Baby bottles for Mosaic VA – deadline June 16
It’s time to bring your bottles back! If you picked up a baby bottle to fill with change to benefit, please return it by June 16 at the latest! Please return any bottles—whether filled or empty—so they can be reused! We’re partner-ing with Mosaic Virginia Pregnancy Resource Center to help provide care and encouragement to mothers in crisis.

Praying together: Summer missions
This Sunday we’ll pray for and commission our short-term missions team heading to Brooklyn, New York City from June 9-16. Let’s also be praying together for others being SENT from us this summer to share the gospel: staff from our church family working at Camp Highroad, teens and families leading and hosting Backyard Bible Clubs, and our short-term team serving families with disabilities at Joni & Friends camp. Save the bulletin flyer on Sunday with specific prayer points as a reminder!
Laying up treasure in heaven
BRBC elder Bill Wilcox taught us from Matthew 6 that God always is and has more than we need. With this perspective, we can be encouraged to hold loosely our resources of time, finances, skills and even prayer life and offer them up to God for His use. Listen to “Laying Up Treasures.”
