Because church doesn’t just happen on Sundays…
We believe a small community is the best environment to connect and experience the kind of life Jesus has called us to, a life of both belonging and purpose. Home groups provide relational connections that are hard to build in large Sunday gatherings. They provide believers the ability to function fruitfully in discipleship and mission the way the early church did. As people experience living their lives on mission, new needs are discovered and new groups form.
What defines a home group?
- Home groups are smaller subsets of our church body. These groups gather together in various locations, in Christian community, to support a network of people with things in common.
- A home group is like a family! They eat together, study God’s Word, celebrate and worship together, do service projects together, disciple one another, and pray for and support each other.
- Home groups live intentionally: They focus up to connect UP with the Father, work together to grow IN the body of Christ, and reach OUT into our broken world, joining Jesus wherever He is already at work.
- Home groups are intended to be low-maintenance, simple, flexible and reproducible.
- Home groups operate independent of Sunday gatherings and church-wide activities, but their leaders are volunteers accountable to BCC staff and lay leadership.
Ways to get involved and join a home group:
- Contact the group leaders directly, using the information found here or on the slot board at the church welcome center.
- Contact one of the staff or the church office.
