Some goings-on at Old Rehoboth

Also of note:

Blessing of the Fleet(s)

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. When you're so near the water, this coincides with the unofficial start of the recreational boating season, as well. As part of the annual opening events, a Blessing of the Fleet was conducted on May 24th at Somers Cove Marina in Crisfield. This year we had an extra flotilla of boaters in town visiting so the docks were even busier than usual!

The Col. gets a new sign

The previous marker which had been affixed to the wrought iron fence surrounding the resting place of Col. William Stevens, Esq., who died in 1687, was looking a wee bit weatherbeaten. A replacement sign has now been completed and affixed to the wrought iron fence surrounding his grave.

Children's Church

The Children's Church meeting room in the Fellowship Hall is being brightened up, as the tabletop has be primed in preparation for its refurbishing. The kids have been getting their hands messy as they are helping to re-decorate the table in acrylics.

A tribute at Old Rehoboth

On the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, a group from the Somerset Historical Society arranged for a ceremony honoring the memory of our local veterans who had served in the War of 1812. A small group (and the press) turned out at the Old Rehoboth Churchyard to decorate the graves of those who were buried here and then the group traveled to other sites in the county to conduct similar services in three other locations.

A visit from National Public Radio (NPR)

On the First Sunday in Lent, we were honored to have Bryan Russo here at Old Rehoboth

He is a producer with National Public Radio who came to profile historic Old Rehoboth as part of a new on-air series called "Faith on the Coast". He worshipped with us and recorded the service, then stayed to conduct a couple of interviews. The program features about 20 minutes of edited material, including some of our music and discussions on what it means to be Presbyterian today in a place with such an historic tradition and noteworthy pedigree.
