Community Life and Fellowship

This ministry arranges opportunities that nurture and deepen relationships among BBC Covenant Members, The congregation, and it’s extended community, creating a loving, caring community of believers who demonstrate the fruit of the spirit by loving Christ and each other, with friendliness, true concern and compassion.
