What Is Your Next Step at Rocky Creek?

As April’s leadership focus is on guests, we have made some significant progress for this upcoming Sunday. We realized that we need a simple way to collect information from guests each week in worship, but we also need a simple way to move Rocky Creek members through our discipleship processes.  We worked hard to create a simple way to collect information from all people. We all have next steps in following Jesus. With that in mind, we decided to create…

Leaving Him With Friends

Parent’s Perspective on Rocky Creek Academy Dropping off your baby for the first time can be nerve racking and scary, but our experience was nothing like that at Rocky Creek! The teachers are wonderful! They are happy, communicate well with me as the parent, and love my children as their own! I can leave my baby at Rocky Creek not feeling as if I just dropped him off with strangers, but like I am leaving him with friends. In addition…

April’s Focus: Guests

It’s hard to believe that my family has been at Rocky Creek for 2 months now. So much has happened in these initial weeks that I feel like I have been here much longer than that!  So thankful for how God planted us here in this wonderful church. While the first few weeks were spent getting my feet under me and starting with the essentials, I believe we have hit a healthy stride and gotten together a great plan for going…

Grateful for Rocky Creek Academy

Parent’s Perspective on Rocky Creek Academy We have had at least one child attend Rocky Creek Academy since 2007. Next year, 2017-2018, will be our last year as our third and last baby will graduate from K4. Bittersweet. My children have been lucky to share the same wonderful experience year after year. They have shared the same kind teachers, the same playground, the same bright classrooms. The teachers and staff are the same today as they were in the beginning. In life today, that is special.…

Preschool Coordinator Announcement

From Berta Richardson (Preschool Coordinator) Most of you have heard me brag about my grandchildren, Julie and Gus, and have also heard another baby boy is due the end of April.   When I learned baby Charlie was on the way, I knew it was time to step down from the preschool coordinator position to be available for my family.   This decision is bittersweet  because I love each of you and your families.  I’ve said it many times and will say…

We’re Making Room for You!

In recent weeks as we have studied the Book of Jonah, God has been impressing on our hearts to open up the doors and pursue the people of Greenville county with the gospel.  I am constantly humbled to serve alongside this church that truly wants…

Thank You, Rocky Creek

I now consider that one of the great things He has done for me is allowing me the privilege to pastor you.  After the months of discerning God’s will with the search team, we were blessed…
