June 23rd Worship Program

Welcome to Church!

We are delighted to have you with us today. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a long-time member, we are thrilled to share this time with you.

Currently, we are in the midst of a compelling sermon series on the book of Acts. Acts is the New Testament's account of the birth of the church, offering us a behind-the-scenes look at the individuals who ignited a movement that has transformed the world. This week, we will explore how the early Christians dealt with personal conflict, allowing us to derive timeless principles for handling our own challenges.

Our worship services are a vital aspect of our life as disciples of Jesus and as members of the Global Methodist Church. We believe God invites His people into three key discipleship practices:

- Worship Passionately: Worship goes beyond the songs we sing; it encompasses the way we live our lives for His glory.

- Love Extravagantly: We are called to love like Jesus, who demonstrated sacrificial love in His life and death.

- Witness Boldly: God empowers us to share what He has done and is doing in and through His people.

We believe living out these practices is essential for us as His church.

Thank you again for being a part of our family today. My prayer is that our time together in worship will inspire you to reflect deeply and connect more closely with Jesus. If you have any questions or wish to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact me directly at my office at 410-639-2144, or send me an email.

All for Him!

Pastor Gary

Next Steps

Find practical ways you can take a first “next step” in your faith journey on our website.


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.
