Good morning, afternoon and evening! Hope everyone is good and settled into the routine of school. Football officially kicks off soon, just have to pray for football weather to quickly follow! Praying for a great season to all those involved in the many things going on right now. Football, softball, band, and then ACADEMICS! Probably missed some but praying either way for God to be glorified in all we say, do and think.
Last night we continued our series "The WHY and the HOW of the What of The Rock SM." Simply put, What are we here for? Why are we here for that reason? How will we ever hope to accomplish that 'What?' Big questions personally and a big question for our ministry. Peace and direction seems to happen when clarity exists. As we understand the what, why and how we can just live. Clarity helps so much. So this month we're simply re-visiting all of these things as we do each August. Why are we here, why does it matter and how does that even help? This year we're approaching it by looking at 4 huge things....The Bible, Jesus, The Church, and us actually Walking. How and Why will these things helps us do the What. By the way, the WHAT is simple: Know Christ and Make Christ Known.
Attached is the sermon from last night as Andrew led us to better understand how and why Christ is so important to every "what" in our life.
September 4th - Kick off night with snow cones after a short FOCUS explanation.
September 8th - Meet & Greet: come and meet the leaders who pour into your students each week. Also a great time to learn the why's, what's and how's of our ministry. Also....a great time to bring some folks you know who are yet to be plugged into The Rock SM. Also.....an opportunity to go ahead and register for our Winter and Summer Retreat at a discounted price. Special price for that day only.
Have a great weekend and we'll see everyone Sunday!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
