This Week: Sept. 13th, 2020

Psalm 127:1 says, 'Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.'   The Covid19 pandemic has affected businesses and individuals in unprecedented ways.   We have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly in our country.  We have also seen just how fragile our society has become when fear turns us against one another.   If God is not at the foundation of your life when you face unforeseen challenges, your reaction will often be negative and self serving.  But if you follow the example that Christ displayed for us, your response will be different.  "And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock." Matthew 7:25  reminds us to put God first and let the wind blow.  We may still face adversity, but we will face it with the creator of the universe on our side.

This Week's Sermon

September 13th, 2020 - God called Abraham into a relationship and tested his faith.   If we are honest with ourselves, God does not find us, we find God.   God is the one doing the calling.   It is our choice to answer the call and have faith in what He asks us to do.  Abraham had a accumulated lot of possessions and, by the standards of the day, was very successful in Haran where he was living.  But Abraham had no children.   When his father died, he was called by God to move to Canaan.  We know now the rest of the story.  Nations would be built from Abraham who, before he acted on God's call, had no children and a wife who could not bear any.   God promised him his offspring would number the stars and He kept that promise.   Are we answering God's call for our lives?  As Psalm 127:1 says, 'Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.'   In anything we do in our lives, we must ask if we are following our plan, or God's plan, one that is built on His will and the purpose He has set for your life.

Hebrews 11:8-10

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.
