ISAIAH CLASS

Isaiah tells us that God's word endures forever, speaking a message of comfort and challenge to hearers of its own time (sixth century B.C.), and memorable promises of messianic hope to every generation. Written 2600 years ago, it still has implication and application in the 21st century.

In literary style, Isaiah is called the "Shakespeare" of the prophets, and in theology he is the "St. Paul of the Old Testament." This marvelous manuscript has been regarded almost universally as by far the greatest and grandest treatise on the most important subject in the history of writing: Christ and His salvation. The book's significance and sheer eloquence simply cannot be overstated. The book of Isaiah was the only scroll found completely intact of all the Old Testament books discovered in the famous Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947. 

Join John Murtha on Sundays at 11:00am in Auburn Hall to explore the second half of this amazing book! No registration is required. Newcomer are welcome! Fellowship time for class members is held before the class begins.

JONI & FRIENDS RETREAT INFO MEETING

Are you looking to serve in a meaningful way this next year? Come to an informational meeting with Beth Golik and Libby Peterson as they share their experience with Joni & Friends Family Retreats and see if you want to join a team from Bay Pres to serve as short term missionaries (STMs) at an Ohio-based “Joni Camp” in June 2019.

STMs volunteer to serve families affected by disability with Christ-like encouragement and friendship. As an STM, you'll receive on-site training - no experience required!

There is nothing quite like a Joni & Friends Family Retreat. Families with special needs are cared for, encouraged and rejuvenated in a Christ-centered, fully accessible camp environment. Although you will be there to serve a family, we guarantee that you will be blessed (and transformed) through the experience.

Please come to the November 8th information session to learn more about this life-changing opportunity. We’ll meet from 7:00pm-8:00pm on Thursday, November 8th in rooms E200-202. Contact Beth Golik (440.871.3822x181) or Libby Peterson (440.871.3822x113) for more information.

FALL RESPITE EVENT (NOVEMBER 2)

As a church we host a free quarterly event that has made church more meaningful for families with special needs. It's called Respite, and it's a two and a half hour event (three hours for volunteers) that gives parents and caretakers a break from their everyday lives.

If you're a parent of a child with special needs and you want your child (and siblings) to attend the Fall Respite Event on Friday, November 2, click the attend button. Please note: each child needs their own registration form. You will have the opportunity to put your name on a waiting list if our guest registration fills up during the October 8-12 registration period. We look forward to welcoming you to Respite at BPC!

Our next event is Friday, November 2, and if you want to plug in and get involved in the
life of the church in a new way, click the button to serve.

For some parents Respite nights are the only date nights they get all year. This means so much to the families that come that we don't want you to miss your opportunity to get involved in giving someone a much needed break.

At Respite, kids spend time doing all sorts of activities and it takes volunteers to keep those activities going. That's where you come in. Whether you're a teenager or a retired adult, there is a long list of roles that you can fill ranging from specialist roles to first-time volunteers with no experience. Anybody can find a place to serve, including you.

Get in touch with Beth Golik with any questions. (440.871.3822x181)

HOW PEOPLE CHANGE WORKSHOP

Change in any situation is difficult, and yet God’s Word has so much to say about change.  Life’s ups and downs can cloud out our ability to see the goodness and mercy of God which comes to us expressly during those times.  What if the ups and downs of life were actually graces from God to make us more like His Son?

Over the course of this one-day workshop we will study the intricacies of the human heart and see the beauty of the gospel of Christ that transforms daily life in a real and tangible way.  In-depth biblical discipleship is about relationships, with God and with others.

Come early, coffee will be available at 8:00am, and lunch is included with the price of your registration.

MEN'S MINISTRY EVENT: GUEST SPEAKER NICO HILL

He grew up in a home where addictions, the occult, violence, betrayals, physical and mental abuse were normal. He began drinking at an early age to numb the pain and fill the hole in his heart, spirit and soul. He went on to become one of the pioneers of cage fighting, and fought in Russia and Brazil. He then went into acting and acted in over 30 action movies and a show on Spike TV. As his fame and finances grew his addiction to alcohol, became an addiction to pornography, sex, adrenaline, power, and lastly… a hard core addiction to crystal meth lasting roughly 15 years. David “Nico” was slammed into deaths door more than once, and he asked GOD to save him from the monster he had become. He had dropped down to 130 pounds, stuttered as he tried to speak while his hands shook uncontrollably. GOD pulled David “Nico” from the pig stye he was existing in and is using this man often referred to as‍‍‍ one that can reach the people that society has deemed unreachable. He has spoken in mens homes, prisons, detentions centers, churches of all denominations across the country, revivals, schools, TV and radio. He and his former ministry partner Holly were both chosen because of their incredible testimonies over coming the odds through GOD’s love, to be two of forty, included in Allsion Restagnos book, 40 Divine Miracles from Heaven on Amazon.

"The only reason I’m breathing is to bring souls into God’s kingdom. Salvations here on this earth and celebrations in Heaven."

This free event is Thursday, September 6th in the Fallout at 7:00pm. Contact Ryan Ripley for more information.
