Fall Schedule

Redland Baptist Church 2020-2021 Ministry Programs

The word of the season is flexibility. We understand that during these uncertain and constantly changing times, flexibility is key. While some of our ministry programs adapt well to meeting online or a hybrid of meeting in-person and online, some ministry programs do not and will need to delay their start dates or postpone until further notice.
Please look for a new Redland Survey in your email soon! We need your feedback as we continue to make adjustments to ministry options this fall.
See below for further details on our ministry programs.

Fall Plans

as of August 26, 2020

Worship

Vibrant corporate worship is a strength here at Redland. Our new Campus Hospitality Team and newly expanded Tech Team ministry are striving each week to fulfill the calling of providing the best possible online worship experience for our Redland family during Covid-19. Because we are called to exalt the Triune God in regular worship, we expect this need to continue for the foreseeable future.
  • Campus Hospitality Team Volunteers 
    The ministry of the Campus Hospitality Team is vital to the success of our in-person worship in making people feel safe to come into God’s house for worship.
  • Tech Team Volunteers 
    Many and various technical needs are required to produce weekly online “Live Stream” worship. To keep this ministry ongoing and moving forward will require many more people willing to serve. Everyone serving on this team is a volunteer. No one is a professional nor an expert (but we do consult both regularly). Redland is looking for people with serving hearts that are willing and trainable.
  • Worship Music Programs
    Our worship music programs at RBC; Grace Notes Children’s Handbells, Kids For Praise Children’s Choirs, Waves of Grace Youth Choir & Handbells, Celebration Bells Adult Handbells, Sanctuary Choir, Gospel Choir, Orchestra, and Worship Team will not be resuming this fall. 
  • Music for Kids At Home
    Beginning in October, we will make available “at home” music activities, videos, sing alongs, and more for all children age 4 through Grade 5. These will be fun music games and activities to keep the children learning and singing until we are able to resume these programs!

Families and Discipleship Groups

  • Adult Grace Groups and Ministry 
    September is the perfect month to get involved in Adult Ministry! We pray pandemic restrictions will ease in the coming months, allowing more and more in-person groups and studies to meet. Meanwhile, visit redlandbaptist.org/groups to find the latest information on Grace Groups, and Men's, Women's, Young Adults, and Senior Adults Ministries. Many are beginning exciting, new studies starting in September.
  • Women's Ministry Bible Study
    This fall, both the Tuesday morning and evening ladies Bible study groups will be doing a virtual in depth study of Paul's letter to the Galatians, which is astonishingly relevant to our present world. Galatians: Now That Faith Has Come is a collaboration between Beth Moore and her daughter, Melissa. This online study will be released on Tuesday, September 15 with 7 video sessions and 6 weeks of homework. If you are interested in joining on Tuesday mornings, contact Sue Adams; or on Tuesday evenings, contact Lisa Jenkins.
  • Men's 3D Ministry
    Men’s 3D Ministry at Redland intentionally invests in men so that they become both an effective, stable force for good and catalyzing change agents for God. The current plan for Men’s Ministry is to meet once a month on Tuesday for Bible Study, prayer and fellowship. Stay tuned for details.
  • Young Adult Bible Study
    Our Young Adult Community (college age and singles age 18-30’s) has combined their Sunday Grace Group and Thursday Bible Study. They meet virtually for Bible study and prayer on Thursdays, 6:30-9pm. E-mail Peggy Peek for a Zoom invite.  
  • Wednesday Pastor's Bible Study
    For now, we will continue with the online Prayer Chat on Wednesdays at 7pm. Join us!
  • Wednesday Fellowship Meals
    Fellowship dinners at RBC will not take place this fall. We hope to resume in 2021.

Children

  • Preschool/Children's Sunday School and Extended Care Nursery 
    Online video lessons of Lifeway’s materials for Preschool and Children are available HERE. In-person Preschool and Children Sunday School continues to be paused while we wait for further phased reopening in Montgomery County.

    AWANA is a Bible-centered program for children age 3 - Grade 5 which focuses on learning God's Word in a fun atmosphere. “AWANA at Home” registration is now open. Click HERE for more info. For questions, contact the AWANA Commander (awana at redlandbaptist dot org) or Peggy Peek (peggypeek at redlandbaptist dot org).

Youth / Students

The youth ministry is adjusting to the new directions God is leading us during and after the pandemic.
  • RYM Bible Study 
    Youth in grades 6-12 will continue to meet at 10:20am through September. In October, we will transition to smaller Youth Groups that meet either in-person or online. Some may also meet outside the traditional Sunday morning time frame. All participants must register in advance. The registration will be announced soon.
  • RYM Fuel
    Fuel will occur monthly throughout the fall - once monthly for Middle
    School and once monthly for High School students. This will allow us to maintain adequate distancing while programming dynamic evenings. Find more info HERE.

Recreation

  • Adult Exercise Time
