It’s almost time for Stepping Stones and FaithInk to start again. As always, we’ll kick off the season with a potluck picnic in the park. Join us September 8 at 6:30 at Plum Creek park at the tennis court picnic shelter. Instruction starts the following Wednesday, September 15. Learn more and sign your kids up on our website: Stepping Stones for children ages 3 to grade 4 / FaithInk confirmation class for grades 5 to 8 / Godparents groups for grades 9-12. If anyone would like more information on potentially helping with Stepping Stones, email email@example.com for more information. Stepping Stones isn’t just run by teachers--classroom helpers would be a huge help and blessing to our teachers! Stepping Stones is also looking for donations for supplies. We are currently in need of new crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and play-doh. A donation box is located in the café. You can also make monetary donations for our supply needs and future projects. (Include a note with your donation that says “stepping stones” so we know where to designate it.) On behalf of Stepping Stones we appreciate the generosity and thank you in advance for your support!
Saved to Serve: Directors of The Rock approved the annual Ministry Plan on Tuesday, August 24. The 2021-22 plan is now available for your review and comment. (Access a draft of the ministry plan at this link.) It will be presented for congregational approval on Sunday, September 12 after the 10 a.m. worship gathering. Comments are welcome, either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance of the meeting, or in-person during the meeting on September 12.
Our September item for the Blue Valley food pantry is boxed meals. (Mac and cheese, hamburger helper, etc.) 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.
