This Week: Oct. 18th, 2020
How is it that some things can stir up our emotions and make us act and while other things cause us to retreat and remain quiet. There are decisions we make in our daily lives that we often don't think long and hard about at all. But as Christians, we are called to follow Christ. Sometimes that means making difficult choices. Whether we are choosing to let go of a loved one who is unwilling to listen to wise counsel or whether we are deciding who to place in a roles of leadership in our country. Sometimes the message or direction is not clear. When you turn to God he invariably will point you to His written word. It is very difficult to live an effective life for Christ when we ignore the most important tool we are given to do so. The Bible is the living word of God. Daily read His words and pray for Him to direct your discernment and provide you wisdom to face life's difficult challenges.
This Week's Sermon
October 18th, 2020 - Are you sitting on the sidelines wanting to make a change in our world but are fearful of getting too involved. Think about the early followers of Christ. He knew those He called. They were not exactly religious men and women by the standards set forth by the leaders of their day. But when Christ called them, they came. Leaving their professions, leaving their families, and leaving the comfort of inaction. Or using the excuse that you are not good enough. You are not worthy of the calling. When God speaks, we must hear Him. It does not matter what our excuses are. God knows our strengths and weaknesses. If He calls you, He will strengthen what makes you weak and may ignore what you think is your best quality. He will use you as He determines. For your part, you must simply be ready to answer the call.

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.
