This Sunday, come to our monthly Membership Orientation at 9:30am in Room 104 to start the process to become a BRBC member or simply to learn more about BRBC!

Flock to France Fundraiser – Last chance!
Our congregation has seen a lot of flamingo fun these past two weeks! Join in and send a flock of flamingos to your neighbors or another BRBC family—and support our short-term missions service team to Normandy, France at the same time. Visit the table at the back of the sanctuary on Sunday, or consider simply making a donation toward the team via check or donate on the City. Follow the flamingo fun on the City at #FollowTheFlock.

Cross Training – August 19 or August 26
Cross training is our annual event where we desire for each person who calls BRBC home to get trained up for ministry to our church body! Pick either August 19 or 26, 5:30-7:30pm, and come for free dinner for the whole family, childcare, and training. Take a look at the bulletin flyer this Sunday or the City for info on different ministries!  RSVP using the flyer and drop it off at the table at the back of the sanctuary. Questions? Ask Pastor David or Brittany on Sunday at the back table.

Praying Together
Praise God for the Backyard Bible Clubs that 14 of our youth led and 8 of our families hosted last month! At least 99 children heard the gospel presented and were loved on in these clubs. Let’s continue to pray that God waters the seeds sown in their hearts and that their faith becomes their own (Matthew 13:18-23)!

He Taught Me: Helping Others Live Well
