This Sunday, we welcome Mike Richardson, our long-time missionary! Please stay after the 2nd service for a potluck in the quad to hear about what God is doing through he and his family in Mexico. Bring a main dish for 10 AND a salad or dessert.

Baskets of Blessings – deadline April 29
This month’s Kingdom Calling churchwide outreach is a way to connect with the hearts of unsaved moms in our midst. Request a basket to give to an unsaved mom by completing the flyer in the bulletin this Sunday (or see the info on the City and respond). Another key way to participate is to commit to pray for one of the unsaved moms who will receive a basket – you will be emailed 1 prayer request the week of May 6 to pray intentionally.

Baby Dedication – deadline April 29
Sign up now to participate in a child dedication on Mother’s Day, May 13. Contact Brittany (brittany@brbible.org) by the end of today, April 29.

Women’s Coffee & Conversation – April 30
Ladies, remember to RSVP for the Coffee & Conversation this Monday evening at Jan Murphy’s home. This is open to all BRBC women 16 years & above. Get closer with old friends and make new friends as we enjoy an evening of fellowship and discussing God’s Word together! You can also RSVP Sunday at the table at the back of the sanctuary. 

Membership Orientation & Celebration – May 6
Do you consider BRBC your church home? Then come to our next orientation at 9:30am in Room 104 to get started on the membership process, or just come to learn more about BRBC! Already been to the class? Let Brittany know (brittany@brbible.org) if you’re close to finishing the self-paced City material and join us May 6 to celebrate your new membership!

BRBC Worship Security Team
Did you know that our church has a security team and a policy concerning weapons on the premises? We do! Our team is comprised of both armed and unarmed volunteers. Team members who carry a concealed weapon on BRBC premises must meet three criteria: they must be a church member, an active law enforcement officer or a Virginia concealed carry permit holder, and they must have been authorized to carry by BRBC leadership. Virginia law requires that all three criteria are met. For concerns or questions regarding the BRBC weapons policy, contact elder Alan Bigler (alanbigler1@gmail.com). Should you have a desire to join our Security ministry, contact Michael Horner (hornermd@gmail.com).

God’s Heart for the Lost
Continuing in “Discipleship of the Heart,” Pastor Jack preached from Luke 15 and taught how Jesus’ parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son reveal God’s heart to want not even one person to remain separated from Himself! Listen to “God’s Heart for the Lost.
