A great joy of being a part of a community of people is conversation. Genuine conversation allows us to express our opinions, respond to others, and simply enjoy one another’s company. Conversation produces better communal thinking. We engage with one another in a way that allows us to grow, change, and become better. Does this sound impossible in a day and age of social media rants, one-sided opinions, and win-at-all-costs mentality?

It is not impossible. I see it regularly at The Rock. Our small groups are designed for conversation around God and His Word. And these conversations sharpen us into better representations of Jesus. We depend on one another to encourage growth in Jesus.

One conversation that is happening centers around what the Bible says about the church. What is the church supposed to do? How is the church supposed to worship? How do individuals fit into the community of believers? The conversations have been rich. And my prayer is that the conversations will give us focus.

This Sunday we will enact an application of the fruit of these conversations regarding the church. The Bible clearly teaches that the church must read the Bible publicly. Each Sunday we will reflect God’s design for worship by taking time to read the Word of God out loud. Come worship at The Rock this Sunday as we allow the Holy Spirit to guide our worship reflecting what we believe God desires for His church!

"Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching." - 1 Timothy 4:13

Upcoming Events

Children's Ministry

This week Rock Kids will be digging into the story of builders trying to build a great tower, found in Genesis 11:1-9. The kids will learn the Bible point "God is the greatest, and we don't need to be." This story can be a bit confusing for kids. they've been taught to try their best and world well in teams. So why does God get so mad about people working together to do something great? We want to help kids see that their motivation to become famous was self-focused instead of focused on God's greatness. We don't need to try to show everyone we're the best, because we're not! God is the greatest , and we can point to him when we do our best work.
