Here’s what you can expect on a Sunday at The Rock
WHAT TO EXPECT
We use the term “Faith Family” a bunch around here. It’s what we consider ourselves. We want you to be a part of our family! Here’s what you can expect on a Sunday at The Rock:
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 genuine and friendly … we agree. Guys here like to talk about the big fish they caught that weekend, girls like to laugh and hold babies, and our Senior Adults love our coffee. We strive to provide a relaxed and authentic environment that honors God and teaches the Bible
When You Get Here:
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, no big deal. We WON’T make it awkward. We have Valet Parking available for everyone. It’s our gift to you. And no, our guys won’t accept tips, no matter what!
If You Have Kids:
You can check kids into our nursery, preschool and grade school age programs in the hallway at the "Check In" counter -under the lights! We take your kids’ safety very seriously, so we have a quick process to increase security. If you have any special needs or have some information that you would like our Kids Workers to know, please tell us! Just find someone with a name tag lanyard on. We want to give your child the best possible experience at The Rock.
What We Do During Church:
We sing new worship songs, old hymns, and everything in between. If you like variety, we have it.
Pastor Greg teaches straight from the Bible. We are very serious about the authority of the Word of God. However, we often have fun doing it. He will frequently use personal stories and experiences to make some things easier to understand. If you want to hear a sermon or two before you come, please feel free to do so, just click watch or listen to hear any sermon online.
Pastor Greg will be in front of the auditorium at the end of the service. He would love to get a chance to meet you and just say hello.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Rock Church is a church under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, we are committed to contending for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3). In unity with the historic Christian church, we believe and confess the Apostles’, Nicene and Chalcedonian Creeds as accurate representations of Scripture’s teaching. In addition to these historic formulations, we are situated within the evangelical, Reformed and Baptist traditions.
The theological distinctives within The Rock Church Statement of Faith reflect what distinguishes The Rock Church from other churches who would affirm the basic doctrines. These distinctives indelibly shape the way that The Rock Church is led and the direction the church is headed. You can find a copy of our Statement of Faith
To take people from where they are to where God wants them to be.
At The Rock, we don’t want to be the best in the community; we want to be the best for the community. Therefore, we won’t be satisfied until everyone in Laurel hears and responds to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is our ultimate goal, and we cannot rest until we reach it. We continually adapt and change our strategy to accomplish that goal. As the Apostle Paul said,
“I have become all these things to all people, so that by all means I might save some.”
1 Corinthians 9:22
