It’s game day (GBR and Go Dawgs)! Here’s your Rock news for the week:
THIS SUNDAY: It’s Game Day and time for a new series called (conveniently enough) Game Day! Join us this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. at the Lied Senior Center for Week 1. Before the team hits the field, you need to huddle up with the coach. We’ll take some time to look at how the team gets ready. ALSO: If you haven’t had the chance to finish your Remember and Give Thanks assignments, it is still a good time to get them done. Week 1 Assignment – Put your memorial “rock” somewhere to help you remember how God has helped and guided you over the last 10 years; Week 2 Assignment – Send a thank you note to someone who has been a big influence in your life; Week 3 – take $5 (or whatever amount you want) and use it to “pay forward” all the blessings God has showered on us. ALSO PART TWO: Don’t forget your chance to dig a little deeper on Sunday mornings. Come to the Lied Senior Center a little early (at 8:45 a.m.) to participate in a video-based discussion called, “The Bible On Trial: Beyond A Reasonable Doubt.”
THE END IS IN SIGHT! We are really close to wrapping up the chair-it-able campaign. You have until September 20 to participate and we only need a few more chairs!
WORK NIGHT WEDNESDAY! Wednesday work nights continue at the new Rock. Please head over to the new Rock at 237 S. 3rd to help out from 5pm to 8pm or so.
FAMILY PICNIC THIS WEDNESDAY!! Everyone (including families from Stepping Stones, Faith Ink, and Godparents) is invited to join us at Plum Creek Park on the West Side by the Tennis Courts for a picnic to kick off Wednesday night activities this fall. Sloppy Joes and table service will be provided. Each family is asked to bring a side dish to share and their own beverages. Families may want to bring lawn chairs and blankets too. (In the event of rain, we will meet Sunday, Sept. 13th). Also, don’t forget to check out the web site (www.therockseward.org) for more information about Stepping Stones, Faith Ink, Godparents and how you can register. Regular meetings of those groups will be starting on September 16.
BUILDING TOYS. Stepping Stones is looking for building toys. If you are willing to donate new or gently used items such as building blocks, tinker toys, KNEX, Duplos, Legos, tools, interlocking gear sets, connecting tube toys, and other building toys for age 3-grade 4, please bring those items to The ROCK on Sunday mornings by Sept. 13.
BLUE VALLEY PANTRY: BOXED MEALS for September.
Blessings on your weekend.
