Happening at The Rock


Join us for a potluck lunch after the service on Sunday, December 10. Please bring both a main dish AND a side or dessert to share. We’ll provide the plates, cups, etc.

Bell Ringers Needed! Salvation Army bell ringers are needed at WalMart. On Friday, December 1 there are slots for one bell ringer from 6-7pm and 8-9pm, and then a number of other slots between now and Christmas. Each shift is one hour, and you can ring as a family, as a group of friends, or as an individual. Sign up for a slot through THIS LINK.

Support the Concordia Guatemala Health and Medical Mission Team by eating at La Carreta on Monday, December 4th from 11:00AM-10:00PM. A portion of the sales for the day will be donated to the mission team. Easy way to support the team…eat yummy food and skip doing the dishes!

Interested in serving on a mission trip to Guatemala in the summer of 2024?  The Rock is looking for a team to love and serve the people of Guatemala with a VBS, teen ministry, and women’s ministry.  If you are interested or want to know more information contact Emma Dannehl at [email protected]

We are collecting toys for Christmas donations. Donate new, unwrapped toys for all ages–remember middle & high school kids need gifts, too! We’re also collecting gift wrap/bags and tape.  Collection bins will be in the cafe area and second floor. Please bring all donations by December 17. Benefits local families (Foster Friends).

National Youth Gathering – New Orleans, LA – July 19-23, 2025  It is time to start organizing and fundraising for the next NYG! The event is for 14–19-year-old students. (Must be 14 years old at time of the Gathering OR entering his/her 9th grade year at the time of the Gathering). If your student is interested in attending the 2025 NYG, please contact Jen Janousek ([email protected] or 402-499-3512) and be on the lookout for an informational meeting in January. 

We are excited to announce that the Rock Directory is now open. We are asking you to do two very easy things:

  1. Follow THIS LINK and check if you are in the directory, and if not, e-mail us and we’ll send you a form to fill out so that we can add you. The password currently is “ForeverFamily” but will change from time to time to protect our information.
  2. If you are already in it, go to THIS LINK for instructions on how to setup your login (which we won’t change on you) so that you can update your information and add a photo of your family. (link to Bill’s instructions)

The quality of the directory depends on you updating your information. We’ve gotten several requests for a directory from the Rock Family, and now that it’s available, we hope you will get in, update it and use it. If you have any questions, contact Bill Schranz at [email protected] or Matt Myers at [email protected]

It’s finally time for tuna! Our December item for the Blue Valley food pantry is tuna. 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. 

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.

We are hiring a part-time administrative assistant. The administrative assistant for the church supports the Pastor, Ambassadors, and Directors of The Rock Lutheran Church. This position will enhance the ability for all ministries within the church to grow God’s Kingdom. The Administrative Assistant allows The Rock to focus “…attention to prayer and ministry of the Word…” (Acts 6:4) while providing additional and much needed support and stewardship in the day-to-day operations of the church. This position brings a level of ministry excellence that allows our staff/elected leadership more freedom to concentrate on the needs of people over paper.
