Sunday School

This year, we are starting simple with one class meeting together in Room #106. This is another way to embrace our intergenerational body of believers. The first thing that the class will study is Apologetics, with Mike Graber teaching. In a world that has a variety of belief structures, it is paramount that we understand what we believe and understand the sound reasons for our belief. 

Small Groups

The purpose of our small groups is to build intentional communities within our congregation by doing life together, discussing scripture together (through a guided book/study) and praying together, often sharing a snack or meal together! Small group members of all ages and with or without children invest in each other through prayer and relationship. Our small group leaders offer a variety of days & times to meet and in a variety of ways to help meet your needs (in-person, Zoom or hybrid).  Complete the online form to let us know of your interest.

Women

Programs and events for all women

Grace Women’s Ministry at BBC provides opportunities for women to know Christ and make Him known. Join us to study God’s Word together, gather together to worship and build community with each other and minister together to those in need.

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy  of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him:  bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;  giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.”  

Colossians 1:9-12

"IF: Table"*

 

*IF God is real, then what…?

Throughout the year, different women host an “IF: Table” in their home for a simple meal, scripture, 4 questions & Christ-centered conversation.  Whether you’d like to gather at one of these tables or host one, please let us know through the contact form below.

 

Grace Christmas Gathering

Friday, December 9th at 7pm

Plan to join us for this special evening celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  For this annual event, we’ll have a special program, along with a fancy dessert which will be served by men of BBC.  You have the opportunity to host a table by simply decorating it in your own Christmas style, but reflecting Christ in some way. We’ll provide the guests or you can invite guests to sit with you!  Or, let us know if you would like to attend as a guest!  No cost to you but we will be collecting PJs, pillows and diapers for The Compassion Connection (more information on our partnership below).  Either way, please sign up via the contact form below by December 2nd.

"Find Your People" 6:30pm Bible study - starts the week of January 16th @ 6:30pm (M or TH - TBD)

“In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. But so many are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness.  In “Find Your People”, bestselling author Jennie Allen draws on fascinating insights from science and history, timeless biblical truth, and vulnerable stories from her own life to help you:

  • Overcome the barriers to making new friends and learn to initiate with easy-to-follow steps
  • Find simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations
  • Understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them
  • Identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need
  • Learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the type of friends you’ve always longed for

We’d love to have you join us for this study.  Please use the contact form to let us know by January 2 if a Monday or Thursday evening would work better for you.  We’ll then determine which evening it will be offered starting the week of January 16.

 

Current studies which started this Fall:

  • God of Freedom (by Jen Wilkin),

  • Sermon on the Mount (by John Stott)

  • Find Your People (by Jennie Allen).

Contact us if you’d like to jump in or would like information about doing one of these studies on your own or with others.
