This Week: Aug 9th, 2020

As the dog days of summer drag on, it is very easy to fall into daily ruts as we wait for the first sniff of a cool breeze hinting the arrival of Fall is just around the corner.   Sometimes it is like this when it comes to our commitment to serving God.   We seem to wait for an awakening that comes from somewhere and give us a movement to join.   Why wait?   Why can't you be the awakening of God's spirit in yourself and start a movement of your own?   Is it because we are afraid?  Or is it because we think we are not 'that' person.  We prefer not to get out of our comfort zone but are willing to participate and help if someone else lights the fire.   This month, Pastor Jonathan challenges us to be that fire.   To ignite a change in yourself, your family, your church, your community... everywhere you walk.   And don't worry or be afraid.  God has given you the spiritual gift to do what He has made you for.   You were made for His purpose.   Let's get fired up and get moving toward that destination he has planned.

This Week's Sermon

August 9th, 2020 - In this month's series, Pastor Jonathan challenges the church to embody the spiritual gifts that have been bestowed upon us to serve.  Just like in the early church, today we are equipped to do the work God has designed us for and it is our choice to walk in those gifts or choose to ignore them.   Paul admonishes Timothy to remember the gifts he has and 'kindle afresh' those things that God has given him.   For the church to wake up and be a light in the darkness of the world, we can't just sit back and wait for it to happen.  Remember, God has not given us a spirit of fear or timidity.  God has given us the tools to boldly proclaim the good news.  Let's use them!

2 Timothy 1:3-7

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.
