Rise to the Challenge

30daychurchchallenge_300X250-2At the beginning of each year people challenge themselves in all sorts of ways. Resolutions are being made to eat healthier, to be better parents, to read a certain number of books a month, to make better choices about relationships, and the list goes on and on. As the new semester of K-Groups approaches, I’d like you to consider taking a challenge as a church.

The 30 Day Church Challenge is a “multi-tiered discipleship program.” This powerful campaign will challenge church members to:

  1. DEVOTE themselves to authentic community and learn that church is not a building you go to, but a family you belong to. (Acts 2:44)
  2. DEVELOP a worship lifestyle and discover a closer walk with God. (Acts 2:46-47)
  3. COMMIT to spiritual growth through Bible study and prayer. (Acts 2:42)
  4. EMBRACE stewardship and a generous lifestyle and learn to manage their God-given resources – time, talents, and treasures. (Acts 2:44-45; 4:32-35)
  5. ENGAGE in reaching out to others with the Gospel through theirs words, their love, and their life. (Acts 2:47)

SO! Who’s up for the challenge?

I WILL take the challenge.

Share Your SPIRITUAL Gift this Christmas!!

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

4 There are different kinds of gifts. But they are all given by the same Spirit.5 There are different ways to serve. But they all come from the same Lord.6 There are different ways to work. But the same God makes it possible for all of us to have all those different things. 7 The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all.

God has equipped you to serve His people!

Prayerfully consider using your gifts to minister to BCC by HOSTING or FACILITATING a K-Group in the coming semester. The new semester kicks off on January 11th with a large group gathering at BCC and a leader’s meeting.

A quote from PASTOR RICK WARREN:

“…You’ve also got to have a weekly small group. Nobody has a complete perspective on life. Every one of us has blinders on. The people in your small group can see things in your life you can’t see. That’s why we need each other! You learn from the people in your small group as you encourage each other and your roots go deeper” (emphasis added).

We are looking to introduce several NEW group options for connecting our church at the heart!

The Gift of Community

GiftGivingWhy wait until Christmas to start unwrapping gifts?

And DON’T wait until New Years to resolve to change!

BCC has the gift that keeps on giving!

All you have to do is receive it!

I’m talking about the gift of community!

Every week K-Groups meet, throughout Oklahoma City and Edmond, building community among the people of God right here at BCC! This semester is almost over, but you can still enjoy the gift.

On January 11th, 2015 we will begin our new semester of K-Groups. I STRONGLY encourage and invite you to JOIN A K-GROUP!! There are groups for ALL AGES! If you can’t find the “right” group to be a part of – maybe God is calling you to start a new one.

Think about this way, if for some odd reason BCC lost its building, it would not loose its impact in the community nor its influence upon the people of God! Because the church is meeting in people’s homes!

Acts 2 and Acts 4 remind us of the importance and value of a community of Believers who are committed to the call of God to be a light in the darkness spurring each other on to good works!

I’d LOVE for you to connect with us! Give yourself the gift of community! And, invite someone else to enjoy that gift with you!

If you are interested in JOINING A K-GROUP or you would like to START A NEW GROUP, please CONTACT: Tre’ Clark at (405) 521-7814 or by email: tre@brittonchurch.com!
