Our strategy is to partner with families and parents to help every child discover and embrace a personal relationship with Jesus, both at The Rock and at home.
Kidz Rock (Sundays)Each weekend, K-5th graders are invited to participate in a safe, fun and purposeful time of worship and teaching to learn more about God. We are committed to helping your child grow in every aspect of their relationship with Jesus and knowledge of God’s Word.
WE MAKE EACH WEEK MATTER:From the time a child is born until they graduate from high-school, they have approximately 936 weeks. It might seem like a lot, but it goes by fast! In fact, in any given year, the Church usually only has about 40 weeks to teach children biblical principles that they can apply in their everyday lives. (That’s taking into consideration vacations, holidays, and sick days each year.) We know that we have a short window of time, so we are intentional about the time we spend with children at The Rock.

How do we help Students with costs?
The Rock is a loving congregation! Each year the Student ministry sponsors a number of fundraisers to assist families with the cost of the trips. The two most expensive activities are camp and the winter retreat. All the money the students earn goes towards those two events first. After a student has earned enough to pay for those trips he/she can begin using their earned money for other activities. While they may not earn all of their expenses, what they do earn goes a long way to helping the home budget.
Doing Life Together!
We’re so glad you are here! Often churches have small groups as a part of their ministry and that is a good thing. However The Rock is seeking to build a church of small groups.
This simply means that we believe that the small group ministry is the most strategic ministry in the body to meet the needs of those attending The rock. These groups are being developed to meet most days of the week.
We are in the process of building a ministry that will love god, Love Others and Serve with Joy. We hope you will decide to attend a group that will be convenient and encourage you to grow in your walk with the Lord.

The Rock Men's Ministry
Our purpose is to define authentic manhood.
Our purpose is to help men experience a right relationship with God through the Savior Jesus Christ. We create an environment where men are challenged to live a holy life before their families and friends while providing an opportunity for fellowship
We provide for our families, fight for righteousness, build a strong band of brothers and are faithful to the word of God. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
In Proverbs 27:17 we are told, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Strong men build up other strong men.
Our Men’s Ministry meets the first Friday of each month at 6pm. Come join up for food, fellowship and God’s Word.
