Life is designed to be lived in community. We all need to connect on a variety of levels; from casual acquaintances to serving together to deep friendships. God designed us to be surrounded with healthy Christ-centered relationships. So our prayer for Rimrock is for everyone to be connected with others. Check out our small group opportunities.


242 Groups

Inspired by Acts 2:42, these groups will gather 3 times this fall and  are designed to help people connect to others in the Rimrock community. They are not Bible studies, prayer groups or “drop in” social groups. Rather they are an opportunity to simply meet and spend time with other Rimrockers. Email for more info.
