Psalms – Worship

The worship leader at Rockhills Church, Josh Nunez, taught this week on the topic of worship. He started with a question about why it is that multiple people in the same worship service have completely differing opinions and experiences about sensing the presence of the Lord? He suggested that whenever we enter into the presence…

Transforming Love – Introduction

ADVENT is a season of intentionally pausing in order to turn our hearts toward the anticipation and celebration of Christ’s arrival in Bethlehem. While every day is holy on the journey with Jesus, Advent has been part of the ancient Christian calendar for many centuries. Many believers find it helpful and meaningful to set aside…

Psalms – Lament

Lament isn’t a word commonly used in our time and culture. It means “A passionate expression of grief or sorrow.”  In the Psalms – and in our lives with God – this can take the form of wailing, moaning, weeping, crying, sobbing and even complaining.

ROOTED – September 16

In our culture, when someone speaks of leaving a legacy, things like finances, status, land and homes are mentioned or assumed. The kingdom of God is often called the upside-down kingdom because Godly things and cultural things are often almost opposites of each other.  When thinking in spiritual terms, the fruit we leave is evidence…

ROOTED – September 9

The legacy of The Church continues to be written. You and I are playing a role in that legacy.  What kind of legacy do you long to leave for The Church of Jesus Christ?  Rockhills strives to be a church that looks like Jesus – not just like a random church that happens to be…
