With Great Love Comes Great Sacrifice

Troy Bracken April 16, 2020 General

Rock Church Family,

With great love comes great sacrifice.
This describes the life of Pastor Dan’s father, Dan Roth, Sr. It was on a Tuesday like any other, April 14, 2020, that Mr. Roth passed on to glory … but not until he had finished serving hundreds of people in need that morning.

He finished strong. He finished serving the Lord with all his heart, soul, and strength. He finished his race with his eyes on the rewards that only heaven can give. He loved God greatly and served his people sacrificially, so it is with great sadness that we announce his passing from earth to his heavenly home. He is surely being received with a welcome fitting for this caliber of a servant of Christ with these words to the faithful,

Well done, good and faithful servant … Enter into the joy of your lord.

No truer word would describe Dan Roth Sr. He served faithfully in many areas of the church, from innovative problem-solving in the computer department to teaching kids who loved their “Mr. Roth” at our school TRCS. Most notably he worked for years at The Rock Church food bank where he was a respected and loved leader among both volunteers and food bank clients. Needless to say, he will be missed by all his church family.

We ask that at this time you do not send flowers, food or money, but you may send any cards or words of encouragement to our church office. The best way to help now is to please lift up our Senior Pastors Dan and Jessica Roth and the entire Roth family as they mourn the loss of a great father, grandfather, husband, and friend.
