Rock News – We’re Moving!

Dear Friends:

Here’s your Rock news:

NEW HOME FOR THE ROCK:  Our first worship gathering at the Rock (237 S. Third Street) will be Sunday, October 25 at 10:00 a.m.!!  Here’s what you need to know:

237 S. Third Street is the old Seward Middle School located just south of Main Street (Highway 34).  There is a new bank under construction next door.
Parking will be a little bit of a challenge for a while until the parking lot is completed.  The best place to park for now is along Third Street.
Worship will be on the 3rd Level.  You can enter on the south side or on the north side and head upstairs.  If you wish to use the elevator, go to the south entrance and enter the door on the left (west).  You will go directly to the elevator.  Rock leaders will be outside and inside guiding you.
Come early (there will be cookies and coffee by around 9:30) to give everyone plenty of time to get parked, look around and get settled for worship.  We’ll probably start a few minutes late to allow time for those who forget and go to the Lied Senior Center.
Plan for things to be kind of messy (literally and figuratively).  Not everyone is or will be completed with the renovations so things will be a little unfinished.  Also, we’ll be learning how everything works so it will all be kind of disorganized.
After worship, leave those chairs alone!!  There won’t be anything to tear down after worship.  You can just relax and visit with your forever family.

LOTS OF WORK DAYS THIS WEEK.  Please come help if you can anytime this week to help get the Rock ready for this Sunday.  There are a lot of little things to get done that will go quickly with lots of help (lots of cleaning, unpacking chairs, hauling trash, etc. ).  Come the whole time or just part of the time any of these days:

Monday – 5:30 pm to 8pm or so
Tuesday – 5:30 pm to 8pm or so
Wednesday – 5:30 pm to 8pm or so
Thursday – 5:30 pm to 8pm or so
Saturday – 8:30 am to noon or so (we’ll do some outdoor cleanup too)

FAITH INK & STEPPING STONES AT THE ROCK:  Stepping Stones and Faith Inkubators will continue to meet at the new Rock this Wednesday evening from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

WOOF WOOF:  That’s dog lingo for thanks to everyone who stayed for lunch last Sunday.  Over $1,800 was raised to help with the costs of a comfort dog for the Rock.  Want to know more about what a comfort dog does?  Click here:  www.lutheranchurchcharities. org and go to the K-9 Ministry link.  Or, click here to check out Moses the comfort dog’s facebook page: MosesComfortDog.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING MEETING ON SUNDAY:  Parents and youth who have committed to attend the National Youth Gathering should plan to attend a meeting next Sunday at 1pm at the new Rock.  We’ll be discussing travel, fundraising and other items.

APPRECIATE YOUR PASTOR:  We’ve been a little distracted with all the stuff going on with the move, but don’t forget that October is pastor appreciation month.  If you haven’t already, drop Pastor Mike a note and let him know how thankful we are that he and his family are serving with us.

Blessings on your week.
