Funds Needed for Missions Teams /// We have two more adult mission teams going out over the next few months –a team to Costa Rica in June, and a team to Guatemala in August. We have funding goals to meet in order to supply both teams. We’ll be working with children as well as doing construction in both Costa Rica and Guatemala. Funding these teams is a way to be an integral part of our work in these areas! Mark donations either “Costa Rica” or “Guatemala.” Thank you!
Suitcases Also Needed for Missions Teams /// Both teams are in need of donated suitcases! This is a one-way trip for the luggage, so only donate items to which you are prepared to say a fond and final farewell. Drop off suitcases at the Welcome Center.

The group meets on Wednesdays from 9:30 – 10:45 A  weekly through May 31. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required.

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!
