Plan to stay after the service this Sunday, July 16 for our annual voters’ meeting. We will elect leaders, adopt a ministry plan, and adopt a budget. Everyone is welcome to stay, but only members can vote. Want to be a member? Not sure if you’re a member or a voting member? See Pastor Loeschen, Jake Eckles, or any Ambassador. Later this year, voting members will vote to call our next pastor.

  • The 2023-24 ministry plan is available HERE
  • Minutes from the June Directors’ meeting and an archive of leadership meeting notes are available HERE

Join us for a Pre-Call Meeting with President Snow next Thursday, July 20, at 7pm at the Rock. We will meet in the worship center. President Snow will have a presentation to provide us more information about the call process and his assessments of our needs and will entertain questions. The meeting is open to everyone in the congregation.

Join us for a special time of prayer Sunday, August 27, praying for the call process, our future pastor, and The Rock during the vacancy period. We’ll gather in room 211 (near the stairs) from 9:15-9:50. All are welcome! 

Please keep the call committee members in your prayers: Ross Briggs, Lori Bruns, Emma Dannehl, Jake Eckles, Marcus Gubanyi, Tim Moll, Matt Myers, Brenda Rief, Andrea Sloup, and our circuit visitor, Rev. David Palomaki. Please also pray for our vacancy pastor, Rev. David Loeschen.

Rev. Dr. Hans Trinklein is moving to Seward to teach at CUNE and is trying to find housing. He is working this year under a one-year contract so he is not ready to purchase at this point. If you have information on rentals (three bedrooms prefered), please contact him at [email protected].

Our July item for the Blue Valley food pantry is canned meat (but save the tuna for December). Thanks for being a blessing to the community in this way! You can see our Blue Valley Pantry item schedule on our website. Year-round they also collect the following: pasta, pasta meal mixes, instant potato side dishes, and mashed potatoes.
