The Board of Blue Valley Community Action Partnership voted on Tuesday to pursue a space at The Rock for some of their Seward County services. Visit our website at this link to access a document with some background on the proposed space arrangements at The Rock and conversations that have occurred thus far between BVCA and The Rock’s Directors.
The Directors would value your feedback and welcome your questions about this proposed arrangement. You are invited to share feedback after church on Sunday, March 21, or you may email Scott Seevers, Congregational President, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next Directors meeting for The Rock is scheduled for Tuesday, March 23rd, and this will be the major item on the agenda. Your feedback will be shared with all the directors at The Rock. Thanks for participating in the conversation about this opportunity.
We hope you’ll stick around after the service this Sunday, March 21 for another Forever Family meal. We’ll have a baked potato bar set up with lots of toppings, and we’ll provide all plates, utensils, etc. Please bring some dessert to share.
Let The Rock egg your house (or someone else’s) just in time for Easter. On the evening of April 3, 2021 we will come to your home (or the home of a friend or neighbor) and hide 12 Easter Eggs in the yard. There will be 11 candy-filled eggs and 1 empty egg as a reminder of the empty tomb! $10 per dozen eggs
Please contact jen axt (308) 631-7065 by text/phone or by email: email@example.com
Payment by cash, check, or venmo (@Jen-Axt) by March 29, 2021. Please provide the following information: Purchaser’s name and phone number; family and address of “the egging”; # of dozen eggs to be delivered; any message to be delivered with the eggs (there will be a flyer explaining the fundraiser left on the door).
Plan now to join us on Easter morning, April 4, for Easter breakfast before the service starting at 9 a.m. No tickets are required—instead, we will collect a free will donation to help fund our teens and leaders who will attend the 2022 National Lutheran youth gathering in Houston, TX.
Please join us right after worship on Sunday, April 25 to celebrate Nicodemus Comfort Dog’s 5th birthday! You can greet Nico, enjoy a cupcake, and visit with the Comfort Dog Team. Also, please plan to stay for a short meeting to learn more about all the ways God works through Nico and his team and how you can be a part of it. There are a number of ways that you can help. We need more Handlers (people trained to be on the leash and take Nico on walks and to ministry opportunities, Ministry Partners (people that go with Nico and a Handler to provide assistance), and Care Givers and back up Care Givers (trained as Handlers and they keep Nico in their home on a full time or part time basis). There will be lots of time to ask questions! Please contact Randy Newsome at firstname.lastname@example.org and 402-643-6595 if you have any questions before the meeting.
Attention high school students who are part of the classes of 2022, 2023, 2024, AND 2025! If you are interested in attending the National Youth Gathering in Houston in 2022, please contact Jen Axt (308) 631-7065 by text or phone, email@example.com by email, or join The Rock LCMS Youth Gathering Facebook page.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in learning how to manage the audio-visual, livestream, and lighting console on Sunday mornings. We’ll teach you everything you need to know! Contact Pastor Mike, Tim Moll, or Shane Sloup.
Our March item for the Blue Valley food pantry is peanut butter. The collection box is in the Rock Cafe. Thanks for being a blessing to the community in this way! You can see our Blue Valley Pantry item schedule on our website.
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!
Join Erika Rolf (RYT-200) or Sara Moll (RYT-200) for Christian YogaFaith classes at The Rock! Class offerings are as follows: All Level YogaFaith – Tuesday and Thursday nights at 5:30 pm, Restorative Candlelight YogaFaith every Sunday night at 7:00 pm and YogaFaith Flow and Go is offered twice a month on Saturday mornings at 8:00-8:45 a.m. Please see our Facebook page for a full calendar and more information. https://www.facebook.com/YogaFaith-Seward-256010628294784/
The Seward City Council repealed the ordinance that required masks to be worn in all public buildings, including places of worship. As a result, our mask policy at YogaFaith-Seward has also changed. Please feel free to wear your mask if you would like to, but masks are not required to enter The Rock or to practice Yoga at YogaFaith-Seward. Class size will no longer be limited to 6 students per class and we are no longer requiring that you sign up in advance for the Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday classes.
However, we will limit Restorative YogaFaith classes to 8 students per class because of the limited number of props that we have available. Please continue to use Sign Up Genius for that class only. We will still be offering online classes for people that want to take our YogaFaith classes at home!
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!
If you have any questions about The Rock, need information about our events, or anything else, please contact us at email@example.com. Also, if you have a prayer request to submit during the week (or anytime) send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our prayer warriors will receive these, as well as Pastor Mike Meyer.
