When new to a church, people often ask, "Where do I begin?" We have a few steps that you can take to learn more about the church, meet people, and see where God would have you plug-in.
We suggest you get started with:
This 1-hour class is designed for you! We want to help you connect, meet new friends, staff and ask questions. Offered periodically at 10:30 am on Sundays. We will inform you when these are happening. For more information email
Our next First Step Class will be on March 14thth in the Gathering Place. This room is next to the welcome desk.
Beyond the introductory discussions, we really want to encourage you to jump into our Small Community ministries. (Click here for more info) They are a great way to break down the large Rimrock family into venues where you can appreciate being a part of the Rimrock Family, enjoy the community, and be encouraged in your walk with the Lord. Here are some quick descriptions of our small groups:
Wednesday Nights - (School Year). This is a night for the entire family. After sharing a meal together, children have fun and learn in the Kid's area while adults have time for the lesson and discussion. Childcare is also provided (babies through 4 years old). Dinner at 5:30 pm. Teaching and discussions from 6:30 to 7:45 pm. This ministry runs from September through the end of April.
Small Communities - Groups that meet periodically to connect through activities you love. Each group is designed for you to do what you enjoy with friends. We have racquetball, hiking, mountain biking, prayer, crocheting, to mention a few points.
Ministry Teams - These teams are groups of volunteers coming together with a common desire to serve others. Around Rimrock there is a huge array of teams to join based on:
Various groups that focus on ministry to babies, kids, youth, adults, women, men, urban and world missions.
Groups that focus on various interests such as technology, communication, outreach, helping others, property, clerical.
Groups that focus on relationships such as hospitality, care, hospital, meals.
Music Groups - singing, play an instrument, audio/visual
