The Snowy Youth Lock-in

An exciting ARBC Youth Lock-in was held this past Friday. Almost 40 kids showed up, despite the chilly blizzard-like conditions! The night was filled with basketball, baseball, rock-climbing, bowling, games of Christian-guard, way too much pop (coke if you’re from the South), and more. Thanks to all the Youth for showing up and to the adults who stayed up all night! Here are a few photos…

The batting cage. The Youth did great, but rumor has it one of the adults stepped in front of a 60 mph baseball that night…

Help Us, Help Others

The Missions page (link located on the right side of the page, labed Missions) has been updated. There are tons of new missions to be involved in at ARBC. I’m sure that the page will continually have new updates as to what you can be involved in.

Amazing Grace

Amazing GraceThe famous song will have a new movie to along with its title. Amazing Grace is based on the true story of William Wilberforce, a British statesman and reformer from the early part of the 19th century. This feature film chronicles his extraordinary contributions to the world, primarily his 20-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, which he won in 1807. Wilberforce was also instrumental in passing legislation to abolish slavery in the British colonies, a victory he won just three days before his death in 1833.

Amazing Grace opens February 23rd. Click here to see the trailer and get movie times.
