‘Tis the Season

Christmas season is again upon us and we are looking forward to celebrating God’s gift for us and understanding what it means for us not only with God, but with one another.  We will have many chances to celebrate together this December.  Saturday December 1st (5:30 pm) we will have a special dinner, enjoy the children putting on a Christmas program, and shower one of our missionaries (Keith Jewett) with gifts.
After one more week of Swimming in the Desert, we will start our Christmas Series, “Gift Exchange” where we’ll see a real switch.
Part 1-A Poor Start
Part 2-The Substitute King
Part 3-Christmas Spirit
Christmas Eve-The Opposite of Religion.
Also coming up with be our choir’s Christmas cantata (details to follow).
We’ve also started a special Christmas series in our weekly podcast/Radio Show, The Corner of Truth & Life.
So join us, follow us, and together we will learn, grow, and celebrate the greatest gift mankind has ever known!

Do you know Love?

Our world is very short on love these days.  Loneliness, feelings of isolation, hatred & anger, and blame all fill our lives and social spaces.  The Bible says that God is love and that God loves us.  Why do we feel so bad if this is true?  What does it mean in real life, and day to day?  So we will spend five weeks seeking to learn and understand what it means, and how in a world so lacking in love, how we can thrive in love.  Or in other words, how to go Swimming in the Desert.  We hope you will join us Sunday Mornings at 8 AM or 10:30 AM.

i am…… (Summer Series)


We are excited to begin our summer series, “i am.”   We tend to think of sins as big bad things we do, and while that is true, our issues are much bigger.  We struggle with “falling short” every day in small ways too.  How do we deal with the tough moments of live and the different things that go wrong in our life?  This series will look at these issues and the role GRACE plays in the solution.  We’d love to have you join us on Sundays at 8 AM or 1o AM.

GriefShare

Stay tuned for the next group startup dates

GriefShare is a 13 week, Christ-centered biblical based support group.   Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent.  Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines.  You will find encouragement, comfort ad help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member or friend. You will also find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an oasis on your long journey through grief.  There is a fee for the workbook of $15 ( Assistance is available if help is needed).

FMI: contact the church office 645-2925 or email at church@beanscorner.org

Joyful Giving

The BCBC Care Ministry is introducing a new way to minister to individuals/families in need.  It is called “Joyful Giving” and this is how it will work.   We ask that you donate gift cards from Wal-Mart, Big Lots , Hannaford, Save-a-Lot, cash or check with ”Joyful Giving” on the memo line or envelope.  Put them in the offering plate or give them to Mary Wolfe. Thank you for helping to bless someone in need.    Let’s put God’s love on display and spread joy this holiday season! (You can also give online)

Christmas Series

We are excited to announce our Christmas series that will begin with the first Sunday of Advent on December 3rd.  Whether they are candles or electric lights, we celebrate the coming of the Light of the World with many lights in this season.  Even those who do not know of His coming still put many lights on display.

We will look at the meaning, implication, and application of the original Christmas Light.  The series will culminate with a special Christmas Eve Service on December 24th at 6pm.    We hope you will join us all month.
