Please Note!

Pastoral Search: The Elders are serving as the Pastoral Search Team and they value your continued prayer in the process of searching for a lead pastor/teaching elder for the Rock.

Gilbert Mwizerwa and Rosine Uwamariya are happy to announce the birth of Noah on November 27, 2016, a brother to Nissi!

The Children’s Ministry is holding a sock, undie & PJ drive for the Dewburys. They will distribute these items to foster children who don't have any personal belongings. Currently they are in need of sizes 5 - teen (since most children come from abusive situations they request NO nightgowns please). And remember the temperature in Belize is very warm so lightweight fabric is best. Deadline is February 12th.

The Church Board officers for 2017 are:

Chair - Dan Dewit

Vice Chair - Wayne Foster

Recorder - Jeff Morgan

“Guess who’s coming to visit?” is running from January through March.
