October 30th Worship Program
Updated: Oct 30, 2022
I’m so glad you are able to join us for worship today. My prayer is that your time with us in worship today is just what your soul is thirsting for; that you leave here today renewed and inspired.
Today we will be studying a familiar text from the Gospel of Luke, Jesus’s teaching on the connection between our ability to forgive and our faith. It will be difficult, but it will be good. As most transformational experiences are, it’s the hard things that often lead to our greatest joys. I pray you find this joy in a life of forgiveness.
If you didn’t know, this church is one of three in our community that share one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of Rock Hall and the world. Our gathering for worship is a testimony to our community of the power of Jesus to save, transform, and redeem.
Everyone is welcome here because no one here is perfect, but together anything can happen.
The same power that has transformed our lives is transforming our community as we live out our faith, sharing and showing God’s love, by serving our neighbors and telling the story of how His love 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.

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.
