We invite you to participate in these special seasonal activities and mission opportunities.
Hats and Mittens for Foster Children – Due December 1
Once again, Rehobeth is helping to bring Christmas warmth and cheer to the foster children in Catawba County. Cards with each child’s first name and age have been placed in pouches on the display in the narthex. Simply (1) take one or more cards from any of the pouches, (2) purchase a toboggan hat, mittens or gloves, and an age-appropriate book for each child, (3) tie ribbon around each child’s gift, using the sample in the narthex as a guide (do not wrap the gifts), (4) attach the original card to your gift, and (5) place your gift in the appropriate container in the narthex.
Christmas Cards for Troops – Due December 8
Be sure to remember our active and wounded troops overseas this Christmas! Christmas cards will be available in the narthex on Sunday, November 17 and Sunday, November 24, for you to take and sign. Or, if you prefer, purchase your own cards to send. You may sign your name on the inside of the card and include a note but, for security reasons, do not include your return address. Be sure to write “Merry Christmas” on the envelope. Deposit your cards in the red, white, and blue box in the narthex. Thank you for supporting those who won’t be home for the holidays!
