Balsam fir greenery and red ribbon for a bow will be supplied. You may also bring you personal supplies if you wish. The cost is $5 for a frame and $5 for a bow.

Christmas Cards for Troops, Veterans, and Abernathy Laurels Residents – Due December 12

It’s now time to send out Christmas cards as part of our ongoing card ministry! A container will be on the bench in front of the church on Sunday, December 5, that has cards for you to take home and sign.
Of course, you may also sign/write cards of your own.

We will be sending the Christmas cards to solders on active duty in Kuwait, patients at the VA Hospital in Salisbury, and residents of
Abernethy Laurels.

Please note that there is a very short turn-around time. The deadline for returning the cards to the church will be December 12. A container will be on the bench in front of the church on Saturday, December 11 and Sunday, December 12 for you to return your cards.

Thank you for supporting this ministry!

You won’t want to miss this year’s special Christmas music, performed by our own Rehobeth Chancel Choir under the direction of Carol Graham. The choir will be performing selections from the cantata, “Touched by a Child, Touched by a King,” by John Purifoy.

This year, the choir will perform at both the 8:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services on Sunday, December 12. Do come and receive the blessing of music from our very talented choir!

White Gifts Service – December 19

The children and youth will be performing a Bell Christmas program at this year’s White Gifts Service on Sunday, December 19. In preparation for this event, the youth and kids will be practicing on Sundays, December 5 and 12, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. The service itself will be held on December 19 starting at 6:00 p.m. in the sanctuary.

Note: Due to safety precautions, we will not have a church-wide Christmas party after the service.
