Vision and Mission Afternoon Sunday August 20

Come and join us for our Vision & Mission Afternoon. We will gather from 2 pm – 6 pm to worship as a community and to pray, listen and discern what it is God is calling BCUC to be and do. There will be a special time for the children, so that they will be able to share their experiences and express their hopes for BCUC as their spiritual home. At 5:00 pm we will have a pizza tea so families can be home early enough to get ready for the school week. If you want to know more there is an article in Chats about our current Vision and Mission and there will be more preparatory information this Sunday for you to take home to read and prepare. The Pastor Mark Schultz has special gifts and experience in supporting communities to discern their vision and Mission and he will be leading us.
