Sabbath Rest
Our Lord reminds us that we need time to rest. Summer can be such a time. For students, it’s summer vacation. For families, it’s a time to travel. If you are away for the weekend, remember to find a place to worship. If you’re camping, bring your bible. We can give you the Sunday readings ahead of time so you can tune-in even when you are away.

Summer Sabbatical
I will be taking a ½ sabbatical this summer, July 4 – August 15. We have a great line up of pastors in my absence, so be sure to attend.

Vacation Bible School is July 22 – 26. See page 3 for additional information.
Invite a friend!

Tuesday Evenings
Do you want to read the whole bible?
Join me as we work our way through the scripture in 2 years. We will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00p Sept. 3 – Dec. 16. Then, Jan. 6 – May 27 with a break for Lent. Materials are $110 for 60 sessions ($2/class). This includes 6 manuals, 6 student books, and biblical timeline. Sign-up in the Fellowship Hall.

Greetings BFLC Family!
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’ -Isaiah 6:8

  • Pray for eyes to see how we can use our words, hands, and feet to bless those we encounter and serve
