October 9th Worship Program
I’m so glad you are able to join us for worship today. My prayer is that your faith is encouraged and inspired through your time with us in worship today.
Today we conclude a series of messages based on the book “The Circle Maker.” The book encourages us to pray with confidence knowing that “bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers”. Today we close the series with the what I feel is the most important facet of our prayer life, that pray is the long game of faith. Prayer enables us to have a divine perspective, to see beyond our circumstances, beyond ourselves, beyond time, to see where God’s Kingdom meets our world.
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.
