BDC Small Groups
We are so excited to offer Small Groups at the Dream Center! BDC Groups are small groups of 5-7 people that meet throughout the week in homes or at BDC to build friendships, learn the Bible, and grow spiritually. BDC Groups are a great way to connect and get to know people at BDC while cultivating a strong relationship with God. We encourage everyone to join a Small Group!
New Semesters begin in January, May & September.
Our FALL TRIMESTER will begin the week of September 16th- November 16th!

Who are BDC Small Groups for?
Whether you’re brand-new to the Berkshire Dream Center Church or have been coming for years, a BDC Group is a great next step for anyone who wants to grow in their relationship with God, learn new truths in the Bible and develop new friendships.
What is a typical meeting like?
Each BDC group is unique, but generally all groups have some social time with snacks and conversation up front, followed by a time of study and prayer.
These weekly meetings run about 60-90 minutes in length.
Why should I join a BDC Small Group?
- You’ll meet new friends in this city that will encourage you. (Proverbs 27:17)
- Weekly Bible study will help you grow in your faith. (Psalm 119:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
- Prayer from others helps you get through the tough times. (Philippians 4:6; 1 John 5:14-15).
- You’ll have fun with other people going through the same things you are. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
How often do Groups meet?
Groups usually meet once per week for a semester of usually 10 – 12 weeks.
What about childcare?
Each individual group is responsible for deciding how to handle childcare needs.
Some options are:
+ Group members make their own child care arrangements
+ Group members share child care costs and arrange for a sitter to tend to the kids in a different room while the group’s in session.
+ Group members take turns watching the kids each week.
Can I host and/or facilitate a BDC Group?
We are always looking for additional people to facilitate a small group and/or individuals to open their homes to host a Small Group.
One of the exciting components of BDC Groups are small groups meetings in homes. The only requirements we ask is that you have been coming to BDC for a minimum of three months, have been a Group member in a BDC Group at least once during a calendar year, and have made a faith commitment to follow Jesus.
How much space is necessary to host and/or facilitate a BDC Group in my home?
All you need is a room large enough to accommodate around 5- 7 people, a TV and DVD player.
If you have any further questions, please feel to call us at 413-522-3495.
