RPTS has decided to forgo the usual format for it’s Annual Support Dinner scheduled for Friday, March 12, 2021. Instead, there will be a special video event with many “extras”. The video will be released at 6:30 PM on March 12 on Facebook and YouTube and will be available for viewing later. A digital program booklet will be available to help guide you through the event.
In this special event, you will still enjoy some of the customary parts of the evening, such as student testimonies, Psalm singing, an RPTS update, and some time with President York. We will also introduce our Faithful Servant, Rev. Robert McFarland. You will learn a bit more about the Lord using Bob in Christ’s Kingdom and get to hear from him as well.
Register for the event below and we will keep you up to date with video links, news, and information.
One of the highlights of the evening is dining together which is a bit tough to do online, but not impossible. So if you like (and if you are Stateside!), you can join us for a meal as well! We are arranging with ‘Freshly’ to deliver a prepared meal to your house, which you will be able to microwave and eat during the presentation!
We felt it important, in a year where so little has been normal, to do something familiar such as eating together, even if we do it in an unusual manner. With that in mind, there is expense in doing this. If you are not interested in the meal, that is fine and there will be a way to note that during registration. If you are able to help with the cost of the meals, that will be a great blessing.
There will be a few options for the meals including a vegetarian choice. All of the meals are gluten free. Sorry, we could not arrange for shipping a dessert or beverages, so you are on your own for that! Meals will be safely shipped, on ice, to your address. Just put the food in your refrigerator when it arrives; simple and easy.
You will need to register for a meal by February 22, 2021, at noon eastern time.
The goal with the meal is to have it ready to eat at 6:30 on March 12 while you watch the program. If it is appropriate, gather together to share the evening at your home or church.
You can register for the event (no charge) even if you do not want to join for dinner.
If you are interested in submitting a written tribute for Bob McFarland, please send it to Kim Backensto by March 1, 2021.
