Where you are always welcome!


If you are visiting here for the first time, welcome!  I am so glad you are wondering about worship at RBC.  As a family of faith centered in Jesus Christ, we believe that worship of God is at the heart of ALL that we do.  I hope the following information will help you feel more comfortable and at home as you plan a visit!    Pastor Karen















9:30 am Worship

 

Every service is uniquely planned--not "traditional" or "contemporary" but according to the leading of God.  This does not mean that every service is totally different from the others, only that we work to plan each worship experience in a way that uses the spiritual gifts and talents of our community so that our worship glorifies God, is accessible to new folks who may be among us, enhances our connection to God and helps us relate to whatever the theme or focus of a particular morning may be.  A planning team meets almost every Wednesday evening before music practices to plan the services and new folks are always welcome to join us.

MORE DETAILS:

 

8:30 am  Music/drama/tech rehearsals by groups involved in worship that day.  RBC is blessed with MANY gifted musicians, vocal and instrumental.  If you enjoy sharing your gifts in music, we'll help you find a place to fit in.  If you just love to listen to and sing good  music, you'll be happy you came.  We sing contemporary music, praise songs and hymns in a meaningful blend!

 

9:30  The community gathers for worship 

Worship is held in a beautiful sanctuary with stunning stained-glass windows and other moving art.  During the summer we move to Fellowship Hall for worship due to the fact that our sanctuary is not air-conditioned.   Coffee and tea are available in the Parlor/Resource Center just off the main lobby.


RBC KIDS: Before the sermon, our children are invited to participate in a  brief children's time as a part of worship, and then  they are dismissed to RBC Kids, a Christian education opportunity for children through 5th grace, which involves scripture, crafts, games and more!  Parents may pick up children in their classrooms after worship ends.


The Lord's Table at RBC:  RBC practices "open communion." All persons who profess Jesus Christ as Lord are welcome to celebrate communion with us. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month and at additional special occasions. Children may take communion at the discretion of their parents.

 

11 am   An Hour for Growth
This is an hour when we offer many and varied spiritual formation and service opportunities for experiencing the abundant grace of God as we encourage one another to grow in faithfulness and love.  Currently there are two adult education offerings:
 Bible Study— Pastor’s Study; Adult Selectives— Choir Room.  The parlor is also available for conversation and coffee.

 

Occasionally after 9:30 Worship there will be a  "Hands-On-Worship"  Activity
Interested folks gather after worship in the sanctuary ends to go do missional projects in the building or out in the community.  This includes people of all ages; parents may leave the smallest children in childcare while they serve for an hour in the world. 


CHILDCARE IS OFFERED THROUGHOUT THE MORNING ACTIVITIES, FROM 8:30 AM TO 12:00 NOON.  A PAGING SYSTEM IS IN USE FOR PARENTS.
