This Week at Rock Prairie
Dear members and friends,
As of today, the Session has made the difficult decision to
cancel all in-person activities at Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church until April
6 and possibly longer.* The church offices also will be closed. Our phones
will be answered during regular business hours. As well, phone numbers will be
listed for after-hours pastoral needs. Our staff and leaders will continue to
do essential church ministry to support our congregation and community.
These precautions are mandated by our Governor and recommended by public health
officials in an attempt to minimize the spread of illness. Our foremost concern
is your health and that of those most vulnerable.
We are very aware of the need for spiritual connection at this time of
uncertainty. We recognize feelings of isolation can be a symptom of mandated
closures and "social distancing." The church can still be a source of
hope and connection even when it's not wise to gather in large-group settings.
Please contact us if in need of prayer or counsel.
Please continue to check your e-mails as well as our Web site at www.rockprairiechurch.org/ and on
Face Book at https://www.facebook.com/RockPrairiePresbyterianChurch/.
Here are a few ways to stay connected, including online worship
or viewing services on your television.

in touch by phone or face time. If anyone needs assistance with groceries or
supplies, please contact the church for assistance.
