Winter Study: “Finding I AM” with Lysa TerKeurst
What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this in-depth study, in conjunction with “Mission 119”, we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.
Teacher: Stacy Sassaman & Jenn Bretch

Small Groups at BRAC – Frequently Asked Questions

Groups are encouraged to meet at a minimum of every other week.

15-30 min. of socializing & announcements, 45-60 min. of discussion, 15 min. of prayer.
What is the administrative structure of a Small Group?
Small Groups include a leader, possibly an apprentice leader, and a host home. Small Group Leaders report to the Small Group Coordinator or Pastor.
What is the duration of a typical Small Group?
Anyone who wants to join a Small Group commits on a semester by semester basis. At the end of every semester, individuals can choose to exit the group or find a new group. (1st semester = September – December. 2nd semester = January – June). A Small Group can continue meeting for as long as it would like.

Beartown Road Alliance Church considers it a blessing to offer care and discipleship to all the children of the families that enter our doors. During our two Sunday Morning Services we offer both Infant and Toddler Nurseries, 3-Year-Old Preschool, as well as an exciting and Christ-centered Children’s Church program for 4-year-olds through 5th graders. The children participate in a variety of activities including worship through singing, Bible teaching, activities, and global outreach. The Infant Nursery is in the main Church Building area while toddlers (ages 1 & 2) through 5th graders meet in the Gym area.
All children ages 4 – 5th Grade are using the D6 2Generation Curriculum from Randall House. D6 is a wonderful Bible based curriculum based on Deuteronomy 6:4-7, with great Bible Lessons, Activities and take home devotionals that reinforce the lessons taught in Children’s Church.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
We are blessed to have faithful and dedicated volunteers who serve the children at BRAC by teaching and helping with our various ministries. All volunteers have completed an application, had a background check as well as personal reference checks.
Global Outreach at BRAC is an important ministry!
Every year at BRAC, we hold an annual Global Outreach Week to celebrate and learn about the many outreaches around the world. During GO Family Night, the two International Workers speaking at BRAC during that week tell us more about their field, all while the church family enjoys each other’s company.
