Wear green as we wrap up Christmas in July at The Rock! We took the month of July to remind ourselves of God’s great gifts to us. You can listen to a playlist of some of our worship band’s favorite Christmas songs at this link. To really get into the feeling of the Christmas season, we’d like to have everyone wear green clothing to the service on Sunday, August 1 as we wrap up the series. If you’re watching online, dress up anyway and send us a picture! Remember that you can always catch up with our services on Facebook and YouTube if you’re away or prefer to join from home.
As part of our Christmas in July celebration, we are having a special Christmas Giving Project. On Sunday, August 1 we will take a door offering to support Blue Valley Community Action’s work with those in need. If you’ll be out of town, you can mail a check to us for that project.
Help support our teens and leaders headed to next year’s National Youth Gathering. The Rock youth will be running the burger stand at the Seward Farmers’ Market again on August 4! Burger or polish dog + chips + drink for $5.00. Give the family cook the night off and come out and support the youth group as they raise funds to attend the 2022 LCMS National Youth Gathering in Houston! Thanks to all who have supported the youth this month.
There will be a brief youth parents meeting after church service on August 22nd. We will go over timelines, plans, fundraising.
You can make a donation to their travel fund at any time in the year to come. Just mark your donation as “youth gathering fund” and the money will be added to the group’s account.
The St. John Lutheran Women’s Missionary League invites the women of The Rock to their annual salad supper on Tuesday, August 3 at 6:30. The speaker will be Rev. John Mehl, who will speak about his work with Mission of Christ Network. The salads will be provided by the LWML ladies. (Masks are not required, but are welcome if you prefer. Their fellowship hall is often cool, so you may want a sweater or light jacket.)
