FIRST TIME FAQS
Where do I find you guys?
We are located at 500 Schertz Pkwy between Dollar General and Arlan's Market. We have services every Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00 am both on campus and online at https://rockpoint.online.church. We would love to have you join us sometime and look forward to meeting you!
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you want. We care about you, not your clothes. Feel free to dress up if you like, or wear your normal "around the house" clothes. You will see all kinds at RockPoint.
Do You Have A Place For My Children?
Yes! RockPoint Kids is our Sunday morning experience for kids ages birth through fifth grade. They learn more about Jesus in a safe, fun, and age-appropriate environment. Learn more about RockPoint Kids here. Please note that RockPoint Kids is currently closed while we monitor the COVID-19 situation.
When Should I Get There?
Plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early. This allows you time to park, check in your kids if you need, grab some bottled water or coffee from our coffee bar (temporarily unavailable due to COVD-19), and find a seat.
What Should I Expect?
You can expect to be greeted outside the building by a few friendly faces that are genuinely excited to see you! Our greeters will help you find anything you need and answer any questions you may have. You will not be asked to hug anyone or do anything weird. We are simply grateful to have you!
Our worship services are casual and contemporary. You will experience current worship music, messages that are biblically-grounded and gospel-centered, and never be asked to "stand and greet the people around you." But you will find the environment friendly and welcoming! We believe God loves you and we look forward to seeing you soon. And please, never feel like you have to put on a fake smile. Just come as you are! If we can help you in any way, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why start a new church? What's wrong with traditional churches?
Absolutely nothing is wrong with traditional churches. People need to connect with God in places that meet their needs and speak their language, as well as places that will give them a strong foundation in faith. Unfortunately, ours is a generation that has largely abandoned traditional church. Every culture and generation must take the timeless truths of the Bible and seek to communicate them in a way that makes sense and is relevant to their lives. We hope that’s what you experience here.
Traditional churches do many things well and have much to offer. However research shows that new churches best reach new generations, new residents, and new people groups. Our passion is to complement the churches already in our area as we seek to reach those who are most unfamiliar with church.
In an attempt to reach unchurched people and be relevant, do you ever water down the Bible?
No, God’s Word is our final authority. We never ignore truth because we want people to like us, but we do try to package truth within the language of our culture so that people can hear it in a way that makes sense and feels relevant to their life. We use whatever we can to address the questions and thoughts already taking place in the conversations happening throughout our culture . . . in homes, around the break-room at work, over coffee or lunch. Whenever we gather we hope you experience people who are authentic and honest, people committed to exploring and pursuing Jesus while loving one another and serving our community.
How much does it cost to go there?
Nothing. RockPoint is supported financially by the people who have chosen to make it their church home. You will not find us trying to squeeze cash out of you every time you walk through the door. Giving should never flow out of compulsion or guilt, but rather out of desire to love God and be a part of what He is doing in and through the church. We do believe that generous giving is a habit of sincere Christ-followers, but do not expect you to give if you’re exploring faith or new to church.
Are you political?
No, we are not. We do not care who you voted for or what your political ideology is. We believe the church exists to declare the love of God given freely through Jesus Christ, not a political agenda.
