This Week: May 24th, 2020

As our church family gathers to worship together in person again, we need to pause and remember why we have freedom to do so.  This simple act of worshiping together in peace is secured by the men and women who sacrificed their lives in defense of our country.   In many places in the world, Christianity is considered criminal and sometimes punishable by death.   While there are many things in our country today that seek to divide us, we should be united in the gratitude for the freedoms we have.   We thank those that have served and those that continue to do so, ready to answer the call to defend their country when needed.

This Week's Sermon

May 24th, 2020 - As we welcome our Rockvale CP Church family back to worshiping together in the sanctuary, we are reminded by Pastor Jonathan of the importance of the gift that was left for us by the risen Christ.   The same gift that bonds us all together, even when we are not in the same building.   In scripture today, we see the disciples watching Jesus ascend with a promise that while He is gone for now, he will leave behind something that will make us better witnesses for Him until he returns.   God didn't just leave us the example of Christ.  He left us the Holy Spirit, the power of Christ.  Pastor Jonathan points out that Jesus' ministry didn't begin until the Holy Spirit had descended on him.  And, just as Christ showed, the Holy Spirit can be used in amazing ways to impact our lives as well as the lives of others.

Acts 1: 1-11

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.
