Distinctive Discipleship [Series Overview]

On August 18, we begin an 8-week sermon series called Distinctive Discipleship. This has been a 20-month process of prayer, study, and practice to help craft a plan for how we truly make disciples in our church and beyond. I cannot overstate this hope of mine: I do not plan on this being a sermon series we engage with for 2 months and then move on to something else. I believe that if we utilize these biblical principles, we can…

Deacons are Servants

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…

The psalms cover every range of human emotions. This huge section of Scripture is often overlooked in preaching and teaching. Since each psalm is essentially independent of the others, it is a great summer series since people will be traveling more…
