September 3rd Worship Program


We are glad to have you join us for worship this week. This week we close out a message series from the book of Revelation. We have been looking at the letters from Jesus to seven churches in Asia.

These letters were written to encourage, correct, and prepare his church. They are significant to us as our churches are going through a season of significant change. But they are also relevant to us as individual disciples living out the do-over - that faith in Jesus makes possible in this life.

We want you to know, our church is a community of believers who come together to worship, pray, and learn from each other. We value the importance of family and strive to create an environment where individuals and families can grow closer to God and to each other.

At our church, we believe that everyone has the potential to impact the world. In our programs and ministries, we seek to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make a Gospel difference in our community and in the world.

So, if you are looking for a church home that seeks to make a positive impact in Rock Hall and the world, we invite you to join us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome here. We look forward to getting to know you and to growing in our faith together.

If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Gary directly, by email - or by telephone - 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

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.
