The Presbyterian Women need your help in collecting aluminum pull tabs from cans for the Ronald McDonald House in Durham. We also need your help collecting Box Tops for Education for Christian Hope Alliance. There will be a place set up to collect them on the table in the room to the left off the Narthex when entering the Sanctuary doors. You may also deposit the pull tabs in the container in the kitchen window off of Fellowship Hall.

Interfaith VBS: Vacation Bible School will be held this year from Monday July 22 – Thursday, July 25! RPC is partnering with other local churches in the Interfaith Outreach Ministry to offer VBS to members of the Heritage Circle and Weatherly Heights communities, as well as to members of the partnering churches. VBS will be for 3 year olds through 5th graders, plus there will be an adult class this year! It will be held at First Baptist Church from 5:30-8:00. The theme this year is “Athens-Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth.” Children will visit Paul’s tent-making house, sing at the Music Shop, play at Arena games, and visit the pottery studio in the Marketplace as they make the connection between what they learn in Athens and their everyday lives. A sign-up sheet is enclosed with your bulletin and on the bulletin board. Hope to see you attending or volunteering at this year’s VBS! Contact Jane Forton for questions or more information; 336-583-4975, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are collecting hard surface suitcases until August to be painted in collaboration with Anne Bettendorf’s art students at Roxboro Community School. Suitcases will be cleaned and delivered to RCS. Upon completion, they will be taken to Social Services or Safe Haven to be given to children being displaced from their homes who may not have suitcases for their belongings.
Since 1992, the Presbyterian Women's Birthday Offering has helped fund mission projects that improve lives. This year's Birthday Offering recipients are the following: Disaster Response Team (Presbytery of Charlotte, NC), Effingham Child Development Center (Illinois), Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky, INC., and Wings of Refuge (Iowa). PW Offering envelopes will be in the pews for your use in contributing to these worthy causes.
Roxboro Presbyterian will have a covered-dish luncheon after church on May 5th to celebrate the PW Birthday
Offering. Please bring your favorite dishes and join together as we focus on our PW ministry and the opportunities we have to help others with designated projects. See Delories Sherman or Carolyn Woodall if you have questions.
Advent Poinsettias: The Worship Committee will once again be decorating the Sanctuary with poinsettias for Advent and Christmas.
