What's Happening Block 3

Hello, Rock Flock!

Adam Brown will be speaking this Sunday on "True Sabbath Rest, Pt. 2". The reading is Hebrews 4:1–13.

Prayer focus – for God's work throughout the world (Matthew 28:19-20); for our missionaires in Zambia, Rich & Laurie Weiandt; in Mozambique, John & Alysse Stavropoulos.

Sunday School children (ages JK to grade 4): this Sunday is the last Sunday that activity bags and a small snack are provided, as the children's classes commence again next Sunday, September 11.

Please keep in your prayers ...

* Our elders, deacons, and all our Rock church family

* The Raymer and Bartley families in the recent passing of Eleanor's and Leslie's mothers, who are now in the presence of Jesus

* Ed and Marge Kuruliak: Ed's critical health concerns and the impact on Marjorie and their family
