Who We Are
Rainsville First Family is just that...we're a family.
It is our greatest desire to be a family that is real, transparent, and a family that is growing daily in Christ.
Our mission is to first engage with God in ways that are relevant and life-changing.
We seek to be disciples of Jesus Christ, and we seek to be disciples who make disciples...
transforming the lives of those around us with the great love of our Lord.
Our faith is grounded in the infallibility of Scripture,
and we believe in the tenets put forth in the Baptist Faith and Message.
Below are links to The Baptist Faith and Message and our church by-laws.
Whether you are a returning guest, or you are walking through our doors
for the very first time, you can expect to be welcomed at Rainsville First Family!
Our greeters will be there as you enter to start your visit with us off right!
If you're visiting during our 9:00 AM Sunday School hour, they will assist you and your family in choosing
from a wide variety of Small Group Sunday School classes. They will personally escort you to that class,
and they will be sure that every family member, from infants through senior adults, find their right place.
If your visit begins during our 10:15 AM Corporate Worship hour, our greeters will welcome you, they will help you find the right place for childcare (if needed), and they will even help you find a seat in the auditorium.
Our Greeter Team is here to help make sure that your visit with us is easy and comfortable.
The center-point of our corporate worship is always the preaching of the authentic message of Scripture.
Pastor David Cofield boldly delivers that message every Sunday at 10:15AM and 6:00PM,
and Wednesday evening at 6:15 PM. The messages are thoughtful, relevant,
and they are delivered with passion and Biblical-accuracy.
The worship of God through music is important in the life of any church,
and we are blessed to have a great Worship Ministry here at Rainsville First Family!
Led by our Worship Pastor, Keith Beatty, all of music on Sunday is performed live by a very gifted group of musicians and singers. Our worship music is exciting, heartfelt, dynamic, and intentionally directed to bring glory
and honor to our awesome God. Our primary worship "style" is contemporary, but Pastor Keith is diverse,
so you can expect to hear a blend of worship songs that cover many years and genres.
On Wednesday evenings, Pastor Keith leads alone from the piano.
This time of worship will primarily consist of more traditional worship music and hymns.
Rainsville First Family is a great place for your kids! From newborns to teens, we have a place for them here,
a place where they can not only have fun and engage with other children, but a place where they
will learn about wonderful love of Jesus!
These ministries are led by our Student Pastor, Zac Gardner,
and our Children's Minister, Whitney Traylor.
On Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM, we have graded Small Group Sunday School classes for all ages,
in addition to a specific Children's Worship for kids age 3 through 4th grade in our Children's Center.
On Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM, we offer and exciting ministry for children,
ages 3 through 6th grade, called Arrow Kids' Club. In this ministry, children will participate in
creative, fun, and engaging lessons, crafts, games, and much more!
For 7th through 12th graders, our "RFBCIstudents Ministry" meets at 6:00 PM in our Student Center.
This time is filled with great worship music, led by our Student Praise Band, and the profound message
of God's Word, delivered by Pastor Zac. Over the year, this minstry will engage our students with times of fun
and games, service projects, retreats, and the life-applicable teaching of Scripture.
Following our 10:15 AM morning worship service, Pastor David and his wife, Roxanne,
hold a "Pastor and Wife Reception." This is a time specifically set aside for our guests to personally engage
with our pastor, get to him and his wife, ask questions, pray together, etc...
Pastor David will also have a gift for our guests from the church.
The location of the "Pastor and Wife Reception" will be clearly announced at the end of each service, and the location is clearly marked directly across the hallway from the main auditorium. We encourage our guests
to take a moment to meet Pastor David and Roxanne, pick up your free gift, and then join us again in the future!
Let's make this simple...come just as you are!
We don't desire that you stress about what you wear to worship at Rainsville First Family!
If you want to dress up, that's not a problem for us at all; however, most of our congregation arrives
"casual and comfortable." You can feel free to do the same!
Our guest parking is clearly marked, directing you to our large guest parking area
located immediately off of Church Avenue. We also have special parking reserved for parents
with children under 2 years of age. This parking is also located directly off of Church Avenue.
