Next Sunday's Sermon
"The Audacity of God: Jesus in a Postmodern World"
Isaiah 43:8-13; Jon 14:5-7
Our world now struggles with universal claims. Yet, we read in Isaiah that God is the only savior. And Christians have made the claim that Jesus makes, that he is THE way, THE truth, and THE life. We will hold up this exclusive and historic understanding of Christianity to our post-modern world, where everything is relative, and truth is how we as individuals define it. While the world sees this as narrow-mindedness, we confess that this God is the one who saves, not we ourselves. Thus, “truth” is not ‘to each his own’ but the Truth in Christ who redeems us. Narrow is the way, indeed!

ROBC Prayer Ministry
If you sense the Holy Spirit leading you to broaden your prayer life, we hope you will become a part of the ROBC Prayer Ministry. The Living God is calling His people, called by His name, to intercede for the needs of His world. The group will be praying for our church, its members, and our contemporary "Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and even to the remotest part of the Earth." Acts 1:8
We meet weekly in the Chapel on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 AM. This is super casual. Come in workout clothes or on your way to work. If you can only be there for a bit, no problem. Just come and go as you can.
We also meet weekly in the Men's Bible Study (Fellowship Hall C) at 9:30 AM, prior to Sunday 10:00 AM Worship.
We are incredibly excited about strengthening the prayer ministry in the life of our church. We hope you will join us during one or both of these dates!
