Welcome to our website!
Our prayer is that we are a church that God can use to bless and strengthen you by the power of Jesus, and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and freedom. Rowandale Baptist Church is here for you. We want to function as a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord, and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word of God, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you! We hope to see you soon!
Throughout the summer we will be looking at the life of Samuel. You can read all about him and his exploits in the Old Testament book of I Samuel. His is an amazing story of how he became one of the most important leaders that Israel ever had. He began his ministry as a young boy, far away from home, in the midst of a religious and political system that was corrupt and evil in almost every aspect. Yet he stayed true to God and was a strong spokesman for righteousness even when it seemed that every earthly power was against him. He was “steadfast and true in stormy times”. When lesser men might have been tempted to run and hide, or varnish the truth to curry favour, Samuel spoke clearly and forcefully to say what needed to be said, whether it was to a priest, a king or all the citizens of Israel.
There’s not much that compares to a summer thunderstorm. It’s awe-inspiring to see one build up during the day. The clouds rise; the sky grows dark; the wind starts to blow; then all of a sudden there’s a flash of lightning and a clap of thunder and the rain starts to pour down. Then, after a while, there’s a break in the darkness and you can see the sunlight shining in the distance. That’s where we are in our study of Samuel – he has endured the storms of King Saul and now he is ready to usher in a new day. He is going to anoint a new man to be king over Israel – David of Bethlehem. You can read about it in I Samuel 16:1-13. “The start of a new day” – that’s what we will be talking about in our sermon this Sunday.
