As he shared in Sunday’s service, Pastor Mike has a Divine Call from another congregation. What does this mean and how can we pray for him and his family?
Pray that God’s will for them will be made abundantly clear to the whole family, and that they would know God’s peace while they make their decision. Pastor Mike and his family are traveling to Okeechobee, FL for an official visit to Peace Lutheran Church & School this weekend. Dr. Thad Warren will lead the message time during worship this weekend at The ROCK.
Have you used the GivePlus app to make donations to The Rock? If so, please note that as of the end of January, that app will no longer function. Watch for more information this Sunday.

Replenishing the Building Fund: This year, The Rock has invested over $28,000 on facility-related initiatives for maintenance and improvements, including the Blue Valley partnership building renovation and needed enhancements to the facility and grounds. The Rock’s building fund needs a boost of $15,000 to restore it to previous levels and fund 2021-22 initiatives. If you are in a position to make an additional gift to the Building Fund, large or small, it will bless The Rock’s ministry. We’ve already been blessed to receive $12,1445 toward our goal! Thank you.
You can give to this fund in the offering basket on Sundays, or give online in our Special Projects category. (Indicate “building fund” to designate your gift.)
New snow blower in search of service-minded humans: We have a new, powerful snow blower to clear sidewalks this winter (as well as a smaller unit)! We are in need of volunteers to serve on a side-walk clearing crew. Weekend (for Sundays) and week-day slots are open. Even if you can only help on occasion, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you can help.
Please consider helping send The Rock Youth to the 2022 LCMS National Youth Gathering in Houston, TX! The Rock Youth is holding an envelope donation fundraiser to help send the youth and adult leaders to the LCMSNYG in Houston next summer! 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!
Thank you for considering a financial gift during this holiday season, especially in a time when it is increasingly challenging to be a teenager who follows Jesus. Questions? Contact Jen Axt by email: email@example.com or phone: 308.631.7065
