Here’s your Rock news for the week:
SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK THIS WEEKEND! Daylight savings time ends this weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night.
THIS SUNDAY: The first week at the new Rock was great! Praise God and thanks to all who worked so hard to get everything ready. Guess what? We get to do it again. Join us this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for our second worship gathering at the Rock at 237 S. Third Street. We’ll take a look “Behind the Music” and see how God used tragedy to birth a song that has been a comfort to many. We get to have another baptism too! Caution: The contractor is still working on a few things so look out for some continued messiness.
ROCKER ROOM HELP: Now that we have a new big Rocker Room for the kids, we are looking for some volunteers to help keep things organized and keep an eye on some kids during worship on Sunday mornings. Would you be willing to help? Respond to this email or sign up at church this Sunday. Have questions? See Holly Parry.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING MEETING ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8: Parents and youth who have committed to attend the National Youth Gathering should plan to attend a meeting Sunday, November 8, at 1pm at the Rock.
COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE: The Youth attending the National Youth Gathering are selling delicious Bean Smith coffee (ground or beans) to help raise funds to attend the Gathering. Bean Smith Coffee Roasters is an Omaha company that makes great coffee. Have a favorite youth attending the gathering? Find them and place your order. Don’t know anyone going but still want some great coffee? Go to the table in the fellowship area and find Sara Moll before or after church. Orders will be taken through November 15 with the coffee to arrive by early December – just in time for Christmas gifts! Want to know how the coffee tastes? Have some at the Rock. The Rock will be serving “Mockingbird” a light roast blend from Bean Smith coffee the next two Sundays.
LADIES BIBLE STUDY: The ladies of Morning Amigos are starting a new study for the Christmas season. Beginning Thursday, November 19 and continuing through December 17, the group will be working through “The Purpose of Christmas” by Rick Warren. Cost of the study guide is $7 and there is little or no homework. All ladies are welcome. The group meets at the Civic Center from 10:15 am to 11:30 am on Thursdays. Interested? Respond to this email or contact Sara Moll or Andrea Sloup.
NEW LOCATION FOR ROCK PRAYER GROUP: The Ladies Prayer group is now meeting in the cry room on the third level at the new Rock. The group generally meets on Fridays at noon. See Sara Moll for a schedule and more information.
BLUE VALLEY PANTRY: The item for November is TOOTHPASTE. Grab a few tubes and drop them off at the Rock any Sunday next month.
Blessings on your weekend.
