Rehoboth Theme Verse 2017

‘ My food,’ said Jesus, ‘is to do the
will of him who sent me and to finish
his work. Don’t you have a saying,
“It’s still four months until harvest”?
I tell you, open your eyes and look at
the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
John 4: 34-35


This is what the LORD says—
your Redeemer and Creator:
“I am the LORD, who made all things.
I alone stretched out the heavens.”

Isaiah 44:24


About Rehoboth…You may be wondering why the Church, located at the end of a late Victorian street has such an unusual name. Unusual it may be, but in the Bible we find mention of it very early on in the Old Testament, where Isaac ordered  a well to be dug for water after various disputes had taken place over the rights of the wandering Israelites to draw water from other peoples wells. They dug a new well and no one complained about it, and so they named it Rehoboth which means “the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land” (Gen 26 v 22). Our church may not be very big but we like to think there is room for everyone who comes along and that those who do will have no cause to complain! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
