Urgent Need: The City Mission

The City Mission has an urgent need! It is as easy as picking up the lunches at 1:00 pm on Monday - Friday and transporting them downtown to the kitchen staff!

The Mission has opened our gymnasium on Main Campus to women and children that have nowhere else to go.  

You may know that Laura’s Home has been full for over 4 years and we operate off of a waiting list, but now – EVERY shelter in Cleveland is at capacity and there are many families with nowhere to go. This past week we had between 40 – 50 women sleeping at our gym each night.  

So we’re providing somewhere for them to go, but also dinner and then breakfast! Because school just started back, I was given a unique donation from a local school (located at 150th and Puritas) – leftover lunches! Therefore, I’ve been picking up daily and taking the meals downtown to Crossroads where they are refrigerated and then warmed for dinner for the families. The new opportunity is just that – picking up the lunches at 1:00 pm on Monday thru Friday and transporting them downtown to the kitchen staff! The whole process can take less than an hour! I’d like to create a monthly schedule so you could do this as often as you’re comfortable with.

Interested volunteers please contact Jaime Buxton at The City Mission 216.431.3510 X317

Here’s a link from a recent news story about our Overflow situation.

Fall Respite Event

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.

ATTEND: 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 3, sign up for the waiting list here until October 27.

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 2-27 registration period.

We look forward to welcoming you to Respite @ BPC!

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.

SERVE: Our next event is Friday, November 3, and if you want to plug in and get involved in the life of the church in a new way, register with the button below before October 27.

Scion Tree - Adoption Luncheon

We are all adopted sons and daughters of God because of the sacrifice of his only son, Jesus Christ. This IS the gospel story – that God desired us, pursued us, and made us His own. Only through His love and grace can we call Him, “Abba, Father.”

We invite you to join families of BPC that experience the miracle of adoption every day to share your hearts, stories, and His calling for us all through the celebration of Orphan Sunday.

Scion Tree is an independent non-profit organization, formed by members of the BPC family, that serves as an advocacy and financial support group for families pursuing adoption.  Please join them for a free lunch in Auburn Hall to share the joy of adoption and to explore God’s calling on all of us to live the Gospel by supporting His children.

CARE for AIDS Packing Event

Be part of an amazing program that is not just keeping AIDS patients alive, but helps them live healthy lives...allowing them to raise their children, work, and be part of their community.

Join us at Bay High School on Saturday, November 18th to pack 100,000 (yes, that is right, 100,000) meals for the clients of CARE for AIDS in Nairobi, Kenya. We will need 600 volunteers to work an approximately 1.5 hour shift to get the job done! 

CARE for AIDS has centers throughout East Africa. Each center has two counselors who guide a class of 80 clients at a time through a nine-month program. Throughout the program these clients experience transformation in five key areas; physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual. Find out more by visiting

One way YOU can be a part of this process is to help package meals that supplement CFA clients...leading to better nutrition which leads to medication working better and making clients stronger.
