January 8th Worship Program


Thank you for joining us for worship this week.


I pray you have begun 2023 filled with hope of what God might do in and through you this year. I know I’m looking forward to being a part of what he wants to accomplish here in Rock Hall through the ministry of our church.


This week, we are continuing a study of the Gospel of Luke. We are in chapter 18, where Jesus has an encounter with a young man who asks, what seems to be a very straight forward question. But instead of answering the man the way we would expect him to, Jesus answers in a completely different way. I think we can learn something about the way Jesus responds.


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 gary@yourrockhall.church and my office telephone is 410-639-2144. Thank you again for joining us.


Thank you again for joining us.

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.


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:

New Year, New Mercies

Over the course of 15 days, Paul David Tripp will remind you of God’s grace towards you—truths that never grow old. When “behavior modification” or feel-good aphorisms aren’t enough to make you new, learn to trust in God’s goodness, rely on His grace, and live for His glory each and every day. Join online with a group of friends from church as we read and share from this daily reading.

 

Pastor's Study: Living Faithfully Starting next Sunday, 12/4, at Wesley Chapel UMC, Pastor Gary will be leading a study based on the book Living Faithfully, Human Sexuality and the United Methodist Church. Gatherings will be on 12/4, 12/18, 1/8, and 1/15 The book is available in print and digital formats. This is a required step in our disaffiliation discernment process. All are invited
