He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

As our church continued to know Christ and make Him known this past year, we did so in a world marked by change. Truly, this has been a year of unprecedented change at Reston Bible Church, and we found the Lord’s blessing in many changes taking place within the life and rhythms of our church. At His gracious direction and timing, our senior pastor of almost 50 years has been called to pass the baton. Our youth pastor of more than 30 years has taken an exciting new role at RBC. The Lord has provided new ministry leaders for our Women’s Ministry, the Food Pantry, and International Connection program. Many new and returning faces can be seen faithfully serving our youth and children. A lot has changed, but what has not changed is our desire to know Christ and make Him known as we gather, grow, give and go—all for God’s glory. As you scroll through this page, be encouraged and rejoice with us at how He continues to use His church to accomplish Kingdom purposes. A lot has changed this year, but praise God that He never will.

We continued to face many challenges this year with COVID, but God was faithful to bring the Children’s Ministry through another fruitful year of sowing seeds into the lives of the next generation. We had a few new events like the first annual missions cornhole tournament as well as our Family Quest Challenge party held outside for the first time with a dunk tank, which was a big hit with 100+ kids and parents! We’ve had more families come back to in-person gatherings so it actually felt good to be a little crowded in the halls of the Quest area again! We look forward to continuing to partner with you in raising the next generation to know Christ and make Him known.
