An Inclusive Community Oriented Congregation in Burrillville
We, the fellowship of Berean Baptist Church, worship one God who is revealed and accessible to each and every one of us regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, social standing or all other abilities. All have been given the gift of accepting full participation in the Kingdom of God because God's grace, love, and mercy are given freely and unconditionally and extend to all people. Therefore, we accept, welcome and affirm all as brothers and sisters united in striving to live holy and acceptable lives in the service of God's Kingdom.
May our hearts as well as our church doors remain forever open and welcoming to all of God's creation.
Fall Sermon Series. - Reconnecting to Faith
Sunday Sept 11 - The Parable of the Sower - Wherever you are, whatever has happened, God is working to bring beauty, peace, love to you and through you to the world.
An honest exploration of the experiences that make us feel disconnected; from Jesus, from church, from faith
Sunday Sept 18 - The Emmaus Road - God walks with you, through every disappointment and doubt, because God is love. As Cleopas and his friend walk away from Jerusalem after the crucifixion... as they walk about from God... Jesus walks with them... and a new faith blossoms in them.
Sunday Sept 25 - Matt 18:10:25 - This Time its Personal
Sometimes the disconnect isn't busy or stressful lives, grief, or the challenges of faith. Sometimes the disconnect is personal. Jesus addresses the fact that at times we disappoint and hurt one another. God is present in our hurts empowering us to repair the damage done, enabling us to forgive ourselves and others, and so to move forward trusting in one another.

Mid-Week Bible Discussion
This week, on Thursday Sept 8, we will be hosting our weekly Bible Study 7:00 pm. You can gather with us in the church conference room or join us via zoom to share your thoughts, feelings and insights about the Scripture and sermon from the previous Sunday. We will be discussing Luke 14 where Jesus issues the strange demand that in order to be disciples, we must hate our family. Its a shocking and unsettling lesson. What does it mean.
Contact Pastor Darin, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not already on the mailing list or to receive the Zoom link.
