What To Expect

We are temporarily gathering at La Gala on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM until WKU reopens and we can meet back at the Knicely Conference Center. 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.

Before the service

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 will maintain a safe social distance. If you would like more info on how we are following the state’s guidelines click here.

Kids & Youth

Unfortunately, until at least June 15 we will not have our Kid’s Program. Children will sit with there family during the service. When we can have one again, we 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.

During the service

Worship & Offering

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.

Teaching

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.

Prayer

To finish the service we sing one last worship song. We encourage people to worship, pray, and reflect on the teaching during this time.

After the service

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!
