Welcome to church!
We are so glad you chose to worship with us today. In case you weren’t aware, we are just one of three churches here in our community that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We are three unique churches, but we operate as one ministry because we have one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of Rock Hall and the world.
We are pursuing a vision to see our entire community transformed by the power of God. We do this by sharing and showing God’s love as we serve our neighbors and tell others the story of how God transformed our lives.
Today is Palm Sunday, and we are continuing a study of the Gospel of Luke. In today’s passage we find John the Baptist questioning Jesus. A fitting passage for Palm Sunday and for our lives as we wrestle with life not panning out as we expect it to.
If you have any questions about our church or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My email is email@example.com and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

Prayer of Thanksgiving Benediction
Life is much more than an accident. Wherever I go, I believe God needs me there. Wherever I am, I trust God has put me there. He has a purpose for me being there - Christ, alive in me, wants to do something through me, no matter where I am. I believe this and go in His grace and His love and His power. Amen.
If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the altar at the end of the service.
