April 21st Worship Program

Welcome to Church!

We are glad to have you worship with us today. It's a blessing to worship, pray, and serve alongside friends and neighbors.

You probably know last week was special, it was the most significant day of the Christian calendar, Easter Sunday. But do you realize that today is actually just as important; because we celebrate the resurrection every Sunday and because God is just as worthy of praise this week as He was last. So, let’s focus on that.

After today’s worship, take a few minutes to engage friends and neighbors in conversation, or spend a few extra minutes in private prayer. We hope you find that this is not just a place to worship but a faith family eager to show you our love and support.

If you have attended church before, you know every church is unique. A few of the things we hope you will notice about us are first, the priority we give to studying the Bible, not just in worship, but in our every day relationship with God; also, we are committed to blessing others as we seek to represent Christ to our community; and finally we depend on the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us to live our daily lives. We believe these are essential to our calling to be His church here in Rock Hall.

Thank you for being a part of our church family today. My prayer is that our time together in worship would be a source of inspiration, reflection, and connection in your relationship with Jesus. If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My office telephone is 410-639-2144, or send me an email.

Richest Blessings!

Next Steps

Find practical ways you can take a first “next step” in your faith journey on our website.


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.

If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the end of the service.

Message Notes

Acts 27: The Greater Miracle

Acts 9:32-43

Cornelius’ Vision

‌Acts 10:1–8

We should always pray for more, and never be satisfied with our spiritual walk.

Peter’s Vision

Acts 10:9–16

If God is putting someone on your heart, He is probably working on their heart.

The Invitation

Acts 10:17–23

We can’t expect to walk in the Spirit until we are willing to walk where the Spirit leads.

Are we willing to wrestle with the need to turn totally outward and spending more time, energy, and money on reaching the lost than we spend on ourselves?

The Welcome

‌Acts 10:23-33

‌We need to come to God’s Word with a hunger to learn and a commitment to obey it.

The Sermon

‌Acts 10:34-48

The Good News is for Everyone

The Report

‌Acts 11:1–18

The Good News is for Me

Christians are called to do things that make us uncomfortable… so get over it. Rev. Bill Easum
