August 14th Worship Program

If you are like me, faith often seems to be like a bucket with a hole near the bottom, on Sunday we are filled, only to have it leak out through the week. This weekend, as we gather, I pray your ‘faith bucket’ gets filled again… and you discover some ways to, if not plug the holes, at least to keep filling it throughout the week.

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


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.
