Justice

Helping vulnerable victims of injustice and sin on behalf of Jesus Christ.

Listen to our sermon on Justice

God's call for His people to care about Justice permeates the Bible. Admittedly, however, we have much work to do in developing our Justice ministries at the Rock. We hope that as we prayerfully plan each ministry year we will increasingly participate with God in serving the victims of injustice in Woodstock and around the world.

As a start, we believe that God cares deeply about children, and especially children who are fatherless (Isaiah 1:16-17, James 1:27). Therefore, we aspire to make foster and adoption ministries central to our culture as a church in order to represent the heart of God in our world. This is a work in process, but one that is very dear to us.
