  1. Hello Pastor Chuck — I have a good friend that attends Rock church..where you are the Senior Pastor… and he totally loves it! His name is Kim Koller, & he has been attending for several months now. My name is Karen Pecoraro Russell and I live in southeastern North Carolina, but am originally from the state of Maine. I attend South Banks Community church here in Carteret county N.C. & have a phenomenal Pastor! I’m very much looking forward to reading your blogs..May God richly bless you, your family, & all of Rock Church in Peoria! Let everything that has breath PRAISE the Lord!

    1. Hey Karen! I’m not sure if my comment carried over to the new website. Thank you for sharing. Does Kim still attend RC? Bless you!

  2. Pastor Chuck, I just read 22 things Christians shouldn’t do. Thanks for the reminder, I could barely read it for the log in my eye. Just what I needed to hear….

  3. Hey Cindy! I’m not sure if my original comment carried over to the new website. Nonetheless, thank you for sharing. I realized I needed the reminder too, as I sat down to write ’22 Things…’. God bless you!
