What you need to know this week!

-Services Today
This morning we are going to be addressing some of the MANY questions from our congregation regarding Romans 13 and the relationship between Christian citizens and its government. Last week, Paul established that government is a good gift from God, run by the only people that can run it: sinners. This week we explore: What is our role as citizens under a government? What is the government’s God-given role for us? See you in a little bit!

-ATTN: Small Business Owners
We are trying to create ways that the Rockland family can support each other during this time so we are compiling a list of those who are 1) members or regular attenders of Rockland, and 2) small business owners or providers of a service to the community (hairstylist, chiropractor, etc.). If so, please send your name, business name, contact info and description of the business in a reply to this email. We will be compiling these and sending these out to our congregation.
