Shout joyfully to the Lord all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us and we are His, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. ~ Psalm 100

What: God & Country Celebration
When: Sunday, July 4, 2021 @ 10:30am
Where: RSBC Worship Center
Featuring the RSBC Choir, Orchestra and community guests, the Marietta Community God & Country Celebration is a great place for people in our community to join together in celebration of our great God and the great country He has entrusted into our care. Since our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the United States has sought to be a great country that would insure its citizens with the ‘…unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ But also, the United States has sought to be a light of hope to other nations as well! Our hope begins and ends with a great God who has and is blessing this land and its people! Though our nation is not perfect and we need the Lord now more than ever before, we are proud to call ourselves Christians and Americans!
“His Truth Is Marching On!” We will spend time celebrating all that is ‘Americana,’ but we will also spend time in prayer repenting on behalf of our nation as we have turned away from God in so many ways. We’ll ask God not to remove His Hand of Favor and to awaken a revival within the hearts of His People and our nation.
A Roswell Street Baptist Church signature event, the annual God & Country Celebration is an exciting community event for the entire family and will help to kick-off your Independence Day. Don’t miss it!!
