Getting to Service
It can be a little intimidating to walk into a new place. Before you visit, here are some helpful tips to make you feel more comfortable.
When & Where is Your Sunday Service?
Church on The Rock meets every Sunday at 10:30am in the
Homer High School located at 600 E Fairview Ave. Homer, AK 99603
Where do I go?
Upon entering the building, you will see a sign that says WELCOME. At that sign, you will find friendly people who would love to meet you, answer your questions, and help you feel at home with us.
Attending The Service
What is the length and order of events of your service?
In total, our service is about 90 minutes in length. Services begin with the worship team(band) inviting kids up through 5th grade to the front to sing and dance during the opening kids song. After this the kids are dismissed while we say hi to one another--we encourage everyone to say hi to anyone new, so though you may be welcomed one-on-one, you will not be singled out from stage. After this we sing one more fun and upbeat song with lyrics being projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After our introductory part of the service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus and The Gospel. At the conclusion of the message, we will respond by singing more songs, with the option to take communion, receive prayer, and give.
So What about money?
Though all members are encouraged to tithe, we do not encourage guests to give during their visit. At Church on The Rock Homer we have an open offering throughout the duration of the service with various receptacles placed around the room. You won't be singled out or asked to participate in giving.
What Should I Wear?
Whatever you're comfortable in. Most people opt for jeans, t-shirt and occasionally a hat. However, if you like the excuse to look extra good, feel free to wear something nicer!
What about my kids?
We believe that every single week at church kids should have a blast, learn about God, and be safe. For children ages newborn through 5th* grade, we have an automated check-in system to provide an added level of security. If this is your first time attending COTRH, we recommend using the button below to register your kids. If you are unable to do this before Sunday, we suggest visiting the Check-In table on Sunday morning 15 minutes before service start to allow time to register your kids, check them in, and get a quick tour of where they will be after the opening kids song. Find out more and register your kids using the button below!
*During summer months the Sunday morning kids ministry is birth through 3rd grade.
