Community Groups

Here at BBC we believe that rich, biblical community is essential for strong spiritual growth. In order to grow deeper in our relationships together we created five Community Groups, each meeting on a different night of the week. 

PURPOSE:

To build rich biblical community by gathering regularly together in a home in order to find persevering grace in the family of faith God has given us.

FAQs:

WHY DID WE START COMMUNITY GROUPS?
We believe that rich, biblical community is essential for our spiritual well-being. God has not created us to be alone. While we have never intentionally neglected our need for deep community, often we don’t prioritize it. Community Groups is our church’s way of putting biblical community back in the forefront of our church’s life.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A COMMUNITY GROUP?
Because life is too hard, sin is too alluring, and individually we are too weak to walk this Christian life all alone. We need each other. God has designed us to live in community.

HOW LONG DOES A COMMUNITY GROUP GATHERING LAST?
A typical Community Group gathering will last between one-and-a-half and two hours.

ARE CHILDREN WELCOME AT COMMUNITY GROUPS?
Yes. We want to share our lives together and that certainly includes are families! Our kids will styart with us, possibly pray with us, and then head off to another part of the house for the Bible Study where they will be watched by at least two unrelated group members.

WHAT WILL WE DO DURING A TYPICAL GATHERING?
Some groups start with snacks, some with meals, and some do one or the other on different weeks of the month. Following the food and fellowship, we will share our lives by praying for each other. We will end the evening by revisiting the Scripture passage from Sunday morning, seeking to apply it to our lives.

I AM A GUEST OR REGULAR ATTENDER AT BBC; CAN I COME TO A GROUP?
Yes! You are welcome to join us for this time of fellowship. We hope you'll find it encouraging and a great way to get to know us.

PLEASE NOTE: Because schedules can change, kids get sick, vacations pop up, and life in general can be unpredictable, it's always a good idea to contact the hosts to make sure their group is meeting as scheduled, and to let them know you're coming... they'll be excited!
