The Rock Student Ministries

At The ROCK our goal is to see students become fully devoted followers of Christ through a four step process; EXPOSE students to the Gospel (Rom 1:16), EQUIP them to grow in their faith (2 Tim 3:16), CONNECT them to a community of believers (Rom 1:12), and CONTRIBUTE by serving God and others (Matt 20:28).

Senior High Winter Camp Jan. 27-29

The Rock Prince William

The Rock is the student ministry for 6th-12th graders. Our ultimate goal at MBC Prince William is that each student becomes a fully devoted follower of Christ. To accomplish this, we have four steps for students to get involved!

EXPOSE: Events, Camps, and Public Schools

EVENTS/CAMPS

Public School Campus Missions

Our first step in the discipleship process at The Rock is to EXPOSE students to the hope giving message of Jesus Christ. We are called to make an evangelistic impact on the next generation and we do this primarily in several different ways including events like New Years Aid (an all-night event on New Years Eve), camps (Winter and Summer), campus missions (EDGE Clubs, FCA, Young Life, and of course, personal evangelism. 

At the Rock, one of our greatest mission fields are the Public Schools. Our youth are encouraged and trained to become school campus missionaries to their public schools. We do this through strategic partnerships with a local public school campus ministry called EDGE Clubs. These are student-led Bible clubs that meet on local school campuses with an evangelistic focus. For more information visit www.edgeclub.org.

EQUIP: Sunday Services

"All Scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training up in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."  2 Timothy 3:16-17

The second step in our discipleship process takes place at our Sunday morning services where we EQUIP students to grown in their faith through weekly preaching of the Word.  Information on our Junior High and Senior High services below.

Junior High Services (6th-8th Grade):  9:00 am  A typical Sunday includes:

Worship: We do this through music, but also through corporate prayer times.
Group Ice Breaker/Game:  Students sit at round tables by grade, and each table has a volunteer leader
Message and Table Discussion:  Students benefit most by being talking with peers about the main points of the message. Leaders guide students through discussions based on previously assigned questions. We cover a range of topics.

Senior High Services (9th-12th Grade):  10:45 am.  A typical Sunday includes:

Worship: We do this through music, but also through corporate prayer times.
Message and Table Discussion:  Students benefit most by talking with peers about the main points of the message.  Adult table leaders guide students through this discussion based on previously assigned questions.

 

CONNECT: Discipleship Groups

"...that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith."  Romans 1:12

The third step in our discipleship process is to CONNECT students to a small group.  There are three main benefits a student will get by connecting to a small group.  First, they will connect with other students and prayerfully created Godly, long lasting friendships.  Secondly, they will accountability from their small group leader who's trained to be intentional in following up each student and answering their questions.  Thirdly, students will get involved in a deeper study of the Bible as they read, discuss and apply the Scriptures to their lives.  Junior High and Senior High small groups meet at the church.

Discipleship Groups are open for any Junior High and Senior High student on Wednesdays throughout the school year. Our goal for discipleship groups is to CONNECT students to a closer community of believers to encourage and hold them accountable while EQUIPPING each student to know and understand scripture. On the fourth Wednesday of the month, we have a volunteer training in which will not have discipleship groups. On these Wednesdays, we have Rock student choir practice in the main auditorium if your student wishes to get involved.

CONTRIBUTE: Service Opportunities

The last step in The Rock discipleship process is for students to CONTRIBUTE what they have learned by serving God and others.  There are a few ways this happens; one time local service events, student leadership, and missions trips.  Please see info for each below:

Local service opportunities:  Service Projects are done quarterly with their discipleship group so times and dates vary depending on what works best for the group.
Student Leadership:  Opportunities include Assisted Living Ministry, Sunday Teams, Wednesday Teams, Campus Missions, and Kid's Quest.  Contact bridget.omalley@mcleanbible.org for more info. 

Our assisted Living ministry is a great way for your student to serve. We minister to the Arbor Terrace Sudley Manor Assisted Living Home here in Manassas on weeks that we have Discipleship Groups (see calendar under previous heading) from 5-6pm. We visit with and sing songs to the  Dementia/ Alzheimer's group first from 5-5:30 pm then switch to the more mobile residents from 5:30-6 pm.
