Thursday Nights

BCM gathers at UCF on Thursdays every week for a time of praise and worship and a message from God’s word. After the message, community groups meet for a short time of discussion and prayer. Afterward, groups of students go out to eat, hang out, or meet up on campus for an epic game of wiffleball!

Community Groups

Community is a huge part of the college experience. We at BCM want to allow all our members to have that experience. Community groups are smaller groups within BCM that meet regularly throughout the week. The goal of the groups is to allow students to have a solid group of friends dedicated to building them up, enjoying life together, and encouraging them to start and/or go deeper in their relationship with Jesus. There are a variety of groups available to try out. You can read more about each group and receive details on how to sign up below.  

Bethany, Daniel, and Isaac


Monday @ 6 pm

Hello! Along with the regular Thursday night discussions, our group is meeting to do an Old Testament study. We are discussing prophets, priests, kings, and judges and relating them back to how Christ is the perfect version of all four. We will also get into apologetics every now and then, and we’ll be having game nights! Facts about the leaders of this group: Daniel’s obsessed with personality tests, Isaac’s obsessed with tech, and Bethany’s obsessed with folkloric vampires.

Emily and Brandon


Monday @ 7 pm

Howdy! We’re Emily and Brandon! We’re excited to meet together this semester for some bible study, fellowship, and community. We aim to glorify the Lord in all we do, and believe in encouraging and building each other up as we pursue that goal. We’d love to have you join us as we grow in studying scripture, discover ways to better discuss and defend our convictions, and help each other live a life pleasing to God!

Leah and Kaitlyn


Tuesday @ 6 pm

Looking for your UCF family? Look no further! We’re a co-ed group focused on building relationships with each other and furthering our relationships with God through Christ-centered community. We will meet weekly on Tuesdays and alternate between Bible studies and fun activities to hang out and get to know each other. I (Leah) am a junior majoring in social work with an interest in victim advocacy and I’ve been walking with the Lord for 13 years and I’m so excited to grow even more with our new group members. I (Kaitlyn) am a nursing major and also in my third year at UCF. I took my faith seriously starting the summer before 6th grade, and now I’m blessed to be serving Christ with you all!

Megan, Lizzie, and Jordan


Tuesday @ 7 pm

Hey, we’re Megan, Lizzie, and Jordan! Who are we? Well, we are students, people, but most importantly, followers of Christ. We love to seek out God in all aspects of our life. Where He has been, what He’s been doing, and how we can see Him through each other. These are questions we always ask and love to figure out. Jordan loves to look back and see how much God has loved him throughout his life and how God continues to do so every day. Megan loves people and getting to know new faces. Her favorite worship song is “Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me.” Lizzie loves to worship God through music and nature, and she finds stability in immersing herself in her community. In addition to all this, we’re a group who loves to have fun, spend some time in the word, and just grow as a church family. We look forward to inviting anyone along with us in our explorations.

Abby and Zacharias


Wednesday @ 7:30 pm

We’re Abby and Zacharias! Here are some fun facts about each of us. Abby: “My favorite thing is cooking for my friends or anyone that’s hungry.” Zacharias: “I enjoy unicycling and keeping up with the MCU.” Our goal is bring people together for accountability and intentionality in our walk with Christ. This fall we will be going through the book of Job, to greater understand the justice of God even within our trials. We believe we were made to do life together and hope you’ll join us this semester!

Joey and Anna


Saturday @ 1 pm

We are a group of Christ-followers looking to help others with their walk with Christ. Our goal is to have good discussions, pray together, and study God’s word as a group. We love to hang out, play games, and other fun stuff. Hope you’ll join us this semester!

Katie, Laura, and Sofia

Girls Group

Sunday @ 6 pm

Come join our community group at the BCM’s girls house (aka The Abode)! We hope to provide a cozy, friendly environment of fellowship as we discuss and learn about our God. We’re Katie, Laura, and Sofia. We love baking, Disney, and hanging out with you! We’d love to see you soon!

James, John, and Oswaldo (Ozzie)

Guys Group

Sunday @ 7 pm

Hey! We are James, John and Ozzie. We are the guys group who will be going through the book of James together. Our primary goal is to grow in the Lord together as brothers in Christ seeking to build each other up.
