Junior Church
Our Junior Church program meets during the Sunday morning worship service and provides age appropriate Bible stories , songs and crafts. We also have a puppet stage where puppets help teach the truths of the Bible stories and help the children to learn songs and Bible verses .
Awana Club is fun with a purpose. AWANA is an acronym based on 2 Timothy 2:15… Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. Founded in 1950 in Chicago, Illinois, Awana Club is a Bible-centered ministry for children of all ages. RTBC’s Awana Club is one of over 14,000 Awana Clubs found internationally. There are Awana Clubs in all 50 United States and 109 countries. Special events include the grand prix race every year which is fun for kids and parents alike!

At RTBC, the Awana Club meets Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM September through April.

The preschool program uses games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities to make each week an experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
Children in kindergarten and on through second grade take part in our Sparks program. Building on the basics learned in Cubbies, Sparks combines learning with fun to make each week exciting as the children learn more about God’s Word.
Truth & Training
The next step in our Awana Club program is the Truth & Training Club for third through sixth graders. With many exciting features to get kids enthusiastic about God’s Word, T&T helps trains the leaders of tomorrow learn about God and His Word through scripture memory and fellowship. The evening also include game time and council time.
Creation Clubs
Looking around us, we can see complex design and intricate relationships in the natural world that testify to the creative, life-giving hand of God. In Creation Club, we learn the definition and effect of worldview – the overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world around them.

The Bible is the “History Book of the Universe”, wherein the God of Creation reveals Himself and His thoughts toward mankind. Our worldview is based solely on Bible – the inerrant, cohesive, inspired Word of God. We study our way through the 7 C’s of History, exploring the literal days of Creation, mankind’s fall into a state of sin, the effects of the global flood of Noah’s day, the dispersion of people groups at the Tower of Babel, the birth of Christ our Savior – God in the flesh, the sacrifice of Christ on the cross to redeem us from our lost and sinful state, and ultimately – His plan to make all things new (Rev. 21:5).

Creation Club begins in June and runs through the end of August, about 11 weeks duration.
It is for grades K-6. We also have a Preschool Creation Club for ages 3-5. We meet at 7 PM on Wednesdays in the gym. We begin with lesson time, then have snack time and conclude with game/craft time.

We often have special guest speakers:
– Mark Dowler – Bible Science Safari
– Karl Priest – Insects Bug Evolution
– Water Night with the Ripley VFD and
