What can I expect if I visit RBC on a Sunday?

On Sundays, we meet at 10:00 AM for the Lord's Supper to worship our Lord Jesus Christ and to obey His command to remember Him in the breaking of the bread (click this link to see a description of our meetings). Many people choose to arrive by 9:50 to find their seats and spend a few minutes in quite meditation before the meeting begins. The meeting is relatively quiet and solemn, as we reflect on who Jesus is and what He has done for us. However, it is also a joyful occasion as we sing hymns of worship and praise to our Lord. For this service, we use "Hymns of Worship and Remembrance" published by Truth and Praise, Inc. For a partial list of hymns, click here. Various brothers may stand and pray or give testimony from the Word of God. Usually toward the end of the meeting (e.g., around 10:50) a brother will give thanks for the bread, pass it, then give thanks for the cup, and pass it, as all believers currently in fellowship at RBC or another church are invited to partake and silently remember the Lord Jesus Christ. While all are welcome to join us for this meeting, unbelievers, those not in fellowship, or those under discipline in their local churches are asked to observe only.

At 11:00 AM, we begin a period of announcements, testimony, and pray requests. During announcements, the leader will highlight upcoming meetings and events, read missionary letters, share prayer requests, etc. A brother will also be asked to stand and open the meeting in prayer sometime during the singing/announcement period.

At approximately 11:15, the children are dismissed for Sunday school and our speaker is invited to take the platform for our Family Bible Hour service. Usually, the speaker is a brother from RBC, but we also regularly invite visiting speakers to come and share with us. Depending on the speaker's style and message, he may employ a variety of formats including systematic, expository teaching; topical studies; videos; object lessons; and more. You can listen to some sermons recorded at RBC by clicking here. Most sermons last about 40 to 45 minutes. Depending on when the speaker takes the platform, the Family Bible Hour/Sunday School service usually ends between12:00 - 12:15 PM.

We hope to see you soon!
