The Rock in print
The Rock made it in print. So that's kinda cool:

Waves of immigration, economic flux, shifts in city growth -- dramatic 21st-century trends are changing the physical look and ethnic mix of the neighborhood, and that's changing the neighborhood church....

The Rock/La Roca United Methodist Church, in Lexington, Ky., is an experiment in faith, a work in progress, a growing witness in a changing landscape.

Some 300 people worship here -- Anglos (English-speaking whites) are the majority, Hispanics/Latinos, African Americans and lately two dozen Congolese, French-speaking refugees from Congo -- sharing a spiritual journey in a neighborhood in flux.

"The most important thing to happen in the last six months is we've realized we are living in another time of Pentecost," Mansfield says.

But then Aaron says it not really thaaaat cool.
