name, Rehoboth, comes from the story of Isaac in Genesis 26:17-22. Isaac and his family dug a well and the herders in that
area said that the water belonged to them. Isaac and his family moved and dug another well and again the herders said that
the water belonged to them. Isaac and his family once again moved and dug another well. This time no one else laid claim to
the well. Verse 22b says "so he (Isaac) called it (the well) Rehoboth, saying, 'Now the Lord has made room for us...'" (NRSV)
The Hebrew term translated "Rehoboth" means "broad places," and the sense of the name is "a place where everyone is
welcome." In using this name, Isaac was saying that he and his family had finally found a place where they could settle down,
live peaceably, and worship God. Just as Isaac and his family found a place beside the well, we hope that you will visit Rehoboth
and find a place here. It is indeed a place where everyone is welcome and where you and your family can worship and serve
in a peaceful, loving, and embracing Christian community.
