Funds Needed for Missions Teams /// We have three adult mission teams going out over the next few months – a team to Dakar in April, a team to Costa Rica in June, and a team to Guatemala in August. We have funding goals to meet in order to supply all three teams. We’ll be running an English camp for university students in Dakar, and 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 “Dakar Camp,” “Costa Rica,” or “Guatemala.” Thank you!

Osborn Service Saturday /// We’d love to see you out for our next Service Saturday! Rather than meet at Osborn High School, this Service Saturday will be dedicated to clean-up surrounding Total Life Church (13158 Gratiot Ave., Detroit 48025). Transportation is available and departs RCC parking lot at 8:15 AM (returns by 2 PM). Volunteers will remove trash, small trees and weeds, as well as some indoor materials including demolition. Needed are outdoor yard tools, small saws and loppers, shovels and rakes. Wear solid-sole shoes due to worksite conditions (trash, nails, etc.). All skill levels welcome! Open to adults and teens (12 +). Register at the Welcome Center or right here. Questions? Contact us at osborn@rockpointe.org.

Good Friday Baptism Service /// It is clear in the New Testament that baptism was practiced as an act in response to Jesus after accepting Him as Lord and Savior. Perhaps you’ve just begun your journey with Christ, or maybe it’s been some time already…in either case, we encourage you to participate in our next baptism service on Good Friday, April 14 at 7 P.

Home Plate at Comerica Park /// We have a limited number of tickets available for this year’s Home Plate event at Comerica Park on Saturday, April 29. This is an outstanding opportunity to invite a friend or two to a Detroit Tigers game and so much more! Start the day off by hearing straight from a number of current players including 2016 AL Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer, as well as former Tiger Willie Horton and Christian recording artist Matt Hammitt. Tickets are $34 and include the pre-game program, on-the-field photos, souvenirs, meal tickets, and of course the day’s game vs. the Chicago White Sox. Register here or at the Welcome Center.

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).

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!
