The End is Near  ///  The year is drawing to a close and we want you to be aware of a few important items related to your giving. Your last chance to give and receive tax credit for 2019 is Sunday, December 29 in person and Tuesday, December 31 online (www.rockpointe.org/give). If you give regularly one way you can really help our accounting team is by giving online or using pre-numbered tithe envelopes (which are different from the ones in the seats). 2020 envelope sets are available at the Welcome Center. Questions? Contact RCC Business Manager Julia Davis (julia@rockpointe.org).

Rockpointe Pantry  ///  Our Rockpointe Pantry could use a boost for the holidays! Here’s what we could really use: household paper goods (tissues, toilet paper, etc.), feminine products, shampoos & soaps, dental care items, diapers, baby food, drink boxes, peanut butter & jelly, pasta & sauce, pancake mix & syrup, canned fish & meats, protein bars, soups, boxed potatoes, rice mixes, canned fruit, cereal, and granola bars. The Pantry is open for anyone who needs it and is located at the north end of the Concourse. Donations of goods are always welcome.

Recycling Initiative /// If you don’t need to keep your bulletin or insert cards, please help us out by recycling them! Just drop them off at one of the baskets at the back of the sanctuary or at either balcony exit. And for all you “advanced recyclers,” check out the Paper Retriever in our north parking lot! We get cash back for all the tons (literally!) of paper that ends up in our Paper Retriever! Acceptable items include: office/school paper, newspaper, construction paper, magazines and catalogs, shredded paper (in plastic bags), junk mail, notebooks, and writing tablets. NO phone books, books, plastic, glass, metal, trash or cardboard. Thank you!
