  1. Never heard of your church can you tell me alittle about it.. I’m looking for a church that’s alive n People actually speak to you

    1. Hi Pam! My name is Bob Starr. I attend the 11 o’clock service at Rock Church. I have attended the church from the beginning. I know I would love to meet you. My wife and I could show you around and introduce you to some of our friends here at church. We have about every flavor of person at Rock Church and we’re proud of that! I hope you make the time to come by!!! Just ask around for me when you come.
      God Bless You!!!
      Bob 🙂

  2. Its a great church. very down to earth, the messages are great!!! pastor Chuck takes the scripture and fits it to your everyday life. he preaches the Word in such a way that we can understand it then apply it to ourselves. Its just a awsome chrurch to go to and ull really enjoy yourself. Oh and beware our worship is very loud… but they are kind enough to supply ear plugs for those who need them lol

  3. Got to finally visit there a few years ago . Loved the service , music , and of course my friends for many years , the Tates . Keep up the good work , fight the good fight of faith . Until we meet again , down here , or, somewhere around the the throne .

  4. i am a man and I aborted a child with my then wife about 35 years ago. I ache and hurt soooo bad I could go crazy. I am haunted by what we did. What I did. I cant believe that Jesus could ever forgive me and I just dont know how to sit at church and feel like I shouldnt be just destroyed. I feel like such a slimy piece of manure sitting there listening to the music and Chuck. I just miss my unborn child and want to hold and say Im sorry so bad. I just dont know how to live with this

    1. Hi Joe!

      First of all, thank you so much for being willing to share your story. I’m sorry you have experienced such remorse and pain. The good news is this: the blood of JESUS is good enough to wipe out this past mistake. While YOU will never forget it, according to God’s Word, once you confess it to Him, He remembers it no longer. This means you no longer have to allow this forgiven sin to define you. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sin, He is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Notice it doesn’t say, “All except abortion.” All is all. You are forgiven…so it’s time to forgive yourself.

      The Word also says that in Him there is no condemnation. The enemy is the accuser. So when you sit in a church service and feel like ‘a slimy piece of manure’ please know that your feeling is not coming from God.

      This is a brand new day, Joe. You’re free.

      Praying for you!
