This Week: Jan. 23rd, 2022

Some of the harshest criticism that is leveled at Christians does not come from non-believers, but from fellow Christians.   It is a hard truth that we often turn from scriptural instruction to denominational guidelines.   It is sad to witness a person who is alive in the Holy Spirit and wishing to serve God in a passionate way, be marginalized by the church leadership or peers.   Everyone has been given a gift of the Spirit and it is important that we recognize God at work in a person whether or not it fits the agenda of the church at that time.  We can't know God's plan for everyone and, at best, find it difficult to discern God's plan for ourselves.   How then, can we as a true believers in Faith, be so bold to tell someone else that their passion is misplaced.   It is a greater use of our talents to encourage others in growing in their Faith through proper instruction that comes from scripture and acknowledge that God uses each of us differently to fulfill His purpose.

This Week's Worship Service

January 23, 2022 - Life is hard and for Christians sometimes the difficulties of life turn our focus away from God and to worldly habits.   It is not wrong, in fact it is incumbent on other Christians, to identify this behavior in their fellow believers and help them return to their faithful path and away from things destructive to their God-ordained purpose God.  But we must do so in a loving manner that does not tamp down the fire of the Holy Spirit that burns in their hearts.

1 Thessalonians 5:14-24

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.
