Family camp 2017 tv title

2017 RH Kids Family Camp: Camp Quest. "Can you dig it?"

July 18th - July 21st, 2017

$0 - $40

Family Camp is where parents come with their kids each night to camp and have just as much fun, instead of dropping them off like a traditional VBS.

Come early each night and bring a picnic dinner as you have a chance to fellowship with other families. This is a great event to attend with your community group, invite friends, or meet new families.

Family Camp is going somewhere we have not gone before! Not to a galaxy far far away, nor back to the Olympics. We are going on a Quest! We will be modern day adventurers in search of dinosaurs, the truth in the Bible, and of course fun. This will be one of the best weeks of the summer and don’t forget, family camp is for the whole family! We hope you join us on the Quest and can’t wait to see your little adventurers out exploring God’s creation down on our field this July!There will be an optional campout Friday night small breakfast on Saturday morning for those packing up.

We do have a few scholarships available. Please contact Donna at donna.huchette@rollinghills.org for more information.

Community Group Basics Experience | Nov 12, 2017

November 12th, 2017

What is the CG Basics Experience? CG Basics Experience is designed not to be another class, but instead an actual experience--where you can become familiar with the actual happenings of a real Community Group. You will hear about and participate in each segment of the experience as well as walk away with a better understanding of what CG life is like, what it involves, and more.

What can I expect when I come? We will start with a light meal. After that we will walk through each element of a Community Group (discussion and questions are encouraged). This is not a "normal class." You will have the opportunity to participate throughout.

Are children welcome? Yes, children are welcome! We will all begin together with sharing a meal. Then we will split off with parents staying and children going with a certified childcare worker to a classroom.

We’re very excited about this opportunity to help expose more of our families and individuals here at Rolling Hills to Community Group life. We highly recommend you attend!

Family dedication 2016 event banner

Family Dedication | November 19, 2017

November 19th, 2017

WHAT IS FAMILY DEDICATION? In Deuteronomy 6, it is very clear that God expects and desires parents to raise and influence their children to love the Lord in every part of their lives. To that end, we at Rolling Hills want to help facilitate and value every family making disciples of their family members. One way we have tried to uphold this important value is by providing opportunities to do family dedications. A Family Dedication is a ceremony where the parents make a public declaration to raise their children to live lives of faith in God through the truth of the Bible and ask for the members of the church to support them in that endeavor. It is not a ceremony that saves your children, but a parental decision to influence, train and equip your children to one day choose to follow Jesus for themselves. Family Dedication ceremonies typically happen three to four times a year during our Sunday Gatherings. We also would encourage you to dedicate your child in a more personal, intimate setting, if you prefer. It is not required to dedicate your children in front of everyone at a weekend church gathering. Sharing this special occasion with your Community Group or immediate family and friends is equally impactful, and can open the opportunity for out-of-town family and friends to share this commitment with you.

WHO MAY DEDICATE A CHILD? Any follower of Jesus who is making the choice to commit their life to modeling the ways of Jesus as revealed in the Bible to their child, or children, is welcome. If you are the only parent who is a Christ follower, or similarly, if you are a single parent, we welcome you to be part of a Family Dedication ceremony.

WHAT IS REQUIRED? The primary requirement is that you, as parent/parents, have made a choice to follow Jesus by faith. If you haven’t made this decision yourself, please contact us so we can explain how to invite Jesus into your life and take the next steps to grow in your newfound faith. We would also ask that you consider Rolling Hills your church home if you are going to dedicate your child/children here. If you consider Rolling Hills your church home and have not yet become a member, we encourage you to attend RH Engage at your earliest convenience.

DOES ROLLING HILLS BAPTIZE INFANTS? We do not baptize babies at Rolling Hills Community Church. Although infants and very young children belong to God (2 Samuel 12:23), they do not have the capacity to repent and believe in Jesus Christ. The dedication of a child does not ensure a child’s salvation, but is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your desire and willingness to teach your child the truths of God’s Word. We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is only for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The act of baptism is a step of obedience in following Jesus’ example and will follow a personal faith decision (Acts 2:41). In addition, Rolling Hills offers Baptism Orientation Classes for elementary kids through adults. For more info on this baptism, go to the Baptism information page on our website.

DOES DEDICATION GIVE MY CHILD ETERNAL LIFE OR SPECIAL FAVOR WITH GOD? No. However, it is the best and wisest way to set up your children for success in following Jesus as they grow up into maturity. There is nothing mystical or powerful in the act of dedication itself. Dedication does not merit favor with God or earn your child eternal life. As the Apostle Paul said, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV)
