Sermon for Sunday, September 24th
Celebrating the Family of Faith
When I think of having to go through life alone, without family or a trusted confidant, I shiver. I get chills when I consider where I might be if at the right time, I had not felt the touch of someone walking with me.
The Christian walk is a shared journey. We do not walk alone. Others walk with us. We are the household of faith. Paul indicates that, in the context of the shared life of God’s people and in the agriculture of the Spirit of God (that is, what we sow we reap), as we have opportunity, we are to do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
See you Sunday to worship God and to celebrate our unity in Christ Jesus, the awesome power of touch, and our partnership with God.
A Note from Pastor Martus Miley
Welcome to River Oaks Baptist Church! We are a caring family of people seeking to be devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Our devotion expresses itself through the disciplines of study, worship, prayer, fellowship and missions.
I would like very much for you to be a part of this loving comunity of faith. I extend to you the invitation to join with us by your profession of faith in Christ or by the transer of your church letter. If our staff can be of any assistance to you, please call on us.
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.
