Reaching Out, Growing Up, & Giving All for What’s NEXT.
ROLLING HILLS COMMUNITY CHURCH
What is NEXT?
We’re inviting our community to embark on a spiritual journey together – to pray, to serve, to give, and invest in the things that matter – to posture our hearts to say, “God, use me.” It’s going to take all of us; it always has, and it always will. From the days when 15 people gathered together in an apartment complex to the campuses we now have that minister to thousands of people every week, it has always taken 100% participation.
It’s a God-sized assignment. It’s a God-sized call for all of us to lock arms together and to be God’s church in our day and our generation. May God find us faithful. We stand on the shoulders of those who’ve come before us and we’re going to leave a legacy for those who will come after us. What will they see? Will they see men and women of faith? Will they see men and women of courage? Will they see men and women who are bold and who live their lives for the glory of God? Let’s invest together and build God’s church. We can’t wait to see what God will do in our lives, families, city, and the world NEXT.
FROM PASTOR JEFF
Throughout history, God has called His people to take Next Steps in their spiritual journey. From Abraham leaving where he was living to go to a place God would show Him, to David and Solomon investing in building the Temple that stood hundreds of years for people to meet God, to Nehemiah leaving his successful job to go rebuild the walls around the Jerusalem, to the Early Disciples of Jesus who left everything to build God’s Church.
We stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. Christ-followers, like maybe your parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents who sacrificed time, money, and their lives to build God’s Church in their day and generation. And, now the call comes to each of us. What will we do for God’s glory today?
In January of this year, we celebrated 20 years as a church. From fifteen people meeting for a Bible Study in an apartment clubhouse to where we are today is only God. We are truly a part of something only He can do. And, now God is calling us all to what is NEXT. The NEXT 20 years, the NEXT …
Primary Goal: 100% Participation Secondary Goal: $20 Million
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Below are the steps that we are specifically asking you to take:
Ask the Lord for His guidance and wisdom, that He’ll prepare us as a church and prepare you individually for what He'll do through us all. Pray that He’ll draw you closer to Him and for His Will to be done.
1 John 5:14-15
Devote yourself fully
Prepare your heart for sacrifice and spiritual growth. What does this look like for you and/or your family? Ask yourself, “What would growth look like for me/us?”
Share with others (Friends, family, your Community Group, schools, sports teams, etc.) what the Lord is doing in your life during this season. Encourage others in their own walk and growth.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Stretch yourself to live and give in a way that takes you to the NEXT level for the Kingdom of God, following His guidance, and increasing your faith in all areas of your life.
1 Chronicles 29:12-14
Our hope and prayer is that every single person takes their NEXT step in discipleship and generosity. If you’d like to learn more please click below!
5 Visions of NEXT
At the heart of Rolling Hills, there’s a palpable anticipation—a resonance that speaks of the dreams we’re chasing, the legacies we’re building, and the lives we’re transforming. As we unveil NEXT, five profound visions emerge, encapsulating our aspirations from igniting the faith of future generations to extending our compassionate outreach globally. These pillars signify both our gratitude for the journey to this point and our desire to see God do immeasurably more in the future. Dive into our vision and witness the future we’re sculpting together.
