A new women’s Bible study will start soon. Starting July 13, Lori Moravec and Jennifer Janousek will be leading a study using the book “Joy: A Study of Philippians” by Deb Burma, and the study will meet at the Janousek’s home on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. until the study concludes on August 31. Contact Lori at [email protected] or Jennifer at [email protected] with questions or for more information. Anyone interested in attending should purchase the book at this link.

The Rock is pleased to announce that we received a grant from the Esther 4:14 National Grant Program offered by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to upgrade our media to help meet the increased audio-visual needs we have in the sanctuary and for live streaming. We look forward to upgrading some of our equipment soon. 

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in learning how to manage the audio-visual, livestream, and lighting console on Sunday mornings. We’ll teach you everything you need to know! Contact Pastor Mike, Tim Moll, or Shane Sloup. 

Powering the Ministry of The Rock: As The Rock approaches the end of our fiscal year, it appears annual general fund contributions will be lower than budgeted.  Directors will share final financial information at the July congregational meeting, along with a proposed budget for the next fiscal year.  As always, we are thankful for both your generosity and your stewardship of all God has provided. Learn more about ways you can support ministry at The Rock, online or in person, at


Blue Valley Community Action Partnership Updates:  A contractor is engaged and preparing a bid for construction on the lower level of The Rock.  Once the bid is approved, work will commence on the improvements. The train club that was using the space has cleared their materials from the area and a crew of volunteers has removed the lockers from the downstairs hallway.  In exchange for a small donation, many of the lockers were picked up by members of the congregation or community.


New Home for Mowers:  The Rock’s mowing and snow removal equipment will reside in a new home this summer.  The Directors authorized the purchase of a 10×12 shed to house the equipment, some of which was inconveniently housed away from the church property.
