Senior High July Newsletter


Update From June

June was filled with the Word, centered around God’s mission in us. We enjoyed guest speakers Nicole Rasmussen, who preached on taking your territory for God’s kingdom, and David Voigtlander, who inspired our students to worship God by fulfilling the Great Commission. Pastor Terrance wrapped it up in our combined Jr. and Sr. High service on June 17, by charging them to let Jesus fill their hearts with His love and, in return, to worship Him with our lives. We rounded up the month with the release of our first EP, “You Fill My Heart”! We then launched the students into their summer, be it camp, work, or school, with a mission to reach their generation with the love Jesus has shown them.

“We Are the Rock” Summer Camp was a powerful time in the presence and glory of God, and over 300 students encountered His unconditional love and goodness for a week at Lake Geneva. God is moving in a mighty way with the students of The Rock!

Coming Up This Month

July is the start of Summer Nights in The Rock Sr. High. Each week, we will celebrate the summer and God’s goodness with field games, outdoor music, food, and fun. Encourage your student to come join the fun each Wednesday night!

Special Needs Ministry

In the Rock Jr. and Sr. High, we will implement a program specifically for youth grade 6–age 21 who have special needs. This program will be on Saturday nights at 5 p.m. in the Jr. High. We hope to eventually start a parallel class to accommodate the needs of our youth. If you would like to sign your youth up for this ministry, please contact Sabrinna Sherry at We will give you an application to fill out so we can get to know your youth and determine the best fit for them.

We are in need of volunteers for this area of ministry! If you have a heart for those with special needs and would like to volunteer in this area of ministry, please contact Sabrinna Sherry at
