Here’s your Rock news for the week:
THIS SUNDAY: Practicing some spiritual disciplines will help you get in the game. Week 1 was prayer – the regular huddle with God we all need to know the play. Week 2 was fasting – an exercise to help take the focus off of our needs and wants and focus on what God wants for the team. Please plan to join us at 10:00 a.m. at the Lied Senior Center this Sunday for Week 3 of Game Day.
COME EARLY TO GO DEEPER: Everyone is welcome to do some bible study before our gathering each Sunday. Come to the Rocker Room at the Lied Senior Center a little early (at 8:45 a.m.). This week, the group is diving into the book of Acts.
PRAISE GOD! WE’VE GOT ALL THE CHAIRS! Last Sunday we received the last gifts necessary to finish off the Chair-It-Able Campaign and fund 300 chairs! Praise God! A big thank you to everyone who participated!
