WHAT NOT TO EXPECT
Don't expect a traditional church building. We meet at Gemini Elementary School (2100 Oak St, Melbourne Beach, FL 32951), but it reminds us that the Holy Spirit can be with us anywhere we go.
SOME EXAMPLES FOR YOU
Our YoungLife (a ministry to public schools) background drives a lot of how we do ministry. The founder of YoungLife, Jim Rayburn, said, "It's a sin to bore a kid with the Gospel." We are committed to never doing this through Rock Harbor! The Gospel of Jesus is the most exciting Good News that the world will ever know. We don't believe our Sundays should be just a few worship songs and then a message, but an opportunity for us to share life and Jesus together.
The below videos were from when Pastor Kevin was the guest pastor at Faith Covenant Church (Westerville, OH) for the month of July in 2018.
Each week we invite all the children to come forward for the Brown Box. Each week one child takes the Brown Box home and returns with something that fits in the box and has never been alive OR is alive. Then Pastor Kevin or another church team member applies the object to a Biblical lesson on the spot. Check it out!
The weekly sermon isn't the only thing that matters, but we agree that it is very important and deserves to be a good as possible. We use the resources available to all pastor from Life Church, Elevation Church, Financial Peace University, the Bible Project, Awesome Marriage, and Hillsong to name a few to bring you the best message possible. Watch the sermon series "How to Change Your World in 52 Days" that Life Church has made available and see how Pastor Kevin preach it from his own context and how God leads him while using the graphics and videos from Life Church. This also gives Pastor Kevin about 15 hours of additional time to engage the community each week.
Every Worship Experience we strive to have different voices involved with the Brown Box, leading the prayers of the church, leading of the Lord's Prayer, reading scripture, and our favorite is when people share personal testimonies.
