August 27th Worship Program


We are glad to have you join us for worship this week. We are continuing a message series from the book of Revelation. We are looking at the letters that Jesus gave to seven churches. Letters to encouragement and correction.

These letters are significant to us at this time as our churches are going through a season of change. But they are significant to us as individuals as God’s grace works in us to live out the new life - our personal do-over - that faith in Jesus makes a reality.

Our church is a true family of believers who come together to worship, pray, and learn from God and each other. We value being connected to other believers and strive to create an environment where individuals and families can grow closer together.

At our church, we believe that everyone has the potential to impact the world. In our programs and ministries, we seek to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make a Gospel difference in our community and in the world.

So, if you are looking for a church home that seeks to make a positive impact in Rock Hall and the world, we invite you to join us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome here. We look forward to getting to know you and to growing in our faith together.

If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Gary directly, by email - or by telephone - 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

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.

This week’s YouVersion Bible Reading Plan:

There is a truth that changes everything: Jesus is King. It’s the destiny of the universe for all to see His kingship. But how might we see and experience Jesus as King right now when so much in our world doesn’t seem to line up with His reign? This 5-day bible plan is a journey through the Scriptures to encounter the kingship of Jesus Christ.
