This Week: Sept. 3rd, 2019
"Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,"Romans 1:24
What does it mean that God gave them up? Who are "them"? How can we understand who "them" is in the context of the book of Romans? In this weeks Sermon Blog, Pastor Jonathan explains the meaning of 'them' in this scripture.
Richard 'Mark' Stegall
It is with sad hearts that we remember Richard "Mark" Stegall" who passed away on August 29, 2019, as he finished his journey with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was at home surrounded by more love than can be measured. Mark was a longtime resident of Rockvale and retiree from Atmos Energy. Mark loved racing at Nashville Fairgrounds and Duck River Speedway and especially enjoyed spending time in the countryside of his community that he loved so much. Those who knew Mark the best, knew him as a man who had an unshakeable faith in God, his family, God's creation, and his country. He will be missed. Mark is survived by his "Sweetie" wife Suping Steagall; his daddy Dick Steagall and "mom" Debbie Steagall; sister Tina Gail; brothers Tom, Earl (Angie), and Ryan (Christy); father and mother-in-law Yonghe Li and Buzhen Ma; step grandmother Anna Jean Folks; stepson Corey McKenzie; stepdaughter Xiaojie "Rita" Ma; nephews and nieces Hannah, Dawson, Taylore, Olivia, Jack, Caden, Kylan and Sutton. There are countless extended family and friends as well. The family would like to send out a special thank you to the Vanderbilt ALS Champions: Dr. Christopher Lee, Dr. Melissa Warren, Penny Powers PT and clinical coordinator Johanna Fowler; and Amedisys hospice team especially Jennifer Ferguson, Amanda Davis, Sarita Harris, Louise Spivey, Chandra Sanders, Rosalyn and Nancy; and Atmos Energy especially Mary Tabers and Teresa Travis and the dozens upon dozens of coworkers who rebuilt his home for disability access.
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.
