Heb 12:24-25  “And let us consider how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, not forsaking our meeting together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

PS:  Please Review Our Precautionary Measures for This Sunday:

We will take precautionary measures to limit the spread of the virus and keep everyone healthy.  If you plan to join us in the sanctuary, we’re asking that you follow the current recommended social distancing practices and CDC guidelines.  If you need to review the guidelines as they pertain to Communities of Faith prior to attending on Sunday, see link:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/faith-based.html

In addition, we will adhere to the applicable May 15, 2020 Guidelines for Places of Worship that were submitted to the State as a variance to State guidelines by our Douglas County Commissioners and approved by Tri-County Health.  This includes the recommendation of limiting the number of people to 50% of the fire code capacity of the facility (including staff, volunteers and congregants) and adhering to current recommended state physical distancing practices, which may further reduce recommended capacity.  The intent of The Rock staff is to help keep everyone safe and healthy while providing the opportunity to gather and worship together.  Please help us keep everyone safe and healthy!

For those that are considered high-risk including the elderly and those with specific underlying medical conditions, we would recommend that you continue to shelter at home or take additional precautions if planning to attend in person.  If anyone has COVID-19 symptoms, we would ask that you remain at home.

We love you!
Pastors Mike & Kristi and your Rock Staff family
