More Than Stories

Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, Joseph and the coat of many colors, and David and Goliath. For many of us these are stories that we grew up with. We heard these stories from our parents and we learned them in Sunday school. Even if you didn’t grow up in a Christian home you can probably describe with some accuracy the Garden of Eden or identify Noah as the man in the picture who is loading animals onto a giant boat. These stories, and many others, have been passed down for thousands of years, they have stood the test of time. Generation after generation of parents have told their children the stories of Moses parting the Red Sea and of Daniel spending a night with a Den of Lions. But why? ...Read More

This Changes Everything: A Study of 1 Corinthians 15

Major events in human history send ripple effects for generations, the resurrection of Jesus on the other hand creates tidal waves that will forever shape the future. How you respond to the resurrection will determine whether you are swept away by these tidal waves or you are able to ride them into eternal joy and glory. Over the next 8 weeks we will be considering the eternity altering implications of Jesus' resurrection with Paul as we walk through 1 Corinthians 15. The resurrection of Jesus was not simply a happy ending to a tragic story, it has literally changed everything and changes life for us in the here and now of life as well. We hope you will join us for this exciting study that will kick off on April 27, 2014....Read More

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
