Midweek Update

November 17, 2021


A Message from Jeff...


                                Are You Ready for this Sunday?


   During the month of November we're focusing on becoming "Rich Toward God." We've been challenged to pray, "Lord, how much would You have me give to You through Your work at BCC in 2022?" Let God guide you to a step of faith that will stretch you and forge a reliance on Him to provide.


   This Sunday, at the close of both worship services, we will be making our Faith Promise Commitments for 2022. You do not sign your name to the card. This is a personal matter between you and the Lord. I'm looking forward to an inspiring conclusion to a great morning as we walk forward with our cards in a collective act of worship.


   Those worshipping online or out of town this Sunday are invited to participate and mail in their 2022 Faith Promise Commitments (BCC, 1294 Columbus Ave., Batesville, IN 47006).







Current Message Series...


                                 "RICH TOWARD GOD"


    We'll study the example that Jesus gave about a man who wasn't wise with his wealth. Together we'll explore how to manage our resources for the greatest outcome.
