Florence church creates drive-in service experience

Desert Rock Church in Florence, Arizona  has created a unique drive-in service experience just south of the Florence Hospital on Franklin Road

From unemployment and safety to suddenly having to home-school children, several issues are weighing heavy on the minds of Arizonans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic

As a result, Desert Rock Church in Florence has created a unique drive-in service experience just south of the Florence Hospital on Franklin Road . “This is the first time in history that we’ve all experienced the same thing,” said Pastor Joey Bilbrey.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
