Serving as a Deacon

In his letter to the Philippians, Paul writes “to all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons.”  In the body of Christ at Philippi there were saints (members), and some happened to be overseers (pastors) and some happened to be deacons (servants).  As at Philippi, at Rocky Creek all three play a vital role in the health and effectiveness of the church. According to the Bible, deacons are to serve the people by helping…

Love Your Neighbor

Jesus told us in Mark 12 that we should “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength (and) ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”  That is easy to say, but not always seemingly easy to do.  Sometimes we really just want to pull into the garage, close the door, go inside and shut out the world.  But when we sit down and read God’s Word, we are constantly…
