Welcome to the BCC Blog!

Welcome to the BCC Blog! 
On a beautiful day like today, it's easy to marvel at God's wonderful creation. But God's greatest and most glorious creation isn't the beautiful blue sky or the new spring blooms; it's His heavenly and eternal plan to reach His children.  The greatest power on Earth and in Heaven is God's personal passion for you and His desire for a relationship with you. 

"After Jesus said this, He looked toward heaven and prayed: Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify You. For You granted Him authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those You have given Him. Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." - John 17:1-3

The God of the universe desires an intimate relationship with us. His love is deep and wild, fierce and furious. He pursues us with a passion unlike any we've ever experienced anywhere else. 

"Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you." - James 4:8

Let this steadfast promise fill you today, and draw near to the God who pours out endless and unceasing love upon His children everyday.

What is God Teaching You During Transformational Prayer: 7:14?
Last thursday, March 1st, we started a journey together into the next stage of our transformation circled around 2 Chronicles 7:14. Here's the challenge: our whole congregation, bowing together before God at 7:14 a.m every morning from our individual homes or work places, sending our prayers up to an eagerly listening God. It's not about the specific time per se; it's about developing the habit of prayer and humility before the Lord on a daily basis. Here's the next piece: We want to hear from you about what God is teaching you and revealing to you during this journey! Share your stories with Todd at todd@brevardcommunity.org so we can see firsthand how God is working in our congregation. 
If you want to be a part of this 7:14 journey, and have not yet signed up for the morning emails, contact Breanna at breanna@brevardcommunity.org
