Register for VBS Now!

Join us June 10th-14th for VBS 2024, Breaker Rock Beach!! At Breaker Rock Beach, kids will learn to recognize the difference between what the world says is true and what God says is true. They’ll encounter five everyday sayings that sound right, but dangerously miss the truth found in God’s Word. Each day kids will be challenged to know that God’s truth never changes—even when it’s radically different from what some people say. They’ll discover that God does not want them to be conformed to this age, but to be transformed by the renewing of their minds so that they can discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). 

If you are interested in serving at VBS, please email me at camille@rbcstaff.com

Rummage Sale

Do you have items in your house that you have been meaning to get rid of, but never seem to find the time? Is there that one item you are just tired of staring at?.... bring it by RBC because our Rummage Sale is BACK!! Saturday, April 13th, from 8-11am we will be hosting a rummage sale in our very own parking lot. All proceeds help offset the cost of kid's camp!

We'll sell clothes, shoes, furniture, decorations, games, toys, etc. Think of us as a TJMaxx/Home Goods just with used items! Have items too heavy to carry? Email camille@rbcstaff.com and we'll get it taken care of!

Kids Choir

The Kids are singing during the service on April 14th! Below is the song and motions. Please have your child review these so they feel confident on April 14th!

Look at the fun we are having!

The younger GAs enjoyed learning about missionaries from Boston during the month of March! This month the GAs, RAs, and Mission Friends will be learning about missionaries in Uganda! Thanks to Kathy Thorsen and Angela Johnson for leading the Younger GAs each week!

In Sunday School the kids have learned about prayer and serving others! The K-2nd graders made a prayer chain out of paper, they each wrote things/people they pray for on paper and then linked them all together. How beautiful to see them invested in prayer! They also served by stuffing eggs for our Spring Festival. Thanks to Suzanne Gunn and Amanda Mullins for leading this class each week!

As we start a new year, I wanted to give everyone a little glossary of terms I commonly use and what they mean!

RBC Kids = all children birth through 5th grade

K-5th = all kids in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade (this applies until promotion Sunday of the following year)

Kids Worship = Sunday morning programing for children grades K-2, happening during the sermon and for the rest of the service. This is an engaging time for kids to learn.

Preschool Worship/Preschool Extended Care = Sunday morning programming during the service for children potty trained through pre-k/those not yet in Kindergarten. This is a time of play and Bible story reviewing/learning
