Adventure Church celebrates 20 years of serving the local community.
June 29, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Senior Pastor Rick Stedman of Adventure Church announced the church celebrated its 20th year of serving the community and loving people one at a time. The anniversary service was celebrated on April 5, 2014, 20 years after holding its first service on Easter 1994 at Rocklin High School.
Adventure Church was started by Dr. Rick Stedman. He and his wife Amy along with their children, moved to Rocklin in the summer of 1993. Feeling called by the Lord to plant a church in the Rocklin/Roseville area they worked with the Northern Christian Evangelistic Association (NCEA) to take those first steps to building Adventure Christian Church. Twenty years later, Adventure Christian Church has been blessed beyond anything we could have imagined.
"No one was more surprised by our success than me. Honestly, when I came to town, I had no staff, no mother church and no land. I had raised some support and had met a few people in this area, but really had no core group." shares Pastor Rick Stedman. "I just expected to meet people and love people one at a time and have a church that would grow slowly."
There have been four cores from the beginning that have built Adventure Church. "We love people one at a time, we teach the Bible, we connect people to God in prayer and worship, and we encourage people to invite their friends" adds Pastor Stedman.
Convenient services are held Saturday at 5pm and Sundays at 9 and 11am. Specialty services are held during the week with Celebrate Recovery held Friday at 7pm and Adventure Sunday Nights held Sunday at 6pm.
