This Week: Sept. 26th, 2021
It is much easier than you think to be on this planet and miss Jesus Christ. As hard as it may seem, it is not difficult at all to miss the message that God, the creator of all we see, came down to us, became flesh, died for us, so that we may live forever. It should be recognized by the world as the most amazing and greatest gift we've been given. Time Magazine should make Jesus the 'Man of the Year' for every year they've published the award. But we don't. We recognize what the world values. So then it should not be surprising that amongst the noise of our daily live, amongst our weary labors for possessions, we miss the easiest thing to obtain and the most valuable. Peace. Peace that comes from knowing that there is more to our life's pursuits that ultimately end in decay. It is the peace of knowing that after this life, there is another. And that deserves to be celebrated.
This Week's Worship Service
Sept 26th, 2021 - Guest Pastor Eddie Smith explains how easy it is for us to miss Jesus, the greatest gift ever given to us. With so much noise in our daily lives, the message of Christ is but a whisper. We toil away endlessly for our possessions and value things that end the end will get us no closer to the everlasting life that is God's promise to us. We don't acknowledge our shortcomings, our failures, or sins and we don't approach the altar with humility knowing that we are flawed. Instead we measure ourselves against the canvas of what the world values. And like the rich man in today's scripture, we go away sad because we are not willing or able to release ourselves from our worldly successes.

Who We Are
Rockvale Cumberland Presbyterian Church has been a landmark in Rockvale Tennessee since 1889 at a simpler time when church was an integral part of the community. Church members were family that leaned on each other in times of struggle and celebrated together in times of joy. This spirit lives on in our diverse congregation bound together by a love for Christ and for one another. Our motto is simple, 'Whosoever will, is welcome - just as you are', in the manner as Christ said 'Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.' We hope to see you this Sunday morning.
