Welcome to
The Rock


7:30 PM

The Rock is a church for people seeking an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. We're mostly young (or young at heart). We like sleeping in on Sunday mornings. We don't care much about what you wear or what your background is. Rather, we are focused on one thing: 

That the next generation would

  • Know the Real God

  • Grow Real Faith

  • Take Real Action


See our vision for reaching the ends of the earth


At The Rock, it is our desire to see our kids growing in the Lord right alongside their parents. Bring the whole family this Friday so your kids can experience Jesus and connect with one another in a safe, fun, environment.

Small Group

Life is better in circles than in rows.
Small groups offer deeper fellowship as we share life together and grow in our faith.
Groups meet in homes throughout the city.
