Join the Rock Ministry Pancake Feast!

In preparation for Lent, we are having a “Shrove Tuesday” style pancake feast (but on a Sunday). We’ll have pancakes and sausages and fruit, so come hungry! This feast will be in place of all Sunday morning classes (even for adults).

Pastor Bri will have a short lesson for the kids. We’ll learn how to make ashes for Ash Wednesday worship, and talk about why we put these ashes on our foreheads as we begin the season of Lent.

Plan to come and join the feast!

November Ninja Night

On Sunday, 19 November, the first “full fledged” MVLC “Middle Rock” (6, 7, 8, and 9 graders) middle school/junior high fellowship event of the 2017–2018 school year took place in the Education Building and Life Together Hall.

The evening was filled with the five “F”s of Middle Rock fellowship events—friends, fellowship, food, faith, and fun. It started with a dinner of noodle bowls and “ninja desserts,” followed by various “ninja games”—Ninja Battle, Samurai, 90-Second Ninja Dance Off, and, of course, Ninja.
