Interested participants please sign up with Hazel (office@rumplechurch.org) so that you will have ample time to read a small book in preparation for the group. The book, Making All Things New: An Invitation to the Spiritual Life, by Henri Nouwen, will be available in the church office for purchase, $10 each, starting February 9.  If you are unable to participate in the group but would like to read along with the book, please speak to Kathy.
    
Rise Against Hunger

Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church  is co-hosting a meal-packaging event with Rise Against Hunger on Sunday, March 18 at 3:00pm at the American Legion in Blowing Rock.

We will package meals for 1-2 hours, then share a potluck meal. We are partnering with St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church​, FaithBridge United Methodist Church​, and the Appalachian State Presbyterian Episcopal Campus Ministry to package over 10,000 dehydrated meals for those in need around the world. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization based in Raleigh, NC. The packaged meals are used primarily to support school feeding programs in developing countries, which not only addresses hunger but also the related challenges of poverty, disease, education, and the welfare of women and children.

HISTORY
The church takes its name from the Rev. Dr. Jethro Rumple, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury, a frequent missionary preacher in the mountains, a summer resident toward the end of his life, and one of the most remarkable North Carolinians of his generation. Blowing Rock’s spectacular setting, cool breezes, and natural wonders began attracting summer visitors after the Civil War. Presbyterians were the first to build a house of worship in town. Among the founders were Col. William J. Martin, Sr., and his son and namesake, both professors at Davidson College. Others included Mrs. Emma Stewart, who ran a boarding house in Davidson during the academic year and one in Blowing Rock during the summer. Local and summer people quickly joined in the effort. A small frame structure was built in 1886, and the church was organized with eight members the following year.
