Should We Live Stream The Lord’s Supper?

Under normal circumstances most churches would quickly say, “No,” but under the current shutdown of our society this has become a much more relevant and debated question.  Though I wouldn’t criticize a church for doing this now, I do think the following article best describes our thinking as a church.  If this is a question you’ve had, I think you’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness of THIS ARTICLE… and I hope you will long for and savor the day we can once again dine at the Lord’s Table.  – PB


Irresistible Church Training

We are fortunate to have in our own backyard a special gathering of all kinds of Jesus folks who have room in their hearts for families affected by disability. It’s coming up in one month, on Friday night and Saturday morning, March 6 and 7 at Jacksonville Presbyterian Church. Hosted by Joni and Friends Oregon, it will include workshops, training, church networking, fellowship, and worship with like-minded leaders and volunteers. There is a special guest speaker, and there will be treats. As a church wanting to do right by our special-needs families, the more folks from BCC (and EVERYONE on the Disability Ministry Team) who attend, the better equipped we’ll be to fulfill the church’s mandate to reach the lost and hurting.
