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).

The Rock Loudoun

THE ROCK LOUDOUN 

The Rock is the student ministry for 6th-12th graders. Our ultimate goal at MBC Loudoun 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 Outreach

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,[a] as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” - Romans 1:16-17

The first step in our discipleship process is to EXPOSE students to the Gospel.  Because of the power it has to transform a life, we are passionate about spreading the Good News of Christ to teens in the great Washington DC area.  Several times throughout the year we put on exciting events that make it easy for students to invite their friends to come and have a great time, but more importantly, to hear and respond to the Gospel.

ANNUAL CAMPS:  Winter Camps are in late January (for Senior High) and late February (for Junior High).  Summer Camps are in late June (for Senior High) and early August (for Junior High)

Senior High Beach Week - June 18-22 

Upcoming Events:

Time 7-10:00 pm. 

All Church Service Project - April 7th

Outreach: 

The primary method of organized evangelism at the Rock Loudoun is school clubs that give students the chance to share the Gospel with their friends. We partner with the organization Fellowship of Christian Athletes whose mission is to reach the students of Loudoun County with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through student led clubs that feature Bible study, games and food. We encourage every student in the Rock to join an FCA at their school! If you are interested in seeing a list of all the huddles present at each school, please click the link below!

EQUIP: Sunday Bible Study

"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 grow in their faith through weekly preaching of the Word. Information on our Junior High and Senior High services below.  

MIDDLE SCHOOL Sunday Services 9:00 am

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

Hang Out Time:  The first 10 minutes are designated for fellowship, Game, Announcements, and Prayer: Students enjoy a group game before finding out what's going on in the ministry and turning to the Lord in prayer

Message: Interactive Bible Teaching 

HIGH SCHOOL Services 11:00 am

Senior High Services (9th-12th Grade):  11:00 am in The Rock.  A typical Sunday includes:

Hang Out Time:  The first 10 minutes are designated for fellowship and Announcements and Prayer: Students find out what's going on in the ministry and turn to the Lord in prayer

Message: Interactive Bible Teaching

 

Connect: Small 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 creatw Godly, long lasting friendships.  Secondly, they will have accountability from their small group leader who's trained to be intentional in following up with 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. 

 SH Small Groups meet weekly at 43336 Julie Martin Ct., Ashburn.

Students enjoy social time, games, and snacks for the first half hour. We then have a short devotional and a time of intentional prayer. During the last hour, the students are split into small groups by grade and gender. Volunteers lead students in prayer and discussion about how God's Word applies to their lives. You do not need to register. Guests are welcome! Contact Charles with any questions.

 JH Small Groups

Small Groups meet weekly at MBC - Loudoun on the 2nd floor in the Rock. 

Students enjoy social time, games, and snacks for the first half hour. We then have a short devotional and a time of intentional prayer. During the last hour, the students are split into small groups by grade and gender. Volunteers lead students in prayer and discussion about how God's Word applies to their lives. You do not need to register. Guests are welcome! Contact Charles with any questions.

JH WEDNESDAY NIGHT from 7-9:00 pm.

 

 

Contribute: Service, Missions, and Leadership

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:
