This Week: June 23rd, 2024

When Jesus went to the tomb of Lazarus, he delayed long enough that it would be four days before He arrived.  By that time, Lazarus was dead.   While the main reason for this, His last miracle as recorded in the Gospel of John, was to glorify God through showing God had dominion even over death, the reason for His allowing Lazarus to die could be two things.   One, in Jesus' day it was believed that the spirit lingered in the body for three days after death.   Jesus, knew the truth, but so that no one could prove otherwise, He made sure there was no doubt, that Lazarus was dead.   The second reason was to teach us that we must be patient with God when we pray for help.   Martha pleaded with Jesus to heal Lazarus.  And had He done so that would have been almost expected.  But Jesus had a greater demonstration of God's power in mind.  Sometimes, we don't get what we ask for right away but if we are patient what He provides is far greater than we could ever had imagined.

This Week's Worship Service

June 23rd, 2024 - When Jesus called Lazarus from his tomb, Jesus was showing God's dominion over death.   He was also showing that He wants nothing to bind us, to restrict us, to keep us buried in darkness.   John 11:40 "Then Jesus said, 'Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God.'"

John 11:1-43

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.
