Funds Needed for Guatemala Missions Team /// We are sending an adult mission team to Guatemala in August, and need to raise funds to support our project commitments (construction, outreach, etc.). Funding and supplying a missions team is a way to be an integral part of our work! Mark donations “Guatemala.” Thank you!

Dakar Home Meetings  ///  Our Dakar Home Meetings are designed to equip those of you may not have been actively involved in supporting our mission in Dakar with the information you need to make a choice about engaging in an active support role.

Two dates are available – Wednesday, August 9 in Macomb Township, and Thursday, August 10 in Clinton Township (address available upon registration).

Summer Serve /// We have several great options for you to serve this summer!

Have a Ball in Children’s Ministry: Can you share your time? Play a game? Show God’s love? We give our Children’s Ministry volunteers the summer off to recharge, and instead we staff our classrooms with an amazing team of volunteers that could include YOU! We provide all the training and materials, you simply supply yourself…c’mon! Check it out at the Summer Serve display!

Life Remodeled: We’re partnering with Life Remodeled again this year to tackle community service projects in the neighborhood surrounding Central High School in Detroit! All work will take place the week of July 31 – August 5. Volunteer opportunities are available for a wide range of time commitments, so stop by the Summer Serve display or register RIGHT HERE!

This event is open to official Rockpointe members, as well as those who call this their church home.

Getting Ready for Marriage /// You’ve bought the ring and set the date…what’s next? Here at Rockpointe we believe it’s incredibly important to be prepared for your wedding both spiritually and emotionally! We’ve designed the Getting Ready for Marriage experience to help you along this journey. You’ll spend time viewing and discussing material designed to provoke engaging discussion about vital premarital issues. We also predict you’ll have some fun, too. This class is designed for couples engaged to be married and runs on Friday, October 27 from 6-9 P and Saturday, October 28 from 9 A – 4 P (both sessions required). Cost is $100 per couple. Register RIGHT HERE or at the Welcome Center. Questions? Contact Family Life Pastor Jeff Brown (jeff@rockpointe.org).

Recycling Initiative /// If you don’t need to keep your bulletin or insert cards, please help us out by recycling them! Just drop them off at one of the baskets at the back of the sanctuary or at either balcony exit. Thank you!

Paper Retriever /// Rockpointe now hosts a Paper Retriever recycling bin! It’s located in our Pole Barn parking lot (north side of the church). Feel free to bring in your office/school paper, newspaper, construction paper, shredded paper (in plastic bags), discarded mail, notebooks and writing tablets. The more paper we fill it with, the more recycling dollars come back to Rockpointe to support all sorts of ministry initiatives! Please note that the bin will not accept phone books or books (hardcover or paperback).

Rockpointe APP /// Have you checked out our Rockpointe APP for tablets and smartphones? Download it for free from iTunes or Google Play and check it out! Listen to recent messages, give online, submit prayer requests, browse events, share via social media and more! Questions? Contact Communications Director Laura Edghill laura@rockpointe.org.

EveryOne Dakar /// Please pray for our EveryOne Dakar team – both the Dady and the Commisso families – for their ministry commitments—for wisdom, discernment and inspiration! Connect online @ www.every1dakar.org.


HiP Team pledge card FINALHiP Team /// We have a partnership with a mission to the Himalayan Plateau! The HiP Team is working to establish a mission in an area of the world where there are no known followers of Christ.  We look forward to what God’s going to do in this remote part of the world!
