- Rev. Dr. Fungchatou Lo will be a guest preacher this Sunday, Nov. 4 at The Rock. Rev. Lo and his family are serving the Lord in Thailand through Mission of Christ Network. Fung’s primary ministry is to improve the theological training that is currently going on with the Hmong pastors and leaders in Southeast Asia, where there are over two million Hmong who still don’t know Jesus.

- The Rock is planning a day trip to tour Mission Central in Mapleton, Iowa on Saturday, November 17, 2018. Mission Central is a training center and supporting agency for missionaries who have to raise 100% of their own support. There are several very interesting places to see there such as the roadside chapel, the Barn with many artifacts and worship area, Ministry Center, and the new Creation Theater. We will be treated to a free homemade hot lunch There is no cost for this trip except fuel for your car, as we will be carpooling. To find out more about Mission Central, visit their website at www.missioncentral.us.
If you have not been contacted about registering for this trip, please call Mary Kropf at 712-269-2035, or see her and Bob in the Cafe after church on Nov. 4 if you wish to go. We need to get you registered. The free Mission Central lunch registration cutoff date is absolutely Nov. 11. You may still register to go on the trip after that date, but you would need to bring your own sack lunch. It has been asked if you may bring someone who isn’t a member of The Rock, such as grown children or other family and friends. Yes, you may! They need to be registered with Mary and Bob for the trip and hot lunch, as well. There will be a brief meeting in the cafe after church this Sunday (Nov. 4) so that we can answer questions and hand out maps to those going to Mission Central.
