River Rock Community Church

What to Expect

OUR SPACE: Our space says it all. It is open, industrial, raw and unfinished ... just like us. We don't pretend to be something we're not. Just real people on a journey to wholeness in Jesus. 

OUR STORY: River Rock Community Church consists of people whose lives have been unalterably changed by God’s grace and love; and we desire to share His grace and love with others.

We celebrate and worship God everyday: at work, school, in our neighborhoods, always striving to honor our Triune God and be Jesus to others. We gather together regularly to build up the family of God by supporting, encouraging and challenging one another.

OUR CHILDREN: God has been adding children to our commuity and we are delighted!  

Our new children's ministry is called 'PEBBLES.' There are four age groupings: yellow pebbles (ages 0-2), green pebbles (ages 2-5), blue pebbles (ages 6-7) and purple pebbles (ages 8 and up). 

During the Sunday worship gathering (10 AM), all children worship with their parents during the opening music. There is a nice, large, carpeted area with chairs and toys on the right side of the worship room for parents and younger children to play, nurse or relax. Please enjoy it during the worship gathering.

After the opening music, Pastor Jimmy invites the children up front for a 'Pebbles Moment,' and after a brief lesson, prayer and blessing, introduces the Pebbles teachers for that Sunday who lead the green (ages 2-5) and blue pebbles (ages 6-7) to nearby discovery rooms for Pebbles Worship. There they are prayed for, cared for, taught a Bible-based lesson at their level, have media, craft and activities to reinforce the lesson, are offered healthy snacks and enjoy some active play. Naturally, it is up to each parent to choose whether or not you want your child to participate in the green and blue pebbles experience. 

While the pastor's message is happening, yellow pebbles (ages 0-2) and purple pebbles (ages 8 and up) stay with their parents in the sanctuary. Please remember the nice, large, carpeted area with chairs and toys if you and your child need space to play or privacy to nurse.

At the end of Pastor Jimmy's message and as music resumes, a slide appears on the big screen asking parents to retrieve their children from Pebbles Worship so we can all worship together.

OUR VIBE: We work hard at leveling barriers that would hinder people from engaging with God. The atmosphere of our worship gatherings is casual and safe, warm and real, focused on honoring Jesus and those He brings to engage with Him. Be yourself. You are accepted just as you are. Some come wearing jeans and t-shirts ... some with dresses and sport coats. God has wired us all uniquely and we celebrate that. Come and be uniquiely yourself.

OUR INVITATION: Whether you are new on your journey of discovering who God is or have been walking with Him a long time, we invite you to explore what God is doing in the community of River Rock Church. Our desire for you is that you would find at River Rock a safe place to belong.

but also in the sight of man." 2 Corinthians 8:21(ESV)
