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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610.565.1200
