Christmas Party is December 16th @ 5-7 pm!  Games!  Food!  Fun!  Wear your UGLY SWEATER for a chance to WIN THE UGLY SWEATER CONTEST!  Hope to see you all there. If you would like to bring food or snacks, please let us know on the Facebook event page or on the sign up sheet in the cafe so we can plan. Also, if anyone would like to bring pizza please let Pastor Jim or Donna know.

Children’s Christmas Program is December 23rd @ 10am   The Solid Rock Kids will be sharing the meaning of Christmas on this special Sunday.  Make plans to attend & bring your camera!

  • Parents, please arrive early for the Children’s Christmas Program. Be at church by 9:45. All the children need to get dressed in costumes for the program.  They will be a part of the worship service so please make every effort to be on time.

Women’s Cookie Exchange   You’re invited to a cookie exchange on Sunday, December 23rd at 11:30 am (immediately following our service).  Please see Donna today for more info and to let her know if you are planning to participate. Bake 3 dozen cookies and bring to the church. We will provide containers to all ladies in attendance and divide up the cookies at the church. Please sign up in the café to let us know which cookie you will be bringing.

Celebrate Christ this Christmas Eve!  Our annual Candlelight Service is always a special time. Take an hour away from your busy schedule to remember the Reason for the Season. Come & worship the Christ of CHRISTMAS: this Christmas Eve from 6:30-7:30 pm. Make this special service a family Christmas tradition!

BGMC Coin Collection: Please encourage and support your children in filling their BGMC change boxes with loose coins. The collection will take place throughout the month of December. Funds collected go to support AG Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge. “BGMC is the AG missions program for kids that instills a heart of compassion to reach the lost through praying, giving, and going. All funds raised through BGMC go to meet critical needs around the world such as feeding programs, water wells, Bible schools, curriculum, and whatever else a missionary needs in their part of the world.” Thank you for teaching your children the importance of giving to missions.

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU CAN DO IN 2019 is read the Bible for yourself.  Beginning in January, the Solid Rock Family will begin a journey of discovering & living out God’s Word together – like never before!  Stay tuned for more details in the near future!

NEW SR T-shirts, sweatshirts, & hats are coming!  You’ll see the design and be able to place your order soon.

Cleaning Team Needed  We need your help. It takes hard work to keep our church looking clean and beautiful.  Please see Anne if you are interested in helping.

Children’s Workers Luncheon will be on Sunday, Jan. 27th @ 12pm.  Lunch will be served here at Solid Rock. During this luncheon, we will discuss plans for the upcoming season of our kid’s ministries.  Please make plans to attend as we need everyone to attend this luncheon.  If you can not attend, let Pastor Jim know.   Also, if you aren’t currently helping but want to serve Jesus by serving on our Children’s Ministry team, see Pastor Jim or Donna.  For more info, you can visit our website at www.srworship.org & click on “Get Involved.”

Did you know that you can give to missions anytime?  Missions Sunday is the 1st Sunday of each month, but you can give towards missions anytime.  Just mark your envelope “missions” and it will always go towards supporting those who are sharing the message of Christ, both here and abroad!

Spread the Word!  YOU ARE THE MISSIONARY to your neighbors!   Think about who the Lord wants you to invite to church.  Pray & invite them!  Let’s spread the word & let others know what God is doing @ Solid Rock!

Visit our website to check our calendar, read this bulletin, do the “Daily Bread” devotional, give your tithes & offerings, find helpful links, & more!  This is a great way to let your friends know about Solid Rock as well.  Just click here for more info.

Attention Parents

  • For Toddlers through 5th Grade: During Pastor Jim’s message, your children are welcome to attend our “Children’s Church.”  During this time, they will learn about God’s Word at an age appropriate level, sing songs, and complete activities & crafts.  Don’t worry: if your child needs you, someone from our Children’s Ministry Team will come and get you.
  • For Other Children: While we desire our children to worship alongside their families in our Sanctuary, we realize there are times when our little ones aren’t quite ready for ‘grown up church.’  Sometimes they become a little talkative or can’t seem to sit still.  During these times, please make use of our nursery.  Doing so will help your child learn proper church etiquette, as well as allow others to fully engage in the service.  Our Nursery is located near the rest rooms and equipped with a live video feed of our service and some room for your child to squirm.  If you need assistance, please see one of our Greeters.  Thank for your cooperation.

Please help us…  Please try to arrive a few minutes before 10am for our morning service.  Due to our smaller building, people entering our service & opening the door can be a distraction during our worship time.  Let’s do our best to be ready to hear from the Lord during our services.  Thanks for your help & understanding in this matter.

Did you know that you can also give your Tithes & Offerings Online?  Many in the SR Family enjoy the convenience of giving online through both one-time & scheduled contributions.  Online Giving through our website is safe & secure.   Just click here for more info.
