June 18 – September 3
Life is busy. This is not breaking news. Our lives are full of important
responsibilities: work that needs to be done, people to care for, bills to pay, homes to maintain, meetings at church, medical visits to attend, kids to visit in far off places, and a culture that always expects MORE. When time is of the essence, what can we do to integrate our faith meaningfully into our daily lives? Let’s start small. This summer our worship at BCMC will focus on a different “small” spiritual practice or idea each Sunday that is relevant to the here and now and connected to the roots of our faith. Come and join the conversation!
