This Sunday get better connected with BRBC and come to the monthly Membership Introduction Class, 9:30am in room 104.

This is the week to resolve to start being ministered to and ministering to others in community, like Pastor Jack preached about last Sunday! Take just one small step—and come out to one of the many groups below. We’ll all be blessed through it!

Life Groups Resume – This Week!
New year? It’s a great time to resolve to choose a group close to home and begin to grow in and with that community of believers—or resolve to reconnect with the group that you’ve been a part of!  See a listing of groups here or see the flyer on Sunday. 

Ladies Bible Study & Moms’ Coffee – January 9 & 11
The ladies Bible study will resume this Tuesday at 10:15. Choose between the Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilken or Jesus the One and Only by Beth Moore. Also, a new encouragement group for moms will meet for the first time this Thursday from 9:30-11:30am. See bulletin flyers on Sunday to learn more, and sign up today at the table at the back of the sanctuary or on the City.

Young Adults – January 12
Young Adults will begin meeting again Fridays at 7:00pm staring on January 12 at the Thomas’ home in Round Hill. Reach out to Stuart or Anna Vermaak to learn more (blueridgeyoungadults@gmail.com).

Help Needed – Kids Check-in Team
Do you use the check-in system each week for your children? Please consider volunteering on an occasional rotation to help make this service possible. Contact Tom Abdoo at tom.abdoo@comcast.net or on the City.

You’re Invited: Town Groups on the City
This week, everyone who has a City account will receive an invitation to join a new Town Group. Will you please accept that invite as soon as you see it? We’re looking for churchwide participation! To better assist our elders in shepherding those who call BRBC home, we are restructuring several key groups on the City. Town Groups (in addition to your Life Group) will be the best way to stay connected to others in your area. Our current Region groups will be phased out by the end of this month. Don’t have a City account? Contact Brittany (brittany@brbible.org).
