July 30th Worship Program
We are glad to have you join us for worship. Today is all about celebration. We celebrate Jesus, we gather to celebrate our church family here in Rock Hall, and we gather to celebrate all God has done in and through the lives of our recent graduates.
In our current message series DO-OVER, we are looking back to learn from Jesus’s encouragement to the churches of Revelation in order to discover the keys to making the most of the second chance God has given us through a new life as part of His Church.
Our church is a true family of believers who come together to worship, pray, and learn from God and each other. We value being connected to other believers and strive to create an environment where individuals and families can grow closer together.
At our church, we believe that everyone has the potential to impact the world. In our programs and ministries, we seek to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make a Gospel difference in our community and in the world.
So, if you are looking for a church home that seeks to make a positive impact in Rock Hall and the world, we invite you to join us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome here. We look forward to getting to know you and to growing in our faith together.
If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Gary directly, by email - firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone - 410-639-2144.
Thank you again for joining us.

Find practical ways you can take a first “next step” in your faith journey on our website. Just go to nextsteps.yourrhc.com.
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.
If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the end of the service.

Do-Over: From Compromise to Confidence
Revelation 2:18–29 (NIV)
18 “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.
20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.
24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, 25 except to hold on to what you have until I come.’
26 To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations—27 that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’ —just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give that one the morning star. 29 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
