Quench is RLC’s contemporary, non-denominational worship experience. Quench offers a weekly message from our campus Chaplain, Rev. Mara Bailey, as well as from Simpson alumni and guest preachers on occasion. This service invites students to come together as a community to share and experience what God is speaking in their lives and those around them. Come worship with us as we explore what it means to live out Christian faith as students.
