Pastor Ed's Ministry Celebration! (DETAILS)
SAVE THE DATE!
Join us as we celebrate Pastor Ed Lange’s retirement, September 12 & 13.
The Worship service schedule will look a little different at Rockland the weekend of Sept. 12 and 13, so that we can accommodate more people as we gather to hear Ed’s final sermon as a pastor here, celebrate the gift of Ed’s faith and friendship to those at Rockland Church these past 32 years, and launch him into retirement!
We are offering four identical Worship services:
Saturday, September 12 at 3:00pm & 6:00pm
Sunday, September 13, 8:30am & 11:00am.
Sign-ups are required and you can signup here.
In honor of Ed & Michelle, and out of respect for their wishes, it will be required that masks be worn for the entire service. Consider it a gift to them.
Childcare for children age 4 and under is available on Saturday at the 3 pm service, and on Sunday at both services. If you have children age 4 or under, we would appreciate it if you would utilize the childcare provided so we have room for more people to attend the services honoring Pastor Ed.
For those who are unable to attend one of the worship services, an additional opportunity (outdoors) to say a quick “thank you” and to wish Ed & Michelle well will take place on Sunday afternoon at 3PM!
A quick note from the man himself!
“Michelle and I are so thrilled to see what our good Lord will do the weekend of September 12th and 13th! In addition, and as you might guess, we are so excited to be able to share that weekend with each of you (preaching and connecting with you in-person; as you are able)! Obviously, COVID-19 has made it not the ideal way for me to experience my final Sunday in the Professional Pastorate - not hugging the people I love so dearly - but I am grateful to get to preach. Finally, I pray that you know how honored I have been to be one of your pastors since January 1989! May God’s blessings of joy be fast upon you and yours this 3rd Tuesday of August 2020!”
If you would like to bless Ed and Michelle with a card and/or gift, we know they would treasure it. You can send them to the church and we will make sure it gets to him!
"See" you Sunday!
|Reminder about weekly Bible studies:
We normally take the whole summer off, but in light of COVID, we just took a couple of weeks off and are back up and running! There are two studies in-person and one online that can be accessed at any time if you can't make it live. If you have never done a Bible study or do a Bible study every week, these studies reach everyone where they are in their faith and knowledge of the Word of God. Join us!
