Forever Family Lunch! Join us after the service on Sunday, June 27 for a potluck lunch. Please bring a main dish and a side dish to share. We will provide dessert, drinks, and table service. 

Special Saturday service on July 3: This year, July 4 falls on a Sunday so we will have our weekly service on Saturday, July 3 at 10, and will not gather on Sunday morning. This allows us to open our parking lot to the community for the events at the city square. Busy on Saturday or away from Seward this summer? Keep up with The Rock’s services on Facebook and YouTube. We’re so glad  you join us for worship in whatever way you do!

How is it going? We are saved to serve! As we seek God’s guidance for The Rock in the upcoming weeks and months, we would love to hear how you are doing. If you were at in-person worship this morning and picked up a paper copy of the questions, or if you want to print the form (linked in the comments), you can turn in your responses on paper in the Rock café. If you would rather submit your responses electronically, please complete the online survey at the link below. There are only three questions to complete. We will be gathering responses from now until June 20.  Pastor and The Rock leaders will use the information to help make plans for the new fiscal year of The Rock, which begins on July 1. Thank you! 

Let’s keep in contact! Our leadership team is updating our records of everyone’s contact information. This helps us keep track of who is related to whom and how we can best contact you. Fill in our form at to help us with our record keeping. 

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.

 YogaFaith News:  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 YogaFaith every Sunday night at 7:00 pm and Flow and Go is offered twice a month on Saturday mornings from 8:00-8:45 a.m.  

YogaFaith is offering a 15-minute YogaFaith stretch class starting June 14. The class information is as follows: Sonrise YogaFaith is a 15-minute yoga class focused on stretching, prayer and God’s word. Join them once a week or repeat the session every morning (you set your own schedule). A new class will be available every Monday morning (Sara and Erika will take turns) and can be used anytime for the entire week.  We recommend it for use first thing in the morning, but when you do it is up to you! The cost for access to the class for the week is $8.00 (or $7.00 if you use your 5-class pass) and it is included in our monthly unlimited class pass.

Please see their Facebook page for a full calendar and more information.

Help support our teens and leaders headed to next year’s National Youth Gathering! Our teens will be running the hamburger stand at the Wednesday Seward Farmers’ markets on July 21 and August 4. It’s a great way to get a quick and easy dinner and to support our youth. (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.)

Our June item for the Blue Valley food pantry is just-add-water pancake mix (please avoid the type that requires added milk, egg, oil, etc). The collection box is in the Rock Cafe. Thanks for being a blessing to the community in this way! You can see our Blue Valley Pantry item schedule on our website. Once July starts, we’ll be collecting canned meat (but keep your donations of tuna for December). 

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.
