Ladies, special retreat extension! See an update Hilary and the retreat committee posted about a special extension to turn in your registration! You can still come! The retreat is March 9-11 at White Sulphur Springs Conference Center and is a special time of fellowship, refreshment, and teaching opportunity. The committee shares that they are still working to meet their minimum number of 62 ladies; currently 49 women have signed up. More details here or visit the table at the back of the sanctuary on Sunday.
Membership Orientation & Celebration – March 4
Do you consider BRBC your church home? You’re invited 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. Already been to the class? Let Brittany know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re close to finishing the self-paced City material and join us March 4 to celebrate your new membership!
What is the City?
Just a reminder that the City is how we’ve chosen to communicate as a church body: we use this online community to share prayer requests, needs, and events with one another, our Life Groups use it, and the church leadership uses it to keep you better informed with what is happening. There are many ways to be involved at BRBC—get more in the know and engage with all of us by joining the City! Learn more at brbible.org/the-city/. Contact Brittany to join or ask questions (email@example.com).
We praise God for the baptisms that took place last Sunday evening: Tessa Albert, Lulu Albert, Carter Dowden, Danny George, Sammy George, Angie Holloman, Anna Kasianides, Adalyn Mehl, and Clayton Stocker. Pray that these individuals—and all of us—would continue to walk in the Lord Jesus Christ just as we received him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as we were taught, abounding in thanksgiving (Col 2:6-7).
Continuing in “Discipleship of the Heart,” Pastor Jack preached from Titus 2:11-15. Living by grace is the understanding that God is going to give us what we need for each moment. Listen to “Grace Life.”
