Happening at The Rock

Friday, March 29, 6:30, Good Friday service

Sunday, March 31, 9:00, Easter breakfast

Let’s help send our youth to the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans next July! Join us before the service this Sunday, March 31 for our annual Easter breakfast. Starting at 9:00, our youth will be serving a breakfast of eggs, bacon, cinnamon rolls, and fruit. No tickets are required, but your generous donations are appreciated as they raise funds for their trip to the National Youth Gathering.

Let the youth egg your house! On the evening of March 30, 2024, our stealthy youth will come to your home (or the home of a friend/family/neighbor) and hide 12 Easter Eggs in the yard. There will be 11 candy-filled eggs and 1 empty egg as a reminder of the empty tomb! $15 per dozen hidden eggs; $10 for each additional dozen. Go to this link to sign up.

News from the Nicodemus Comfort Dog team: Greetings with Peace and the Grace of our Lord from the Nicodemus Comfort Dog Team.

The Ministry has been operating without a Back-up Caregiver that is supposed to be in place with this Ministry. The Back-up Caregiver is in place to give needed time off to the Primary Caregiver, which has been Randy and Marcia Newsome for the last 6 ½ years.

Recent events have made it very clear to Randy and Marcia that a Back-up Caregiver is very necessary for the forward motion of the Team’s service to our community and to our own church. The role of the Back-up Caregiver is the same as the Primary Caregiver, only a much shorter time commitment. The Back-up Caregiver cares for the needs of Nico, getting him ready to go out to service when Randy and Marcia have scheduled time off. The Nico fund would set up that person or family with all needed supplies and training as to Nico’s verbal and house commands.

The Back-up Caregiver does NOT have to be a member of the Rock Church or even a Lutheran, but must be a follower of Jesus. Policy from the Lutheran Church Charities (LCC), the head of the Comfort Dog Ministry who set the rules and commands for all the Comfort Dogs across the U.S.A., has changed.  Another pet within the Back-up Caregiver home is allowed but still not preferred.

What the Nico Team is asking is that you sit with our Lord in prayer, to ask for a name that might be a possibility for a Back-up Caregiver for our Ministry. Please get that name with contact information to one of Nico’s Team members or one of the Rock’s leadership members, or submit it to our church office. Thank you for your prayers and help.
