In-person services in our building will resume December 6. For everyone’s safety:
- Early service will be held in the sanctuary at 8:45 a.m.
- Second service will be held in the fellowship hall at 10:45 a.m.
- Everyone will be required to wear masks and to practice social distancing.
- Seating will be limited.
Because some of our members may not feel comfortable being in large gatherings, we will continue to post the service on Facebook.
Check our Facebook page for information about our Sunday worship service or to catch up on services you may have missed!
Decision on the Christmas Cantata and White Gifts Service:
We will not be holding the annual Christmas Cantata or the White Gifts Service because of the coronavirus. We hate not being able to do it, but we are concerned for the safety of our congregation and guests.
An important note about the Coronavirus
We know that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is of utmost concern. We want our people to feel safe and stay healthy.
Here are some reminders for all of us as we look ahead to the coming days, weeks, and perhaps months.
Practice “social distancing” in public. Instead of shaking hands or hugging each other in greeting, share a warm smile and a kind word.
Pray. Pray for the leaders of our nation and our state as they continue to refine and implement the response plan. Pray for God’s protection for our first responders and health care workers as they care for those afflicted by COVID-19. Pray for God’s comfort and peace for those who are stricken by this virus. Pray that God uses this crisis to unify our nation and bring more people to a saving relationship through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Stay in touch with your church family. We are still the Body of Christ in this place called Rehobeth, and this is a time when we all need to encourage each other. A simple phone call, email, or text message to just check in with each other will help us stay connected.
As best you can, continue to be faithful in your giving. We provide assistance to those in need through the Blessing Box and the Hunger & Helping Hand Fund, and those needs may increase during this time. The church itself continues to have expenses that we need to meet. Mail or drop off your donations at the church office. Or, use our Online Giving link to send a financial gift.
Fear not! We are people of faith, and we know that God holds us in His hands.
For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”
Thanks for visiting us online.
Rehobeth is a church with a long past. Founded in 1789, it is believed to be the oldest Methodist Church west of the Catawba River.
The first camp meeting to be held in the United States took place in a brush arbor on these grounds in 1794.
There are families that go back 8 and 9 generations who are members of this church. And, there are plenty of new families that have come to the shores of Lake Norman who call this church home.
We believe that you can find a place here to worship, grow in your faith, and serve. Be sure to check out the main menu for our information on other programs and scheduled offerings.
If you have any questions, please contact us. We hope to see you soon.
