This Week: Nov. 22nd, 2020

Amazing faith is giving thanks to God for thinks that he has done for us in the past and in the present, but what a wonderful show of faith to give thanks for things we expect that He will do for us in the future.   This accomplishes two important things.   First, we demonstrate our faith in God and that He is in control in our lives.  It shows that relationship with God is not something based on our temperament of the moment.  Second, it helps to remove our anxiety and worries.  By thanking God for what is to come, we know that, no matter what is to come, I am going to be thanking God.   Why worry if I acknowledge that my future is going to be blessed, no matter what happens.   This forward thinking approach requires discipline to maintain that belief that God is control.   However, we have a tool for that, too.  The Holy Spirit that lives in side us is a power source for training our lives to be all that God wants us to be.

This Week's Sermon

November 22, 2020 - In today's sermon God points to Paul's final exhortation to the Philippian church.   Echoing a bit of what we spoke about last Sunday, it is so important to be thankful for what God has done  but also for what He is about to do.   By not only giving thanks for His work in our lives and others, but to give thanks for what we expect him to do.   This type of prayer speaks volumes about our faith and teaches others that our relationship with God is not something based on our temperament of the moment.

Philippians 4:4-9

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.
