Hi Friends!

June is here and with it comes some nice summer weather, yay! I can't wait to play & serve in our first night of volleyball this evening on the sand court at Rock Church Plaistow. We will be meeting there 6 PM every Monday and Thursday weather permitting throughout the summer. 

Also today we are blowing up the hot tub and testing it out in anticipation of the baptisms in Amesbury this Sunday. Also, this Sunday is Pentecost and we will be taking in new members at all our campuses. Pastor Steve has two more membership classes set up for this Saturday, 10 AM in Sandown and 1PM in Plaistow… so it's not too late if you’d like to find out more about membership. Just email Lynette ASAP if you plan to attend.

We want to lift up some service opportunities coming up this summer.   We will need many volunteers to continue the mission God has called us to as a church - to reach & disciple people for Christ. First, we have Plaistow Old Home Day coming up on June 17 where we have had a booth for over a decade now.  This event is where Rachel and I first met Pastor Steve and others people from The Rock back in 2007.  I remember being impressed with the passion and love of the folks at the booth. It was a non-threatening place to “get a taste” of the Rock before we started attending in 2008.  Please consider helping us in connecting and blessing our neighbors at this wonderful community event. 

It’s funny, I remember mentioning golf that day at the 2007 Plaistow OHD and some of the guys engaged with me about playing.   Now we have our 2nd annual Rock Missions Golf Tournament on June 24th.  We still need folks to play & serve at this great opportunity for connection, fundraising (last year we raised $2500 for our mission fund) and fun.  We are looking for golfers, volunteers, hole sponsors and silent auction donations. Please visit www.rock-church.org/rockgolf for more info.

Also, we have Amesbury days (June 22nd- July 4th). We typically participate in four different events ending with our awesome pancake breakfast in the Pines on July 4.  Here’s the schedule for the events we participate in at Amesbury Days:

June 22nd  5-8 PM Block Party right out in front of Rock Church Amesbury – Activities and booth

June 29th 10AM -2PM Kids Day in the Park Activities and booth

July 3rd Amesbury Fireworks 6-9 PM - Booth

July 4th Pancakes in the Pines 6-11AM (Rock Church event!)

In August we will have our 2nd Camp Rock summer day camp/VBS program at Rock Church Plaistow 8AM-4PM 8/14th - 18th . We will need counselors (16+), counselors in training (freshman and sophomores), station leaders, assistants and general helpers. For more info please visit www.rock-church.org/camprock

If you're interested in helping us with any of these events please contact me.  Have a great day and may God bless you and yours!

Peace & Prosperity,

Pastor Jon (PJ)
