34th Anniversary

We are celebrating 34 years of flourishing at Church on the Rock. What started in the hearts of Pastor David and Kim Blunt grew to be one of the largest multi-culture churches in the city.

Year after year we have seen God's faithfulness through the many changed lives and families introduced to COTR. All month long, in our services, we will celebrate the past and focus on the future.

Celebrate with us on November 4th and 5th our 34 years of God's faithfulness at Church on the Rock! We have an incredible service planned, including special guest, Charles Nieman!
