March 19th Worship Program

Updated: Mar 19, 2023


Welcome!

Thank you for joining us for worship this the fourth week of Lent. Our prayer is that as you worship with us in this season your faith is renewed as you find yourself drawn into a deeper relationship with Jesus.

This week, we find Jesus being arrested on what is most certainly a night “when darkness reigns”. This is a night filled with betrayal. Jesus is betrayed by those who seemed close but never were. Peter betrays both Jesus and himself. These leave us with the question, how do we live in the midst of betrayal?

If you didn’t know, our church is one of three sister churches here in Rock Hall who share the same mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and the world.

Everyone is welcome here because no one here is perfect, but together anything can happen.

The same power that has transformed our lives is transforming our community as we live out our faith, sharing and showing God’s love, by serving our neighbors and telling the story of how His love 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 gary@yourrockhall.church and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

Pastor Gary

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:

So why go on this journey? Lent invites me to face that which we’d rather avoid. For 40 days we go on a journey dedicated to isolation, prayer, and fasting. May this Lent journey be a confirmation of how God is always with us, give us the courage to go to places we would rather avoid, and let us experience his provision once more.
