Small Groups


We consider small groups the heart of our church. Weekly small groups provide a safe space to belong and grow in faith.  Our groups gather at different times and places  (in-person/online)  so there are many options to find the right fit for you. All are welcome!

In every BRV SMALL GROUP, you can expect to engage in scripture, pray for one another, and enjoy meaningful friendships and shared life. If you have any questions, contact Mark Tindall at or call 610.565.1200

When you and your spouse are on the same path of marriage but in different places on your faith journey it’s good to get together with other women who share this experience. This is a topic, discussion, and prayer small group. Our discussions will center on scripture as we seek to grow in our faith and as partners in our marriages.

This group shares a rich history of meaningful discussion and camaraderie, and would love to add more to the mix. We begin and end on the dot (mostly). Our topic this fall will be the Gospel of Luke and the sermon from the previous weekend.

“Making and sharing Breads together”. There’s something very comforting and inviting about sharing warm breads together. Bread also has significant meanings in the Bible. Bread in the Old Testament symbolized God’s constant care and presence. Jesus calls himself the bread of life; physical, spiritual, and eternal life. This year, our small group will have fun exploring making breads from around the world. If you just want to come and taste the freshly baked breads with paring sauces, you are also welcome! We will worship, pray, fellowship together and discuss highlights from the book, The Art of Neighboring by Jay Pathak & Dave Runyon. ( No need to purchase material ) Please, contact Kyung Hee Baxter for more information.

All meetings will have Zoom available.  Every other week, there is an option of meeting in person at the church starting Sept. 28th. Come join us for fellowship, building community among women from all stages of life, and practical application of the bible.   Our first meeting is only through Zoom This Fall’s study is “Trustworthy: Overcoming Our Greatest Struggles to Trust God” by Lysa TerKeukrst.  This is a study of the major kings from 1 Kings and 2 Kings.  From 1Kings and 2Kings we learn, “No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try.”

Name the easiest and tastiest of meals. Easy, right? Pizza. Every week we will serve pizza in the lobby for anyone to snag before our meeting. Grab a slice and a chat in the lobby, while skipping dinner prep. Not bad. Then, we’ll dig into the Gospel of Luke, picking up on the previous weekend’s sermons. We also pray for each other, waiting to see what God will do. Group ends at 8 so Mark can get to bed on time.

We are a kinship group located in South Jersey and we couldn’t be more excited to have a BRV presence in the Garden State.  For the fall semester, we will study Dallas Willard’s book, The Divine Conspiracy.  Here is a description of the book:  “The Divine Conspiracy calls us into a more authentic faith and offers a practical plan by which we can become Christ-like. It challenges us to step aside from the politics and pieties of contemporary Christian practice and inspires us to reject the all too common lukewarm faith of our times by embracing the true meaning of Christian discipleship”.  All are welcome to join us.

If you are interested in joining a group where its members ardently seek after God through heartfelt, passionate praise; varied spiritual practices; the study of Scripture; and partnering in prayer with the Holy Spirit, this may be the group for you. With God’s help, we engage in community marked by humility; authenticity; transparency; honest sharing; and Divine love and care. God has helped us to create a safe environment where people feel open to share their struggles and be met with empathy; truth; grace; love; non-judgment; and the mercy of God
