LOVE ATLANTIC - OCT 2-9th
What would happen if the Church in Atlantic Canada joined together for a week of radical generosity and service in Jesus’ name? What if, for the sake of the Kingdom, we stepped across denominational lines to show the extravagant love of God to our neighbours?
This fall, you’re invited to participate in Love Atlantic, a multi-church, multi-denomination initiative to put the love of God on full display in communities across Atlantic Canada.
Here at Rock Church we are so excited to be able to share the love of Jesus Christ to our community through service and generosity. Below are some ways that you can partner together for this great initiative.
OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
We have several opportunities for you to sign up to serve. Click the links below to register or for more information.

COMMUNITY BLOCK PARTY - October 8th | 1-3PM
On Saturday, Oct 8th from 1-3pm we will be hosting, in partnership with other local churches, a community block party at Kinsman Park in Sackville. We will have music, bouncy castles, free food, prices, prayer and so much more. We're looking for people to come serve, setup and get to know our community.
SOUL'S HARBOUR RESCUE MISSION
There are a few different ways that we are partnering with Soul's Harbour to reach our community:
1) Thanksgiving Care Packages - we will be filling 250 care packages filled with essential items for those in need. We are looking for people to donate socks, toilet paper, shampoo and soap and also looking for help on Wednesday, October 5th at 6PM to fill these bags. You can drop off any donations to the church office by Wednesday, September 28th and you can sign up to fill the baskets below.
2) Casseroles - we also want to bless Soul's Harbour with a bunch of casseroles. If you can make or purchase one just drop it off to the church office before Thursday, October 6th and we'll deliver it to them.
3) Volunteer's Needed - Soul's Harbour is always looking for volunteers to help at one of their many opportunities. You can find out more information by clicking this link https://www.shrm.ca/index.php/contact-us/volunteer
We're also taking the opportunity to bless some amazing people doing amazing work in Lower Sackville by presenting them with cheques to help them continue the work that they do. Thank you for your faithfulness to giving. It's your generosity that allows us to help our community.
We will be supporting Freedom Kitchen Sackville, Sackville Warming Center and Sackville Youth-Drop In (Youth for Christ Canada) during Love Atlantic.
