RBC Family,

Much like when we resumed services in the summer of 2020, we are now making plans for a phased reopening of RBC beginning with a return to in-person worship services on Sunday, January 17th.
  • This will be the only in-person participation resuming at this time. All other programs, including Wednesday Night Activities and Sunday School will take place virtually until a tentative restart date of February 7th.
  • In the meantime, our church staff and leadership will continue to evaluate the viability and sustainability of resuming on that date or further extending the suspension of in-person discipleship programs.
  • Please continue to wear your mask at all times when in the building and especially in spaces where social distancing is not possible. If you are not feeling well, please remain home and join us online. This is not only due to COVID concerns but as a general practice to prevent the spread of the flu and other sicknesses.
  • If you think you have been exposed (CDC Criteria for Exposure) to someone who has tested positive for COVID please stay home, even if you are feeling well, until you are certain that you have not contracted COVID.
  • Please also continue to maintain social distancing as much as possible. We are making modifications in the worship service and will revert to remaining seated at all times, with the exception of the reading of Scripture. We are also readjusting the rows and roped sections to allow for greater distancing in the service.
  • If you have concerns over potential exposure, we encourage you to remain home and join us for worship virtually.

As long as these past 9 months have felt, they are but a short season in the grand scheme of what God is doing in and through our church. We have much to anticipate and celebrate together in this year! As Paul writes to the Galatians in 6:9, “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

This year we are embarking upon a churchwide Bible reading plan through reading the New Testament together in a year.
  • We will be integrating this plan into our various discipleship programs at RBC and creating new opportunities to build discipling relationships around God's word.
  • One of the ways we are doing this is via video format. Each week our staff, leadership, and other members of the church will record short (1 min or less) videos, with the focus on one of the passages from the week's reading, to encourage one another as we read the New Testament together as a faith family.
  • See this link for a pdf of the reading plan or to request a paper copy contact Chase McLain.
