Consider Supporting RUF-I George Mason University

Many of you have had opportunity to meet the DeLong family who have visited SRPC in the past. Matthew is the Reformed University Fellowship – International (RUF-I) campus minister at George Mason University (GMU). RUF-I GMU is a local ministry with global reach. As they welcome students and scholars from around the world to George Mason University by meeting physical needs and building community, they are promoting international friendships, cultural exchange, and, above all, providing a safe environment for them to explore the Christian faith. Please consider supporting this important ministry.

There is currently a matching grant available to RUF-I George Mason University for new giving of up to $10,000.  Any new giving submitted by December 31st will be matched up to $10,000.  visit https://givetoruf.org/Donate?productid=596.

Please, also help them get the word out about this matching grant opportunity by liking and sharing this post on social media.

Transportation need for Sunday mornings

Ministry Opportunity: A widow who recently relocated about 2 miles from SRPC is in need of a ride to and from worship service.  She lives near Harris Teeter at the Prince William Parkway/Hoadly Road intersection. She uses a scooter to get around, but it easily folds and can be placed in the trunk. If you are able to periodically provide a ride please let Ralph Bentley know.  He hopes to put together a list of 8 to 12 volunteers.  This would result in volunteers only providing a ride every 2 to 3 months.  It would involve contacting her a day or two before and providing your contact information and confirming she will be attending service.

This is a great opportunity to serve the Lord by helping someone in need.  Please consider volunteering.

VBS Set Building Help Needed Tomorrow and Monday

VBS prep is well underway and David Dise is asking for a few folks to help him Saturday 5/25/2019 and Monday 5/27/2019.

We will be applying paper posters to rigid foam boards using spray adhesive. This is slow and steady work requiring sure hands and a team of three. It’s really not for youngsters. We have about 20 posters to do so a couple crews would help. David is looking for a minimum of six volunteers. If we have two crews the work should take around 3 hours to complete.

We’ll get started at 10:00 am at David’s house; 6788 Signal Hill Road, Manassas. Wear clothes you don’t care about.

Please reply directly to David if you are coming.

Donations Needed for 2019 VBS

Even if you are not able to volunteer for VBS, you can help by donating or lending items needed for the week of VBS!

Please check out the donations list posted in the hallway near the nursery for items needed.

Also, we need many donations of juice boxes, small water bottles and 12-packs of soda.

Please contact Nancy Gennaro if you have questions.
