I love the summer! It’s just a time when everything seems a little slower and a little easier. It can be a time to relax, unwind and just enjoy the beautiful weather God is bringing to us. But even though I love to kick back during the summer, opportunities for outreach and blessings don’t need to take a break. As you’ve probably noticed recently, summer is in fact one of our busiest outreach times.
In fact, we had one of our best attended men’s events ever on Monday night, and it was great! Right around 200 guys gathered together to eat lots of meat, enjoy great company and hear former Red Sox player Rico Petrocelli talk about his Christian walk. The sheer volume of meet really was spectacular and we need to give a big shout out to all the guys working the grill – it was awesome!
Most importantly though, we were able to share that time with many men who had never attended a Rock Church event (and maybe never even ANY church event) before. Let us join together in prayer that these men encountered God in a way they never had before and will make the decision to start on a faith journey that will forever impact their lives and the lives of their families. Hallelujah!
Another great opportunity to gather is coming up on Saturday evening at the One Response event in Plaistow. This is a night for believers from all different churches to come together and respond to the amazing things God has done for us. It is a great opportunity for the whole family to come out together and worship. Doors open at 6pm and the program will begin at 6:30pm. For more information, visit www.1onelove.org or email Pastor Dan Elliott at DanE@rock-church.org.
Lastly, I want to ask you to lift up our Honduras mission team who will leave for the 5th trip to serve at My Little Lambs Orphanage and a few other ministries in Honduras on Tuesday, July 18th. Please keep the entire team and their families staying behind in prayer.
I look forward to worshiping together on Sunday as we continue our Biblical Life Hacks sermon series studying the Book of Proverbs. Until then, have a blessed rest of the week!
