Sunday, November 30 - Sunday, December 21, 2014

Advent is the season in the church where we prepare for the coming of the King. During this Holy season, we encourage you to reflect on your personal relationship with Jesus. We want to be about preparing our hearts and minds for the coming of our Savior. Join us at Roswell Presbyterian Church as we celebrate the birth of the King of Kings.

Sunday, November 30
King Jesus and John
Before Jesus comes on the scene, we encounter John... The one who blazes the trail. John seems to bring bad news... a harsh call to repent. What we'll discover is that before we can hear the good news, we need first to be willing to confess and admit the bad news of who we are.
Luke 3:1-18

Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum, preaching

Sunday, December 7
King Jesus and Herod
Herod represents the "double minded" people of life. On the one hand, he was King of the Jews. On the other hand, he was a pawn of the Romans. He said one thing to one group and something else to the other. This week, we'll talk about the fact that we have a little "Herod" in us but that Jesus has come to be king over every area of our life.
Matthew 2:1-12

Dr. Lane Alderman, preaching

King Jesus and Caesar
Caesar represents the power of the world, which presses so heavily upon us all. The world's influence in our lives is overwhelming, but Jesus calls us to be "in the world but not of it". This week, we'll talk about what it means to trust Jesus and not Caesar.
Luke 2:1-7

 Worship Communion at RPC Communion
The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is celebrated monthly at RPC, usually the first Sunday of each month.  Our "regular style" of serving means that worshippers remain seated and elders bring the elements to pass in the pews. Several times a year, we serve using the ancient method of intinction. This style involves worshippers coming forward to one of several stations where elders and clergy offer bread and the cup. Worshippers break off a piece of the bread, dip it into the cup, and partake. Elders direct people when to come forward and return to their seats. The Lord's Supper is also celebrated at our Ash Wednesday service, as well on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week.  The table at RPC is an open table... open to all who claim Jesus as Lord.

Worship Children in Worship at RPC
 
Children in Worship
RPC encourages families to worship together each week. God has asked adults and children alike to respond to the awesomeness of God through worship. We believe that the best way to teach our children to worship is by worshiping with them.
