Stay Connected and On Track This Summer

Summer is here with the arrival of blossoms, bugs and a bunch of ways to stay engaged at Buechel Park.

Our incredible staff has planned a series of children, youth and adult activities to keep you and your family active in the life of our community of faith. Check out the family movie night on June 2, work a day or two on Extreme Build mid-June, participate in the music and Bible Study at noon on Thursdays, and come engage your mind at the BPBC Book Study on June 25.

Starting Sunday, June 4 the youth will kick off our new series on the book of Acts with a powerful, worship service on Pentecost Sunday. Together through the months of June, July and August we will dive into the early church of Acts and what it means to be a Christ-Centered Community of Faith. You won’t want to miss a Sunday this summer.

My prayer for our church this summer is to learn and grow together united by the grace of God, the redemptive power of Jesus Christ and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Peace my friends,

Pastor Erica 



Family Movie Night: Friday, June 2 at 6 pm

The liturgical season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (March 1, 2017) and lasts until Holy Saturday (40 days).  During the season of Lent, many Christians observe a period of fasting, repentance, self-denial, moderation and spiritual discipline.  The purpose of Lent is to set aside a period of reflection on Jesus -his suffering and sacrifice.

 Worship services throughout Lent reflect this period of moderation byemphasizing prayer, contemplation, and reflection over traditional praise.  As such, a marked difference will be obvious in our worship.  Hymns, anthems, and special music will be more solemn in nature.  Doxologies and hymns of praise will be temporarily set aside. Preludes and offertories will be subdued and contemplative. The postlude will be replaced with a short, meditative instrumental song prior to the benediction to encourage personal prayer and reflection.

In preparation, take time to reflect and meditate on the words of two of our most beloved hymns - What Wondrous Love Is This (Hymn 171) and When I Survey the Wondrous Cross (Hymn 186).   We encourage you to prayerfully wander with us throughout the 40 days of Lent as we move toward the wonderment of Easter morning.
