Church News for Thursday, Sept. 27By Emily Beckett Published 12:05am Saturday, September 29, 2012
Rocky Mount United Methodist Church
Week of Sept. 16: Bro. Phil started us off by reminding us of the song by Toby Keith “I Wanna Talk About Me.” After reviewing the words of the song and the reality of the truth of the song, he went back to a previous sermon on narcissism and how the world seems to be more about ourselves than the world around us; it should be more about Jesus. The poem “Footprints in the Sand” is another example of how it’s not always about you. You will recall that the poem ends with letting you know that it was Jesus that was carrying you. Jesus is still there carrying you. The only thing between you and Jesus is you. We don’t always find ourselves in the race that we signed up for but it is the race we find ourselves in, and sometimes, that is a real test for us. You didn’t train for it, and you didn’t sign up for it, but now it’s your race, and it’s up to you to do your best.
Rocky Mount is now broadcasting the Sunday morning message at 7:30 a.m. on radio station WKLF-FM 95.5. Join us then and meet our new preacher, Brother Phil Guin.
Week of Sept. 23: Rocky Mount invites you to tune in to WKLF-FM 95.5 on Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. to hear a broadcast of the previous Sunday’s morning worship message by our new preacher, Bro. Phil Guin.
Bro. Phil has also started an informal evening worship study of the various parables of the Bible. We meet from 5 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Sundays and would love to have you join us. Last Sunday, we started the series “The Prodigal Son” or “The Parable of the Lost Son” from Luke 15:11-32. Some agreed that perhaps it should have a different title, such as “The Parable of the Loving Father.”
Bro. Phil is also leading our youth in Sunday School. Can you tell we are really putting our new minister to work? We are so blessed to have the Guin family as a part of our church family.

We will be having breakfast at 9 a.m. and regular morning service at 9:30 a.m. We invite you back at 4 p.m. to hang out and enjoy the rest of your day with us. Behind our church building, in the future arena site, pony rides will be provided, or you may bring your own horses to ride. We will also have a few activities set up, including a horseshoe toss. At dark, we will light the campfire and roast hotdogs and marshmallows. Throughout the evening, live music will be provided by various artists. All refreshments are free of charge, so bring your guitars, your family or just yourself, and come hang out with us.
