Welcome to church!
We are so glad you chose to worship with us today. In case you weren’t aware, this is one of three churches here in our community that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We are three churches, but we operate as one ministry because we have one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of 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 the story of how God transformed our lives.
This week we continue our study of the Gospel of Luke. In today’s passage, we see Jesus perform some healings. We are used to seeing these by now. What we probably haven’t noticed yet is the routes people take toward experiencing Jesus’s healing. Today we will look at two routes people take to experience miracles. We can take either, but one way is definitely better than the other.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

Holy Communion 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.
