First time here?
Like any good host, we want you to feel welcome and at home at The Rock Church. We know that your first time at a church might bring up some questions, so feel free to reach out to us or check out some frequently asked questions below!
You can also connect with us online
In the meantime, here are some answers to a few questions you might have before your first visit.
Each week, you will experience inspiring music, an encouraging message, and friendly people. The service typically runs about an hour, with complimentary coffee and snacks in the welcome center.
An average service starts with a greeting, followed by a couple of worship songs, and announcements. We then continue with a 30 – 40 minute sermon, and an occasional alter call. Once a month, we take communion during the service.
We suggest arriving a few minutes before the 10 AM service begins to allow for parking, grabbing coffee, restrooms, etc.
We want you to be able to find a comfortable seat, and you’ll probably feel more acclimated to the room if you have a few minutes to adjust before the service begins. You might even make a new friend!
Absolutely! Children 3 years old to 8 have their own activities designed especially for them in Kids Rock, our children’s ministry. Students ages 9 and beyond can join us at the adult service. If you wish to bring your children with you to the adult service on your first visit, that’s fine too! We are thankful to have your family join us.
If you have children attending Rock Kids Ministry, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes in advance of our 10 AM service to get your children registered, because safety first!
We’re way more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear to church. But so you’ll feel comfortable, know that most folks dress in casual weekend attire, and even the pastor will be wearing jeans. So dress comfortably and you’ll fit right in!
The Rock Church meets at 240 Newton Road Ste 103 in Raleigh. Click here for directions.
Not at all! Many people use our online giving option as well. Any offerings we receive support the full range of ministries we offer in the church and community, and around the world.
No, we’re not going to call you out, make you wave, stand up, or dance.
However, we’d like to encourage you to fill out a Connect Card. If you do, we’ll follow up with you via email. We promise not to put any unfair pressure on you to ever come again. Although, we hope you will!
All first time guests receive a small gift as our way of saying that we’re really glad you came. To pick yours up, drop by the information table in the welcome center after the service.
We’re excited you’re considering joining us. We can’t wait to meet you!
No. On 5th Sundays we call those our Sabbath Sundays. These are the Sundays that we take time to rest. We spend an extended time with out families and loved ones.
