What an amazing weekend we just had,  with just shy of 50 people becoming members of Rock Church Ministries at each of our 5 services, 25 of those new members at our Plaistow campus alone! It was a great way to celebrate the end of our sermon series talking about what it truly means to be of one heart and mind, as the family of God.  We have heard that there are still some folks who want to take membership, but were not able to be with us last week and so we want to offer that opportunity again in the next few weeks. If you weren't able to do so last weekend, but are interested in taking the important step of church membership, please reach out to Lynette at lynette@rock-church.org or write it on your connection card this Sunday so that we can connect with you and the necessary arrangements.   

On top of that this past Sunday we had our first in-service full immersion baptisms at our Rock Church Amesbury campus.  There 6 of our brothers and sisters who have been amazingly transformed by Christ followed His lead and received baptism in front of their friends and family. God is good...all the time! We plan to offer in-service immersion baptism at each of our sites in the future, but the next opportunity will be on August 20th after services at our annual church barbecue at Camp Tasker in Newton, NH.  If you are interested in being baptized in August, it isn't too early to let us know now! Email Lynette to let her know or feel free to write it on your connection card and drop it in the offering on Sunday.

PLAISTOW OLD HOME DAY - I know it hasn't seemed like it recently, but summer is almost officially here and Plaistow Old Home Day is a great way to kick it off!  Old Home Day is quickly coming up on Saturday, June 17th (that's only nine days away!) and we are once again looking to reach out in our community and be a light to those around us. As we have for many years past, we will have a booth where will be give away water and other goodies and just talk with and bless our neighbors. We need help getting ready on Friday night before, as well as at the booth on Saturday from 9am to 3pm, in shifts of a couple of hours each.  We would really appreciate your sacrifice and willingness to be for our community. Feel free to email me and let me know if you're able to help Friday night with preparation or Saturday at the booth during Old Home Day. 

I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will tell you that we have a special two week sermon series starting this Sunday that you won't want to miss.  It is about being for our community and sharing with our neighbors what we are FOR, rather than what we are against as the body of Christ. This is going to be a powerful movement throughout the summer & beyond and I hope you can join us this Sunday to be part of it.  

We hope to see you then!
