STATEMENT 2 – COVID19 - 3/20/20
The Coronavirus pandemic continues to progress, and this virus has been found to be highly contagious. That is why we have decided that, until further notice, all church meetings are held virtually, that is, avoid meeting in groups -- face to face -- and to meet instead through virtual means (online or conference calls). In this way we continue to obey the following verses and, additionally, do so safely for all of us & our families:
Hebrews 10: 24-25 (ESV) "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
It is essential that we maintain communication with each other. Remember that the enemy wants to divide and isolate us.
Small Groups On Friday Nights:
Each group will choose the way to connect. There are different platforms available that can be used to bring groups together during this period of crisis until we return to normal. Some of these ways include phone conference lines or through applications such as Zoom, Skype, etc.
For more information, please call the church office, 305.559.0708, or go to therockmiami.com.
Sunday Service: 11:30 AM
Our service will be broadcasted live through the following platforms:
- a) Website: therockmiami.com
- b) Facebook: facebook.com/RockMiami
- c) Youtube: youtube.com/TheRockMiamiChurch
Thank you for your patience. Let us remember that as a society we are all working to stop the spread of the virus and return to normal as soon as possible.
We love you,
Pastors of The Rock
STATEMENT #1 – COVID19 - 3/18/20
The Coronavirus pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge to our church and society. We are confident that, in the end, God will lead us through this difficult test. We need to stay together and do the work that God wants us to do. In this season, to triumph against adversity we must focus on loving one another and staying united. The Scriptures tell us:
John 13:34 (ESV) "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."
John 17:21 (ESV) "That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me."
Yesterday (March 17th, 2020), the mayor of Miami-Dade County Carlos Giménez communicated his Emergency Order 03-20 ordering public sites to be closed (including auditoriums) and no meeting of groups of more than ten people. The purpose of these new directives is to prevent the spread of the virus.
Considering this, please make note of our action plan for this current situation in the next few weeks:
Until further notice, we are asking all our members to view our livestream from the comfort of their homes and not to attend our facilities.
The main service will be streamed online. Sunday Service will be as usual and will include worship, announcements, and sermon.
Connect with us online and enjoy our live streaming service through any of these links:
In the next few days we will be communicating the plans that we have in the different areas of the life of the church.
Let us remain in an attitude of prayer. No doubt the enemy will try to divide and isolate us from each other. Let's fight the good fight and work to stay together and take care of each other.
We love you,
The Rock Pastors
