Help Us Thank Our Public School Teachers – The members of the Mae Howard Circle hope you will join them in offering a special thanks to our local public school teachers. We will be making up “goodie baskets” that will be taken to the schools and given to the teachers to show our appreciation for all the work they do. For the next few weeks we will be collecting snack items and small gifts to go into these baskets. (These are items for the teachers, not their students.) These items may be placed in the container in the narthex. Our collection deadline is August 17.
Promotion Sunday – We will be celebrating Promotion Sunday September 7, 2014. All of our young Sunday School students will be promoted to their next grade. Please note that students in the second, fourth, and sixth grades will be changing classrooms. Also, during the worship services, our second graders will be receiving Bibles of their very own. If you have a child who will be in the second grade, please contact the church office as soon as possible. We don’t want to leave anyone out!

Churchwide Yard Sale - Planning for a churchwide yard sale is under way. The sale will be held in late August or early September. As we finalize the details, start cleaning out your closets and storage rooms. If you have items you no longer need, consider donating them to our yard sale. All proceeds will benefit the ministries and missions of Rehobeth's Faith Leading Youth (FLY).
