Where you are always welcome!
Here is to the start of a new school year. Many of our youth probably look at this as more of a time of new beginnings than our actual New Year’s holiday. A chance to learn something new, a chance to make new friends and meet new people, a fresh slate to walk into school with to leave an impression you had hoped to leave last year. But with all of these new opportunities, will come new challenges. These new challenges we face this year may cause us to feel lost, or defeated, maybe even filled with doubt and shame. So here is to the start to a new RBC youth school year, where my goal for this time is to be a community in Christ. A place for our youth to be supported through these challenges, accepted for who they are, challenged to take steps towards Jesus, cared for in their time of need, and given the opportunity to care for others who are hurting.
Every year has been different from the last here at RBC, and thank God for that. We have seen God work in so many different ways year after year that honestly I can’t keep track. So needless to say I am very excited for this new school year to start and to interact with the new RBC Youth. Hopefully filled with some new faces, and guided by our seasoned RBC youth members.
Just as a reminder to all, we welcome any 6th through 12th grade students to join us any Sunday night from 6pm-8:30pm in the high school room. We have a lot of fun things planned for this year that our youth are not going to want to miss.
And as we start our new year, one thing I can ask of all of you is prayer. Keep our Youth Ministry in your prayers as our team navigates through this year in making big and small decisions. That we can lead this group in a way that is honoring to God and directed towards His kingdom here on Earth.

Our gatherings for middle and high school aged youth are designed to be fun for believers and a great place to invite friends who don't normally go to church. Everyone can find a place to belong at RBC--whether in youth group, Breakfast Club, or attending worship services with the larger RBC community, where youth are welcome members of worship teams, the choir, etc. as they feel comfortable and called. Friends are always welcome!
