40 DAYS WITH JESUS
Our journey through Lent this year will be simple and deep. We will walk with Jesus through the last week of his life, as portrayed in Luke 20-23 and relevant companion readings. We are each encouraged to fast in one way or another. We are each invited to take five minutes of silence to start each day, inviting the Lord to speak to us. We are each invited to read the day’s scripture and reflect on it by journaling, discussion and/or meditation. Thank about the meaning and intent of the passage. Think about its implications for you and others. (Free bibles are available at the church.) For verses and to participate, click here.
ONE DAY TO FEED THE WORLD
We will be participating in Convoy of Hope’s “One Day to Feed the World” again this year. This is a BRV tradition and it’s a real opportunity to turn one day’s wages into a force for good in the world. Convoy of Hope has consistently shown up to situations and parts of the world that need help quickly, whether they’re helping with food insecurity half way around the world, or putting boots on the ground here in America after a natural disaster, they are an organization that we endorse and support each year. We will be collecting for them as we always do on Easter Sunday. For more information about “One Day” and what Convoy of Hope do, click here.
QUIZZO FOR THE CARNALLS
Join us on Friday, March 24 at 7pm for a fun, raucous, good time for the whole family at the famous BRV Quizzo. We will have great quizzing, lots of laughs, Rich Kroll as an MC with all proceeds raised benefitting the Carnall family mission to Mexico. There will be prizes and a silent auction. Light refreshments will be served. $10 donation per person suggested. It really is a lot of fun so we hope to see you there!
FEEDING THE HUNGRY IN DELCO
BRV is helping serve a meal and hand out weekend meal kits to school children in Norwood on Friday April 21st from 5pm-7pm. All ages and abilities are welcome to help! Many children rely on school-provided meals, and Saint Stephen’s “Blessing Bags” are handed out to any child needing meals for the weekends. Anyone from any town can request these meal bags, no ID required, no questions asked. Saint Stephen’s also serves a Friday night meal while handing out the bags. BRV members will help pack Blessing Bags and serve the meal. Between now and April 16th BRV will also be collecting food items to pack in the “Blessing Bags”. Food items requested are Individual cereals, Chef Boyardee/Spaghetti O’s, Juice Boxes, Ritz Crackers, or Graham Crackers. Online Blessing Bag wishlists can also be found at Amazon and Target . For more information please see Katie or contact email@example.com
BRV’S PASSOVER SEDER
On Wednesday, April 5, 2023 at 6:00 pm, join with us at a Passover Seder at BRV. Passover is the Biblical Feast that celebrates God’s deliverance of His people from slavery and oppression in Egypt as recorded in the book of Exodus. It was a Passover Seder that Jesus was leading with His apostles that became His Last Supper before His death. The next day – in fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and symbolism about Passover – Jesus would become “The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” Our gathering will seek to enter in and experience Passover the way that Jesus and His disciples did during Holy Week. As a community we will share the sights, sounds, tastes and messages of God’s delivering power on behalf of His People.
Friday, April 7 – Good Friday Service – 7pm
Sunday, April 9 – Easter Services – 9 & 11am
BAPTISMS AND BABY DEDICATIONS
Would you like to get baptized or do you have a baby or young child you would like to dedicate to the Lord? We are holding baptisms on Sunday, April 16 and baby dedications the following Sunday, April 23. If you are interested, reach out to Pastor Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HELP KEEP OUR FOOD AND FUN BETWEEN SERVICES GOING?
Did you enjoy getting to know others in the church while enjoying refreshments and playing lawn games during the month of July? I (Amy) did! And one of the things I loved most about it was watching people I know from the church get to know one another. That’s why I love church – we get to be in relationships with one another! We get to be friends who support each other! We would LOVE to keep that going in the fall, but need your help to make it happen. If you’re interested, you can find out more and sign up here.
We would love for you to join us for our worship services. We meet at 9 AM and 11 AM at 425 West Front St. in Media PA. Masks and other best practices, click here.
Worship with us online at our 9AM service on YouTube. If you haven’t subscribed to our channel, you can do so here.
BRV Kids is meeting at the 9am service. Registration is no longer necessary. Any questions, email email@example.com.
LET’S PUT THE BRV KIDS TEAM TOGETHER
We are excited about our BRV Kids ministry! We definitely rely on your help to make it happen though. If you are 18+ and are able to spend a few hours a month having fun and sharing Jesus’s love with our kids, please reach out! We would love to have you on our team! If you’ve served in the past, it’s likely time to renew your clearances before you join in again – please contact Katie Ferry ASAP to begin the process.
INTERESTED IN STREAMING OUR SERVICE TO THE WORLD?
People across the country, and even around the world, are able to attend our worship services through our online service. This is an important part of what we do, and we need to expand the team that helps make it happen! We’re looking for people who can learn to operate a camera or run a soundboard and work with our team to produce services in-person AND online. If this is you, the first step is to come to have dinner and learn more. Join us on Wednesday, August 4 for dinner at 5:30pm and training from 6-8pm. Click here to register.
