A Note From Our Children's Minister

RBC Parents,

If you haven't already, please remember to pick up an advent devotional kit for your family (for families with children ages 2+). These are available on the welcome desk downstairs and are labeled for each family.

Also, the Christmas season is quickly approaching! Preparations are already underway for the yearly Living Nativity! Living Nativity will be Sunday, December 11th at 6pm. Kids are encouraged to participate as angels or shepherds. We will have rehearsal at 4:30pm on Sunday, December 11th before feeding the kids and getting them in costume. Dinner and costumes are provided. Kids just need to decide whether they will be a shepherd or an angel. If they want to be an angel, they need to come dressed in white. We hope you and your family will join us for this tradition. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at


Christmas Cantata Important Dates:

-Performance and reception will be held on 12/4 beginning at 6:00 PM

-The performance will be immediately followed by a sweet & salty reception. Please bring either a sweet or salty snack to share!

1. Psalm 95: 1-2 NASB “O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.” Father God, this is such an exciting time to come before You. Not only have You saved us from an eternal separation from You, but You have given us abundant living here on earth. Receive our praise and thanksgiving as we acknowledge all these blessings. Use our lives and our testimonies to shout to the world around us of Your great provision.

2. Isaiah 52: 7 NASB “How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation and says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’ Father God, throughout history You have sent Your messengers to proclaim Your word through preaching, teaching and living out Your plan for mankind. We are grateful for those who brought salvation’s message to us and to the world. Thank You for Jesus and His sacrifice. Today we praise You for allowing us to share in spreading this great message with others.
