BRV SMALL GROUP  GATHERINGS

We consider small groups the heart of our church. Weekly small groups provide a safe space to belong and grow in faith. Connecting with others to pray, share our burdens, and look to God is more important than ever. All are welcome!

Summer groups meet on a varied schedule. Some meet in person,  others online, or a combination of both. To join a group, please contact the group leader directly, by using the email or phone number listed in the group description. If you’d like help finding a good fit, contact Amy Ross, pastor of small group ministry at amy@blueroutevineyard.com or call 610.565.1200.
