RHI News

  • While the deadline for registering for this summer's SOS is May 1, nearly half of the 200 openings for participants have been filled. RHI coordinator Randolph Wilson reports that 97 have registered for the June 23-30 event and that a theme for the Servants on Site week has been chosen. The theme, "Fixed," will be explained by guest speakers at each of the evening worship services during the week.


    The services and their emphases will be: Sunday, "Need Fixing," based on Romans 3:9-18; Monday, "Can Be Fixed," based on Romans 1:16; Tuesday, "All Eyes Fixed on Jesus," a panel discussion; Thursday, "God's Plan is Fixed," based on Matthew 28; Friday, "God is Fixing a Place - Eternity," based on John 14:1-11. On Wednesday evening, participants choose their own activities.

    Encourage your youths to take part in this mission endeavor. If you know of any churches or youths you feel would be interested, call our office with contact information. The cost is $150 per participant. Participants must have completed sixth grade. Keep in mind that for every five youths, we require one adult of the same sex.

    Needs for SOS

    Volunteers - Adult/college-age volunteers are needed to serve as staff during the week. Staff assists with setting up the rooms, posting signs and schedules and for chores such as cleaning bath and restroom facilities.

    Financial Support for SOS Projects - A roofing project costs approximately $2,000, but any amount is appreciated. A church sponsoring a project will "adopt" the crew for the week and serve lunch each day. Your crew will attend your church for worship and lunch on Sunday and met your congregation. Afterwards, the crew will visit the homeowner. Churches may also partner to sponsor a project.
