ANNOUNCEMENTS

October 2, 2011

Ravensworth Baptist Church

is an inclusive and welcoming Christian community where expressing the love of God to all people is central to our worship, study, and service. We welcome you to our church, and hope you experience the warmth of God’s love and ours while you are here.

WELCOME TO RBC!

“Love one another as I have loved you.”
John 15:12

Today, October 2, 2011, is the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost.

We are very pleased to have you with us as we worship God together.
