So glad you joined us today for worship. Today is Pentecost Sunday. Today is the day where we celebrate the presence of God’s power in our lives. God’s Spirit is here with us, in us - as followers of Jesus, this is what makes the life of a faithful disciple possible… What a day to celebrate!!!
In case you weren’t aware, this is just one of three churches that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We share one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of Rock Hall and the world.
We long to see our entire community transformed by the power of God. This is why we share and show God’s love by serving our neighbors and telling the story of how God transformed 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

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.

Luke #24: It’s Exam Time Luke 9:18-36 It’s not a trick Question: Who do you say Jesus is? Luke 9:18-20, Luke 4:5-8 ● Everybody wants a Savior, ____________________________. ● We focus more on this world ______________________. ● We focus more on ourselves ______________________. ● We prefer to be blessed ______________________. Next question: What does “taking up our cross” mean? Luke 9:21-27, Galatians 2:20, Romans 6:1-14, James 4:13-17, ● It’s simple but ____________________________________. ● It's one decision, ______________________________. ● It’s accepting our _____________________________. The not so simple answer: Luke 9:28-36, 2 Peter 1:12-18, John 3:16-18, 14:6-7 Jesus doesn’t want to be a part of your life… but all of your life. This week’s YouVersion Bible Devotional: God Hunger
We all have a spiritual appetite as part of our makeup as human beings. In fact, this yearning for spiritual fulfillment is a constant in our daily life. The question is, where is our hunger being directed? If we are not hungry for the presence and purposes of God, then you can be sure we are hungry for something else.
GOD HUNGER is a series of meditations designed to awaken our passion for God’s presence. It is an invitation to allow ourselves to be transformed into more passionate, radical followers of Jesus, by His grace.
Join us in reading together using the YouVersion Bible App, HERE.
