The Cross

The Cross

We can become attached to and cling to a lot of things in this world.  It might be your next vacation or adventure, maybe it's a promotion in your job, maybe its education or the education of your children. Pastor Adam encouraged us to cling to grace. To cling to God’s promise. To cling to the CROSS.  Christus Solus.  Christ alone.  It’s enough. It’s everything. 

Ministry

Ministry

f Jesus was who he says he was (the Messiah), his actions surely needed to match his words. This week we look into the famous incident of feeding the 5000 (which, incidentally, was counting only the men in the crowd) and examine some of the actions of Jesus as he lived a life of ministry and listened to the voice of his father. 

Blessings

Blessings

When we consider all that God is doing in the world today, it still happens one person at a time. The original founder and planter of Rockhills Church taught today on blessings:  being a blessing and receiving God’s blessing. It's more than just putting on social medial that you are #blessed.  But how do we do this “blessing thing” God’s way?  

Tested

Tested

Teaching Elder Stephen Eckert taught and used an example from C.S. Lewis’ Magician’s Nephew of how a good king is the first in the charge and the last to retreat. That is the kind of king we serve. Jesus put himself between us and Satan as He endured the testing and temptation.  We do not go through anything that Jesus has not already been through himself. We serve a good king who understands and knows our trials, temptations and tests in life. 

A "Good" Message

 A "Good" Message

Today Pastor Adam completed our study of Romans 8. Even though there will be hard times in all of our lives, there is a hope and a promise and a power bigger than us. Sometimes we confuse the goodness of God and his plan with what WE want and hope for in our lives. Could that be the case in your life? 

Hope in Jesus

Hope in Jesus

Suffering certainly is not anyone’s favorite topic and we all try to avoid it. Romans 8 speaks about suffering and that even creation experiences it. It is put in place to let us know this world is not the way its supposed to be and this is not our true home.  C.S. Lewis calls it . . .

Patience and Prayer

Patience and Prayer

This is our last week in James. In chapter 5, James gives some warnings, reminders and instructions about how we should live. These are given in a tone similar to the way a parent might instruct a child as they are about to leave home to help their child have a good perspective and a joyful, healthy life.
