What’s the service like?
We consider our service to be informal, allowing each person to experience God in
their own personal way. Our worship service is designed to allow you to draw
close to God through music, giving, fellowship, preaching and prayer:
Music – Our worship team, led by Associate Pastor Dylan Ruby,
seeks God’s direction on the song selection each week. The music is selected
based on the scripture passages that will be used by the Pastor that week. The
music is a blend between the classic Baptist Hymns like Amazing Grace, the Old Rugged
Cross, How Great Thou Art, and others; and contemporary songs heard on
Christian Radio today. The Worship team’s primary goal is to lead the
congregation in praising God through song.
Fellowship – After our morning announcements,
we take about 5 minutes and get out of our pews and go around and greet one
another. This time is an opportunity for each person to shake hands and get to
know our members, attenders, and guests.
Giving – During the service, our ushers will
be directed to the front of the sanctuary. Our Pastor will pray for the
collection of tithes and offerings to be used for God’s glory. Our ushers will
then pass an offering plate down each aisle. Please do not feel obligated or
pressured to give anything during this time. Our members use this time as
another form of worship. They give freely based on their love for the Lord and
their desire to please God. If you desire to participate in giving, there is an
offering envelope located on the pew in front of you. Checks can be made out to
CRBC. We thank you in advance for your generous donations offered out of love
for the Lord.
Preaching – Pastor Don uses “expository preaching”
style to share God’s word with the congregation. Expository preaching is
reading God’s word and then explaining the topics addressed. Pastor Don
typically gives background on the scripture, explains the meaning of the
passages, and then provides application for use today. Pastor Don uses the New
International Version text when reading the scriptures, but he also enjoys reading
from the English Standard Version (ESV), King James Version (KJV), New American
Standard Bible (NASB) and the Christian Standard Bible (CSB).
Prayer – As the service comes to an end, Pastor Don will
challenge the congregation with an alter call. This is a time for all to
reflect on the message, and how they need to respond. The invitation is for all
to come to the front if they want to pray, talk with the Pastor, or announce a
decision to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, be baptized, or join the
How do people normally dress?
We do not have a formal dress attire. Please dress casual and comfortable.
How long is the service?
Service begins at 11:00 am and usually ends around 12:00 noon.
What about kids?
During service, parents of infants are welcome to keep your child in the service or
use our “comfort room” which has a window to view into the service area along
with a speaker system to hear the message. For preschool aged children, we provide
care which includes a bible story and lesson, snack and play time.
