Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ that Love, Learn, Grow & Give glory to God.
The foundation of this mission is found in Philippians 1:9-11 which says:
“And this is my prayer, that your love may abound more and more [LOVE] in knowledge and depth of insight so that you may be able to discern what is best [LEARN], and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ [GROW] filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ [GIVE] – to the glory and praise of God.” – Phil. 1:9-11 (NIV)

Living Rock Church began as a planting of the LORD in 2002. In 2002, a group of families from Norwood Young America joined with other families from Parkside Church in Waconia to pray and organize as an Alliance Church plant. These families hired a young staff from Crown College, and Living Rock Church was born. From the very beginning, LRC has valued biblical preaching and worship, ministry to children and youth, along with missions and outreach, through our inviting Gospel family. For 17 years now, we have traveled in “tents” as a portable church, renting a few hours of space at Central Elementary School each week. Amazingly, God has drawing together a Christ-centered family from a wide region surrounding Norwood Young America. We believe Jesus Christ gives life to our church. He offers living hope for a dying world, and He will do the same for you! The vision of LRC is to move from a portable church in rented facilities, to a PLANTED church — established and flourishing — in our own ministry facility. That planted church will be located where our church offices are now! For more information, check out our PLANTED Campaign.
