Loving our community in the time of COVID 19
When asked what the greatest commandment is, Jesus encouraged people to love God and to love neighbor as themselves. This call is meant to transform how we see ourself and the community around us. Jesus is reminding us that a core part of our relationship with God is woven into how we care for the community. It is because of our deep love for the communities in which we live that we are following the guidelines of public health officials by social distancing and not meeting in groups. We will follow these guidelines until the restrictions are lifted.
During this time of restriction the pastor and staff of the church will continue to do their vital ministries of holding together our life-giving community relationships. They will be the clearing house for information, put ministry resources online and provide connection and support for people who are feeling the weight of isolation.
RFUMC Youth Fundraiser
Our youth are partnering with Kind Cotton through September 27 to raise money for youth scholarships. These scholarships will be used to help youth pay for mission trips and retreats. Kind Cotton will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the youth group as well as donating a book through their reading program to a child for every purchase made. All items sold through the fundraiser will have RFUMC in the title. Please make sure that you are purchasing items through our fundraiser if possible. Items will be shipped to the church office and will be delivered to those living in the surrounding cities. In order to make deliveries we are asking that you provide your phone number. After providing your number and preordering you will be able to check out through your shopping bag in the upper right hand corner. Please reach out to Shelby or the front office if you do not have internet access or are having trouble placing your order.
