Why are we adding a second RockPointe location?
Over the last several years, RockPointe Church has experienced an average of 11% growth year after year. That growth has impacted all of our ministry spaces, especially in our children and student areas.
Five years ago we moved in to 30,000 sq ft of new space. Recently, our ministry leaders have sought any creative & efficient uses of space, on Sunday morning and throughout the week. We added parking places and parked cars on the grass. But none of these are nearly enough: we regularly run children & student rooms beyond maximum capacity, limiting our options to “make more and better followers of Christ”.
We assembled a diverse team tasked with strategically assessing available expansion options to respond to our need for additional space. Suggestions evaluated were building on our current land, renting and renovating a vacated grocery store building, and building new on land nearby. A tremendous opportunity presented itself just 3 miles down the road at Parker Square. This opportunity would quickly double our space allowing us to invite more people, provide more class space and equipping opportunities.
How was the decision made to move forward with the Parker Square location?
We held a vote in services on May 12, 2019. Our church body voted overwhelmingly in favor (96%) of moving forward with the purchase of 500 Parker Square.
Which staff members will be there?
All of our staff. We are one church, two locations. Our pastors will rotate in preaching between the two sites.
Is this a church plant?
This is not a church plant. The Parker Square location will have the same leadership, elder board, deacons, and staff.
Why are we doing this? What's our goal?
RockPointe’s mission is to make more and better followers of Christ and in doing so we always want to be able to receive people and make room for everyone.
This is a great outreach opportunity and provides a great solution to the challenges we are experiencing.
When would this happen?
If approved, fall 2020.
What will become of our current property?
We will keep meeting and doing worship at our current location as we always have.
Where will we be in Parker Square?
Parker Square is located 3 miles east of our current location on FM 1171. As you head east and turn left (north) at the stoplight (Parker Square Road), you will face the area of the building.
What is happening to Sunday morning Adult Discipleship classes this fall?
Sunday morning Adult Discipleship classes will be moving to the new Founders location next to the main church campus starting this fall.
Who is this for?
It’s for everyone – children, students, college-age, adults. With more space, we will be able to accommodate more adult discipleship classes, open up more space for children and students, and create greater opportunities for our college-age group.
What will the new location be?
Currently, the location is a school called Founders Classical Academy located in Parker Square.
Will there be worship services there?
Yes. We will have worship services there.
