Each fall and spring, BFC offers weekly classes and groups where you can learn, deepen your faith, and become more like Jesus in various dimensions of your life.  We call them “electives” because you have choices. Elective sessions focus on Bible teaching, discussion with others, and the application of God’s truth to one’s life. Typically, an elective is 8 to 10 weeks in length, depending on the type of class or group.

Spring Groups

Becoming like Jesus is our passion. We know it won’t happen in isolation. At BFC, being with one another in community is one of our six key practices. Jesus practiced group life; it’s the model we follow.

Family is important to us, and we are here to support yours in every season. This spring, we have the following classes set-up for
your family:
