October 15th Worship Program

Welcome to Church!

We're so glad to see each and every one of you here this weekend. As we gather for this special worship service, we want to express our gratitude for your presence. It's a joy to worship alongside you and share in this journey of faith.

This weekend, we're diving back into Acts 2:1-13 with a sermon titled "What Does This Mean: Being Filled with the Holy Spirit." It's an opportunity for us to reflect on the Holy Spirit's presence and guidance in our lives. Let's open our hearts to receive His blessings and inspiration.

To those who are visiting with us, a warm welcome! We're thrilled to have you here and invite you to join us in our celebration of faith.

After the service, stay a while, enjoy some coffee, take a minutes to engage friends and neighbors in conversation, visit with our pastor, or spend some time in prayer. Our church is not just a place of worship but a community of support and love.

Thank you for being a part of this family, and may this weekend’s service be a source of inspiration, reflection, and connection. If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My office telephone is 410-639-2144.

Richest Blessings!

Pastor Gary Priddy

Closing Worship 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.
