I’m so glad you are able to join us for worship today. My prayer is that your faith is encouraged and inspired in your time to worship with us today.
Today we continue a series of messages based on the book “The Circle Maker.” The book encourages us to pray with confidence that bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers. What is a bold prayer? How can we have confidence in praying such prayers? I pray that today as you discover answers to these and other questions, your relationship with Jesus is strengthened.
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.

This week’s YouVersion Bible Devotional:
Prayer is essential to our spiritual growth, but few of us pray as often or as fervently as we’d like. We tend to turn to God only in moments of desperation and crisis. Yet God wants us to turn to Him in every moment. The Bible is filled with the prayers of God’s people, often uttered at crossroads of decision. Believers have much to gain by studying these ancient prayers.
