Weekly Announcements

Here are some announcements both for opportunities within our church, and in our community.
This Sunday we’ll enjoy lunch after the 2nd service.  If you’re able, please bring a large side dish to go with pizza.  Also, don’t miss out on the fun by participating in our Kids Kookie Kontest.
Communion: This Sunday we’ll serve communion twice – at the end of each sermon.  If you (or your children) go to Sunday School during the 2nd service then you’ll want to attend the 1st service for communion.  Also, because we believe the preaching of God’s Word is most beneficial (for both young and old) we’d suggest attending the 1st service if you do go to a class during 2nd service.  Communion will continue to be served twice a month (1st and 3rd Sundays), and to give more people an opportunity to partake, we will serve it (3rd Sundays only) after each sermon.  On the 1st Sunday of the month, we’ll keep to our regular practice of serving communion during the singing in the 2nd service.  Please feel free to reply to this e-mail with any input or questions about this change.
Small Groups: There are several opportunities for you to connect and grow at BCC.  Check out our list various small groups for men, women, and teens.
