BCMC during COVID-19

Update on Mask Wearing at BCMC
Due to the updated  Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and the very low level of COVID transmission in Harvey County, the Reopening Church Task Force recommends mask wearing at BCMC be optional based on personal preference, until further notice.

We will continue to watch the number of COVID cases in our community and remain vigilant of our collective health needs. We ask that you be ready to mask again at BCMC, if COVID rates and CDC guidelines so indicate.  Meanwhile, individuals should make decisions about masking based on their preference and level of risk.  Masks will continue to be available at church entrances for those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask in indoor settings.

Thank you for continuing to care for one another.

  • For those who wish to worship virtually, the worship service can be accessed at 9:30 am CDT by clicking the button below. You can watch this service any time after 9:30 am CDT through the same link.
