This Week: Sept. 20th, 2020

While Covid19 didn't enter the mainstream media until late February, there are stories coming out now that as early as December, doctors were confounded by an ailment that presented as the flu but tests for it were either inconclusive or negative.   In our modern world, science must prove the existence of something before that something can exist and once the coronavirus was confirmed by the medical field, the belief in it was so intensive that it seemed overnight the country sheltered in place.   Even though the biologists and immunologists debated how best to treat or avoid the disease the country accepted the overwhelming consensus in the medical community that it was real and it was deadly.

The bible is filled with stories of people who believed in the promise of God, trusted in His word, and followed His will with an unshakeable faith.   This month we look at some of those biblical heroes such as Noah, Abraham and Sarah.  As we hear their stories, we have to ask ourselves if we are hearing God's word and if we are following His instructions for our lives?  Are we spending time in scripture and reading God's word and letting the Holy Spirit discern the meaning for our individual lives?   Take a moment today and spend time with God.  Both in word and in prayer.  Listen to Him and feel his presence in that moment.   And challenge yourself to live your life by the message you receive.

This Week's Sermon

Sept. 20th, 2020 - Way past the age of childbearing, God created in Sarah a child.  By believing in God's word,  Abraham and Sarah's Isaac would be the start of many nations peopled with so many that they were like the stars and could not be counted.    If Sarah's story teaches us anything, we should take from it that nothing is too difficult for the Lord.   The world demands tangible evidence before we believe things are true or possible.   But with God, there are no limits to what can be done.   Sarah looked at her age and laughed when she heard God say that she would give birth.   God shows that when He choses you for a purpose, there will be no barriers to accomplishing the will He has for your life.  We must listen and we must believe and let God work in our lives.   To the world, it may be defined as a miracle.   To believers, it is defined as unwavering faith in God and the promises He makes.

Hebrews 11:11-12, Genesis 18:9-15

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.
