The annual Rock Christian Church Fall Festival was Nov. 2 at the Rock gym. Close to 100 people from the area and beyond came to enjoy smoked beef or pork, salads, scalloped potatoes, green beans, homemade bread and desserts all made by members and friends of the church.
A country store featuring homemade jellies, candy, cookies, bread and crafts was open throughout the evening.
Following the dinner, an auction of donated items was held. Allen Moore was the auctioneer with volunteers from the church distributing the items as they were sold. Among the items sold were three wooden handmade planters, embroidered tea towels, walking sticks and canes, Christmas decor and more. Most items were handmade. One guest said she thought it was really a fun auction.
This festival has been held in Rock for about 44 years. In February, the church holds a pancake and biscuit and sausage fundraiser breakfast to which everyone is invited. The church has a part-time minister, the Rev. Jerry Prewitt, who with his wife, Gigi, has been at the church for three years. They live outside Derby.
