In the fall of 2007, a handful of families began meeting on the 380 Corridor with the goal of reaching people for Christ. They saw a need, a need for a church that would not only reach into many neighborhoods but would be a place that unchurched people would want to go to church. They also wanted to start a church that each of them would want to invite their friends and family to as well.
COC Official Launch!
In February of 2008, Rock Creek Church (formerly named Church of Celebration Metro aka COC Metro) hosted its first public preview service at Savannah Elementary School. 148 were in attendance that night. COC Metro continued to lease Savannah Elementary School on Saturday nights where they had church through the end of August 2008. As a result of their passion and vision, COC Metro was launched on September 7, 2008! 184 people were in attendance and the first membership was chartered with just over 50 people.
A year later, COC Metro, relocated to Paloma Creek Elementary School and soon after, a second Sunday morning worship service was added. After two years at Paloma Creek Elementary, COC Metro began to hold worship services at Navo Middle School and remained there until the fall of 2019.
Vision for First Campus!
On June 15, 2014, the church closed on 30 acres of land located at 2860 Fishtrap Road, Prosper, TX, where its current main campus is now located. On September 8 of that same year, COC Metro took residence on the land for its church offices and ministry center. On January 28, 2018, COC Metro held a groundbreaking ceremony for its first permanent facility on the 30 acres of land in Prosper and construction on Phase One (25,000 sq ft worship & children’s facility) of its main campus began in the spring of that year with a projected completion date in the fall of 2019.
In the summer of 2018, the leadership of COC Metro, led the congregation through a name change and rebrand that would be effective once the move was completed from Navo Middle School to the permanent facility in Prosper. After many hours and days of work, the leadership settled on the name Rock Creek Church and it was presented to the entire congregation on February 24, 2019, and was received with overwhelming confirmation.
Over the years there have been many changes, but our God-given mission and vision has never changed. The heart behind everything we do is to “Help People MEET & FOLLOW Jesus.” That’s what it was about in the beginning and that’s what it continues to be about still today. With so many wonderful years and moments behind us we confidently know that the best is still to come!
If you’re just getting to know ROCK CREEK for the first time, or if you’ve been here a while and are now taking steps to be involved, you’re a part of something big!
God is not finished
The story of ROCK CREEK has only just begun and the “Best is yet to come!”
