We gather on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM at the Knicely Conference Center on WKU South Campus. At Rock Hills we know that going to a church for the first time can be an intimidating experience, full of questions like "What is going to happen?" "Will I be dressed right?" "What will the worship be like?" "Will there be people there like me?" We don't want you to be unsure about trying out Rock Hills Church, so here's what you will want to know.
There is no need to dress up, so feel free to come in casual clothes. When you walk in, people will be friendly and greet you but not invade your space. Free coffee and donuts are available, and you are welcome to bring your food and drinks into the service.
We also have an excellent kids program with trusted and trained workers where your children can learn about Jesus in an age appropriate way and in a safe and exciting environment. We are open to receiving your kids 15 minutes prior to each service, and you can go to the Welcome Center in the youth room to find out where they should go. Visit the Kids & Youth page.
We start our services with worship by singing songs to God. The worship music is current, ranging from modern hymns to gospel songs. Some respond naturally to God's presence by raising hands, kneeling, or clapping. We just want you to worship in a manner that's real; for us at Rock Hills, this means low-key, non-hype, heartfelt responses to the Living God. We also set aside time during our services for those who would like to give to God's church. If you are visiting there is absolutely no obligation to give.
After announcements, one of our pastors will teach from the English Standard Version of the Bible (if you don't own a Bible, we give them away free). Because we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, we teach it as it is rather than teaching our own opinion. We aim to teach the Bible in a way that is clear and understandable to all, regardless of church experience, and also in a way that challenges us to put it into practice.
As the last worship song plays at the conclusion of each service, those who want prayer will be invited forward and someone from our prayer team will pray for you. Nobody will pressure you to go forward to receive prayer, but the opportunity is there if you have things you'd like God's help with.
The service lasts for an hour and 15 minutes; we start on time and end on time, so you can make plans for the rest of your day. Please feel free to hangout and meet people. We would definitely like to meet you! For parents, please pick up your kids within 20 minutes of the service ending.
