May 28th Worship Program


Welcome!!

I’m glad to have you join us. We believe everyone is welcome in our church - because no one is perfect - and together, by God’s grace, anything is possible. Today we are focusing on the “Together” part of “Together, anything is possible” as we consider the Doctrine of the Church.

Our church is a community of believers who come together to worship, pray, and learn from each other. We value the importance of family and strive to create an environment where individuals and families can grow closer to God and to each other.

At our church, we believe that everyone has the potential to impact the world. In our programs and ministries, we seek to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make a difference in our communities and in the world.

So, if you are looking for a church home that seeks to make a positive impact in Rock Hall and the world, we invite you to join us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome here. We look forward to getting to know you and to growing in our faith together.

If you have any questions 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.

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.

Message Notes

Firm Foundations: The Church

Article V – The Church

We believe the Christian Church is the community of all true believers under the Lordship of Christ. We believe it is one, holy, apostolic and catholic. It is the redemptive fellowship in which the Word of God is preached by men divinely called, and the sacraments are duly administered according to Christ’s own appointment. Under the discipline of the Holy Spirit the Church exists for the maintenance of worship, the edification of believers and the redemption of the world.


Ephesians 5:25-32

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.


Luke 10:27

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

 

This week’s YouVersion Bible Reading Plan:

The Church is more than a building—it’s people following Jesus together. So we don’t go to church, we are the Church and we exist for the world. Over the next five days, we’ll discover what it means to be the Church in our communities all over the world.
