What are Life Groups?


Deepen Relationships

We desire to deepen our relationships across our Christian community in order to offer and receive the encouragement and strength we need to continue to grow in our faith; praying for one another and taking on each other’s burdens.

Serving Relationships

We desire to change our communities by being the light of this world through our actions and words throughout the community. Meeting the needs of others and building relationships outside the Body of Christ for the sake of the gospel.


Meaningful Relationships

We desire everyone at BCC to be connected in meaningful relationships that produce continued spiritual growth and effectively change the world around them.


Growing Relationships

We desire to grow by moving forward rather than staying stagnant; always identifying the next step and taking it. We grow through in-depth Bible study gaining knowledge of who God is and who we are in Christ so that we might experience Him in this life. Each person takes responsibility to become a self-feeder.
