Covid Testing site Reopens in CTR Parking Lot
THURSDAYS | 9 am – 5 pm
Calumet County and ThedaCare have reopened the CTR testing site due to fewer test sites remaining open elsewhere in the Fox Valley. To schedule an appointment, click here to visit Calumet County’s website. We are thankful for their ongoing efforts to care for our community!
As of June 1, masks are optional in our building on weekdays, and at our 8:45 and 10:45 am Sunday services. We are very grateful for the lower numbers of cases in our community and state.
We will continue to offer both in-person and livestreamed Sunday services to care for the needs of our whole church family. Starting June 1, masks are optional at our 8:45 and 10:45 am Sunday services. If you have any symptoms or have recently spent time with someone who tested positive for Covid, we ask that you participate in our online services instead. Online services are livestreamed at 8:45 and 10:45 am on our website, on Facebook, and on YouTube. You can also watch them anytime afterward on our YouTube channel. If you wish to begin receiving email updates from Christ The Rock, send your contact information to email@example.com.

Items needed are: diapers and baby wipes, non-perishable items, peanut butter and jelly, bread, cereal, canned meats, diapers, baby wipes, cleaning supplies, sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, and hand soap.
If you are in need of food: Because of increased requests, we are not packing bags for specific requests* – we will have pre-packed bags groceries for different family sizes. We are changing our pick-up method to a “drive-up” instead of our usual procedure. Our volunteers will meet you at your car and will be handing off bags. If you missed the sign-up deadline (5:00 pm Fridays) but still need food, we will have extra bags packed during these weeks. *If clients have serious health needs, such as food allergies or Crohn’s disease, we are asking people to please leave that information on the voicemail when you call.
