May 8th Worship Program
Good morning & Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is a very special day to many of us. Mom, you see, began her work several months before we were born and hasn’t stopped just because we grew up and moved out. While she may not help us with homework anymore, her life was marked by countless hours caring, worrying, serving, and loving her kids. And we have always been her kids, no matter how old we got or how many of our own kids (or grandkids) we may have. Mom’s never stop - and neither should we. Never stop thanking moms for the way they love, serve, and lead their families. Never stop showing appreciation for and loving all the moms who invested their time and heart in you and those you love. Happy Mother’s Day! 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. Pastor Gary Order of Worship

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. Songs for Worship

What Does it Mean to Worship Our hearts are postured to worship. As Christ followers, we were created by God to worship Him. But we tend to offer our adoration and allegiance to people and things other than Him. Come along with us this week as we dive into worship how it helps us keep our hearts focused on what really matters. Join us in reading together using the YouVersion Bible App, HERE.
