“Death died when Jesus rose.” As we prepare our hearts this Easter week, here is a great article from The Gospel Coalition reminding us how Jesus’ resurrection changes everything! (The title says it’s on church planting, but really it’s a great reminder on the impact of the resurrection.)

Tomorrow evening, join us at 7:00pm to reflect on Christ’s sacrifice. On Easter Sunday, we will celebrate His resurrection with identical 9:30am and 11:00am services (no Sunday School).

Baptism Service & Celebration – deadline Sunday
Our last baptism service was an awesome time of worship, testimonies, and ice cream fellowship! Mark your calendars for the next one on Sunday, April 22, 6:30pm. To participate, email Brittany (brittany@brbible.org) or Regina for a kid’s workbook (gossagefam@aol.com). April 1 is the deadline to sign up or to have your child complete the baptism book.

Life Group Spring Session – April 8
With the renewal of spring, renew your commitment to better connect with your church family and to be encouraged and grow! Life groups will resume the week of April. See a current group list here or in the bulletin flyer on Sunday.

Membership Orientation & Celebration – April 8
Do you consider BRBC your church home? Then come to our next orientation at 9:30am in Room 104 to get started on the membership process, or just come to learn more about BRBC!

Gospel Project Resumes April 8
Join us on Sunday, April 8 during the 9:30am hour, when Gospel Project classes resume for all ages. Go deeper into Scripture, learn how passages point to Jesus and His redemptive work, and how to disciple those in your life who are younger! This spring session covers Jesus’ resurrection through the arrival of the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual Gifts
Continuing in “Discipleship of the Heart,” Pastor Jack covered 7 frequently asked questions about spiritual gifts and taught that when our gifts are used by the Spirit, we are satisfied, others are edified, and God is glorified. Listen to “Spiritual Gifts.
