Welcome to The Rock
The Rock Church was started in Danville Illinois, in a house in 1973 by Paul and Eleanor Stern. Randy And Bonnie Downing were asked to become pastors in 2001. Ten years on the mission field, and the ability to connect generations to kingdom purpose made a good fit. The church grew when youth encountered God in radical ways and parents saw the change and they came to Christ.
We have planted churches sent out missionaries, and impacted cities. We are moving full steam ahead with excitement at what God is doing through our local church. The move of God that is happening here is something you must experience. Join us on this journey into God’s greatness!
What to Expect
We believe that church should be a place that is full of life, excitement, and the transforming presence of God. Our worship is high energy and passionate, we teach from the Bible in a powerful but practical way, and we love others compassionately. Every week lots of people are finding hope and encountering new life during our weekend experience. From the quality nursery and fun-filled children’s service to the relevant, inspiring teaching , and missions trips to places like Kenya, Bulgaria, Mexico, and China , and a 10,000 square ft. warehouse for youth, there is something for everyone! Most importantly, you’ll experience the Life changing greatness of God.
