At RBC, our main teaching emphasis is on Sunday mornings. Peer-to-peer teaching is also a component of mid-week small groups.
Opening Devotional: At the beginning of the Communion service, there is a pre-arranged short devotional to open the service. Its focus is on the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Its purpose is to encourage those who worship to better appreciate who Christ is and what He has done.
Family Bible Hour: Teaching is usually done in a series-format of anywhere from 3-8 weeks. The Teaching Council, with input from the elders, takes responsibility for planning the teaching series and booking speakers. Examples of some recent series include The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission, Counterfeit Gods and Reaching Beyond the Walls and a whole book study of the Gospel of Luke.
Comments, questions or suggestions about the FBH teaching time can be included on this Comment Card and submitted to the Teaching committee.

Mid-Week Small Groups
Community Groups: During the week smaller groups of RBCers meet to fellowship and study the Bible together. Groups are free to choose their own themes or topics of study. Often, they will take a semester to study a whole book of the Bible such as Colossians or Ephesians. Other groups use small group study guides to focus their time of study together. Small groups may have one or more facilitators. Visit the Community Groups page for more information about the groups that are currently available.
