WHAT TO EXPECT
We strives to remain loyal to the Word of God, through preaching the Scriptures and allowing them to shape our thinking, practices and ministries. We are also committed to Christ-centered worship and Biblical fellowship. We are striving as a body of believers to honor our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. At RMBC, we endeavor to be welcoming and friendly and we long for the opportunity to minister to our neighbors and our community.
What time are the services?
Sunday School for all ages meets at 10:00am and the morning Sunday Worship Service begins at 11:00am. We also have Wednesday night prayer meeting & Bible classes at 6:00pm.
How do I get to here?
What happens when I get there?
Our information desk is just inside the main entrance. Our greeters will give you a bulletin and assist you in getting to your class or into the service.
What children's programs are available?
Our children's ministry offers Sunday school for children ages birth - 6th grade. We offer beginner church, primary church and junior church for those who prefer to have children in a "children's church" service as they worship. On Wednesday nights, our Expeditions program offers a variety of scripture memory, exciting activities, and Bible instruction.
What do I do before the service starts?
If you arrive before the service starts, you will notice that our auditorium is filled with plenty of comfortable pews. There are no reserved seats, so you may sit anywhere. Many people will be greeting one another during this time.
What are the services like?
Services generally last between 1 hour and 15 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes. Our worship services are a time of joyful worship and praise, with a variety of music presented by our choir and orchestra.
How will I know when to stand?
The pastor or the music director will ask the congregation to stand or sit. Often, we will stand while singing and during times of public prayer.
What is the pastor's message like?
Pastor gives Biblically-based messages lasting about 30 minutes. The messages are timely and applicable. You can also listen to us online.
Do you give public invitations at the end of the service? What are they like?
At the end of his message, Pastor invites anyone who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ to accept Him as Savior. He will also ask those who would like to become part of our church family or to be baptized to make that known. Counseling is also available for other spiritual needs.
Do I need to donate money when I visit?
RMBC does believe tithing is a Biblical principal and we do encourage it. However, our guests should not feel any obligation to participate. During the offering time, if you have filled out the guest welcome card, we will ask you to drop it in the offering plate.
What happens after the service?
We are dismissed from the service and many spend time fellowshiping together in the vestibule.
What small groups or Adult Bible Study classes are offered on Sundays?
We encourage people to visit our Adult Bible Study classes in order to get to know people that are your age. Classes are offered for all ages at 9:30am every Sunday. Greeters at the information desk can direct you to your room and will have the most updated list of adult, teen, children's and preschool classes and locations. They can also guide you to your rooms. This is a time of fellowship, encouragement, and studying the Word of God.
