Join Us to Pray for Rockland Together Tuesday, September 8, 8:15 am
Rockland recognizes the importance of prayer and desires your prayers for God’s guidance in His direction for the life of our church. Once a month on the first Tuesday of the month afterwards, a time of corporate prayer will be open to all. Our intent is to seek God’s will for our church, our staff, and the body of Christ represented here. The prayer time will last ½ hour and be led by one of the elders. The structure of these sessions may vary, but they will typically include scripture reading/reflection, silent prayer and praying aloud by anyone who feels comfortable doing so. Please feel free to come and join in silent and/or group prayer. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face…then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Friday evening October 2 & Saturday October 3 With Guest Speaker Dale Skram - Hide & Seek: The Game of Authenticity
Most of want to be real with God and others, but we fear that we won’t be fully accepted as we are, so we cover up parts of our lives to make us feel more presentable. In this retreat Dale identifies common “fig leaves” that women hide behind that keep them from authentic living, how to remove them, so that we can live in deep connection with our God. We will also learn how to use our authenticity before God to form authentic relationships and counter our natural tendency to please others rather than being real with them. Dale will also teach us how to handle the authenticity of others by creating a safe environment where women can experience the transforming power of the grace and truth of God.
Retreat is at Rockland and the cost is $65.00 Sign up table will be in Fellowship Hall Sept. 13 Questions? Contact Cheryl Jehn at firstname.lastname@example.org

Adult Ed Classes
Sunday, August 30th, at 10:00 in Room 106
'The Trinity for Dummies--Taught by a Dummy!' Leader: Dick Parks
One of the most important doctrines of the Church, it is also one of the least understood. Here's a chance to learn (or re-learn) and to discuss some of the basic truths about The Trinity, where and when the doctrine developed, and the difference it makes for Christians today. If you're looking for a critical analysis of the views of Athenasius, Augustine, and Aquinas... you'll be disappointed! This is your final Sunday to teach the teacher something!
Sunday, Sept. 6th, at 10:00 in Room 106
“Leadership Lessons from the Book of Proverbs" Leader: Gordon Steere
Several people from Rockland recently attended the 2015 Global Leadership Summit. We all learned practical leadership applications from a wonderful diversity of speakers.
On September 6, please join the Adult Ed class to continue the leadership conversation through the teachings of the second wisest human to ever live, King Solomon. His writings in Proverbs are packed with leadership lessons that are critically relevant for today.
We will also introduce the class to an overview of the concept and current model of Emotional Intelligence (EQ 2.0) and compare EQ leadership attributes with those found in the book of Proverbs. Please join us for what will be a great and lively discussion.
