This Sunday's Sermon

Sunday, April 18, 10:00 AM
Sanctuary (In-Person); Facebook & YouTube (Online) 

"One Body, Many Parts"
I Corinthians 12:12-31

Though every congregation is a fragile group, one spiritual gift bonds all together:  our shared faith in Christ Jesus as Lord.  In addition, there are varieties of gifts, services, and work in the church, but it is the same Spirit, Lord, and God operating in us all, and we are all charged to serve the common good.

2021 ROBC Commitment Cards

Dear Members and Friends of ROBC,

The spirit of thankfulness begins with humility and gratitude for all that God has given us. It’s easy to take blessings for granted and forget that all that we have is a gift of God, but even amidst the trials and tribulations of 2020, God has blessed our church and our congregation.   In this season of thanksgiving, we are called as Christians to demonstrate our thankfulness by giving back.

As we enter the fall season and 2020 draws to a close, we can look forward to the blessings to come in 2021.  Planning for the year ahead is a vital part of the continuing health of our church, and our many committees have already accomplished most of the necessary preparations, including next year’s budget. In order to fulfill the 2021 Ministry Budget recently approved by the congregation, ROBC needs your giving pledges for the coming year.

Due to the many considerations we have made for in-person and virtual worship, the Stewardship/Finance Leadership Team is implementing an electronic pledge card drive.  A fillable form is included along with this letter that can be emailed back to the church, and a link to download the form will also be available in the weekly newsletter. If you prefer to pledge in the traditional way, printed pledge cards will be available in the Sanctuary for several Sunday worship services, and they can be mailed to you upon request.  Printed pledge cards can be returned by US Mail for those more comfortable.  However, the main focus of collection will be electronic.

Following are the options for making your 2021 Pledge:

As you give this your prayerful consideration in the coming days, we invite you to join in the biblical, counter-cultural understanding of giving out of joy and freedom, as we humbly remember that all things come from God and that we depend upon Him—not ourselves—as our supply.

We look forward to God’s blessings at ROBC through the gifts we each bring in faith and stewardship.  Each and every one of you makes a significant difference.  So, please give in faith and joy remembering those melodic words “Because I have been given much, I too must give.”

Yours in Christ,                         

Mike Poe, Chair                                                 Dr. Brian C. Brewer

ROBC In-Person Worship

Thank you to each and every person who has worked so hard to help us have a successful and safe worship experience during this time.  From ushers and musicians, to church staff and the ROB maintenance staff, to most importantly the individuals who are attending, everyone is working together so that we can offer safe worship as a congregation in person.  The first two weeks we had 44 and 47 people in attendance on campus as well as another significant group worshiping with us online.  What a joy to see everyone again!  No doubt we are still months away from being able to again worship in a more normal fashion but for now we are all thankful that for a time on Sunday morning when we can come together and worship with the restrictions we face during the pandemic.

With those words of thanks and encouragement, there are still some areas of our process we need to address as ways we can do better.  First, every person who attends worship must wear a face covering for the entire time they are in the worship service and that face covering must cover both the mouth and nose area.  Face coverings are our way of being caring and considerate of the others in worship.  We know they are uncomfortable and hot.  Please do not cause others to stay home from worship due to their concerns in this area.  Second, please help the ushers and protect those around you by only sitting in the safe areas designated.  Any place there is a green sign is a non-seating area.

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of the Lord.  Psalm 122:1
