Do you want to know the most frequently asked question I’ve heard since Pastor Steve announced that I would bethe next campus Pastor in Sandown?  Any guesses?  It’s been, ”are you nervous?”  The answer…. “yes”.  But even more than being nervous, I am excited. This certainly wasn’t part of my plans but then I’ve learned over time that God has a way of re-directing my steps to His perfect will and timing.  Have I always been obedient? No, but as I get older, it’s becoming easier because He has been faithful.   Another thing I’ve learned is that ,I don’t take a step forward untiI go down on my knees. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us !


I want to thank Lisa Post and all the volunteers that helped to make our first Family Movie night in Sandown so much fun ! ( Did you know, that thank to Rick Russell, we watched the movie on the BIG screen? It was awesome !) There were games and prizes, free pop corn and candy and the Grand Prize drawing of the night, of FREE movie tickets, went to Jackie Carey. We can’t wait until our next movie night on July 28th at 7:30. There will be a special prize given to the youth who brings the most friends.   Mark your calendar for July 28th and join us in Sandown as we provide this fun, free family movie night For Our Community.

I’d like to invite our Sandown congregation to attend a short but important vision casting meeting for our Children’s Ed ministry, NextGen, on July 23rd right after worship. Even if you don’t have young children, you can still play an important role in this area of ministry. Our families are a priority, from those in the nursery to our grandparents. Please join us on the 23rd.

Coming up very soon is Soulfest. Aug 1-5 Rock Church will be taking approx 120 youth and adults to one of the biggest Christian Music Festivals around. The student fee is very affordable which includes camping, food and wristband ticket for the whole event. This year's line-up includes: Jars of Clay, Tenth Avenue North, For King and Country, Rend Collective, Matthews West, Crowder, Sidewalk Prophets, Toby Mac and much, much more.  Click here to register before our space is full. 

I hope you'll join us Sunday!

Pastor Beth
