BCC is structured to invest in relational discipleship. Our structure and approach is different from a traditional church Sunday school model or a church with a variety of specific organized ministries. Groups can be a Bible study but they are so much more to us.

We believe discipleship happens best in the context of relationships. This means that trust is built in Christ-centered community. Building trust and investing in deep, meaningful relationships should be prioritized by every believer. To be a church OF groups, we must live the value: "Relationships are our priority".

Our primary model for congregational care is within groups. This gives us the responsibility and opportunity to serve and care for one another. Our pastors are certainly available to our congregation during times of crisis but the best care you can get in life is from those who you have been doing life with.

In the sections below, you can learn more about the three types of groups we have and how they function. You do not have to be member to join one and you can be in multiple groups. In order to lead a group, we ask you
complete The Next Steps classes offered every Sunday morning.



Small Groups are where we gather in small settings of 10-12 people and study scripture together. These can be based on a sermon series, a book of the Bible or even a video based curriculum. These types of groups gather in people's homes or at the church building.

These groups often will have social activities within the context of the group or may even serve their community together.



Social Groups are where people gather around shared interests, hobbies or other activities. These groups are a fantastic way of inviting non-Christians to spend time with believers! These types of groups will often be someone's first experience connecting with people from our church.

These groups are often the easiest way to help others connect relationally at BCC.

Support Group Session



Support Groups are topic-specific groups to help people grow through challenges. These can be things like a marriage-specific group, financial management, a grief support group or parenting challenges. The intent is to help people know that they are not alone and in hearing others sharing their stories, it may help them grow in one of these areas.

These groups are a great way to find hope, healing and biblical solutions to life's challenges.
