Church on the Rock missions exists to connect us with others as we partner together to build the Kingdom of God. Join us and help make a difference as we share in what God is doing locally and around the world.
We are all about reaching out into our local community. Below are a few of the ministries we are involved in. What is God calling you to do?
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL Every year we dedicate one week to the children of our community. Vacation Bible School is a place where kidz can come and learn about the love of Christ in a high energy, interactive and fun environment. Every VBS combines Bible stories, music, crafts, snacks, recreation and worship around a central theme. The facility is always transformed to give the kidz a unique experience that they will be talking about for the entire summer!
Every October 31st we offer a family friendly alternative to Halloween. We have games, prizes, live music, food, pony rides and lots of candy! Mark your calendar and join us for a night of fun that is safe for the entire family. By the way, it is all FREE!!!
COMMUNITY YARD SALE
We take loving others seriously. At the Lord’s leading, we open our front lawn to the community for a huge yard sale. Our goal is to extend the love of Christ to those who come onto our campus by providing a free spot with a table, chairs, live music, bottled water, and a free meal. The location of the church allows easy access for those who are looking for a good deal. We know that in uncertain economic times, something free can be a breath of fresh air. During the yard sale we intentionally offer the free gift of salvation to those who do not know Jesus. Watch our website and local publications for the next Community Yard Sale.
Each year during the Plant City Christmas Parade, we provide free parking on our property. We also offer free cookies and hot chocolate. The building is open before, during and after the parade for all those who need a restroom or a comfortable place to sit. We love our community and this is just another way for us to demonstrate the love of Christ to those right here in our own back yard. Our worship band participates in the parade with a beautifully decorated float that features live music and proclaims the birth of Jesus!

Shortly after the earthquake in 2010 we were able to get into Haiti to aid in relief and revival. The awesome power of God had begun to transform the people there. In the midst of the the rubble rose up a people that were hungry for the word of God and for the recovery of their nation. Our work in Haiti has consisted of: training of Pastors and lay people, building projects, VBS for children, AWANA club training, helped local orphanages, and lead revival services in churches in Port Au Prince and Central Haiti.
We were called to serve here and aid Iglesia del Camino. They have a bilingual church there that was the inspiration used by God for our own bilingual efforts. We have a strong connection to the Chaplaincy of the National Police Force there and God has used us to bless through construction, water purification, Vacation Bible Schools, and devotions in the police HQ’s. This trip is one that is great for the whole family. Many of those who have gone have toured volcanoes and Mayan ruins as part of the mission experience.
We have established a working relationship with a church in the Sindelfingen community near Stuttgart, Germany. Under the leadership of Pastor Steffen Kahl, we have been involved in the church’s efforts to reach their community through “Summer in the City.” We will continue to support the church in Germany and would love to see you get plugged in.
We have opportunities to minster, equip and evangelize the people of Honduras through a hometown connection with our Spanish Ministry Pastor Edwin Avelar. We work with local churches to reach out in their communities through Vacation Bible schools, open air evangelism, and Crusades.
