United by the Core: Commitment to God & His Word


In a changing world, there is no greater comfort than the unchanging, enduring word of God. An unwavering, abiding commitment to the Word of God is at the very core of what unites us. “United By the Core” is a special all-location message series designed to encourage and unite our five locations. These three weeks in August will stir your heart and inspire renewed hope in the promises of our eternal God.

Meeting with a Pastor

If you would like to meet with a pastor for personal counseling or discuss questions, concerns or thoughts about The Rock, you can schedule to meet with one of them at this website:

Music Ministry Changes

We wish to thank Jeromy Darling for his many year of service as our Music Director. He informed us pastors two Fridays ago that he and his family decided to move on from The Rock. Jeromy has written a number of songs that we've sung at The Rock, led worship at our annual Faithwalkers Conference, and has mentored a number of musicians at The Rock and given them an inspiration for how to use music to spread the Gospel. We are grieved that the circumstances surrounding our church right now played a factor in this decision and we are grieving for the pain that his family is experiencing. Questions? Please contact Pastor Karl Quickert, 952-881-0567.

Rock Mission Week

July 18 – 22

For the first time in our 30-year history, all five of our church locations are leading a local mission trip this summer. We'll be out serving our community with acts of kindness, service projects, outreach projects, as well as times for fellowship and meals together. This mission trip is for students, singles, couples and families with kids (young and old).



It's free to register, however $50/person or $100/family is a suggested donation to participate.
