Attention Ladies!
All BRBC women (18 years & up) are encouraged to attend our last Coffee & Conversation before the summer break this coming Monday, May 23, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. We have a great time of fellowship and then discuss one of God’s attributes in groups of five or six ladies.

As a reminder, on Monday evening we are also including a “shower” for the church nursery. There are specific things that we need, so please check out the list here. Even if you can’t come to C&C on Monday, you can still participate in the shower by bringing your donated item to the nursery anytime.

Details for both are on The City in the Women’s Ministry group and in the bulletin flyer on Sunday, or you may contact our hostess Jan Murphy (madremurf@me.com or 540-338-2480).

Chapter 6 of Hebrews has some interesting challenges with interpretation but can especially impact us personally. Here’s the test of the reality our faith — Is there continuance and growth or is there just enough exposure to the gospel to be immunized by it? Here more on what “Diligence of Faith”  is or isn’t.
