Go deeper with a life group + Daily grace

Remember to plan ahead and stay after the 2nd service this Sunday if you are interested in learning more about the short-term trip to Mexico this summer. More details are below.

Life Groups begin again this week. Are you being encouraged as you consistently share life with fellow believers? If not, coming to a Life Group is one key way to start down that path! See details below. 

Mexico Mission Trip – Info Meeting on Sunday
Are you interested in helping at an English language camp to bless students and their parents? Come to an info meeting in the library on Sunday at 12:30pm. Knowledge of Spanish is not necessary, but any craft/music/VBS experience is helpful. Cooking and cleaning help will also be needed. Trip dates are June 26-July 2. Contact Jon Garber at to learn more.

Spring Life Group Session – Week of March 19
With the renewal of spring, renew your commitment to better connect with your church family and to be encouraged and grow! See the current Life groups and contact info.

“The Great I Am” Women’s Retreat – March 24 & 25
Ladies, this Sunday is the final day to register for the retreat next weekend! This year’s theme is “The Great I Am,” runs Friday 6:00-9:00pm and Saturday 9:00am-5:00pm, and will feature testimonies and teaching from our very own BRBC ladies. See the full schedule on the City. Complete the form in the bulletin on Sunday and pay $30 at the table at the back of the sanctuary to register.

Baptism on Easter Sunday – April 16
Our April baptism is scheduled for April 16, when we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection! If you or someone in your family wants to participate in it or future baptisms, email Brittany (). Parents, we have an excellent workbook that helps kids understand the meaning of baptism. Contact Regina Gossage () to get a book and learn more about the process.

Our Benediction: Grace
Closing out our study of Hebrews, Pastor Jack taught that exhortations are a form of God’s grace to us. Hebrews 13:20-25 highlights two final exhortations from the book’s author: keep moving forward in our faith, and remember that we are not alone! Listen to “Our Benediction: Grace.”
