Four churches have joined forces to offer VBS in our community: First Baptist Church, Warren's Grove Methodist Church, Church of Latter Day Saints, and Roxboro Presbyterian Church. Kids from the local area were invited and a van was provided to assist with transportation.
The kids and adults enjoyed dinner each night, along with music, games, art, and a Bible lesson!
Saturday was a good day for road side clean up in Roxboro! Several RPC members got together to help clean up the area.
This week's Lenten Luncheon was led by Roxboro Presbyterian Church. Pastor Evan Walker reminded us of God's promise. Thank you to the members of Long Memorial for hosting these weekly luncheons.
Members of Roxboro Presbyterian Church focused on two mission projects during the months of September and October. Members collected coins in tennis ball can "banks" and raised a total of $905.48 that will be divided between the Christian Help Center and the Presbyterian Hunger Fund. They also participated in a "Fill the Bag" food campaign in which they filled grocery bags with specified numbers of canned meat, soup, peanut butter, green beans and other vegetables, applesauce, macaroni/cheese dinners, rice and dried beans. Items in each bag should provide a family of 4 with meals for 3 days. Seven hundred pounds of groceries were collected and delivered to the Christian Help Center.
We are starting fellowship groups to share and get to know each other better. Sixteen members from Roxboro Presbyterian journeyed together for the day. The first trip was to Maple View Farms where we learned about dairy farming and the history of the farm. Then, we all shared delicious ice cream.
A great time was had by all and we invite and encourage others to join us for the next trip. Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming events!
Members of Roxboro Presbyterian Church collected items to donate to the students and teachers at South Elementary School. Best wishes for a wonderful year!
