What is a R.O.C.K.?

A Remarkable Older Outstanding Christian Kid!!

If you are at least 65 years old, you are a R.O.C.K. of our church, community, families…. You get the idea. A few times a year we will plan some events and local trips for you to join in. In the past we have gone to dinner, visited the Exchange Nature Center at Kinston, NC, and the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher in Kure Beach. We have been honored by the members of our church when they held a special brunch or luncheon for us. Just recently we attended a production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” in Goldsboro. We use the Church bus to get where we are going and you just enjoy the ride.

Here you will find copies of our newsletter ‘Focus on Jesus’ written just for you. Our current editor is Jim Godwin, Jr. and in the first newsletter, he talks about how the title came about:

“The phrase “Focus on Jesus” was a frequent comment by a great man of God. He was my mentor for a half century or more… When I would go to this man with a problem his automatic response was “Focus on Jesus”. My mentor’s name was Craig Houston Patterson. He was also my pastor and friend. He believed that Jesus was the answer to all of our problems, great or small. He was right! We all need to accept this belief and begin passing it on to others. After all, Jesus tells us He expects us to be His witnesses even unto the ends of the earth.”
