250th Historical Facts

Pastoral Visitation – 1842

“The subject of Pastoral visitation was taken up.  That regular Family visitation and catechismal instruction be performed by the Pastor and Elder at least  ______.  That the Thursday of each week be devoted to that purpose and that the congregation be divided into wards or parishes, and that the wards be assigned to each Elder.”  Session notes also included the name of five or six families assigned to each of the six elders active at Rock Church of that time. These visitations included the heads of families, the children and domestics – and included “reading the scriptures, singing, prayers and catechizing of the children.” -Session Book 1, 1823-1858

The Palliative Care Ministry continues to be available to all Rock Presbyterian Covenant Partners who are or have loved ones facing serious illnesses. Through support, advocacy, and education, members of the team provide peace of mind by clarifying medical terminology, answering questions and offering important education via regularly scheduled conversations. If you or someone you know is experiencing difficult medical concerns and you would like to learn more about this unique ministry, contact Pastor Debby, Judy Lentz, or the church office.
