ROBC Prayer Ministry meets Wednesday & Sunday Mornings

 

   

 

 

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 will meet weekly in the chapel Wednesday mornings at 8:30 AM.  This is super casual.  Come in workout clothes or on your way to work.  And if you can only be there for a bit, no problem.  Just come and go as you can.  We are incredibly excited about strengthening the prayer ministry in the life of our church.  

We will also meet weekly in the Men's Bible Study (FH-C) at 9:30 AM, prior to Sunday 10:00 AM Worship.  We hope you will join us during one or both of these dates!

River Oaks Baptist and St. Paul Presbyterian Churches are teaming up to serve in the food pantry.  Southwest Emergency Services serves clients in crisis who live in zip codes 77031, 77036, 77072 and 77074 by providing a five day supply of food for people experiencing hunger or food insecurity.  Clients can also be referred to other agencies for long-term assistance.  The food pantry managers and dedicated volunteers come from local Christian churches in the area.  

If you are interested in helping, please contact Czarena Siebert at czarena.siebert@hpe.com.  She can give you the necessary training materials for the varous volunteer positions, or you may show up and shadow an ROBC volunteer.  All are welcome, so bring a friend!  This is also a fun and rewarding way for young people to earn community service hours.
