Grow your connection with God and each other by joining an elevation group.



1. Attend a New Member Interest Meeting

The Interest Meeting is where the Membership Process all begins. We’ll ask you to share with us how you came to find us at Church on the Rock-New Haven.

We will also explain our basic theological perspective, tell you about our mission and vision, and begin the process of getting to know you, as you get to know us. 

2. Attend a very casual meeting with our Senior Pastor and his wife.

It’s NOT an interview. It’s a very friendly conversation. We just want to know some of your personal story. We also desire to share ours with you and answer any questions that you may have.

Our objective is to let you know that we are all too human. We are not some  “talking heads” who hide behind a pulpit. We are real people with real issues and we want you to know that we genuinely care about you and yours! We’ll conclude the meeting by praying for you and asking God to fulfill His purpose for bringing you to join our community.

elevation groups

Church on the Rock Elevation Groups are small groups designed to develop deep rooted relationships with God and one another. Our desire is that you will be engaged in a biblical community that helps you become more like Jesus in every area of your life.

Elevation Groups are an integral part of “being’ the church. Like iron sharpening iron, the relationships we form within our groups are essential to our growth as Christians.
