April 24th Worship Program

Good Morning!

There’s a story of a priest (who struggled with past hidden sins) who had a very devout lady in church one day tell him she regularly spoke with Jesus in prayer. The priest was doubtful. He told her, “The next time you talk to Jesus, ask him to tell you the sin that I’ve hidden since I was a boy.”

A few days later the lady returned and the priest asked, “DId you talk to Jesus? What did he say?”

“As a matter of fact, I did just this morning,”she replied, “Jesus said to tell you, he can’t remember.”

Today we explore the implications of this forgiveness for our lives and those around us.

In case you weren’t aware, this is just one of three churches that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We share one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of Rock Hall and the world.

We long to see our entire community transformed by the power of God. This is why we share and show God’s love by serving our neighbors and telling the story of how God transformed our lives.

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 and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

Practical ways you can take a “next step” in your faith journey.

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.
