Our Ministries

Food Pantry

We, along with Harvest Hope Food Bank and Pontiac Foods, provide food to needy families in the area. The food pantry is open Monday thru Wednesday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., or while supplies last. We also take donations from the local community to provide food for those seeking assistance. The first Sunday of each month our church has designated as "Mac-and-cheese Sunday". If you would like to donate, please bring your donation by the church office. The food pantry serves thousands of families each year.

Our Crossroads Sunday School class collects items and fills bags to give to the homeless.

They take the phones and distribute them to senior citizens who are in need of a cell phone for emergency situations. Please bring your donations to the church office. 
 
 
Dang-it-Doll Ministry
 
The Dang-it-doll ministry began in 2004. A grandmother of a soldier stationed in the Middle East decided she would make a "Dang-it-Doll" for her grandson so he might relieve frustration caused by being away from home and family with a stressful job. When other soldiers saw this, they also wanted a "Dang-it-doll". Since then thousands and thousands of dolls have been sent to our soldiers. Rehoboth collects yarn and fabric to give to this ministry. If you would like to participate, bring your donation to the church office.
 
 
Eyes and Ears Ministry
 
The Lions Club collects eyeglasses, hearing aids and accessories to be given to needy people. The Greg Smith Eagle project cabinet in the hallway of the Education Building has a drawer specifically for eyeglasses and hearing aids. Come by the office, and we will direct you to the correct location. We will see that your donations are delivered to a Lions Club collection point. 

 
Bibles for All
 
RUMC collects Bibles and gives them to any who do not have a Bible or may have lost their Bible due to a house fire, etc. The collection point is the Greg Smith Eagle project cabinet in the hallway of the Education Building, or you can bring your donation to the church office.
