Wednesday evenings at HRBC are a time to pause during the week in order to gather for fellowship, laughter, Bible study and encouragement. There is something for every age, no matter your place in the journey of faith.
Fellowship dinners are served from 5:30-6:00pm; children are dismissed at 6:00pm for their activities, and youth and adults meet in a variety of small groups and seminars from 6:15-7:30pm. See details of our adult small groups and seminars below. Classes do fill, please register for your class by clicking on the link.
Winter Lecture Series
Beginning Wednesday, January 8, we will welcome Dr. Art Wright and Dr. Mark Biddle to lead our 2020 Winter Lecture Series. How we disagree and how we treat those with whom we disagree says a lot about who we are and what we believe. With political turmoil boiling over and partisanship at an all time high, does the church’s witness still offer the world an alternative? Or have we succumbed to the same temptations that have led our nation to its current standoff?
On January 8 and 15, Dr. Art Wright, professor of New Testament, will give us instructive Biblical examples that reveal our problem is not a new one. How did Jesus handle conflict? Did the early church ever disagree? How did they deal with division?
On January 22 and 29, Dr. Mark Biddle, professor of Old Testament will offer two current case studies in which people disagree – public support of mass transit in Richmond and the childhood incarceration – and offer a way forward in which Christians can listen to one another and to what is at the heart of an issue.
The more we listen to others, the more we know them, understand them, and can love them like Christ would have us.
Wednesday Night Children and Youth Activities
King’s Kids Choir (K - 5th grade)
This ensemble leads in worship five to eight times per year and participates in seasonal programs and presents a musical in May. In this choir we learn about musical concepts and theory, meaning of sung texts, and worship leadership. Our rehearsal is an action-packed 45 minutes of music and fun! Rehearsal starts at 6:45 pm.
Preschool Music and Missions (ages 2-5)
This is ensemble is designed more for the experience of learning about God through music, rather than presentation of music in worship or concert venue. These are our little ones who sing “sitting” on the floor usually with a guitar accompaniment. “Rehearsal” is from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
12:2 Student Ministries Small Groups
Small groups take the teaching of large group and helps students process it at a more personal level. These groups are divided by age and gender. It is a time where students can pray for each other and learn how to be accountable to each other. This is a place of deeper growth for the students. It takes place during the school year. They meet at 6:15 pm.
Extreme Kids Missions (K - 5th grade)
Children learn how the love of God is being expressed locally and around the world through our partner missions. Children also plan and carry our their own mission experiences. They meet at 6:00 pm.
