February Is Black History Month

As February draws to a close, it's time to reflect on the areas in which we need to learn more and do more. Black history is everyone's history.

Rock the Week

22 February 2023

Ash Wednesday Services Cancelled for This Evening

Due to difficult weather in our area and Pastor Ken's illness, we are cancelling today's Ash Wednesday service. St Teresa of Avila Catholic Community that meets on our campus will gather for Ash Wednesday in the Chapel at 6:30 pm. You are always invited to attend their services.

Our Lenten Journey

Beginning next week, join us for Wednesday Connections. During Lent, we'll gather on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Our focus is belonging and connection, beginning with a short Lenten devotion. Bring your gratitude and your concerns to this time of centering and prayer.

Beginning this Sunday at 9:00 am, our spiritual formation series for Lent begins. We're looking at the foundations of our community and shared identity in a series called What Matters. This first week's theme is 'We Are Unified at the Table.'

Hi from the Finance Office!

Our special Lenten offering this year will support the Refugee Resettlement Fund and help us fulfill our promises to Afghan diplomat families. Our congregation's work in this arena has blessed so many. Look for envelopes in this week's bulletin if you're attending in person or visit our giving page online.

Just to remind you, Shadow Rock is enrolled in the Fry's Foods Community Rewards program. We receive about $500 a year through this initiative. To participate in this program linked to your Fry's Card, follow the instructions found here.
