RBCY

Rockford Baptist Church Youth

For students in 6th - 12th Grade


 

Staff is working through start dates and plans for the fall ministry. More details coming. 

RBCY

RBCY is for students 6th through 12th grade.

At RBCY we are all about helping students to Engage in the Gospel and Expand it’s effects here on earth. A typical gathering usually includes some hangout and games, some time spent in the Bible, and wraps up with talking through what that means for us today.

  • RBCY is moving to a new day & time

    PARENTS: In a desire to make it easier for your kids to attend and create an environment that has more students and more comfort level to bring friends we are changing our Wednesday Night Programing to be on Sunday Night instead. 


    We will kick off this new set up on September 26th. Our plan is to meet from 5 PM – to 6:30 or 7:00 PM. I say 6:30 or 7:00 because that last 30 minutes will be a lot of just hanging out together and building relationships. So if you have a need to pick up students early or whatever, feel free to. Below is a rough thought on what most nights will look like:

    • 5:00-5:20 – Hangout/Mingle
    • 5:20-5:40 – Games and Announcements
    • 5:40-6:00 – Lesson
    • 6:00 onward – Dinner/Small Group Conversations/Hangout

    We are hoping that this change will be a better fit for your family’s busy schedules and allow more kids to be involved and excited about youth group. And yes, we will be providing dinner each night!
