RBC student ministries exist to cause these three that remain; faith,hope,and love to grow to maturity through authentic community, bible literacy, discipleship, ministry, missions & worship. That RBC students would know their worth and identity is found in a saving, trusting, believing relationship with the Lord Jesus. We seek in all our endeavors to Glorify God, Make Disciples and Love People.
“May Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith being rooted and grounded in love, so that you may comprehend…and know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19.

Special Events / Activities
Winter Retreat is a high school event grades 9-12 involving RBC students and their invited guests. Students travel out of town for a 3-day retreat during one of the holiday weekends in either January or February. This is one of the best attended, most talked about activities every year. Tons of fun with group activities like Topgolf, Mainevent, Union Station and more are integrated into large group worship and bible teaching times. Sprinkled throughout the weekend are small group devotional times. To top it off – outstanding home cooked meals and a “night out on the town” to eat at a local restaurant.
Summer Mission Trip is for mature, committed high school students who want to grow in their faith through missions and service. RBC partners with a well established mission organization to provide our students with hands-on service projects designed to open opportunities to share the gospel with those being served. This week-long investment purposes to cause students active participation in the building of God’s kingdom in a community and culture different from our own.
Various other Middle School and High School events and activities occur throughout the year such as; FCA Fields of Faith, Paintball, Swim Parties, Back-to-School Bash, Youth Christmas party, and ice-skating just to name a few.
