July 10th Worship Program
I’m glad you are able to join us this morning for worship. I pray that your time with us restores you and moves you closer to Jesus. Life has a way of pulling us away without even noticing it, have you ever wondered how that happens. A survey taken in 2011 asked people why they give in to temptations, the top response (50%) said I’m not really sure.
Today, we will discover why we do what we do and how to stop the spiritual self-sabotage.
Everyone is welcome here because no one here is perfect, but together anything can happen.
In case you weren’t aware, this is just one of three churches that make up the Rock Hall United Methodist Charge. We share one mission, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of Rock Hall and the world.
We long to see our entire community transformed by the power of God. This is why we share and show God’s love by serving our neighbors and telling the story of how God transformed our lives.
If you have any questions about our church or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
Life is much more than an accident. Wherever I go, I believe God needs me there. Wherever I am, I trust God has put me there. He has a purpose for me being there - Christ, alive in me, wants to do something through me, no matter where I am. I believe this and go in His grace and His love and His power. Amen.
If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the altar at the end of the service.

Both kingdoms are still recruiting citizens.
Disciples don’t fight for victory, but FROM victory.
This week’s YouVersion Bible Devotional:
If we choose to follow Christ, we’re engaged in spiritual warfare. It’s unseen and often undetected, but just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s nonexistent. Our spiritual enemy desires to disrupt our lives so we’ll live miserably. In this 5-day Plan, learn how to find victory by relying on God’s strength because it’s available. We just have to begin using it.
