When Black and Brown lives are systemically devalued by society, our outrage justifiably insists that attention be focused on Black and Brown lives. When a church claims boldly "Black Lives Matter" at this moment, it chooses to show up intentionally against all given societal values of supremacy and superiority or common-sense complacency. By insisting on the intrinsic worth of all human beings, Jesus models for us how God loves justly, and how his disciples can love publicly in a world of inequality. We live out the love of God justly by publicly saying #BlackLivesMatter.
We need to continue to act with courage and commitment to end racial inequality. We are challenged to examine the ways racism is manifested within ourselves, our community, and confront it. We actively listen, challenge white fragility, and seek equality for all people. We stand in solidarity with the members of our community who routinely feel the weight of oppression, systemic racism, racial violence, and call for an equal justice system.
We have many opportunities for fellowship and learning outside of Sunday Worship!
You are welcome to join and explore any of our fellowship groups, Bible studies, or small groups that meet regularly.
Small Groups are held each year beginning in mid- October. We offer a variety of interesting topics and activities.
Lenten Lectures and studies are offered during Lent and coincide with a seasonal theme.
Brown Bag Bible Bunch is a Bible study open to all, held on Mondays at noon. It is led by our Senior Pastor, Anne Cubbage. Bring your lunch along to enjoy while we study and get to know each other.
Bagels & Bible is a men's Bible study held on Thursday mornings at 7:00 AM. Bagels and donuts are offered, as well as great company.
There are other great opportunities with Senior Fellowship, Baby Boomer Fellowship, and other lectures and fun activities throughout the year! There is always something going on at BCC, and we value what you bring to the table.
