Upcoming Events at Roswell Street
What: “Life Is Meaning-Full” Sermon Series
When: Sundays @ 10:30am (April 11 – May 2)
Where: Roswell Street Baptist Church
Sermon Series Description: The aching emptiness of life and the longing search for meaning and significance in the human heart is greater now than ever before. The search for things certain and sure seems to give way to hopelessness. We are living in a high-tech, low-touch world; we are more connected than ever virtually but struggle to engage in meaningful relationships vitally. The prolonged pandemic has led many to a deep hole of aloneness. Social distancing has produced social isolation. How can you decrease ‘less’ from your everyday meaning and increase ‘full’? This is a search that ancient King Solomon was pursing throughout his life. The book of Ecclesiastes records his search for significance and his discovery that speaks a timeless truth down through the ages. Journey with the Roswell Street family as we seek to place “full” in our everyday “Meaning.”

What: “Pray & Go” Event
When: Sunday, April 25 @ 11:30am-2:00pm
Where: Lunch at RSBC in the Gym (11:30-12:30pm); “Pray & Go” event within communities around the Church (12:30-2:00pm)
Two distinct mandates are present in scripture. Pray & Go. I Thessalonians 5:16 says, “Pray without ceasing.” Mark 11:24 says, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Jesus said, “Go into all the world” in Matthew 28:19. In John 20:21, Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, now I am sending you.” With these scriptures in mind, we are committing to Go into the neighborhoods around our church to Pray over the homes in the community. No, we are not knocking on doors. Rather, our goal is simply to pray for the people in each home by pausing to pray as we walk through our assigned communities. I can hear you saying…”I can do that!” Yes, you can! Come join us for a delicious lunch at 11:30am. After lunch, Joe & Taga will place us into teams of 2-3 before receiving our ‘prayer walking location assignments.’ The goal?! Our goal is to pray over 2,000 homes! How will we meet that goal? We will need 100 people who will form 50 teams that will pray for 40 homes. 50 teams X 40 homes each = 2,000 homes!
It’s that simple! So that we can reserve your lunch, we need to know that you are coming. Please register for lunch at the following link.

What: The Lord's Supper
When: Sunday, May 2, 2021 @ 10:30-11:30am
Where: The Worship Center
Event Description: The Lord's Supper is served every other month at Roswell Street Baptist Church. It is a reminder of the great sacrifice Jesus Christ paid by dying on a cross to pay the penalty for the sin of mankind. Jesus himself instructed His followers, "Do this in remembrance of me. In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. (I Corinthians 11:25-26)
What: "My Story" Luncheon

Event Description: High school students are heading to beautiful Lee University situated in the Appalachian foothills of Tennessee for Student Life Rec Camp. Students will join with hundreds of believers in worship led by Camp Pastor Adam Robinson and SL/Worship. Rec time will be all about crazy fun competitions that connect students with one another plus free time to enjoy Lee’s campus amenities. The focus this year is TAKE HEART. Fear does not have to be the defining characteristic of our lives. Jesus has erased the need for all fear and blocks out the sometimes overwhelming voice of the enemy. Bonus Add-on Adventure – White Water Rafting on the Ocoee, Friday, June 18th. For an additional $40, students can opt to raft the raging rapids of the Ocoee River. With “hang onto your helmet” sections of surging whitewater, the legendary Ocoee River will give you a rowdy, romping, rollicking ride.
