Here’s your Rock news for the week:
THIS SUNDAY: Last week we concluded “A Firm Place to Stand.” The M&M’s (Miracles & Marvels) we have from God are a natural thing to share with those around us. This week, we’ll have a chance to see how we can share beyond our borders. We’ll be joined by Sarah Kanoy, a career missionary and nurse who is planning medical mission work in Kenya. Click here for a little more information (http://i.b5z.net/i/u/1461075/ f/KANOY_FINAL_AGRMT.pdf) and join us a 10:00 a.m. on Sunday for a lot more information.
A FIRM PLACE TO STAND. Thanks to everyone who was able to stay and celebrate and give thanks with us last week. Remember to be in prayer this week for the plans for the Rock and how God is leading you to participate. If you weren’t able to attend and would like more information, please stay after church for a few minutes this Sunday.
COMFORT DOG: Our application to get a comfort dog for the Rock has been approved. The next step is to raise some funds to cover initial expenses and to identify a “Top Dog” – the person who schedules and coordinates the dog handlers. Want to help? Look for the dog food and drop your donation in the dog dish at the Rock. If you would consider being the Top Dog, please respond to this email or talk to Pastor Mike or Tom Rief.
COFFEE! The coffee is here! If you ordered from Sara Moll at church, you can pick up your order before or after church this Sunday! For those of you that ordered from individual youth, the youth will be contacting you soon to deliver your coffee.
LADIES’ BIBLE STUDY: Want to take some time for bible study to get ready for Christmas? All ladies are welcome to attend a bible study time on Thursdays at 10:15 am on the 3rd level of the Rock. The topic for the current study is “The Purpose of Christmas” by Rick Warren. Respond to this email or contact Sara Moll if you would like to join.
CHRISTMAS CHILD CARE: Need a little help with the kids while you shop or do some other things to get ready for Christmas? The youth and parents traveling to the National Youth Gathering this summer will be providing child care at the Rock from 1pm to 5pm on Sunday, December 6. Bring your child and a snack (water will be available). Suggested donation is $5 per hour per child. To register your kiddos, sign up at the Rock on Sunday or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CONSTRUCTION NEWS: The Fire Marshall has signed off on the final items we needed to address and we have final occupancy. Praise God! Also, the first pads of concrete were poured yesterday on the new parking lot.
BLUE VALLEY PANTRY: Smile, Jesus loves you! Give someone else a bright smile and a little of Jesus love. This Sunday is the last Sunday for TOOTHPASTE for the Pantry.
Blessings on your weekend.
