Sunday Schedule Information (Updated 1.25.21)
Just this week, Cobb County Schools have resumed in-person learning as new COVID-19 cases are decreasing across the state of Georgia and specifically in Cobb County. We praise the Lord for this shift downward and we are praying this trend continues in the days ahead! NextGen (preschool, children, student) weekday programming will begin in-person activities this week. Please note the following Sunday Schedule that will resume this Sunday, January 31:
- 9:00am Hispanic Service – Choir Room

As we navigate the days ahead, please know that we are praying for each of you and we covet your prayers for us. Ultimately, our hope is in the Lord and we know that we will eventually arrive on the other side of this pandemic. Until that day, let’s remain faithful to stay connected and to share the Gospel with a world that desperately needs a Savior!
Serving HIM with You!

CDC Protocols & Recommendations
Our RSBC Advisory Council and Leadership Team are keeping a watchful eye on the new COVID-19 cases across Georgia and more specifically in Cobb County. We are monitoring the Center for Disease Control, the Wellstar Health System, Cobb & Douglas Public Health, Cobb County School District, the Mayo Clinic and the Journal for the American Medical Association for trending information. Please refer to the reference section below for further information.
Our Advisory Council and Leadership Team are strongly recommending that every person wear a mask indoors during church programming. Wearing a mask deters the transmission of the virus. We know there are many who would prefer not to wear a mask. However, you may unintentionally carry a contagion that may make another person sick, especially those who fall into the vulnerable/high risk population with significant health issues. You might be protecting others by wearing a mask, so please do. One of the best ways we can love one another is to keep one another safe and to prefer others above ourselves. Further information regarding the efficacy of masks is available in the reference section below.
Our Advisory Council and Leadership Team are also strongly recommending that all on-campus participants maintain physical distancing as measured out and noted within the Worship Center and Life Group spaces. Though distancing is not preferable, it helps to contain contagions within specific areas and curbs an outbreak from occurring.
It is our hope that these safety measures are helpful in keeping one another safe from spreading the COVID-19 virus further. We are praying with each of you that the virus will be under control soon and we will be able to resume a sense of normalcy!
