Rock News: Thanks and Caution!

Thanks to all who offered boxes to help with clean up of the storm damage. We have all we need.
 
Please stay far back from the building, as there is loose glass that could slip out and fall to the ground at any time. We do not want anyone to pick up glass off the ground until the third-floor shattered windows are removed.
 
We’ve had people graciously volunteer time and materials to help with clean up. If you would like to add your name to the list, you can respond here or text Danna at 402-643-5085.

Rock News: Help Needed!

Forever family, we suffered some storm damage with a number of broken windows in our cafe area. We have an immediate need for small to medium sized boxes to collect the broken glass. If you have some you can share with us, please text Danna Seevers at 402-643-5085 or respond to this email. Thank you!

Join us before the service this Sunday, April 17 for our annual Easter breakfast. Starting at 9:00, our youth will be serving a breakfast of eggs, bacon, cinnamon rolls, and fruit. No tickets are required, but your generous donations are appreciated as they raise funds for their trip to the National Youth Gathering. We’re thankful to Thrivent Financial for a community action grant to help with the costs of the breakfast.

Consider making a donation via  our envelope wall fundraiser!  We would love to have every envelope filled by Easter Sunday  (empty envelope wall on the day we celebrate the empty tomb!) Simply choose an envelope and give the corresponding amount (in dollars $$$) marked on the envelope. Fill your envelope and drop in the box! There are literally a hundred ways to give. No donation is too small! Questions? Contact Jen Axt by email: jen.axt@gmail.com or phone: (308) 631-7065.  Thank you for supporting our youth!

Let the youth egg your house! Back by popular demand!  Easter is ONLY 3 weeks away.  Send some Easter love to friends, family, grandchildren, neighbors, children whose house we can “egg.”  You will find candy filled eggs in your yard Easter morning! We will leave a personalized message on the door.  Proceeds will help send The Rock Youth to the LCMS National Youth Gathering in July! 

On the evening of April 16, 2022, our stealthy youth will come to your home (or the home of a friend/family/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! $15 per dozen eggs, $25 for 2 dozen, $35 for 3 dozen, $45 for 4 dozen, $55 for 5 dozen.

Please contact Jen Axt (308) 631-7065 by text/phone or by email: jen.axt@gmail.com with questions. We accept payment by cash, check, or Venmo (@Jen-Axt) by April 15, 2021. Fill in your order at this link.
