We are a community of faith who enjoys celebrating God’s love! We know that in Christ we find unconditional love, value and acceptance. And so we have embarked on a journey toward a “walls down, arms open” experience of welcome and embrace.
It is our endeavor to offer a space for discovery and exploration of the gifts God has given to us all; and to learn how to share those gifts with the world. You are invited to share in this journey.
Worship at Rocky Hill is a community experience; services are creative and interactive, traditional yet fresh. In worship we practice listening to the Spirit through scripture, prayer, and song.
