The Rock Community Church is located in Littleton Colorado, minutes away from the majestic Rocky Mountains.

The Rock Community Church is a dual denominational congregation with its roots stemming from the Baptist General Conference (Converge) and the Mennonite Brethren. We are a real church for real people. We are committed to reaching people for Jesus Christ and teaching them to grow and live a life pleasing to God. Our church has attracted many people from different denominations and backgrounds—we all live and worship together.

On Sunday mornings we offer two worship service times, a wonderful children’s ministry as well as many discipleship oriented classes. Throughout the week, several thriving ministries meet including high school, middle school, and Awana. We are a church who believes life happens in community and therefore strongly encourage congregants to participate in prayer and growth groups. We are committed to our community in many ways through various care ministries such as grief share, divorce care, Celebrate Recovery, a food bank and Financial Peace University, to name a few. Nationally, our mission field expands to other churches in Colorado and Utah. Globally, we are involved in Argentina, Africa, Nepal, and India, as well as other countries. The Rock Community Church is an exciting, growing church that is reaching people who need Christ, growing people in Christ, and serving people through the Holy Spirit.
