Rejoice hosts a tea party for the women of the church and community. It is a time to gather together the women for fellowship and fun for no reason at all except to enjoy the Christmas season. It’s a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon in December tasting dainty foods, playing fun games, enjoying the festive decor and experiencing Christmas cheer!
Oktoberfest is a time to fellowship with other members of Rejoice, a time to enjoy German music, games and fun festivities for the whole family. Participants are asked to bring a side dish or a dessert and a beverage of their choice. Tasty Brats are grilled and provided by The Holy Smokers. Weather permitting, the Oktoberfest festivities are held in the Pumpkin Patch.
Once a year Rejoice holds the 11:00am service in our backyard with family members and members of the community along with a furry family member. Each pet is blessed. Music is provided by the wonderful and talented Ascend Band. It’s a great way to worship with your furry family member(s) in God’s beautiful backyard.
Each Christmas season the young people of Rejoice participate in a Christmas Pageant which is presented in a worship service. It is a fun, lively, joy-filled opportunity that incorporates every age group. There is a part for everyone in this creative and worshipful experience.
Ladies Murder Mysteries
Four Ladies Murder Mystery Dinners have been held at Rejoice: Killing for the Crown; Happy Ever After; Death by Chocolate; and Lights, Camera, Murder. What fun events! Each person is handed a part with directions. The playacting begins and continues until the mystery is solved. Each person is asked to dress for the event that will take place. Food, fun, and lots of laughter!!
Sip 'n Paint
Something wonderful occurs when a group of people get together and feel free to have fun with paint. We often, as adults, forget that it is important to be creative, that it is proven to be beneficial to our mind, our spirit and our health. In the casual scene of Sip and Paint classes, adults allow themselves time to just have fun. No painting experience necessary!
