The 2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund
Beginning in 2000, RPC mission teams to Guatemala recognized the need for a scholarship program to help with the costs of providing a Christian education for young Guatemalan students in the District of Quiché. These annual scholarships, funded by “sponsors” who are RPC members or friends, provide tuition for one full school year, books and materials needed during the year, and a chance for a bright future.

NFCC Back-to-School School Supply Drive
There is nothing like seeing the delight on a child’s face when they get to pick out their new backpack for the school year! With your help, we provided 965 children with the supplies they needed to succeed academically and relieve the financial stress associated with starting school for their struggling parents.
Food Pantry Needs of NFCC
These items are needed most:canned tuna chicken and meat, cereal and oatmeal, dried beans 1 lb bag, all types of pasta, pasta sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, meals in can, jelly/peanut butter, mac n cheese, flavored rice/pasta, ramen noodle packs, canned beans, black beans, refried beans, garbanzo. All toiletries; toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. families can not use food stamps for these so the need is high.

Please place these items in the bins outside the church office or you may drop them directly at NFCC at 11270 Elkins Road, Roswell
North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is the primary human services agency for residents in North Fulton County. NFCC has a client choice panty; their clients go to the computers in their lobby and choose the food their family needs so this is a list of the current NFCC needs.

The success of Family Promise North Fulton/Dekalb depends on the efforts and enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers. Without volunteers, there would be no Family Promise ministry! A variety of volunteer opportunities are available so you can best decide how to serve this amazing ministry at RPC that fits your schedule, your talent or your offering.
HomeStretch needs volunteers for their front office for several shifts either once a week or every other week. They also need a financial volunteer to support their financial manager directly once or twice a week. If you are interested in volunteering with HomeStretch, contact Athea King at AtheaKing@homestretch.org
1. Program Material Preparation
Spend some time in the HomeStretch office assisting the Program Director by updating and assembling New Family Welcome Books and Mentor Training Manuals. Schedule is flexible.
2. Office Assistance
Volunteers are needed to staff the reception area, organize supplies and archive files. This is generally an on-going commitment a few hours each week but one-time help is also needed.
3. Data Entry Assistance
Help the HomeStretch staff enter data into their internal systems. Training provided and the work is simple for anyone comfortable using a computer. Schedule is flexible.
4. Event Committee Member
Join the group of staff and volunteers who plan the Road Race held in March. Many roles are available to suit any time and talent you have.
