Rock News

Our VBS and Rock Youth events, held June 12-15, are fast approaching! We need your help to make these events happen! We could use a few extra hands for VBS (9 -11 a.m.) and Rock Youth (6:30.-8:30 p.m.). 

We will be doing servant events with the Rock Youth kids, and one is supporting the children of Guatemala with school supplies. Notebooks, folders, pencils, and colored pencils are needed for 34 kids. There will be a donation bin in the cafe. (Any extra will be donated to BVCA.)

We would also love to borrow several items from you, including outside games, alpine trees, and camping chairs. There are 2 poster boards in the cafe with requested snack items such as s’more ingredients, fruit, pop, and popcorn. This is a great way to support this ministry if you are unable to volunteer. 

We will be decorating the church on June 11th after worship. We would love your help, and if a few strong guys could hang around to help move chairs that would be appreciated! 

Sign up through the form below or find Heather Eckles on Sunday with questions. Remember: even if you work during the day, there are still ways you can help with this event and contribute to the faith growth of the Rock’s children and teens!

The Guatemala Mission Team is selling products to raise funds for their trip this summer. Any product bought through the cause team website will be donated to the Mission trip.  The Guatemala Mission trip products include the latitude and longitude of Amatitlan, Guatemala, the place where they will be serving.  The sale for shirts and hoodies will run through June 5. CLICK HERE TO SHOP and support the team.

Please pray for the call process for our new pastor. A call committee has been set up and has started the process. A projected timeline of the call process is available HERE. (Please note that this is a “best case scenario” timeline and the process can take longer to complete. We expect an 8-12 month process.) Pastor David Loeschen, who currently serves part time at Messiah, Lincoln, will be serving The Rock as vacancy pastor beginning June 1.  Pastor Loeschen will assist with worship approximately twice per month, especially on Sundays when we have communion.  We’ll fill in with others on the Sundays when he cannot be here.

As part of the call process, we would like all congregation members to fill in the survey linked here: We need your responses by June 11. Thank you!
