I have been a member of RCC for  17 years. My wife, Luanne and I will celebrate 39 years of marriage in January 2017. We have two adult children; Heather is married to Brian and they are the parents of three daughters, Hadley, Brooke, and Kamdyn; Stuart is married to Jackie and they have two sons, Brody and Caleb, and a little girl, Olivia. I love bicycling and we both love the role  of grandparents.

I grew up in the Methodist Church, but became a member of RCC when we moved to Rochester in 1991.    My wife, Glenda, and I have three grown sons, Drew, Chuck & Kurt,  two granddaughters, Charlotte & June and one grandson, Jacob. I   am retired? and enjoy spending time with family and riding bikes.

I am currently employed at Two Men And A Truck and serve at RCC as an Adult Bible class teacher. I enjoy coaching competitive girls softball, golf and mountain biking.

My wife, Carol and I started attending RCC after being married in April of 2001. We became members later that year. I have a 22 year old step daughter that is attending classes at UIS. I am employed by the "Illinois State Board of Education" as a computer programmer. At RCC, I enjoy helping with the Junior High Youth, the Internet\Social Media team and taking trips to our sister church in Haiti.

Our family began attending RCC on Easter Sunday in 2013. We came forward to become members later that year. My wife, Julie, and I have been married for 15 years. We have three children: Jack (14), Jane (12), and Kate (9). I serve as  the Executive Director of the Illinois Trucking Association.  Our family enjoys traveling and we are avid St. Louis Cardinals fans.





Bob Thomas

Melody and I have been part of      the RCC family for over 30 years now. We are blessed to have a daughter, son, daughter-in-law,    and two grandchildren. I am still employed with an electric utility organization. I have served on various RCC ministries over the years, and currently co-lead a Sunday morning Bible Study. RCC has been a huge influence on my Christian growth, and I hope to assist in guiding RCC to continue to be an influential church family and fulfill Christ's mission for His church.
