Another part of Chicago Cubs history is coming to Rockford later this month when Cubs favorite Grandpa Rossy (David Ross) will be speaking at Rockford First.

Lead Pastor Jeremy Deweerdt shared the exciting news in both services and on social media on Sunday.

If you've never been to Rockford First, there's two words to describe the atmosphere - energetic and positive. As with all RF events, it'll be a great time for all faiths and even no-believers. Anyone that attends Rockford First will tell you it's a place filled with imperfect people, including me.

David Ross, of the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, will speak at both services (9:15 & 11 a.m.) but the platform is not 100% confirmed. Although, it could be a Q&A session similar to Jep Robertson's appearance at the church in 2013.

This will be a BIG event for Rockford and the state line. Make plans to arrive early, get your young kids registered and checked in to one of there many kids classes, grab a coffe from Stuart's, and get ready for what could be a life changing event.
