Every day they continued to meet together…They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people…
Acts 2:46— 47 (NIV)

If you are looking to form deeper relationships than the weekly, corporate Sunday services allow, consider joining one of our Groups.  You will find an atmosphere of community and relationships that allows you to grow spiritually and receive wisdom & support for dealing with life’s everyday problems.

There are three distinct types of groups at RTBC:
Ministry: Building relationships and serving others
Fellowship: Connecting people through common interests
Discipleship: Mentoring spiritual relationship

Our groups meet both on our church campus and in other locations in the community.
