The mission of Life Groups is best captured in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” Living in the transforming love of Christ requires community, and Life Groups serve as our congregation’s way of making sure everyone is known and included at BPC.
The format of Life Groups is very simple: every Sunday, at the end of the worship service, the congregation of BPC breaks into smaller groups of 10-15 people to go to a home or restaurant to share a meal. There is no agenda or curriculum; instead, Life Groups are intended to provide a small community of friends to come alongside individuals as they walk through the daily challenges of life.
Discovery Groups provide a weekly opportunity for people to be exposed to and reminded of the truths of God’s Word in a small group environment. It is the desire of BPC that Discovery Groups live out Proverbs 27:17 which states, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
