...stand in the GAP: Give, Act, Pray


The Rumple Mission Committee, in coordination with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) and Church World Service, will assemble 150 Hygiene Kits to help victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The generosity of our congregation during the Back2School drive this past summer was incredible, and we thank everyone who participated.
           

With the scope of the disasters over the past month, we feel like our congregation is ready and willing to do something tangible again to help those in need. Assembling the Hygiene Kits also gives our youth an opportunity to do something "hands on" to provide immediate assistance.
Among the items we need are:
* Hand towels, approximately 15"x 28" to 16" x 32"
* Washcloths
* Wide-tooth combs
* Finger nail or toe nail clippers
* Bath size bars of soap
* Toothbrushes in package
* Band-aids (standard size)


We do NOT need toothpaste, as the organization will add toothpaste just prior to shipping the Hygiene Kits to their destinations.)
     We will be shipping the boxes of the Hygiene Kits to Church World Service, so we're also happy to take donations to defray those costs.
Please bring any items you'd like to donate to the church office by Oct. 8. We'll have a donation bucket available in the lobby.

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.
