Join us at 5:30 on Christmas Eve for our worship service of carols, prayers, and a message. We won’t gather for a Christmas Day service.
The Directors and Ambassadors at the Rock are grateful for your willingness to adapt to our frequently-changing COVID-19 worship precautions. Last week, the City of Seward passed an ordinance requiring face coverings in public indoor spaces when groups of 10 or more people gather, including in churches. Aligning our worship practices with this ordinance, face coverings will be required for anyone aged 5 years or older, with exceptions for those with some health conditions. Our face covering practice will apply to in-person worship and all other activities at The Rock until the ordinance is amended or no longer in effect. Please keep in mind that we will continue offering an online worship alternative.
Thanks for cooperating with our local health and policy-making officials who are endeavoring to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. As we all walk through this time together, let us continue to walk in the Lord.
The Rock’s Advent Challenge with Heifer International: Help us meet our goal of raising enough funds to provide 10 sheep for families in developing countries. 10 sheep X $120/sheep = $1200. To learn more, go to heifer.org.
Attending in-person and want to give? Include a note with your cash or check telling us it’s for our Advent Challenge.
Attending online and want to give?
- You can write a check to “The Rock Church” with a note that says it’s for the Heifer Project, then mail it to the church: The Rock Church, PO Box 199, Seward, NE 68434
- Or make a donation online through our InFaith portal at this link. When you’ve completed the donation in that portal, send an email to email@example.com telling us that you gave online for the Heifer Project, including your name, the date you gave, and the amount. This will allow our treasurer to make sure it gets designated correctly.
Would you be interested in volunteering to serve lunch or dinner at the Peoples’ City Mission in Lincoln? They have a lot of open dates over the next few weeks. Contact Jen Janousek at JenJanousek@yahoo.com OR 402-499-3512 if you would like to join a group from The Rock volunteering.
Tom and Sue Briggs will be leading a Bible study at The Rock for parents based on the book and video series “Parenting from the Tree of Life” by Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo, starting on Sunday, January 17, from 5-6:30. (Childcare will not be available)
Our December item for the Blue Valley food pantry is tuna. The collection box is in the Rock Cafe. Thanks for being a blessing to the community in this way!
View The Rock’s service each week from home!
We will continue to provide viewing options on Facebook and YouTube for those who need to or prefer to worship from home at this time.
We’re so glad you join us for worship in whatever way you do, and we look forward to being together again as a Forever Family!
YogaFaith is offering both in person classes and online classes. Class offerings are as follows: All Level YogaFaith – Tuesday and Thursday nights at 5:30 pm and Restorative Candlelight YogaFaith is every Sunday night at 7:00 pm. To stay 6 feet apart, we are limiting the number of people in the room to 6 (including Sara and Erika) so you will have to register in advance for an in-person class. Please click on this link to sign up for a class. If you would like to take the class online please email Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will give you instructions! As always please check our Facebook page for more information. https://www.facebook.com/YogaFaith-Seward-256010628294784/
