12 Neighbours Study • Wednesday, Feb. 5
The 12 Neighbors Study asks the most important question of our time, “what does it really mean to love your neighbor?” The goal is to create a movement of people who are inspired and educated to love their neighbors like never before. This 7-part film series was created so that people may gather together as a group, watch the films, discuss appropriate action in their own communities, and then take action together as a group. These films will challenge your perspective on poverty, marginalization, and effecting real change.
Please join Pastor Steve Wednesday evening, February 5, 2020 in the Family Room at 6:30 pm. All are welcome.
Becoming a Welcoming Church • Sunday, Feb. 16
There are so many things that I believe we do well at BSBC. And one of them was being a welcoming group. I still believe that in many ways this is true and there is intent behind it, but a recent reading of Tom Rainer’s book Becoming a Welcoming Church blew my mind in terms of the ways we can “up our game” in areas that you and I may never have thought were part of a “welcome” to those new (and even ‘old’) to BSBC.
So, I’d like to take some Sunday nights in February and March, and have others who want to see BSBC be as welcoming as possible, join me for a review of this material and discussion about possible implications for improving first experiences for visitors who we hope will become members of both the saved of the ages and this Body of Christ.
Due to the three Sundays of cancellations, we will now start on Sunday, February 16, 6:30 pm in the Family Room. Copies of the Rainer book will be available at the Connections Center for the cost of $10. Come join the discussion and let’s consider how to remove roadblocks to the gospel and fellowship! Believe me, I’ve learned it’s about more than shaking hands!
Ladies of BSBC we’re planning another bi-annual banquet in your honour. Invite your female friends to join us for A NIGHT WITH THE BEACH BOYS on Saturday, February 22 (please note the change in date due to cancellations) starting at 6pm. A lovely meal, great service and EXCEPTIONAL entertainment create an evening of laughter and mayhem you’ll be talking about all Sunday long! Tickets are on sale at the church office for $10.
Gents, as you can see from the note above, I’ve invited about 175 women to dinner on Saturday, February 22 (please note change of date due to cancellations) and I could use a “little” help. There are so many ways to serve: in the kitchen, set-up, serving, program and clean-up. It’s a great night to get to know other guys from our church family and have a lot of fun. AND you get to wear shorts, a T-shirt and sandals in February. Please email the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 458-8348 to sign up. I’ll be in touch with details. THANKS!
Couples Connection Sunday School Class
Alyse Wilton invites you to join our Couples Connection Sunday School class, which meets at 9:50 a.m. in the Family Room! Most weeks a married couple from our congregation shares significant moments from their marriage, and the impact their faith has had. This term, about once a month, we’ll be studying “You and Me Forever” by Francis and Lisa Chan starting on January 19th with a video covering the introduction and first chapter of the book.
If you are interested in this study and would like to read ahead, you will be able to find a few copies of the book in our Church library. Please promptly read and return them so that others can read along before the next study week.
Meet the Family
Denise Mersereau invites you to join her in the Family Room on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., to get to know a member of our church family who will share their “story” of life and faith. All are welcome to attend.
