College is an environment charged with exciting ideas and opportunities. But freshman students, living away from home for the first time, are also often overwhelmed with new freedom and choices. Students and parents want to make the transition as smooth as possible, and universities provide guidance through the academic maze, but what about the spiritual and life decisions that emerge during the college years?
The Rock works through the local church to provide a relevant resource for the Christian's growth while away from their church family, and works as a safe place for non-Christians asking spiritual questions and dealing with conflicting world views.
The new freedoms available in college can also be temptations. There are many new lifestyle choices available in college, and peer pressure is real. A loving church family and a good fellowship of Christian friends can make the difference in resisting harmful temptations.
The Rock offers informal weekly Bible studies, worship services, retreats, and mission opportunities. We want to facilitate deep, loving relationships, and positive academic and extracurricular experiences. Our theological foundation is a mainstream, inter-denominational Christian belief system. Jesus Christ's birth, death, and resurrection, are the heart of our salvation message to the university community.
Your son or daughter's involvement with The Rock during their college years is something that we consider a privilege to share with you. We want to offer spiritual guidance that will deepen their walk with God long after graduation and make you proud of the continuing Christian heritage first instilled by you. Most students make choices in college that shape their adult life forever. We believe that God's hand can make that shape a masterwork.
We welcome your questions and our pastors look forward to meeting you whenever you can visit our church.
