Wednesday Night Schedule

6:00 PM- Adult Bible study and children's/youth activities

7:00 PM- Adult Choir Rehearsal

Please make your dinner reservations here as soon as possible if you plan to eat on Wednesday nights during the month of November. After signing up for the meals you will attend, we ask that, if at all possible, you pay for your meals on the Sign-Up Genius website. Simply leave the quantity as "1" and input the total cost for the month in the "cost" box. This is a secure site, much like Realm. However, if paying online is not an option for you, please submit a cash or check payment to the church office at your convenience as money will no longer be taken in the fellowship hall on Wednesday nights.

Feel free to email Noelle with any questions or concerns you may have regarding Wednesday night meal sign-ups/payments.

SBA Christmas Gift Shop 2023

We are excited for another opportunity to support the Shelby Baptist Association's Christmas Gift Shop!

The Christmas tree will be set up in the foyer and ready with names of children and teens to be assigned on Sunday, November 5th. 

We also encourage everyone to bring cookie and popcorn tins for the parents who are bringing children to the gift shop to enjoy.

All items due back by Sunday, November 26th!

If you would like to support our congregation and ministerial staff by engaging in supportive prayer during Sunday morning worship, sign up for a time slot here.

Nine Lessons and Carols Important Dates:

-Performance and reception will be held on 12/3 beginning at 5:00 PM

-Rehearsals for the Christmas program are currently taking place on Wednesday nights from 7 PM - 7:30 PM until the performance. Regular choir members will stay until 8 PM on these rehearsal nights. You do not have to be a member of the regular choir to participate in the Lessons and Carols Service. The more the merrier!

Are you looking for a way to serve? Do you have instrumental talent that you would like to share with our congregation? Email Roberta about joining RBC's worship team! She is looking especially for those who play drums and/or guitar with a reasonable level of proficiency. We would love to hear you play!

This year RBC Kids (preschool and up) will be part of our Christmas Music Program, "Lessons and Carols" on Sunday Evening, December 3rd! Because of this, Kids Choir Practice will be starting at 5:45pm on Wednesdays instead of 6) and run to 6:10pm. If your child can't make it until 6pm, please come anyway! Since the children are singing in the program, we are asking that they be present at the Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, November 30th at 6pm. The kids should be done with their portion of dress rehearsal by 6:30pm.

2023 Bible Reading Schedule

Visit the RBC website to learn more about the 2023 Bible reading plan.

1. Acts 2: 22-24 NASB “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know—this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.” Father God, we are in awe of Your majesty. From the beginning, Your plan was that Jesus would live a sinless life, suffer the weight of our sinful world and then die and rise again. This was His plan to provide a way of salvation for man. In spite of the miracles, wonders and signs which You performed through Jesus, we misunderstood His perfection. Thank You Father that our lack of understanding and sinfulness did not disqualify us from receiving Your saving grace.

2. 2 Timothy 2: 2 NASB “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” Father God, just as Timothy was encouraged to teach others who are full of faith, would You bless those who today are being taught Your word and those who are teaching. Bless and empower those who teach Your word to do so with accuracy and zeal. Lord God, pour Your Spirit out among our children, youth and adults. Cause Your word to burn in our hearts with great intensity, passion and power.
