11 AM Worship
Our 11:00 a.m. service is a contemporary, modern worship. Dave Roberts - our Modern Worship Leader, the band and candle tables are part of this lively worship. It is very relaxed with a positive, upbeat feel. Although both the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services have the same sermon, each offers a distinct and different type of music (more on the music of our 11:00 service, below).
Children are definitely welcome with age appropriate Sunday School classes offered. Youth remain in worship during this service and have the opportunity for Bible Study during the 9:30 a.m. service. A nursery is also available.
Once a month we have our Communion service. All are welcome to come forward to share in this very special meal in which we actively are reminded how much God loves us.
More information on our services can be found on our First Time Visitors page.
More About the Music -The SOTH - RSM Band
Our Band is a worship band, not a "praise band". Although many come to worship to praise God in song, others come to look, to question, and even to express anger and confusion with this God of Love. Praise is an important expression towards God, but worship encompasses all of the emotions that we bring before God.
Most of our music is participatory. Worship is not a spectator sport!! Our main purpose is to lead the congregation in singing, not just to perform some cool songs. It is our desire that the music we sing together connects the worshiping community to God in a unique way.
Select a song below to listen to our contemporary band:
- Worship 9:30 AM: Relaxed Traditional – Traditional and new hymns with our Chancel Choir.
- Worship 11 AM: Contemporary / Modern Worship – Band, Candles, Families.
- Sunday school for children at each hour. Loving nursery care, too.
- Address: We are located at 30605 Avenida de Las Flores, Rancho Santa Margarita.
This Week at RSM Campus
On Sunday we continue our series on "Making All Things New." Last week we talked about the "What" of the Gospel - the very nature of the Gospel and how God wants to transform the world through it. This week we are going to talk about the "Who" of the Gospel. We are continuing to move through Colossians and as it progresses Paul begins to pray for the people of Colasse and does so because he knows that they will need great trust and knowledge of Who the gospel is about, and Who will cause life transformation. So this week we will gather together to talk about Who Jesus is when it comes to transformation newness. What we discover is that Jesus makes things new everyday if we simply allow those tiny transformations to lead to big ones..... See you Sunday as we talk about the image of the invisible!
