Baptism celebration, visitor lunch, Backyard Bible Clubs + a testimony

This Sunday, we’ll commission and pray for our teens and families involved in Backyard Bible Clubs outreach next week!

Let’s continue to join together and be praying for our summer missions efforts at Camp Highroad, Backyard Bible Clubs, and Joni & Friends Camp! Need ideas? Check out prayer points here, or watch for the flyer in the bulletin on Sunday.

Visitor Connection Lunch – July 15
Are you new to BRBC within the past 6 months? Join the leadership at a special lunch to welcome you next Sunday! Details are July 15 at 12:30pm, downstairs in the quad classroom. We do need your help—please RSVP by today by emailing Brittany (" class="uc">), or by listing the names of those attending & contact info on a comment card (found in the back of the sanctuary chairs) and dropping it in the offering plate!

Baptism Pool Celebration – July 15 deadline
Our baptism services this year have been an awesome time of worship, testimonies, and fellowship. On Sunday, July 29 from 6:00-8:00pm come enjoy our annual churchwide Chill & Grill picnic at the Lovettsville pool, with the added celebration of baptism! If you or someone in your family would like to be baptized, please contact Brittany Paist no later than July 15 (" class="uc">) or complete the bulletin flyer this Sunday by checking the appropriate box and handing it in at the table under the logos in the sanctuary. Watch for more details coming soon for the picnic Chill & Grill portion, or see the City to RSVP.

How about serving in Children’s Ministry?
Our Children’s Ministry team needs you! We are blessed to have many children in our church family. We are also blessed to have numerous adults, singles, and youth who have stepped up to serve in this area. But we really need some more volunteers, especially beginning in the fall. Contact Regina Gossage (" class="uc">) to learn about the rotation for children’s ministry or about helping with Sunday School, and Bethany Johns (" class="uc">) to be placed on the nursery rotation schedule for either worship service.
