May 22nd Worship Program

Good Morning!

Interruptions continue to be frustrating.

Back when our kids would wake us up at night with tummy aches, bad dreams, or with scary noises, all I wanted was to get back to sleep. Oh how I miss those days.

Now here I am many years later and when it’s my turn. I had all sorts of plans, but COVID entered the picture and everything changed. Yet all I could think about was what I had planned.

In today’s text from Luke 8 we find Jesus leaning into the interruptions of life rather than wishing for something else. Jesus teaches us that they are actually opportunities to love people in their time of need.

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 and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

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.

Message Notes

Luke #22: Healing of Two Daughters

A Faithful Reminder:

Faith is more than ______________________.

Faith is more than ______________________.

Faith is an action, ______________________.

Faith is the key to ______________________.

True Healing:

Luke 8:40-56, John 4:1-42, 1 John 1:9, Romans 8:1-2, 8:31-39

We can't be truly accepted unless we can be fully known.

Keeping our past in perspective:

It is ______________________.

It will be used ______________________.

It can rob us of ______________________.

It can be God’s ______________________.

This week’s YouVersion Bible Devotional:

As we look through the various spiritual gifts listed in scripture, one gift that stands out but is not really discussed is the gift of Healing. Jesus sent out His disciples with the instructions “to heal.” It is clear that Healing was a part of their ministry. But what does that mean for us today?

Join us in reading together using the YouVersion Bible App, HERE.
