<![CDATA[Mission Project - Back to School Supplies]]>Tue, 15 Jun 2021 18:45:29 GMThttp://roxboropc.org/rpc-news/mission-project-back-to-school-suppliesYou are invited to participate in our next local mission project! All summer long we will be collecting back-to-school items for students and teachers. In addition to donating items for students (paper, pens, pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, notebooks, backpacks, etc.), please also consider donating supplies teachers typically purchase for their classroom with their own money-Kleenex, dry erase markers, and hand sanitizer. Please drop items off in the box in the narthex all summer long. When school begins, items will be donated to local schools. Thank you for your support of this project!

The Mission Committee also invites you to add a few items to our Summer collections project! Anne Bettendorf is continuing the yearly project of having her Art students decorate suitcases for foster children who are removed from their homes. These beautifully decorated suitcases give the children a place to put their belongings and contain some basic supplies for them. Hopefully, they provide a small amount of joy in the middle of a difficult time for these children.
Items needed for the suitcases are:
     coloring books ● crayons ● toothbrushes ● toothpaste ●   travel-size toiletries

                                                                                                                                                                The Mission Committee]]>
<![CDATA[Covid Policy Changes for Worship]]>Tue, 25 May 2021 17:10:13 GMThttp://roxboropc.org/rpc-news/covid-policy-changes-for-worshipCovid Policy Changes: The session has made some changes to our Covid policy for worship.
  • You do not have to wear a mask if you are fully vaccinated. That means, 2 weeks have passed since your second shot (or two weeks after first if you opted for Johnson & Johnson).
  • Those who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue to wear masks at worship.
  • Also, congregational singing (not too loudly) is now permitted.
