Be Rich
This year for our Christmas initiative we have a some opportunities for you to care for others. Through December 31, we are collecting funds for the children's home in Sierra Leone to improve safety and security. The total cost of the project is estimated at $26,174. This wall will help protect the children by preventing unwanted trespassing and theft.

If you feel God leading you to give financially towards this initiative, you can give to the Be Rich fund online, via text to 434-290-4483 (using BERICH and the monetary amount, for example BERICH100) or you may write a check, putting Be Rich on the memo line.

At New London we are supporting Our Daily Bread by collecting essential items (hats, gloves, socks, protein bars & granola bars, reusable water bottles, baby wipes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, & deodorant) for 300 shoeboxes. Please consider donating any of these items. With your help, we can provide useful gifts and necessities to those in need. Items should be dropped off in the atrium next Sunday by noon. Your generosity will make such a difference to someone!

We are supporting the Christmas Station, which is right here in Bedford! We're collecting gently used and new coats in all sizes for them to give out. Coats should be dropped off in the atrium next Sunday by noon.

They also want to put together 300 hygiene kits, which cost $7.50 each, so we will be collecting funds for those through next Sunday as well.
Worship Night
Don’t forget you can join us in the youth service room at New London this Friday at 6:30pm, for a night of prayer and worship. Let's come together for an evening focused on our amazing God!
Everyone faces tough times, but you don't have to go through them alone. Lifeline is here to provide one-to-one spiritual care, support, and encouragement in a safe and confidential manner. Our caregivers will listen and share God's love with you when you feel hurt, grieved, confused, or angry. Let Lifeline be there for you with compassionate support.
Groups are intended to bring us together to experience authentic discipleship and life-giving community. Each group has its own focus, centered on biblically based content, working toward our greater mission of helping people follow Jesus. We have groups for couples, women, men, singles, seniors, moms & those still in college.
Care Ministries
If you're having a difficult time right now, we invite you to consider one of our Care Ministries. You can connect with a Lifeline caregiver or get plugged into a Care Group such as GriefShare, DivorceCare, MoneyWorks: Making Change or Proven Men. We would be honored for the opportunity to walk beside you.
Serving Opportunities
At Blue Ridge we believe that serving is not only an appropriate response to God, it is also an avenue to encounter Him in new ways and experience spiritual growth. When you are answering God's calling to serve, He equips and fills you. When you serve it's much more than pouring out what's been poured into you, it's a way to move closer to God.


For those of you who call Blue Ridge home, we encourage you to continue to worship through giving. There are severals ways this can be done.(1) Use one of our giving boxes as you leave the auditorium. (2) Give online at (3) Text NL for New London, or BD for Bedford, and the monetary amount to (434) 290-4483 (For example NL100 or BD100).
