At BBC, “Fellowship” means being connected within the context of our lives. In a world that is growing more and more autonomous from each other, it is the desire of our church to be a place of connection and a place of help in times of need. These connections begin at church on Sunday often times, but hopefully move into the weekly and often daily rhythms of life. Our Fellowship and Care Ministries take on the task of providing opportunities to connect and to serve one another through various events and services.
The Fellowship Ministry team works to provide opportunities for connection within our church as well as services to our community through events such as Trunk or Treat, Sports Events, Banquets, Baby Showers, Camping Trips, Retreats and a host of other activities. This team is also involved in the decorating needs of the church for special seasons, occasions and events. The Fellowship Ministry works with all demographics and age groups within our church from Senior Citizens to the youngest attendees. They have a vision to encourage our church by creating opportunities for connection from within as well as opportunities to invite others to connect outside of the walls of a church.
The Care Ministry team are the hands and feet of Jesus to our church body. They work to connect our church with opportunities to help with individual needs such as meals and/or special needs after the birth of a baby or surgery, and sometimes just a little extra help when life hits hard. The Care Ministry works closely with the Deacons to assess specific physical needs within the body and they work to connect people within the body to meet those needs. The Bible is clear that we are to seek to meet people’s needs to the best of our ability (Acts3-4), and it is the heartbeat of this ministry that we would see some of those physical needs met for the glory of God and as a testimony to the Lord.
The care ministry also serves as coordinators for food for Fellowships at the church such as funerals, potlucks, the Cafe and other social events.
We believe that our gathering on Sunday as believers should be a time of worship and sanctuary. It is our desire that those who attend our gathering would sing and speak the truth of who our great God is: collectively thanking Him for His person, His presence and His provision in our lives.
Worship is best expressed through adoration and action and this is manifested both through the individual believer in how they live their lives Monday-Saturday and corporately on Sunday mornings. Our desire for corporate worship is that it would inspire and instruct adoration and action in all of life. This can be through music, liturgy, tithes and offerings, partaking of the Lord’s Supper together through repentance of sin, and rejoicing over what Christ has done for us through His Son. We believe worship in the church should be a diverse expression of every person represented in our church body. The word “church” in the Bible comes from a greek word, “Ekklesia”, and communicates the idea of an eclectic or diverse group. Therefore, all we do in music and in our worship service should reflect the expression of our diverse body with the goal of declaring God’s glory. We encourage our children to be apart of our worship service as a way to encourage our youngest worshipers that we believe they play a role in offering collective repentance, praise and thanks. We include differing styles of music in our services, and believe that music should be enriching, encouraging and mutually beneficial to the body.
It is our goal as we lead people to reflect on the gospel and the goodness of God that we would create sanctuary.
Sanctuary is a place where something is protected or given shelter. It is our prayer that our corporate gathering on Sunday would encourage our congregants to leave the distractions of their daily burdens and focus on Christ: a place where we can confess our sins without fear and remember the gifts of His grace, His Atonement and His forgiveness.
At BBC, it is our aim to teach the whole Bible with one purpose in mind; namely to see the big story of the good news of Jesus within all 66 books. Our Sunday services utilize expository (verse by verse) study. Our pastoral team is committed to see the Word of God taught rightly, understood deeply and practiced fully. They believe that it is the truth and redemption of the Bible that will impact every area of our lives as individuals and families.
LifeGroups break down our Sunday sermons into “bite sized” pieces for application. Life groups are the heart of our church in many ways as they encourage community and a deep connection through the study of God’s word and through the ministry of prayer and mutual edification.
Life groups provide much more of a connection than what you might receive on a Sunday morning alone. They are made up of men and women of all ages, middle school, high school and young adults. They meet twice a month in various locations and times.
