Jesus is Enough

Jesus is Enough. This little phrase is one we have repeated multiple times in sermons, life group studies, Facebook posts and so on and it is a phrase we want to carry with us everywhere we go, which is why we made some wristbands to help you do just that (available on Sundays). Our hope is that you can take this truth with you and be reminded of the joy and hope that can only be found in Jesus. Here is some additional insight as to what we mean when we joyfully say, “Jesus is Enough.”...Read More

2013 in Review

It’s hard to believe that 2013 is over and that we are already a month into 2014. While we have much to look forward to in this New Year, we wanted to take just a moment to reflect on what God has done in the life of Southern Hills during 2013. It has been exciting to see how God is using a very young church that is experiencing many things for the first time to impact the lives of people. There is no way that we can share all that happened this year, but here are some of the highlights:...Read More

Follow Me: Learning to Live the Commands of Jesus

Often when we are about to leave loved ones we make our final words to them important words. We remind them that we love them as we leave or as our wife leaves the house she reminds us of an important errand we need to run. When a manager leaves employees to run the store as he steps out he reminds them of work they need to take care of while he is gone. So what do we see from Jesus as He is leaving His disciples behind as He ascends back into Heaven? Listen to the final words of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of Mathew......Read More

Explore God

Does life have a purpose? Is there a God? Why does God allow pain and suffering? Is Christianity too narrow? These are just a few of the questions we ask ourselves as we consider our place in the world and try to make sense out of life. These are some of the biggest questions we will ever wrestle with and thus we need to invest ourselves into finding answers. On September 8, 2013 we will be starting a new series called, "Explore God," where we want to look for answers from the Word of God to these questions. Our goal in this series is to engage Round Rock in a spiritual conversation that will help us find peace for our restless souls by allowing God to answer these life altering questions. Whether you are in Round Rock or a surrounding community come out and join us as we explore God...Read More

Easter 2013 - Celebrating Eternity's Greatest Hero

With Easter being only a couple of weeks away we want to invite you to come and celebrate with us and take a moment to think about what Easter is really all about. The first thing that comes to mind for many when thinking of Easter cute bunnies or candy-filled eggs, but the truth is that Easter is about something infinitely bigger, it is about a Hero, THE Hero, who came to do what no one else could. Easter is an opportunity for us to remember that eternity's greatest Hero tasted death so that we might have life and we can have hope because of His victorious resurrection. Come and learn more about why Jesus is eternity's greatest Hero and celebrate the hope and the many promises this brings on Sunday March 31, 2013 at 6pm....Read More

Changed by Eternity

Starting on June 9th we will be kicking off a new series called, "Changed by Eternity." The Bible has so much to say about eternity. As we read the words of Jesus, Paul and others we are constantly confronted with the fact that this life is not all there is. You were created for something bigger and better than anything this life has to offer. When we realize what God is offering us in eternity it not only offers us hope in this present life, but changes how we see everything else in our life. So with that being said, come and join us Sundays at 6pm as we learn about the life changing difference of eternity....Read More

Pursuing Holiness For Joy

Over the next few months in Life Groups we will be studying what it means to pursue holiness in our daily lives. While thinking through this pursuit I have started to think about what should motivate us. Why should we run this race? Why should we pursue holiness on a daily basis? I believe we can find that answer as we look to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. The author of Hebrews shares why Jesus endured, even in the face of hardship and suffering....Read More

Treasuring God's Word in Your Heart

In Bible Study on Thursday night (8.22.12) we talked through the importance and value of Scripture memorization or as our passage described it "storing up God's Word in our hearts." Now you might be wondering where you can start. What verses would be good to memorize? I have listed out some really great verses that could be really helpful as you seek to fight sin in your life, find joy in God, comfort others by sharing the hope we have in God, press on in your pursuit of Jesus and even share the Gospel with others....Read More
