  1. Salt Lake Location Transition

    Leave a Comment

    Salt Lake Location

    You may have heard the difficult (yet exciting) news that after 13 years at our Salt Lake location, we are closing this chapter of our Rock Church Ministry. Saturday, September 10 (7:00 p.m.) will be our last church service in the Red Warehouse (please join us for a celebration, by the way!). The good news is, we are excited to have most of these wonderful people join us at our Draper location and start a brand new Third Service on Saturday nights starting October 1!

    Needless to say, there has been much prayer, counsel and tears… which has ultimately led to much excitement about this huge move. Change is never easy, but we honestly believe that God is leading us into a new, much better position of strength as a church. Through all of this, we have learned some things about church planting and specifically about putting people in a position job-wise that fits their strengths. We will be able to do this better now. Please keep all those involved in this transition in prayer and believe with us that God is going to get the ultimate victory.

    We would also encourage you to listen to Steele Croswhite’s message in which he explains in more detail the story of how and why we came to this decision.

    Grace, Peace, Faith, Love message

    Excited in faith,

    The Pastors of The Rock Church

  2. Teach What Is Good

    Teach What Is Good

    This past Friday (February 12), we had a Cookie Exchange for our newfound Ladies Night for our Salt Lake City location (Every second Friday of the month!) It was encouraging to see women meeting new women, breaking down walls, and building community. It was a success to say the least, especially if you measure success in number of cookies exchanged.

    It was a shining moment for our grassroots Women’s Ministry. I’ve recently been learning that a Women’s Ministry doesn’t have to be this fancy, formal, organized program. But, it does have to occur. It’s the day-in, day-out, lived and breathed moments women share with women. And guess what? This is a Biblical idea.

    God commands women to learn from other women through Paul in Titus 2.

    “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”

    Paul used the Greek word Kalodidaskalous, which has since been translated as “Teach what is good.” Kalodidaskalous is a way of teaching through combining example and behavior, character and lifestyle. Paul is essentially saying, “Teach by your character, but show by your lifestyle.” It’s one thing to teach what is good through instruction; it’s another thing to teach what is good through lived example.

    It’s important to understand this isn’t about age. This is about spiritual maturity. A mentor, or someone who is spiritually mature, is one who “has a more complete puzzle of life assembled, guiding me in the placement of my missing pieces.”

    Practically, this means we need to be in relationships with others. We can’t learn what is good through an isolated incident. Ask God for humility to start this kind of honest, “teach-what-is-good” relationship in your own life. Ask God for humility to be transparent with another woman so she can learn from you. Ask God for a humble heart to be taught.

    “Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.” (James 4:10)

    Whether it’s over a new cookie recipe, meeting weekly over coffee, or during your child’s naptime, be a Titus 2 woman – one who is not too proud to ask for help, and is never too proud to learn.

    Learning and Teaching,
