Great Things celebration – September 8
This is your heads-up for a very special Sunday, as we close out our summer schedule! September 8, 11am-1:30pm, is when we will have this year’s Great Things service with worship and a ministry year-in-review. We want to pause to celebrate all God has done in and through BRBC this past year, and also commit the coming year to Him (11am-12pm). This year, we’re continuing the celebration with a catered BBQ lunch together, immediately following the service (12-1pm, $5/adult & $2/child). We’ll wrap everything up with a vote on leadership and how we’ll spend your money next year (1-1:30pm). We’re having only one service, at 11:00am. We’re telling you now so you can make every effort to be able to come! Watch for full details and RSVP info starting next week.

Sunday service volunteer highlight: Security Team
