I am not that proficient in Blender, and this has me baffled. I have it set to Cycles Render and I am using a single material that is Cycles also. I have a scene when the view port shading is set to rendered looks like this: enter image description here

but this is what is rendered:

enter image description here

this is my outliner:

I had to add the outliner to the first image because you need 10 reputation points. really??

Any help would be appreciated.

Look at your outliner, see the 'template' object at the bottom? You have set that object to be rendered (camera icon) but you have hidden in it in the viewport (eyeball is greyed out). So it is appearing in your renders -- you want to hide its render visibility (by clicking the camera icon) so it is greyed out. That or just delete the entire object.
