Mission & Ministry Opportunities
Celebrating 10 Years – Rehobeth's card ministry to our troops in Afghanistan and Kuwait is 10 years old! Thanks to everyone who has supported our troops through this program. Make a commitment to write a card or two each week this year for our wounded troops in Afghanistan and active troops in Kuwait. Let the men and women in the military hospital in Afghanistan and military base in Kuwait know how much you appreciate their service. Indicate on the envelope what type of card is enclosed ("Get Well," "Thank You," or "Thinking of You"). Remember, to comply with military security requirements, do not include your return address. Place your cards in the red, white, and blue box located in the narthex. Thank you for supporting our troops!
" Christmas with Dignity" Store - The Gabriel's Heroes "Christmas with Dignity" store will be open on Saturday, December 12, from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Connor Recreation Center. This is an outreach to those families in the Sherrills Ford community who need help providing gifts for their children. Recipients will NOT be foster children, as the Angel Tree program takes care of those children. Rather, these are families who have been selected in partnership with school guidance counselors to apply for assistance. Those selected will be given appointment times to come shop at the Connor Recreation Center. They will be able to purchase new toys and other items for their children at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, each family will receive a feast box of non-perishable foods. The need is greater than ever in our community. If you would like to be a part of this special program, whether as a volunteer or to donate to the cause, please contact Natalie.
If you are interested in donating items, see our Wish List for ideas. We are greatly in need of items for middle- and high school students.
Angel Tree - Rehobeth is once again supporting an Angel Tree mission this year. Our Angel Tree recipients are foster children who are living in Catawba County. If you can help, please take a card from the Angel Tree in the narthex, purchase one or two gifts listed on the card, and return the gift(s) to the narthex by Sunday, December 6. You do not have to purchase all items listed on the card. You may place your gifts in a gift bag or attach a bow but please do not wrap your gifts. Be sure to attach the card to your gifts. Thank you for brightening the holidays for a foster child.
Rehobeth's Turn to Serve - Rehobeth will be preparing and serving lunch for our local soup kitchen, The Corner Table, in Newton. We will prepare the meal on Wednesday, December 2, from 4:30 to 6 PM in the fellowship hall. On Wednesday, December 3, we will serve the meal at The Corner Table from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. If you are interested in helping either day, please contact the church office.
Walking Program - Everyone is invited to come walk at Rehobeth's Connor Recreation Center on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:30 AM. If the weather is good, we will walk the track; otherwise, we will walk inside the Rec Center. Come join us for some good exercise and fellowship!
Help Us Grow a Poinsettia Tree - Help us decorate our church for Christmas with beautiful poinsettias for our poinsettia tree. Plants can be ordered through the church for $7.00 each, and you may take them home with you following the Christmas Eve service. You may purchase plants in memory or in honor of someone special. If you would like to order, please sign the list in the narthex by Sunday, November 29.
