Discipleship Communities

The purpose of discipleship community groups is to have a forum for people to connect, share a meal, share each others’ burdens, pray for one another, grow in Christ, and discuss biblical issues throughout the week. These groups take place throughout the week (including Sunday mornings) -- at homes, the church building, coffee shops....anywhere, really -- and are open to all. 

For specific info on how to get involved or visit one of these discipleship communities, email Pastor Jeremiah: jeremiah@browncorners.org

  • Topic: Discipleship Explored

    Discipleship Explored helps followers of Jesus turn up the gospel soundtrack to their lives. It goes beyond simply teaching the right moves - go to church, pray, read the Bible, share the gospel - and focuses on the music which drives discipleship: the love of Christ. The greatest love anyone can ever know.

    Topic: Growing with your Kids

    At BCC, we want your child’s Sunday morning lesson to be a starting point for a comprehensive study of the Bible. What we do here is only a small part of their spiritual formation. The deep stuff happens at home. Our goal in this class is to help you go deeper so that you feel confident having those faith conversations with your children.

  • Men's Class

    Topic: Old Paths, New power

    With all our sleek ministry models, it's a wonder our church are declining --until we read Acts 6:4, "But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word."  

    "Old Paths, New Power: reviving Our Churches through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word" calls us back to the tried-and-true: pray and proclaim the word.   

    Henderson, who leads a growing church revival ministry, guides you through the essentials of sparking a spiritual renaissance:

    1. Be a leader who walks with the Lord

    2. Develop a strong prayer culture in your life and ministry

    3. Preach with unction, dependence, and integrity

    4. Equip every saint for the work of the ministry

    5. Embrace the sufficiency of the gospel

    Our churches don't need fresh models and fancy things; they need the Holy Spirit, and He rains down when we pray and proclaim the word.  Join us as we study Old Paths, New Power and follow God's master plan.  Books are $5.00

  • Women's Class

    Topic: A Study in the book of 2nd Timothy

    After Paul's release from prison in Rome in a.d. 62 and after his fourth missionary journey, during which he wrote 1 Timothy and Thus. Paul was again imprisoned under Emperor Nero c. 66-67.  It was during this time that he wrote 2 Timothy.  In contrast to his first imprisonment, when he lived in a "rented house", he now languished in a cold dungeon, chained like a common criminal.  His friends even had a hard time finding out where he was being kept.  Paul knew that his work was done and that his life was nearly at an end.

  • Topic: The Holy Spriit

    A class lead by Herb Bowers inviting men and women to learn more about the Holy Spirit (The third person of the Trinity).

    Objective: With the help and grace of God our goal for this class will be –

    To develop a more comprehensive understanding of what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit (We will use the Bible as our primary Text but also use other resources (authors) where helpful)

    Learn about the Holy Spirit’s involvement in the world and within every believer

    Realize more fully the wonder of God being a part of us through His Holy Spirit

    Take a closer look at how we can tune in to the Spirit of God within us for living the “abundant life” Jesus came to give us

    Use the gifts and graces bestowed upon us as believers for worship, work, and service for Christ

    To be involved in being transformed and empowered for the advancement of the Kingdom of God and to know that each of us has a vital part to play that is unique to you

    Be blessed by our Father in Heaven as we learn together, pray for one another, and share with each other our joys and concerns

    Join us for an exciting adventure with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as we study His Word, Share with one another as the people of God, and Minister to one another deeply through Scripture and the guidance and power of God within each of us as the power and presence of God’s Holy Spirit enables us.

  • 50 Core truths of the christian faith

    What this study is about: Christian doctrine must be confessed by the church, taught from generation to generation, and applied to daily life. In this volume theologian Gregg Allison unpacks fifty key doctrines of the Christian faith in a clear, engaging way and provides guidance for how to accurately teach them. He also explains how each doctrine connects to daily life, because he believes that Christian doctrine is not only true belief but also true practice.

    This is an indispensable resource for anyone who desires to form believers in sound doctrine and transform lives for the glory of God.
