Get Connected With BVBC
Soon after your first visit to Bow Valley Baptist, you will hear about our Connection Groups. These are smaller communities of people who gather to connect with God and with each other. All of our groups are different. Most meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00am but some also meet at different times on different days during the week. We also have Connection Groups for youth and children.
As soon as you hang out with us for a short time, you will find that most weeks are full of other opportunities for our people to serve, grow, and connect.
God intends for us to have an abundant and joyful life so we value being together and have a great time while we gather. Throughout the year, we plan a variety of events intended to help us all on our journey with Christ and each other.
Men, women, married, single, parents…we have a place for you to learn, serve, and grow and we have a lot of fun along the way. If you are interested in more information on any of these groups please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
SUNDAYS AT 9:00am
Bible for Life
The Bible is a book unlike any other – the very words of God himself. It is love letter to his children – an epic history of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. We will gather together in community around Scripture to connect to God, connect to one another, and serve others.
Leader: Barry Nelson
If you consider yourself to be a senior adult or you just like hanging out with those who are more seasoned with life, this group is for you.

Women on Adventure
This group is for women who wish to share and grow together through the unpredictable journey that comes when we invite God fully into everything we do. This semester, we will be going through the Daniel Plan. We will be meeting with the men that are going through it as well, and then breaking into smaller groups with just the women.

Pastors Connect Four
Pastor Gary leads people through four “stand alone’ classes on what it looks like to Connect with and at Bow Valley. Jump in any time to this class, and get connected. If you’re new or just feel the need to connect more, this is a great class to meet people, hear more about Bow Valley and find a place to connect and serve at BV.
Leaders: Pastor Gary and Dan & Melanie Morgan
Splash The Living Water
What does it mean to spread the gospel? If we aren’t called to be missionaries in another country, did Jesus really intend the commission for us all? We all have relationships whether big or small, with people who come from a different faith or who don’t know or who just haven’t come to a place of accepting Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
Leader: Kristi Hill & Sue Smith
