What to ExpectA Typical Sunday at RBC
When you visit us at Reformed Baptist Church of Franconia, you can expect to find a congregation in love with each other, passionate for Christ, committed to learning and being shaped by God’s Word, and delighting in God’s sovereign grace. We want our big thoughts of God not only to anchor and undergird us in times of disappointment and suffering, but we want these great truths to so to inform our fellowship and service that we are marked as people who truly know God.
And so you should expect to find the fellowship at RBC unusually rich. You should expect to find us loving to sing praise to our great Redeemer, eagerly giving our offerings and ourselves to him, and expectantly listening to God’s Word as it is opened for us.
If you would like more particulars, perhaps here are some that may be helpful:
- Our services are not formal and staid, but neither are they trite and mundane.
- The songs we sing are both traditional and contemporary but always substantive, meaningful, and singable.
- The preaching is always straight from the Bible (“expository”), theologically informed, and personally applied.
- The preaching always seeks to edify even the most advanced Christians among us while at the same time addressing even the newest and least acquainted with scripture or the Christian faith — simple, but not shallow.
- The individual “fellowship times” and “catching up” times with friends before and after the services are consistently joyful and encouraging.
- Bible classes and ministries for all ages.
- We are decidedly family oriented and family supportive, so much so that we are careful not to create an environment where you are pressured to “over-commit” to a number of programs.
- Our Sunday Morning service is marked primarily by singing and hearing God’s Word.
- Our Sunday Evening service is marked by singing, testimonies, sharing of concerns, prayer, and hearing God’s Word.
- Our Wednesday prayer service is marked by… prayer!
- Dress / Attire? We don’t make much of that here — you’ll find us in all styles, formal, informal, and casual.
Do you have any particular needs or concerns? If so, please do let us know. We will be happy to pray with you and provide counseling anytime… at no charge, of course.
Any further questions? Contact us anytime — we’d love to get acquainted.
