<![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.

<![CDATA[Lenten Packets]]>Thu, 04 Feb 2021 17:46:19 GMThttp://roxboropc.org/rpc-news/lenten-packetsPicture
Dear Members and Friends,

It sure has been a time, hasn’t it?  With COVID it is harder to get to church, and the number of people permitted in church is limited.  You may be feeling isolated and not prepared for Lent.  This Lenten Package is to help you and your family have a spiritual practice at home during the forty days of Lent and to pray with scripture during that time.
This packet contains the following:
  1. Lenten Devotional Booklet with 40 days of devotions
  2. A cotton ball with “ashes” that you may make a cross on your forehead, and say a prayer, on Ash Wednesday February 17.  (The ashes consist of make-up, which can be washed off at the end of the day)
  3. Scriptures and Prayers for each of the following Holy Days:  Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday) and Good Friday;
  4. Valentines candy (God is Love!) and
  5. A token or prayer card for personal meditation.

The promise and guarantee of God is that Easter will come (April 4)!!  While we do not yet know what worship will be looking like at that time, we invite your participation, if possible, either in person or online.

I will have a "meet and greet" and "pick up your Lenten Packet" time outside on Lamar on Sunday afternoon, February 14th, from 2:00 - 4:30 pm. People who haven't laid eyes on me in person may be especially interested in coming to meet me. If you are not able to make it, members of the Session are willing to deliver them to you. So, please let us know.

God bless you,
Pastor Barbara Hager and Session
