Redland Baptist Church will host one of this year’s VBS Regional Clinics held by the BCMD! VBS workers from the surrounding areas will be attending workshops on Lifeway’s VBS Curriculum “Galactic Starveyors” on Saturday, February 25, 9:30am-2pm (lunch included). To learn more about this clinic and for non-Redlander registration, click here. If you are a Redlander, please register with Peggy Peek or our RBC Camp Directors (see contact info below) by February 23.
If you are a Redland adult or youth planning to work with RBC Camp this year or just considering the idea, we HIGHLY recommend attending this training! You may use this workshop in place of one of our standard RBC Camp training sessions, and it will be free to Redland members.
Redland children in Kindergarten – 5th grade Sunday School are invited to join us Saturday, February 25, 9-10:30am, to lead the VBS/RBC Camp songs you have already started learning during Sunday School. Get your free RBC Camp T-shirt early while serving as a local missionary! Parents, please fill out the permission slip that was sent home from Sunday School and in an e-mail.
For more information, contact Peggy Peek at (peggypeek at redlandbaptist dot org) or our RBC Camp Directors at (rbccamp at gmail dot com).
Tying into our Core Beliefs lesson on the Bible this past Sunday, this verse reminds us to put our faith into practice by obeying God’s Word. Youth can recite this to a youth leader for a candy bar prize!
This Sunday we’ll take a peek at the mystery of the Godhead as revealed in Scripture. We will learn that we can trust God as He has revealed Himself to us, even while realizing that God is beyond our comprehension.
The mission trip page has all of our trip updates since the location change. Here’s what you’ll find:
Updated pricing – at $375, this is much cheaper than before!

Our World Changers Mission Trip location has been confirmed. We are headed to Neptune…that’s Neptune, New Jersey.
(Quick backstory: Our original location had to be changed due to low registrations, so last Sunday we narrowed our choices down to two possibilities)
We are headed to Neptune, NJ and will do ministry involving Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!
Why not our other location choice? We had discussed the possibility of traveling to Franklin, NC – and half our group wanted this choice. However, registration is currently full, so that “closed door” solidified the New Jersey location.
Details will be released soon on schedule specifics. For now, plan on July 8-15 and look for more information soon. Trip page will be updated when those details are clarified.
How are we supposed to handle money? We’ll talk about that at Fuel this Sunday…with a pretty fun game, too.
Come ready for great discussion and helpful advice that will help you learn about your own value and how we value money.
By the way, we’re hoping to have an extended series on financial stewardship in the coming months for high school students. Stay tuned!
In Sunday School this week we’ll take a look at Esther’s life. She had to trust that God was working his plan even though there was know way of knowing.
We’re in the same boat sometimes, ourselves. Here’s a conversation sheet to use with your student.
See you Sunday!
In Sunday School this week we’ll discuss the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple following the exile. This was no easy task. Much like a camping trip, where we’re scrambling for supplies, everything was more difficult for the Jewish people who came back to their land and had to start from scratch. Their task involved trusting God in the face of opposition, too.
We’re told in the New Testament that we ourselves are temples and that the Holy Spirit dwells inside believers. This begs the question, “How is your ‘temple’?” How is your heart? Sometimes we need to rebuild it – or at least do some maintenance to ensure we are following Christ faithfully.
Take some time this week to discuss this with your teen. Use a discussion guide to help you.
This week during Sunday School, our youth will discuss the return of God’s people from their exile. They’ll see the struggle it can be to make worship our first priority. The Israelites returning had an uphill battle just to get settled and rebuild their city. They had to learn that our worship of God must come first. Everything else follows our priorities.
This is a great discussion opportunity for you and your student. Use this sheet to help bring it up: tgp_win17_oneconversations_05
