Happening at The Rock

We had 450 people visit our Trunk or Treat event, led by our young adults group on Tuesday! We are so grateful for the energy and preparation they put into welcoming our community to The Rock.

The young adults group meets on Monday evenings at 7 p.m. at Brevin and Michaela Sloup’s house! (1616 Eastridge Ave) Contact them for more information.

A four week men’s Bible study “Working for the Man Upstairs” is being held on Saturdays through November 18 at 7:00 a.m. in the Rock cafe. Contact Randy Newsome with any questions.

Help with the November Food Shelf Challenge!  On Friday, November 10 from 11am-2pm Concordia students will be out and about in the Seward community collecting nonperishable food shelf donations. This service project is one of many happening that day as part of the annual Beautiful Feet Mission Conference taking place at Concordia University, Nebraska that weekend.

If you live in Seward and you’d like to contribute food items, please put any donations tied up in a plastic bag and leave on your front steps. Items collected will be distributed between St. John’s Christ Cupboard and Concordia’s Help Your Shelf.

By collecting 500 items in this November Food Shelf Challenge, Concordia will receive $500 (from the Thrivent Member Network – Nebraska Region) for Concordia’s Help Your Shelf food shelf on campus.

If you have any questions or if students miss picking up your contribution, please contact Julie Hermann at  [email protected] or 402-643-7354. Thank you for helping provide for those with food insecurity in our community!
