Consider connecting with a Stephen Minister

Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. A Stephen Minister walks alongside someone in need, through one-on-one conversations.

BPC has a whole team of trained lay people who are here for you: Just talk with Pastor Meg or Kay Taylor ( about getting connected.

This is also the time of year when we begin recruiting new potential Stephen Ministers; we offer a training program in January. If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, please begin to prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this ministry. Applications are in the church office, and they are due Sunday, December 10. Any
questions? Contact Kay (see above).
