Miracles and Misses

In this series, we talk about types of MIRACLES we see God perform in scripture – but there are also times where God has positioned us, and placed us, to BE THE MIRACLE. And there’s the big question – when God’s positioned and placed us to be the MIRACLE – will we be the miracle – or will we be the one who MISSES? Will the person who’s been praying for something specific that you have the means to provide – will THEY be the one who MISSES out?

Don’t Count Me Out

The Daniel Dilemma

We’ve all felt the pressures and pains of this world filling in all around us, haven’t we? The Daniel Dilemma looks at how to stand firm and love well in a culture of compromise.

The Book of James

The Book of James is full of practical and challenging insight from James, half-brother of Jesus, that will help every believer grow in their faith and strengthen their walk with Christ.


Easter at Rock City Church

Everything we know about Jesus was brought to us by men and women who saw him after the resurrection, and they were willing to die for him.

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

If ever there’s been a motto for Rock City Church, it’s “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.” As we prepare to celebrate Year Seven and the incredible faithfulness of God in our first seven years, we are reminded of the importance of perseverance and the power of faith that leads to breakthrough.

Covenant Relationships

Even in this unstable world, some things aren't meant to be broken. Covenant relationships are powerful. Relationships have the power to make life great or to make life miserable. What are covenant relationships, and how can we get the most out of our relationship with God and with others?

Uphill Habits

Most people have uphill hopes but downhill habits. How would this year be different if each of us made the commitment to develop a few new, life-giving, biblically-principled habits?

Pathway to Legacy

The Pathway To Legacy New Year’s Eve message will highlight the four stages of dreaming that when successfully journeyed through will give birth to Kingdom Legacies. Looking at lessons from the life of Joseph the “dreamer” this message will inspire you to dream bigger in the New Year than ever before! As Pastor Chad has exhorted us 2018 will be our Legacy year as we continue to say YES to the dreams that God has given us!


When God speaks, everything changes.

What Time Is It?

One out of every 30 verses in the Bible talks about the return of Christ - often referred to as The End Times. Jesus discussed this topic often and 23 of the 27 books of the New Testament talk about it. So, how can we decipher the season and time we’re in? Are we living in the end times?

The Struggle Is Real

We all face struggles in this life, but God never intended for our struggle to be our story. In this message you will hear how God has designed us to shine, in spite of our struggles.

This is Living

A study of the Book of Galatians.

It Is Written

Have you ever struggled to understand God’s Word? Have you ever wondered why it is that so many people have trusted it and continue to trust it, even after thousands of years? In this series, we’ll learn how the Bible was written and how it’s been preserved over the course of millennia, why it can be trusted as God’s infallible word, and what it looks like to build a life on the foundational truths God’s presents in the Scripture. After just four weeks of study, we promise you – you’ll know His Word more, you’ll love His Word more and you’ll be ready to live His Word more fully!

Running With Giants II

Same great series, new giants! We are diving back into Hebrews 12, surrounding ourselves with men and women of faith who’ve run this race before us and finished strong. How would they encourage us? What can we learn from their stories of faith and how can we finish strong the race set out for us?

Being Rich In What Matters Most

A bigger house, nicer car, better vacations: wanting more isn't always bad, but are we looking for satisfaction in all the wrong places? This series outlines exactly how rich most people are and how God wants us to respond to his blessings. It will put a fresh perspective on what being 'rich' really means and how we can honor God with the richness of our finances, time, and hearts.


No one has ever come close to the influence and impact Jesus made and is still making today. No one has been studied more, talked about more, even ridiculed more than Jesus. And yet, when it comes to answering the question, “Who is Jesus,” you’ll get all sorts of competing thoughts and answers and ideas. In this series, we’ll answer the question, “Who is Jesus,” not based upon what WE think, but based on Jesus in His Own Words. Seven weeks, Seven I AM Statements Jesus made in the book of John, will give you fresh perspective and a deeper understanding of Who Jesus is and how KNOWING HIM changes everything.


There is a place of freedom inside of every one of us. A divine seed, planted by God, calling us toward something greater. Though there are many paths we attempt to take in life, hoping to find it, Jesus offers Himself as, not just the Guide, but the Way, the Truth and the Life. Discover the promise of God for your future and the way to hope and freedom in Christ.

Home For Christmas

This Is That

We tend to criticize and keep our distance from that which we don’t understand. And yet, there are truths in God’s Word that, though often misunderstood, have the power and potential to change our lives forever.

How To Survive a Shipwreck

Life is turbulent. On that we can all agree. Dashed dreams. Broken relationships. Wounds from the past. An ever-changing and divisive cultural and political landscape. There are so many ways life can send us crashing against the rocks. Sometimes life can feel like one, big, giant, endless shipwreck. And when it comes to shipwrecks, it’s really not a matter of if, but when. We all face shipwrecks in life. And when we do, the only question worth asking is, “How do we survive a shipwreck?"
This series was inspired by Johnathan Martin's book of the same title.

For The One

In this series we’ll answer these questions and more. What does Jesus have to say about our adversary? What does the Bible really say about evil and how to overcome it? I think you’ll be surprised at just how much of the Scripture is devoted to this topic.

America The Beautiful, A One-on-One Series

Some say America’s best days are behind her. We say God is still doing great things in and through these United States of America. In this series, we’ll be challenged and inspired by three stories of faith, family and courage.

Dangerous Prayers

There are safe prayers, and then, there are dangerous prayers - prayers that elicit a response from God in such a way as to lead us far outside the zone of our own comfort to begin the deep work of transformation by His Spirit in our hearts.

Kill Switch

Social media and technology are changing the way we communicate, the way we interact and engage with the world. It’s changing the way we process ideas and formulate opinions, and it’s changing the way we connect with one another. But is all of this change productive? Can some of this change be damaging? In this series, we’ll discover six biblical virtues that are being left in the wake of this social media revolution, and what God’s Word promises to those who reclaim them.

What Are You Waiting For?

If everyone has influence, why do so few people use it, but instead, waste it or misuse it? In Spheres, we're discovering what influence looks like, where it comes from and how to use it to make the greatest difference and impact in the world.

Courageous Leadership

The Book of Daniel

We are living in a culture that is rapidly changing and growing vehemently opposed to the things of God. How is a Christian supposed to live Godly in an ungodly age? The Book of Daniel reads like a manuscript for Christians living in times like these.

Our chains were broken on the cross. We were meant to live free.


It’s not your career; it’s not your family; it’s not your ability, gift, skill, talent, or money that brings meaning and purpose to your life.

It's a call to change the world. It's a personal invitation to join God in His unfinished work right where we are. It's a call to purpose - His purpose and ours - a purpose unfinished.
