In the New Testament the Christian life is described as a walk. Our day to day living in the context of life determines what kind of a walk we will have. A walk that pleases God requires obedience to God's commands. The last 3 chapters of Ephesians focuses on the practical, daily living commands that make up the Christian walk.

In a culture that values self-rule and self-determination, the Bible stands out as radical when it comes to personal virtue. We are called to humility rather than self-exaltation. We are called to gentleness rather than fierce, competitive striving. We are called to have patience rather than a "I don't have time for this" attitude. Ultimately, we are called to value the worth of the people around us over valuing our selves over all.

This is challenging. This is also exciting. The call to be counter-cultural is a high calling indeed. Come join your brothers and sisters at The Rock as we continue to learn from Ephesians.

"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called." - Ephesians 4:1

Upcoming Events

Children's Ministry

This week Rock Kids will be digging into the story of when God provided for Elisha & a widow, found in 2 Kings 4:1-7. The kids will learn the Bible point "God gives us what we need." Kids today have varying levels of need. Whether its food, money, love, or community, the reality is that everyone needs something. We want to help kids understand that God gives us what we need, and we can thank him for that. When we feel like we're in need, we can trust that God will provide, because God gives us what we need.
