Marisabel, sorry. I she saw me mistake her name with another ex of mine, she’d hurt me.

Anyone know my beautiful Colombian ex-girl Maribel? She used to go to La Roca.

My story in RCC was quite complicated. I was there for several years and experienced when many people came and went. There was a point in my life where I considered them my “family” above my own. I don’t regret taking part in the church and playing a role in their activites, even managing one or two, but over time, as I saw many things that disturbed me mentally and even questioned my faith, I decided that the best thing for me to do was move on to another church where I wouldn’t be as involved, especially in power struggles and internal beliefs that I did not morally agree to.
I have much respect for Pastor Withrow for bringing in people seeking to find themselves and their calling. Despite the negativity that surrounded the church when I left, at least she gave Latinos something to believe in instead of them finding the wrong answers out on the streets of Jackson Heights. Were you at the church during the “basement” times? If so, we most certainly know each other. What is your story at the Rock? Do the CrossRoads cafe still exist? Are there still talent shows going on to bring in the youth? Do you know who are the people who are still there from the basement days? I was quite fond of a few of them and if they are still there, I’d like to know how they’re doing years later.

If anyone else has more information, without me having to actually go there, let me know.

I’m glad to see they’re moving up in the world. I remember when they were located at that dinky little basement spot on Roosevelt Ave., although the Crazy chicken people next door used to love them being there. It was so good for business. I guess the Crazy chicken people got fried! in terms of business. Bad joke. I know. Thanks for the feedback. I’m wondering who the pastor is now and which of the old-school members are still there? Would you happen to know this?

Is this where the RCC is now located? Interesting. It has been a while since I last heard that name. The Rock Community Church. Do they have a website? If so, I’d be interested in knowing what it is. They are the ones who brought me into the Christian faith and also made me leave; but I’m curious to see how they are doing five years later. If anyone has any information on their website, please post it up. Thanks.
