Labor Day Retreat

Every year, we conduct our annual church retreat at Trinity Pines Conference Center during the Labor Day weekend. We normally arrive on Saturday and stay until Monday afternoon. 

This is an opportunity for us to spend time in fellowship as brothers and sisters in Christ while enjoying God's creation. 

During this time, we conduct regular Bible study sessions for all ages, as well as engage in the activities available at the camp such as hiking, swimming, basketball, beach volleyball, Ga-Ga ball, paddle boating, and so much more! 

We also have a special gathering on Sunday morning call "Chapel in the Woods" where we come together to worship God while embraced by the natural surroundings He created. 

Please feel free to contact us by phone, email, or message us on our Facebook page for more information on how to sign up and what to expect during retreat activities. 

We also provide a scholarship program for youth and children to be able to attend retreat through donations from sponsors within our community.

ROCK Ministry - River Oaks Children's Keepers

Are we our children’s keepers?  The answer is a definite “YES!”

ROCK is a global ministry project reaching out to children.  They may be abused, abandoned, hungry, or homeless.  It serves one and serves one hundred.  In caring for the one, that one can grow up to care for 100.

ROCK is a ministry that reaches out through the use of the God given talents of all individuals.  Each person has a special gift or ability.  We are not all the same.  But we can come together with the same heart, the same purpose, the same mission.

ROCK is a vision that starts with the heart of caring locally as a foundation.  With a strong foundation, ROCK grows arms and legs on that caring heart by which to reach out to the world.

      

In Remembrance of Pastor Paul

Pastor Paul's earthly path came to an end on July 11, 2021 as he passed on to Eternity while doing his service to God by preparing for Sunday Worship Service. 
He taught us many things during his time with our church both in words and song.  We will truly miss him in our church especially for his Teo Chew ministry and with the online service in the Thai language.  He was a great example of faithfulness in the midst of adversity.  We are comforted to know that he now lives in the light of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and we can see him again as we continue in service to our awesome God who so loves us that He sent His Son to save us from our sins that we may have life everlasting with Him. 
Pray for those who will follow his lead.

Thank you for understanding and we hope that everyone continues to stay safe. 

Diaspora Ministry and Mentoring of Future Leaders in the Paul-Timothy Ministry

In conjunction with the Southern Baptist Convention, the International Mission Board, and the Southern Baptist Texas Convention, each church is asked to consider the Diaspora Ministry of the church with the Church Planting strategies and development of leadership using the Timothy-Paul mentorship model.   This ministry will meet the need of reaching out into the community to those who are in need of connection with others in a significant way that involves their daily lives and needs both spiritually and relationally.  Prayerful consideration is needed for each church to plan the subsequent needs of the church for outreach, ministry, and discipleship in addition to current ministry of the church.  Each church would need to:

  1. Pray and know the ministry of the Church in reaching out to those who need to know the love and forgiveness that Jesus brings.
  2. Seek out those that would be willing to heed the call of Christ into the ministry of the Church as the body of Christ.
  3. Begin a mentorship ministry (Timothy-Paul) to develop Christ minded leaders in the Church and in the ministry of Christ.
  4. Give support of the mentorship ministry as it progresses from one being mentored to mentoring others.

We hope and pray that each church will see the importance both in the Diaspora Ministry as well as the ministry of the local church and the Church as a whole.  Church Planting ministry includes the development of leaders who are willing and Spirit-abled to be led and then to lead the Body of Christ until Jesus comes back in all of His Glory. 

To our congregation at ROBC Chinese Mission: 

In response to this, I am asking each family represented in our congregation to send a representative that would meet the criteria for considering this ministry. God has blessed all to the families in this church to be where you are today.  It is now time that we respond to that blessing in thanksgiving and service.   We will have an information session and then they will be asked to respond at some point in the future after they have had plenty of time to think and pray about their involvement in this ministry.  Minimally, they would need to be 18 years old or identify a very strong call to the ministry of Christ and the Church.  This is not a motion for the church to vote on, rather it is an individual call to ministry and an ordination of leadership by Ministers of the Gospel.

This first session will be on Father’s Day during lunch and it will be about 15 minutes with opportunity to stay longer to ask questions.

A Note from Our Pastor: COVID-19

We reopened the doors of the Chapel on October 4, 2020 for our in-person services again.  We have tried to prepare all of the items that we need for precautions including hand sanitizer, thermometer, masks, etc.  We have rearranged the chairs to give proper spacing. 

Please read all of the guidelines on the ROBC web page: https://www.robc.org/covid19 

ROBCCM Safety Guidelines - Updated 10/1/20 

Currently, as per River Oaks Baptist Church policy, we are not encouraging those 60 years old or older to come or if you are not yet comfortable being around others.  For this, we are still having our online services on YouTube in English, Teo Chew, and Thai.  We are still looking for someone willing to translate our services in Mandarin and Cantonese.  We have not been permitted to start our lunches again, but some of you might go out together and enjoy fellowship at a local restaurant. 

Please look out for updates because there might be changes to this depending on the rules of the campus, city, county, or state. 

May God continue to find you faithful to Him as we continue to journey together in His Grace, Mercy, and Love in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Pastor Clifford Lee
