We meet at the Knicely Conference Center on Sundays at 10:30 am. Our services typically last an hour and a half. There is no need to dress up; please be comfortable in your normal weekend clothes. When you visit, people will be friendly and greet you but not invade your space.
We have an excellent kids program. Due to Covid, currently, we only have a Kids Program for 18 months through 3rd grade. Our plan is by late summer to resume our Pre-Covid Kids Program for infants through 6th grade. Your kids will be with trusted and trained workers where your children can learn about Jesus in an age-appropriate way and in a safe and fun environment. We are open to receiving your kids 15 minutes prior to the service, and there will be a host outside of the Kids' space to help direct you where to go. Visit the Kids Program 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.
To finish the service we sing one last worship song. We encourage people to worship, pray, and reflect on the teaching during this time.
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 hang out and meet people who are sitting near you. We would definitely like to meet you!
