Service Times



Highlights

  • Scripture Preparation for Sunday's Message
    Read James 5:19-20 in preparation for Sunday's message.
  • The Importance of Community: James 5:19-20
    People, on their own, tend to turn from, not to, the Truth. That is why community is vitally important to the Christian life. We need each other! We need people in our lives to hold us accountable & to remind us of the truth. Otherwise, we will be prone to wander and do our own thing. God gave us one another through the Church to help each other grow.
  • VBS 2019!
    VBS "The Incredible Race" is only a few short weeks away! It will be held August 5th-9th from 6 pm-8 pm and is open to children ages 4-5th grade.

  • Book Corner: A Steadfast Heart by Elyse Fitzpatrick
    Although never our personal choice, it is frequently God's plan that His children walk through storms and difficulties. Using the picture presented in Psalm 57, discover the secret of experiencing God's presence and comfort in trial and grow in your appreciation of His purpose in your life.
  • Missionary of the Month: Think Like Christ Ministries & Solid Rock Camp
    Solid Rock Camp is a Christian camp that is operated by Nate Day as part of Think Like Christ Ministries. Think Like Christ also puts on an annual youth conference here at BRBC. The goal of TLC & SRC is to reach as many people as possible with the Gospel and teach God's truth to the next generation.

    We are so thankful for God's goodness that He shows to us over and over again. He is so faithful to provide all that we need even when we forget to ask!
    Solid Rock Christian Camp
    Due to outgrowing our original camp space, we are not having camp this summer. God has been good in providing a potential space, but we are in the waiting for all the details to finalize. Please pray for us that this is where God would allow us to continue our camp ministry, and if not that He would open another door for us. We are excited to see God provide and look forward to having camp next year, Lord willing.
    Youth Conference
    We are excited to be preparing for our upcoming youth conference in late September. Please be praying for all the prep work that goes into putting on an effective conference.
    Think Like Christ Ministries is also hosting an outreach concert in September. Please pray for all the planning and promoting of this concert so that it is well attended and the Gospel is shared!
