    The ROCK Youth Group and friends enjoyed a wonderful evening of tubing, skiing, and snow boarding at beautiful Boone Bump (AKA Seven Oaks Recreation Center) Sunday, January 24. 

    A wonderful mix of 36 participants (13 ROCK Youth, 4 friends, 2 younger siblings, 8 parents, and 9 ROCK alumni) engaged in this annual winter wonderland event. Fun was had by all, as kids of all ages tried their hand at the winter arts from 4-8 in the evening.  For those who were unable to attend, keep this in mind as a “must do” activity for next year.

    The ROCK will gather at the church this coming Sunday evening, January 31, at 6:30 for their regular meeting. The annual ROCK Super Bowl Party on February 7 at a location TBD.


Great fun at ROCK Ski Outing to Seven Oaks

Scripture of the Day

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. -- Eph. 4:29-32
