This Week: June 13th, 2021
When you look at the prisons in America they are overflowing to capacity which is a sad reflection on our society as a whole. In many political circles, the solution is to reduce sentences and remove laws that are considered overly harsh, antiquated, or target a specific ethnic group. While these are ideas that are worthy of debate, why shouldn't we turn people to a better way of living that doesn't harm others or themselves. Many of our laws are there to protect someone from harming someone else. Shouldn't it be a better solution to teach the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit to change our lives, instead of fear of incarceration to reduce the wrong we commit against one another?
This Week's Worship Service
June 13th, 2021 - When Moses came down from the Mt. Sinai after being in the presence of God for 40 days and nights, the Bible tells us that he was glowing. Over time the presence of God faded from him physically. Even so, the law was upheld as righteous and by the time Jesus came, the law had grown from those initial 10 to over 350 and a burden on the people of Israel ruthlessly enforced by the religious leaders of His day. So shouldn't we rejoice and immediately accept the new covenant and follow the one whose took on the law and in Him was perfect. Just like Moses, when we accept Him, he gives us the Holy Spirit and we now have an internal glow because we don't have to go to a specific place to commune with God, we can now speak to Him, wherever and whenever we chose. And He will listen.
2 Corinthians 3:7-11

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.
