Freeman – All things considered, the Raleigh Church of Christ is fully open. Several have worked hard in classrooms, studying for lessons, planning for evangelism, benevolence, and other great works.

jan 17, 2021 –Elisha Freeman — We continue our sermon series in the Book of Revelation. In this lesson, we will cover Revelation 8-11.
