Sunday Service Online

Welcome to our online worship service.  We have a service that runs live at 8:30am and 11:00am every Sunday morning
that allows participants to interact by chat with one another as you worship together.
Join those events at  http://batesvillechristian.online.church

We hope all of this is a blessing to you as we are not able to gather together in this season of social distancing.
We are thankful for the technology to get to experience these things together even when we can't physically be together.
You may also watch the service below at any point this week.

This Week's Announcements

At-Risk Ministry
During this pandemic, a special ministry team has been created to help those who are especially at risk and need to be rigorous in maintaining their social distance. We know that several of you are more homebound than others and that some things, like going to the grocery store for essentials, could put you at great risk. If you fall into this category of at-risk individuals, we encourage you to reach out to our At-Risk Ministry Coordinator, Debbie Mullins, who will then connect you with one of our volunteers. You can contact Debbie by email or at 812-363-4857. Thank you, Debbie and volunteers!

NEEDS and SERVING OPPORTUNITIES SURVEY
If you have specific needs, would be willing to help with meeting needs, or just have general comments for us as we keep moving forward during this time, we would love to hear from you in this brief form that you can access here.

High School and College Graduate Recognition
This is a tough time to be graduating and we want to make space for recognizing what an amazing and special achievement this is, particularly during such an uncertain and tumultuous season. If you have a high school or college graduate that has been a regular attender or member of BCC, then please submit the following information to the church office: Name; Current School; Future Plans, and; Senior Photo (if available). Please email all information to the church office at admin@batesvillechristianchurch.org by Friday, May 8th.

We Are The Jelly Church For Summer Food Program
Once again, BCC will be providing 300 jars of jelly for the Batesville Summer Food Program. To reduce risk of exposure, we will be purchasing the jelly from Kroger for $700. If you would like to give toward this project, please note your gift as “Jelly Church”.  

If your family might benefit from this program here is more information: The Summer Food Program provides food to students of Batesville schools during the summer months. This program is open to ALL students. Each Wednesday during summer break, children between the ages of 2 and 18 years old will receive a bag of food. The hours of distribution will be between 12 and 4 PM, June 3 through July 29, at the Batesville United Methodist Church, 106 S Park Ave, Batesville. To sign your child(ren) up for the Summer Food Program, fill out the online form by April 21st.

Seeking BCC History
This October marks BCC’s 50th Anniversary and we are sending out the call for any historical items you may have in your archives — photos, bulletins, directories, stories, and more — that you are willing to loan or donate to the church for our upcoming celebration of this notable milestone. Items may be dropped off in the church office. Please indicate whether you would like your items returned to you.

12th Annual Men’s Golf Trip HAS BEEN MODIFIED
Because of current social distancing conditions and the uncertainty of what 30 day from now might look like, the decision has been made to modify this trip and not travel to Tennessee this year.  Instead, we will be establishing some local golf outings when we can resume being together to support some courses in our area and hopefully allow more to participate by staying close to home.

This week's prayer requests can be found here.

We count it an honor and privilege to partner with you in what God is doing in your story.  If you would like to share a prayer request or a praise, we would encourage you to do so here.
