Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’
Rehoboth Missions is committed to seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance and enabling power in reaching out beyond its walls to address the needs and concerns of those across the street, down the road, and around the globe. We desire to teach them about Christ and to communicate and demonstrate his ministry of love and compassion by first meeting their most basic needs as James taught …and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill’, and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? James 2:16

Appalachia Service Project
Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. Their goal is to make homes “warmer, safer and drier” for needy families and for more than 40 years, they’ve done exactly that for thousands of families. Rehoboth Missions is proud to partner with ASP staff each year by participating in their Youth Program during the summer. The youth of Rehoboth UMC travel to Appalachia to make homes warmer, safer, and drier but return home stronger, wiser, and closer to God. Click the ASP logo for the dedicated page.
Our Parish Nursing Ministry provides wise and necessary health information on a monthly basis through our Parish Nurse Newsletter:
In addition, the third Sunday of each month, you can have your blood pressure checked after the 10:45 AM service in Room 103 off of the main hallway where the restrooms are located.
Rehoboth UMC supports the Micah’s Backpack mission of feeding 10 children that qualify for free or reduced lunch program at Williamsport Elementary School. Each week during the school year, the identified students receive a bag filled with enough food for the weekend. The bags include two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, and snacks.

What is PLACE?
PLACE is an intentional process to connect church members into purpose-driven ministry including self discovery, individualized ministry coaching and tracking from workshop training to ministry placement. Through the PLACE process,
people discover that God has created and gifted them with a unique capacity to serve others. Click the PLACE logo for its dedicated page.
We realize that when you are choosing educational programs and child care for your children you do have a choice. That is why we strive to offer the best programs in an environment that reinforces Christian values and supports the whole family. We provide child care services for children ages 2 through 13 years of age that engage each child and promote independence and creativity.
Rehoboth’s Congregational Care program is love in action as we seek to “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ,” as we are taught in Galatians 6:2. We serve those in our church family and community with special needs in the following ways:
- Keeping in touch with our homebound and nursing home residents
- Sending encouraging cards to those experiencing health issues, deaths in the family, etc.
- Coordinating funeral luncheons
- Preparing meals and delivering them to those recuperating from surgery or treatments on a short-term basis
- Providing a quilt made with love and prayer to those with serious illness, the homebound, and to babies being baptized.
If you or a loved one is hospitalized or in need of assistance through one of the ministries above, please call or email the Church Office (301-223-9554), one of the pastors, or the Congregational Care Coordinator to let us know.
Hospitals do not call pastors or churches when people are admitted or discharged. The only way Rehoboth UMC can provide good pastoral care for our people and our community is if we are notified of the need by individuals themselves or by church members calling on their behalf.
Thank you in advance for helping us serve our brothers and sisters in Christ by being our eyes and ears on behalf of those needing help!
