What are Sundays like?
We meet Sundays at 10am. Our atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Come a few minutes early and enjoy some good coffee and conversation. The service begins around 10 am when we join with the band to express our thankfulness and love for God through passionate worship (sometimes that means some loud, Rock style Music).
During worship you may see people clapping with the music or raising their hands, reflecting quietly or kneeling, and at other times you may see somone dancing. All of these are examples of outward expressions of an internal spiritual reality that can be different for each of us. Painting, writing, and many other creative arts can be used as expressions of worship during this time. One can find these forms of praise and worship described in the Bible, but they are also common in our culture, If you have ever been to a concert or sporting event, you will feel right at home.
Usually after this part of the service, kids will be dismissed to their classes and we will pause for announcements of upcoming events and activities followed by an offering, which is an opportunity for us to support the mission of Rock Creek Church financially. There is never any pressure to give and as our guest you're free to choose how you would like to participate.
Following the offering we transition to the teaching time of the service. Pastor James endeavors to bring a message that is relevant, encouraging and challenging, presented in a relaxed, engaging and fun style. Rock Creek is a safe place where caring and trained people are ready and available to speak with you, or offer prayer and encouragement. Our hope is that, wherever you are on your journey, you will be enriched and encouraged here.
After the service Pastors James and Lisa would love to meet you in the lobby. We hope to see you this Sunday!
