Happy Birthday Sharon Thurman!

Sharon Thurman turns 85 on March 30! We are collecting birthday cards and Thinking of You cards in the church office. We can also share her home address with you if you call the church office. She worked in our preschool and as a custodian for may years. Just counting preschool teaching we can truthfully say she worked here more than half of her life.

Transition Team Corner

From time to time we will use Rock the Week to communicate the thinking, planning, and actions of our Transition Team.

The scope of their work is to oversee the process of moving Shadow Rock UCC into an organizational model that is sustainable and adaptive, with the motivation that the preservation and promotion of our core values, vision, and mission are key to the survival and thriving of Shadow Rock.

The team members are doing a lot of reading. The link below is an example. Contact Marilyn Rampley if you have questions or want to help.

Shadow Rock Work Morning April 6

Please join us for a morning of clean-up and fix-up for our campus, April 6. We will begin at 8 am and end before noon. Feel free to join us anytime in the morning.

The projects include creating a drainage path, cleaning/blowing sidewalks, cleaning the patio, and some tree trimming. Some light work and some heavier work. Something for everyone!

Department of Economic Security Audit Submitted

COVID precipitated millions of dollars of grants to help preschools and families to survive the uncertain times. Our preschool has benefited from the grant programs and now DES wants accountability.

The request for an audit and our needed response was fast and furious. The documentation gathered and submitted was a combined stack of paperwork over 8 inches high.

Thank you Heidi for all the extra work!!






If you want to be part of the art show leadership contact the church office. At this time, the church staff is gathering information and collecting names of interested persons.

We want to have our team in place by March 31st.
