Church isn't a building or a meeting, it is people.
People who are living their lives in relationship with God and with others.
Church at the Rockhouse meets at 11am on Sundays during the semester.
The Rockhouse is located on the corner of Dickson Street and Arkansas Ave, across from Old Main Lawn and Bank of America.
What to Expect
Sometimes it helps to know a little bit about what to expect when going some place new. If you come to the Rockhouse on a Sunday morning, we hope you'll feel like you can be yourself. There are couches to sit on as well as tables and chairs. We sing together, share communion and someone teaches from scripture (the Bible). We also spend some time in smaller groups talking about what God's been teaching us, asking questions, sharing doubts, and praying for each other. Come as you are, be yourself and expect that God will do something.
The image we have in scripture is one of a body, where all parts must be recognized and functioning in order for the body to truly be healthy. This means that while we all have our own saving relationship with the God of the universe through Jesus, following Jesus is not merely an individual endeavor. Learning how to seek God together, how to best encourage one another, and how to love and serve others in the name of Jesus together doesn’t “just happen” very often. It comes from investing time in relationships and being real with other people (That’s why CORD communities are another point of emphasis in what we do).
The Church, God’s people, incorporates the whole body of Christ. It includes people from all nations, cultures and ethnicities. People with all sorts of different understandings of, and experiences with community and family, people with differing personalities and interests—all at different stages in their journey of seeking and becoming more like Jesus. As such, when we come together, we often gather with people who may look, sound and do things differently than ourselves.
So, if you’ve ever questioned whether you’d fit in, the answer is Yes!
