Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Christian Commons Project is designed to carry out the mandate to the Church given by Jesus Christ in the Gospel According to Saint John the Evangelist, Chapter 21, Verses 14 through 17, to feed the people.
The main phone number above is a home phone. We now have outgoing long distance to the US and Canada. Please help to bring forth the Christian Commons for the benefit of all. Thank you.
We have no Church land or buildings yet. We need cyber volunteers to gain members & donations. Join now on causes.com http://www.causes.com/causes/99753?m=e5767d02&recruiter_id=13875729. Recruit others online for this 501(c)(3).
The RLCC first published its Articles of Association March 2007. The Church and Christian Commons Project (CCP) was licensed by the State of Washington August 2008. The RLCC was recognized as a 501(c)(3) by PayPal Compliance and GuideStar August 2008.
The RLCC is a Peace Church, believing in total pacifism (harmlessness; no forcing others against their wills). We believe in the political economy (giving and sharing; holding all things as community property) taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ and his earliest disciples.
The purpose of the CCP is to bring forth fruits worthy of repentance.
House, clothe, nurture, visit, encourage, help, produce a surplus to feed
Land and Building Fund to obtain arable land and sustainably and environmentally to develop farming communities (membership community property) primarily to feed the lambs and sheep of Christ
Communities will work to provide clean water, sanitation, food (growing and drives), clothes (making and drives), housing (restoring and new construction), sustainable energy, and the like.
We condone only unselfish uses of science and technology; however, we qualify that God has all power over science and technology.
No limitations; whatever funding will allow
We are new as of August 2008. We are appealing for membership.
The sick, the lonely, widows and widowers, orphans, the homeless, the oppressed, refugees, slaves, the unemployed, the disabled, and the imprisoned, and the like, throughout the world;
General Population; US & International; Poor, Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent Homeless; Unemployed, Underemployed, and Dislocated
Our accomplishments have been in our start-up phase. We are still ground floor as of the date of this entry.
Start social networking causes/groups on Internet
Become donor-transaction-processor and charity-rating compliant
Begin membership/website author/contributor drive
We believe in the Social Gospel outside secular government. We are in the world but separate to be restored and to commune with God. We go back into the world to find and help lost souls.
The needy need the means. Traditional charity avoids giving to the needy the means (collective ownership) to bring forth. The CCP of the RLCC will be more independent of economic downturns.
Serving our brothers and sisters is our calling.
We are too new to have program statistics to share.
Our plan is to measure our progress and share openly, not to boast but to spread the Good News, be a shining example, that unselfish love in action (spirit of oneness in service and friendship) works.
We will share membership statistics and community/financial information while protecting the anonymity of donors who give in secret, per Jesus Christ.
President Usher's Visions Statement and Mini-biography:
Vision for the organization:
We must bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. The giving and sharing economy is the right system for running the whole household of Heaven and Earth.

As of this writing, the Board pays out of personal earnings all expenses of the CCP and RLCC. Neither the Executives nor Board takes any compensation from the RLCC or CCP. 100% of donations will be going into the Land and Building Fund of the CCP until overhead burden becomes too great for Board members to fund from personal, outside earnings.
Our budget will be Churchwide. We'll strive for a 5-Year Comparative (Budgeted-to-Actual) General Ledger with all the appropriate Financial Ratios. We'll stick with General Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
When we have sufficient funds to justify the added expense, we will share our audited financials (prepared and certified by a Certified Public Accountant).
