ROCK Community - Dec. 14 - 5:00 pm
This Sunday, Dec. 14, we will not have ROCK at the church building! During our regular youth group times (5:00-7:00 pm) we will have youth group at the Lakefront in Downtown Kissimmee (201 Lakeview Drive). This is a way for us to be more visible in the community. Two options for drop-off: two buses will leave the church at 5:00 pm. But not everyone will fit, so we are asking some students to meet at the Lakefront at the Heron Pavilion. We will be out there so you can’t miss us. Contact Christ with any questions.
