One of the best ways to get involved and connected at Round Hill Baptist Church is through one of our small groups. With the Bible as our centerpiece, we engage in spiritual dialog and discussion, looking for ways to care for one another, grow in our faith, serve others, and reach out beyond our walls. Small groups at RHBC are arranged by age, life stage, or special interest and meet for the purpose of developing friendships and growing in their relationship with God. The only thing really missing is you!
Although it’s exciting to watch our church grow, we know that larger numbers and multiple services can also make it easy for people to “fall through the cracks,” particularly for those who are new to the church. We believe that everyone who walks through the door has a place at Round Hill Baptist, and we are committed to helping you to find that place.
Take a minute to look at our Ministry page and take a look at the groups listed. In addition to a brief description, you can jump to the individual group pages shown on the right, under the “get involved” section for more information and contact information for the individual group leader. Please feel free to give them a call if you have questions. If you prefer, you can give the church office a call at (540) 775·5583.
Still not sure? Just show up at the appointed hour and ask someone for help. We’ll get you where you need to be!
Classes start at 9:45 am Sunday mornings.
Youth Group – a place to BELONG!
Here at RHBC, our mission is to love God, love people, share Jesus, and make disciples. And we think that the youth has a voice to be heard in that mission! We believe that Jesus is worth following. As believers, we have an awesome opportunity to be a part of God’s story, and we believe that youth play a vital role in this mission.
Round Hill offers many opportunities for service and spiritual growth for youth in grades 7 – 12. In addition to Sunday School and worship participation through music and drama, the student ministry is deeply involved in Missions and community outreach. Our youth pastor, Kris Hutchinson, keeps everything organized and moving forward.
Bottom line? We want to help you find your place in God’s plan. We want to help you grow spiritually, and to be challenged. But nobody said it has to be boring!
Youth Group on Sundays at 5:30pm in the Fellowship Hall
KID’S MINISTRIES – a place to grow
All girls in grades 1-6 are invited to join GAs. As GAs we learn about missionaries, pray for missionaries, give to missions and participate in mission projects. With each mission project, we are spreading God’s love to those in need. GAs lays the foundation for a life-long missions lifestyle. Annual events include Christmas in August, filling shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse and selling jar mixes. Last year, our jar mixes raised $1,200 for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, support for a Compassion-sponsored girl in India and support for Emily Minter in China. In January we made goodie bags for residents of a local domestic violence shelter. In April we made lollipop flowers and delivered them in May along with the Round Hill Rejoicers to the residents at the Westmoreland Rehab Center in Colonial Beach. We attend GA Mom & Me at Eagle Eyrie. For fun, we enjoy pool parties, skating, bowling and we usually have a sleepover in the summer.Royal Ambassadors
Royal Ambassadors is our group for boys in grades 1-6. RAs are affiliated with a Baptist missions discipleship organization working towards helping these young men to become members of a faith-based brotherhood. Through hands-on activities that encourage spiritual growth, games and sports, and mentoring relationships with RA leaders, boys learn what it truly means to become “Ambassadors for Christ.”Mission Friends
Mission Friends is our mission group for boys and girls ages 3 – K. Wondering how young can a child be and still learn Christian missions concepts? The preschool years! From babies to kindergartners, Mission Friends provides the building blocks of faith and a basic awareness of God’s love for all people.
Girls in Action
Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) – a place to share
If you’ve been around RHBC for more than 10 minutes or so, you’ve likely noticed a WMU-sponsored event or project in progress. WMU is affiliated with a larger organization that believes that missions is a lifestyle. Their purpose — to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God. And here at Round Hill Baptist, our women’s group has redrawn the lines on where the mission field begins!

THE BROTHERHOOD – a place to lead
The men at Round Hill Baptist Church take service seriously! The Brotherhood really only knows one way to approach a project, and that’s “All Ahead Full!”
The men’s group officially meets on the first Saturday morning of the month at 7 am for a Prayer Breakfast, followed by the woodcutting ministry, where they provide firewood for the heating needs of many folks in the King George area (as of March, 21 dump truck loads to 22 different families, and counting!) But it doesn’t stop there. You can find the Brotherhood involved in any number of service projects where there’s a need, the lastest involving a remodel at Pastor Ted’s house. In each case, you’ll find the older men teaching skills to the younger folks, but make no mistake. The most important thing being taught here is how to be a man of God.
Sounds like a lot of work? Well, it is, but there’s more. The Brotherhood gets involved in several conferences throughout the church year. These are opportunities for men to learn how to be more effective, more spiritual, better communicators, and in general, better men.
Top this off with a chance to fellowship, and you have the Brotherhood. What are you doing next Saturday…?
AWARE – a place to reflect
Our senior adult fellowship has adopted a new name and a new meeting time, but our commitment to provide a vibrant and active ministry for the “over 55” crowd… unchanged!
AWARE meets for a potluck luncheon and meeting on the third Friday of every month at noon. The program varies from a “mini-message” from Ted, to a guest speaker, and sometimes special music, but fellowship is always an important part of the agenda. And while the programs are always a blessing, this is really a place for senior adults to minister to each other!
Naming this group “AWARE” was no accident… these folks are all about a lifetime of service. They encourage each other to be “aware” of the needs around them locally, and to the worldaround them. Within a few weeks of their first meeting, AWARE had already adopted a group called “Soles4Souls”, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing some basic needs to men, women, and children around the world.
If you’re 55 years or older and want to fellowship with a group of people who are committed to each other, and more importantly, to the Lord, join us for lunch on the third Friday of the month!
RHBC MUSIC MINISTRY- a place to make a joyful noise!
Our adult choir helps to lead worship in the 8:30 Sanctuary service every week, as well as several special programs throughout the year. Under the direction of our Minister of Music, Donna Barnum, the RHBC choir embraces a repertoire that spans a wide spectrum of choral music. If you have a love of music and a desire to serve, this may be exactly the place for you!
The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m.
The worship band plays for the late service and features contemporary instruments and modern worship music. On any given Sunday you can hear songs from Desperation Band, Chris Tomlin, and Matt Redmond just to name a few. Instrumentation includes guitars, keyboards, and drums and lyrics are projected using the latest multimedia software.
The band rehearses every Tuesday at 6:00p. Sing or play an instrument? Let us know!
Our 1st - 6th grade choir is made up of an enthusiastic group of young musicians that regularly participate in worship services and typically present a special program of their own once or twice a year. They learn music, interpretive movements, and how to work together in worship. We could all learn something from that!
Rejoicers rehearse Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 7:15 p.m.
Our 4-5 year old children's choir is one of our newest additions to the music ministry at RHBC. These kids show an astonishing capacity to grasp concepts and sing praises to our Lord. As a part of our preschool music program, the rehearsals are scheduled during the daytime to minimize wear and tear on the kids (and their parents!)
Music Makers rehearse Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Our 2-3 year old children's choir is our youngest group of musicians here at Round Hill. The concept of "making a joyful noise" is not lost on these kids! As the other half of our preschool music program, these young ones are learning skills that will serve them throughout their walk in Christian service. And let's face it, they're adorable!
Tiny Tunes rehearse Mondays from 1:00-1:45 p.m.
