ABOUT THE ROCK CLEVELAND

Located in Garfield Heights, OH, at The Rock we try to take a simple and straightforward approach to church. With a warm and loving atmosphere we want people to know that faith isn’t a guilt trip. Christianity is relevant, church can be meaningful, and a relationship with Jesus is life-changing. You won’t find anyone here trying to pretend to be spiritual superstars. We are real people who are committed to deepening our relationship with God and others.
 
We are committed to traditional and vintage Christian beliefs; however, no matter where you’re at on your spiritual journey, we want you to know that you’re welcome here. We want to be a safe place for you to explore authentic Christianity or grow in the faith.
 
We are also deeply committed to service, justice, and compassion. We desire to see transformation of our people, our homes, our neighborhoods, our cities, and our world through sharing the Good News in meaningful and practical ways.
 
We desire to connect people to Christ through personal and corporate worship. We desire to connect the body of Christ through small groups. We desire to connect the disconnected through service and sharing the gospel.
 
We value truth, diversity, holistic outreach, spiritual community and kingdom partnerships. Read our complete value statements.

EVENTS

ONLINE GIVING

 
Everything we do at The Rock happens because of the support of our members, attenders, and friends. Without their tithes and offerings it would be impossible to provide the ministries that are touching and changing lives every day.  As a service to you we have provided the option to support the outpouring of The Rock through a convenient and secure online giving site.

I always thought that my earthly relationships never affected my relationship with God. However, I have recently learned how untrue that is. As I look back over my life I see how I have dragged my relational disappointments and hurts onto God. Somewhere along the way I deemed God as unreliable, …

Expectations

EXPECTATIONS

I spend much more time than I’d like to admit trying to navigate other people’s expectations of me. In any given decision, responsibility, or scenario I wrestle with what it would mean to others for me to respond in a particular way. The truth is, I want others’ approval …
