Small Community Activities
Small community connecting activities are opportunities to connect through common interests, activities, age and season of life.
These activities bring people together to enjoy a common interest and build friendships. The intent is to encourage relationships by getting Rimrockers (and others) together to enjoy a common interest. It is a casual way to connect to the body of Christ through an activity you enjoy. A simple concept with wonderful impact on lives. These are opportunities to connect beyond bible studies and beyond church.
In the Fall and Winter Months we offer the following:
Recreational Volleyball (Jan. - April) Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm in the main campus auditorium.
Ascension Young Adults -age 18-25 During the school year, we meet at our Downtown Campus on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Thursday of each month, 7 pm. We will announce our summer activities when they are planned.

Prayer Shawl Ministry:
Shawls are lovingly handmade (knit, crochet, or woven) out of soft yarn, prayed over by those who make it then wrapped around someone who needs comfort. They offer a vehicle through which hurting people can feel the loving arms of Jesus. Join Donna Wilkening & friends at the Exchange monthly. Contact Donna with any questions at (605) 391-5838.
