What to Expect

We know that before you decide to attend, you may have a few questions.  Below you'll see some frequently asked questions.  If you still have questions after reviewing this page, please us. 

FAQ's

Do I have to believe the same way you do before I attend?  Do I have to have my life together before I show up?

No Way!  At the|rock church we say, "Come as you are!"  Our philosophy is very clear:  you are free to belong, before you believe.  We know that everyone is on their own spiritual journey, and we want to help you know God better by encouraging you to take some next steps in your spiritual walk.

What should I wear?

Just wear clothes!  You are welcome to wear whatever you're comfortable wearing.  We have no dress requirement.  Everyone has their own style, so you'll see people wearing sandals, shorts, and flip flops to dress shirts and dresses.

Will I be called upon or be put in an uncomfortable situation?

Our desire is for you to come and investigate quietly and privately.  We will never call upon you, ask you to wear a name tag, or ask you to "stand out" in any way.  If you choose to fill out our Connection Card and take it to our connecting area, Connection Central, you will be given a welcome bag with more information about the|rock.  Your information is always private with us and we never sell or misuse any information you provide to us.

Will I feel pressured to give money?

We do not pass an offering plate at the|rock.  Our Biblical philosophy is that giving should be something that is planned and personal, and we never want to make it an issue of whether or not you attend church.  Our offering boxes are located in the lobby, as well as a Giving Kiosk located at the Information Counter.

What kind of music do you play?

Our music is contemporary and celebratory.  We play music from artists like Lincoln Brewster, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong United and David Crowder.  Sometimes we do traditional hymns in a contemporary style.  Our Music Team will inspire and encourage you.

What's your preaching/teaching style like?

Our style is Biblical, yet relaxed, relational, and relevant -- always with a little bit of humor!  We believe that God's message should always be clear and applicational.  You'll feel inspired and encouraged to grow in your spiritual walk.

What's available for my kids?
