Having then gifts differing … let us use them” Romans 12:6 
Every part does its share…” Ephesians 4:16
 
We want to encourage and challenge each Christian to consider the spiritual gift(s) God has given them and how to employ them in our local church. Please speak to one of the Elders if you would like to discuss further.  
Here is a list of ideas and areas where you may be able to participate in service and partnership in the local church. We encourage you to discuss a ministry area with the contact listed or one of the Elders.

Panera Bread
Pick-up, bagging and set-up of the donated Panera bread is a blessing to many!

Bible Teaching
There are various possibilities for the use of a spiritual gift of teaching or exhortation. The pulpit or platform is only one of these possibilities. Teaching through writing, home studies, Sunday school and one-on-one ministry are just a few other possibilities for an exercise in Bible teaching.

Cleaning, Maintenance and Organization
Various on-going and one-time projects in and around BBC are opportunities to help keep the building presentable and comfortable as a service to the Lord’s people.
Contact: Andres Gonzalez, Veronika Renth and Jaime Gill
 
Hospitality
Ministering to saints at our local church, as well as guests, speakers and out of town visitors is a wonderful way to serve the Lord by serving His body.  Whether in your home or elsewhere it is our privilege and responsibility to serve one another in the realm of hosting and hospitality.
Contact: Nancy Bosworth
 
Visitation: Shut-ins / Sick
Many would like to be present with the Lord’s people yet cannot due to health or other limitations. Visiting, calling or sending cards are just some of the ways we can reach out to the shut-ins or sick.
Contact: Malcolm Skelton
 
Families with small children
We do not have a formal nursery program however we have many moms with young children that may appreciate ‘informal’ help with their children especially during meetings. We encourage the saints to keep this in mind as we seek to “bear one another’s burdens”.
Contact: Jessica Renth
 
Mentoring / Discipleship
Seeking out one or more younger (or older) saints to develop a discipleship relationship can be a true way to fulfill the great commission. We encourage the saints to meet together, read together, pray together.
Contact: Any of the Elders
 
Cards for saints in need
Obtain and circulate cards at BBC for struggling saints.
Contact: Susan Dupay
 
Missionary Contact
Corresponding with commended missionaries including our own is an excellent way to keep connected to the Lord’s work and workers. We encourage contact with and prayer for those missionaries serving in other areas.  We also encourage those in contact to share the needs and notes of encouragement from these workers with the assembly.
Contact: Calvin Fritchey
 
Marquis maintenance
Management of the sign in front of BBC is an ongoing labor and we trust a light to those passing by.
Contact: Andres Gonzalez
 
Door to Door Evangelism
Whether scheduled and formal or unscheduled and informal, visiting area homes to engage or even just leave Gospel literature is a wonderful way to “preach the Word.”
Contact: Any of the Elders
 
Door Greeters
Smiling faces and observant listeners can arrive to meetings early to meet and greet saints and visitors at the door.
Contact: Luke Hansford
 
Music Ministry
Coordinating songs, playing instruments and preparing PowerPoint slides are all necessary facets of our times of singing.
Contact: Andrew LeMasters
 
Men’s Prayer Breakfast
The Saturday morning mens prayer and fellowship breakfast is an encouraging time to share and pray with other brothers.
Contact: Aaron Renth
 
Soccer Ministry
The Monday evening soccer ministry is an evangelistic outreach to our community and beyond. Athletes can participate, engage, and help lead this ministry and prayer warriors can visit the field and pray for those playing!
Contact: Chris Miller
 
There are, no doubt, many other “works” going on in our local church. Please feel free to inquire about other ministries and also know that we welcome new ideas! The sky is the limit when serving the Lord in the local church!
