Mission & Ministry Opportunities
Cards for Our Troops – Make a New Year's Resolution 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!
Valentine Cards and Candy for Our Troops - We will be sending Valentine cards and candy to our troops. The preferred type of candy is “snack size” individually-wrapped chocolates. Candy may be placed in the large container in the narthex. Please mark your cards “Valentine” and place them in the red, white, and blue box on the table in the narthex. The deadline for bringing Valentine cards and candy is Sunday, February 1. “Get well” and “thank you” cards may be deposited in the box any time. Please remember, you may sign your cards, but do not include your return address.
Blessing Bags – Our Faith Leading Youth have assembled “Blessing Bags” containing that may bless someone you encounter. The bags contain toiletry and other items that may be useful to someone in need. There are separate bags for men and women. The cost is $15 per bag and proceeds go to our Faith Leading Youth. You may pick up your blessing bags from the table in the narthex. You may also deposit your payment in the basket on the table. Checks may be made out to “Rehobeth UMC” with the words “Blessing Bag” in the memo line.
Inviting Someone to Church? – If you've ever felt uncertain about inviting someone to church, we are offering two sessions that will help you recognize opportunities and find "non-threatening" ways to extend the invitation. On February 8th, we will discuss the importance of praying for a heart for the lost, praying for courage to invite, praying for specific people, and remembering your own faith story. On February 1th, we will discuss what the gospel really is, understanding that your invitation to another has eternal consequences for them, and learning to trust God with the outcome. Each session will begin at 3:00 PM and end by 4:15 PM. All materials will be provided. If you're interested in participating, sign the list in the narthex.
Income Tax Preparation Time is Coming – If you need a record of your contributions to Rehobeth Church for 2014, please sign the list in the church office.
Note: If you signed the list last week, your statement is ready to be picked up from the church office.
