The Seward County Pro-Life Council will again sponsor a Mother’s Day ad with the theme of “Thank you, Mom, for giving me life” to be placed in the Seward Independent on Mother’s Day, May 5. Mary Kropf will be collecting names of mothers, along with a $1 donation for each name, to be listed in the ad. Please indicate whether the person named is living or deceased. All names and donations must be given to Mary by Sunday, April 25 to be included in the ad.

As The Rock enters the final quarter of the fiscal year ending June 30, financial support for the ministry has been strong enough thus far to meet the budget needs and also address some maintenance projects that have arisen.  Since the end of January, weekly contributions have softened and are still trending downward as we enter the spring and summer, typically times when contributions are lower.  While trusting in the Lord’s provision, leaders at The Rock will be keeping a close eye on both expenses and contributions during April, May and June.  As always, we are thankful for both your generosity and your stewardship of all God has provided.

Please join us right after worship on Sunday, April 25 to celebrate Nicodemus Comfort Dog’s 5th Birthday! You can greet Nico, enjoy a cupcake, and visit with the Comfort Dog Team.  Also, please plan to stay for a short meeting to learn more about all the ways God works through Nico and his team and how you can be a part of it. There are a number of ways that you can help.  We need more Handlers (people trained to be on the leash and take Nico on walks and to ministry opportunities, Ministry Partners (people that go with Nico and a Handler to provide assistance), and Care Givers and back up Care Givers (trained as Handlers and they keep Nico in their home on a full time or part time basis).  There will be lots of time to ask questions!  Please contact Randy Newsome at [email protected] and 402-643-6595 if you have any questions before the meeting.

View The Rock’s service each week from home! We will continue to provide viewing options on Facebook and YouTube for those who need to or prefer to worship from home at this time.

Join Erika Rolf (RYT-200) or Sara Moll (RYT-200) for Christian YogaFaith classes at The Rock!  Class offerings are as follows:  All Level YogaFaith – Tuesday and Thursday nights at 5:30 pm, Restorative Candlelight YogaFaith every Sunday night at 7:00 pm and YogaFaith Flow and Go is offered twice a month on Saturday mornings at 8:00-8:45 a.m.  Please see our Facebook page for a full calendar and more information.

The Seward City Council repealed the ordinance that required masks to be worn in all public buildings, including places of worship.   As a result, our mask policy at YogaFaith-Seward has also changed. Please feel free to wear your mask if you would like to, but masks are not required to enter The Rock or to practice Yoga at YogaFaith-Seward.  Class size will no longer be limited to 6 students per class and we are no longer requiring that you sign up in advance for the Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday classes. 

However, we will limit Restorative YogaFaith classes to 8 students per class because of the limited number of props that we have available. Please continue to use Sign Up Genius for that class only. We will still be offering online classes for people that want to take our YogaFaith classes at home!

Please click on this link to sign up for a class. If you would like to take the class online please email Sara at [email protected] and she will give you instructions! 

If you have any questions about The Rock, need information about our events, or anything else, please contact us at [email protected].  Also, if you have a prayer request to submit during the week (or anytime) send it to [email protected]. Our prayer warriors will receive these, as well as Pastor Mike Meyer.
