Sermon for Sunday, May 21st

Sermon 3 of 5 in the Series - On the Journey from Easter to Pentecost

 Touched by a Vision       Acts 9:1-20

It’s one thing to pray for our enemies. It’s another to be told to go track down the enemy, go to his or her house, and pray for this persecutor – how many of us would do that?

There was one person who did. His name was Ananias. He was touched by a vision to move from fear to faith, and he tracked down the persecutor and prayed with him.

I wonder as I prepare for Sunday,
Who is my religious enemy today?
Would I respond to God’s call to go and pray?
Would it make a difference in my life?
. . . In the life of those for whom I pray?

See you Sunday. We will study, share baptism, sing together and experience community. It will be a good day with the Lord.

Sunday Worship Services

Worship is the expression of our love for God and is essential to our growth as believers.  We encourage active participation in worship by all ages. Our goal in worship is to experientially know the presence of God so that our personal lives are transformed by God's presence.  




Traditional Worship Service

10:00AM Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary

At ROBC, we provide a creative worship experience through a blending of traditional and contemporary worship styles.  Our service is designed to lead persons to worship through scripture readings, personal and corporate prayer, hymn and chorus singing, choral music and responsive readings. The service is characterized by a spirit of respect for the majesty and sovereignty of the living God and a joy at being in His presence. Led by our Pastor, Martus Miley, and our Associate Pastor for Worship, Greg Stahl, the worship service provides Biblical based messages that provide truths applied to everyday living. We want you to worship with us!


Sanctuary Assisted Listening Available

As a part of the ROBC sanctuary renovations during the summer of 2012, considerable upgrades were made throughout the audio systems.  One of those upgrades was to the assisted listening devices for our members that might need additional help hearing during the worship services.

Individual wireless receivers are available in the Welcome Center before the worship service.  Each unit has individual volume control and a single ear bud.  Our Greeters will be able to assist you with the units, or they can locate our Sound Engineer if you have a question.

If you would like to use one, please sign the unit out when you arrive and return the unit to the Welcome Center following the worship service by placing it in the metal box to be recharged for the following week.


Chinese Worship Service

11:00AM Sunday mornings in the Chapel

Our Chinese Service is a celebration of God's Word in the Chinese language. Informal in style, this service is lead by Pastor Clifford Lee and is characterized by scripture readings, hymns and prayer. The service is supplemented by a Bible study program for all ages.  Please visit our Chinese Church page for more information.
