Meet Rockland Community Church:

We are a community of people who are fixed on a mission. Connecting all generations to Jesus as we stand for the Truth of the Gospel, show God’s grace to all people, and raise up the next generation to do the same. These four values support our mission and help us learn and grow together:

Worship | Regular Gathering

Connect | Biblical Community

Serve | Active Involvement

Give | Generous Investment

Rockland Community Church  embodies, and is represented by, a cairn. On a hike, you're likely to see a cairn once in a while—a pile of stones to mark the trail and keep you headed in the right direction. (You'll notice this imagery in the cross in our logo). A cairn is intentionally left by someone that has walked a little farther down the road that wants people behind them to know the right way to take. We embody this at Rockland as we have a deep desire to see the next generation know the path that God has for them, as marked out by godly men and women that have walked the path already.
