It’s tough being the new guy.
Let us make it a little easier for you. Here’s what you can expect on a Sunday at The Rock Church:
What we’re like.
A lot of shorts and t-shirts in the summer, but some people still like to wear a tie or a dress. We’ve had several guests say that our attenders are authentic and friendly … we agree. Guys here like to make up stories about how big a fish they caught that weekend, girls like to laugh and hold babies. Babies like to cry. We can’t really help that.
Oh, and we’re pretty serious about softball too (three-time champions!).
When you get here.
We’re pretty busy on an average Sunday. Like, so-busy-there-aren’t-many-parking-spaces-nearby busy. That’s why we offer free valet parking. Or, you can always get here a little early if you think our valet drivers look sketchy (they’re not).
When you walk up to the front doors you’ll see a few smiling greeters who are excited to say hello and shake your hand. If hand shaking isn’t your thing, you can avoid the greeters by pretending that there is something important on your phone that you have to look at.
If you have kids.
You can check kids into our nursery, preschool and grade school age programs at the welcome center. We take your kid’s safety very seriously, so we have a quick process to increase security.
What we do during worship.
We sing both new worship songs, old hymns, and even the occasional Hank Williams classic. If you like variety, we have it.
Pastor Greg’s preaching style is approachable and engaging. He uses personal experiences to make Bible stories relatable, and he’ll make you laugh if you like bad jokes. You might cringe a lot if you don’t, but at least you’ll learn something. If you have to miss church one week, you can watch or listen to any sermon online.
Pastor Greg will be in front of the stage at the end of the service if you feel like talking. Greg likes to talk a lot, so you don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to.

Getting saved is the most important thing you could ever do. And once you are saved, there is nothing and no one that can ever take that away. But being saved is about more than just the forgiveness of your sins and getting out of ...
Most people think doubt is always bad. Sometimes it is. But doubt can also teach us about the importance of looking at what's going on around us, rather than what's happening to us. In your doubt, learn to depend on God, not the things ...
It's easy to get focused on ourselves. We think the world revolves around us, and our problems. We even think God does things for our happiness, or our benefit. That's not what the Bible says though. Everything is for God's glory, and ...

Miss us on Sunday? Watch here.

Win with your money.
God doesn’t need your money. So why does he ask for a tithe? Because your money is where your heart is.
