March 27th Worship Program
Welcome to church!
We are so glad you chose to worship with us today. In case you weren’t aware, this is one of three churches here in our community that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We are three churches, but we operate as one ministry because we have one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
We are pursuing a vision to see our entire community transformed by the power of God. We do this by sharing and showing God’s love as we serve our neighbors and tell the story of how God transformed our lives.
This week we continue our study of the Gospel of Luke. In today’s passage, we find Jesus in the middle of his most famous sermon, teaching a most powerful lesson focused on helping his followers improve all their relationships.
If you have any questions about our church or want to discuss your relationships or faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My email is email@example.com and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.
Order of Worship
Welcome Songs for Worship Prayers of Adoration and Confession
Prayer’s of the People Message
Pastor Gary Priddy Luke #15: Luke 6:27-49
Next Steps Practical ways you can take a “next step” in your faith journey.
Prayer of Thanksgiving 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. 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.
