Mission

Mission seeks to reflect Christ to the community – locally and throughout the world – through ministering to the hungry, the homeless, and those who struggle to hold onto hope.

Holiday support

$5.00 FAST FOOD GIFT CARDS will be handed out mid-December to homeless or Veterans in need. You can purchase cards from fast food places such as McDonalds, Burger King, etc. or donate $ and the Mission Committee can purchase for you. Just write your check to RRPC with Vet’s meal cards in the memo line.

THE “ADOPT SOMEONE FOR CHRISTMAS” program will begin soon! The Mission Committee is working with the local community to provide Christmas gifts to families in need this Christmas season. There will be an opportunity for you to select individuals for whom you would like to purchase gifts. We will again this year have the option to adopt a person in the family. If you miss the sign up, don’t worry, you may purchase gift cards from Wal-Mart, Smith’s, etc and place in a jar (please label the $$ value on the card). These gift cards will go to additional families in need.

There will be a display in the narthex with instructions. You will find a sign-up list identifying a family, ie Family A, Family B, etc. identifying each person by gender and age, with a brief “wish list” for each person. When you select the person you wish to buy for, take the card/slip from the bag to keep with you for your shopping. Locate that individual on the sign-up sheet nearby and write your name and phone number on the list to indicate he/she has been “adopted” by you. Wrapped gifts need to be brought to the church on or before December 17th. Please be sure to attach tags with family and individual identified.

Thank you, Kim Mishos & family on Behalf of Mission Committee
