The Rock Church

Serving

Why should you serve?

"Each of us should use whatever gift he's received to serve others" 1 Peter 4:10.

For The Rock Church to run smoothly, each weekend requires a lot of help. Without the faithful commitment of hundreds of volunteers, it would next to impossible to successfully conduct weekly church services at each of our different locations! There are opportunities for all kinds of personality types and abilities. From the tech-savvy, to the kid lover, to the people person, to the person who loves to be behind the scenes, there is a place for you to serve at The Rock Church.

Above all, if you consider The Rock your church home, we encourage you to lend a hand. This not only helps the overall operation of our church, it also helps our community of believers advance the kingdom of Christ!

Check out our message from the “Grow Up” series to hear more about how the simple act of serving coffee at church builds the kingdom of God.

      Because we love and value your children, and want to protect them, we have a computerized Check-In System. Parents are REQUIRED to check their children into our Sunday School Program so that no one can “claim” your children but you! For more information, please visit the Check-In Desk in the Sunday School hallway. Children from Nursery to 2nd grade will be kept in their classroom until they are picked up by a parent. Grades 3 through 6 are released at the end of the service to go and meet their parents.

      A shepherd stays with each Sunday school class as they rotate through the different workshops, providing stability for the kids so they’re accompanied by the same person each week. Shepherds are basically teacher’s aides, lending a hand and helping keep order throughout class time. Time of serving is during the message, and commitment is for one month at a time.

      Do you want to have an influence on future generations? Here is an opportunity that will have a profound impact for years to come. By watching over our little ones during the service, you’re able to share the love of Christ with innocent impressionable minds while giving their parents a brief break. Need to arrive 15 minutes before each service.

      Same as above, but the kids are just a little bit older – which means it’s even more fun! When it comes to small children, it just doesn’t get any better than the ages from two to four. Don’t miss such prime moments! Need to arrive 15 minutes before each service.

    • More Info

      The Rock Church has one of the most innovative Sunday school programs ever. Using the revolutionary new workshop rotation model, you will teach a major Bible story or concept via one of our kid-friendly multimedia workshops — art (Creator’s Studio), cooking (Garden of Eat’n), video (Holyword Theater), or games (Adventureland). Your class rotates each week, so you only prepare one simple lesson (curriculum provided) and teach it to a different age group (K-6) each week. Time of serving is during the message, and commitment is for one month at a time.

    • Hospitality
    • More Info

      This one is pretty self-explanatory, huh? After each service, you’ll stay and help with basic tasks such as sweeping, mopping, cleaning restrooms, vacuuming, emptying trash, etc. Very simple, and very important!

    • More Info

      I think you already understand the immense importance of coffee at The Rock! There is usually one person per service preparing coffee and another person is responsible for picking up cookies. First-service workers arrive 30 minutes before service starts. Working together as a team, they keep everything stocked for the morning and usually close down and clean up about 15 minutes after the last service is over.

    • More Info

      Here’s the perfect opportunity if you’re a people person! Involves preparing and handing out programs before the service while greeting everyone with a smile. Should be comfortable approaching complete strangers and engaging in conversation, making them feel welcome and at home at The Rock. Need to arrive 30 minutes before each service.

      What a perfect way to help children and adults hide God’s Word in their hearts. Primary need is for helpers to quiz people in between services. You could do this once or twice a month, or there are also other little tasks such as taking pictures, printing certificates, helping out on “store” day, etc., that may be done on a periodic basis. We would really like to expand and enrich this program!

      Here’s something that anyone can do! All you really need to do is point cars in the right direction and beat people up if they get out of hand (OK — maybe not quite that severe). And since we care very much about protecting our Christian sisters as they walk through city parking lots on dark nights, we prefer that this ministry is handled by the brothers.

      Yup, this is just what it sounds like — turning on lights, unlocking doors, placing our signs on street corners, straightening chairs, etc., making sure everything looks good and is ready to go. It typically takes about 30 minutes to do the initial set-up, then about another 15 minutes for a few miscellaneous tasks once the service starts.

    • More Info

      This is your opportunity to help distribute CDs, books, Tshirts, and other Rock paraphernalia. Times of serving last 20 minutes before services and about 30 minutes after each service, for one month at a time. It’s a big plus if you’ve had any prior retail experience. It’s also very helpful if you have a decent knowledge of The Rock and our ministries. Minimal training is required.

    • Technical Arts
    • More Info

      Another great way to enhance the mood and vibe of our worship experience. But this also takes skilled technicians who know what they’re doing, so some training is required.

    • More Info

      Assist with setting up and running the Media presentation throughout the service. It’s beneficial if you have at least a minimal knowledge of PowerPoint software, general idea of how a computer works, good at troubleshooting, but most important is a heart to learn and serve. Some training is required, and workers must arrive 1 hour before each service.

    • More Info

      The great sound we have at The Rock doesn’t come from expensive equipment. It takes skilled technicians who know what they’re doing, and that’s why it adds so much to The Rock experience. Training is required, and workers must arrive about an hour before service for sound checks.

Planning Center Online

Planning Center online is a simple website that we utilize to manage and organize all our servants at the Rock Church. This allows us to best serve our church family in an efficient way. It also acts as a central location for communication between the ministry leaders and their teams to let them know current needs, information and when looking for replacements.
