Pastor Adam Lewis

This Week's Sermon Title: "Rest Is Worship"

Scripture:  Genesis 2:1-3, Mark 1:21-35, Hebrews 4:1-9, 1 Kings 19:4-9

Lord, make my heart sit still.  What a great prayer! Today, we adventure into the Biblical definition of rest and how we can reconnect with God in our worship.  God commands that we take a break! Time to assess ourselves and see if we are overdue for a time of rest. Let's learn to rest, not quit! God rested - so should we.  

Small Group Questions
1.  Start your time out with a prayer for rest to be a part of your regular week.  Read out loud Hebrews 4:1-9 guide your prayer time.

2.  Start in Mark 1:21-35.  Write down all the activities that Jesus did in that one particular day and how exhausting his day would have been.  What was his response in Mark 1:35?

3.  Do you ever feel guilty for resting?  Why or why not?

4.  What is your weekly rhythm of rest and do you find the time each day to spend a few moments resting, re-creating, and worshiping God?

5. A time of rest will help us not to quit, but will give us the stamina to keep going.  Pray for a time of rest, for resilience within that rest, and for God's strength to continue in your life.  



PLAY A ROLE - Opportunities to serve 


We’re meant to do life together—to be part of a community where we can grow into who God created us to be.  As you participate in an event or serve in one of our ministries, you’ll naturally meet new people and build relationships. No matter what your interests, skills, or availability, we have a place for you.

Below are our various Serve Teams and a list of their current needs. If you feel led to serve on one of these teams, please reach out to the provided contact. We would love to serve alongside you.

Our Welcome Team is responsible for creating a friendly, welcoming atmosphere to all those entering and Church on the Hill and sending them off with a blessing as they exit.  They are often the first thing people see as they enter our building and are the "first impression" of our church community. They assist by providing information about events, getting newcomers plugged into our church, connecting guests with ministries and guiding guests throughout the facility.

Welcome Center Volunteers

We are all about helping people come to know God either for the first time or in a deeper way. Everything we do here at COTH is to help people along this journey.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be set free from various holds on our life and be transformed into people who experience purity of heart.

God has a purpose for His people on this earth and creates each of us uniquely to live that out. We were made on purpose, with a purpose.

Being a disciple of Jesus means that we are actively living out the Father's will here on earth. Each of us has a role to play in ushering in God's kingdom here on earth.
