This week MARCH 10 - MARCH 16, specifically, pray the following:

Growth in School Connections (Strategic Goal #3)

  • Pray for our board members: Chad Zerbe, Corrie Mast, Cheryl Follweiler, Kristin Lutz, Andrew Eichelberger, and Dr. Paige Brookins.

  • Pray for wisdom and unity for our school leaders as the focus on stewarding our mission, our strategic vision and planning, and the resources to fund the mission of BCS.

  • Pray for the search for new board trustees and advisory council members to be fruitful. We currently have five open seats on the school board and five open seats on the advisory council.

  • Pray for our newly formed Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Pray that many parents would get involved and that positive involvement can result from this group.

  • Pray for our local churches and for strong connections to grow between our school and these churches.

  • Pray for continued increased enrollment in our student body. Pray that families would be emboldened to share BCS with their friends and families.


A big thank you to all of the parents, friends, and family who donated items, helped prepare for the sale, spread the word, and worked the sale on Saturday! We saw a good turnout, felt a willing spirit among the helpers, and had a surprising revenue for our first sale. We are eager to allocate these funds for various projects and gifts to benefit our teachers! It was also our privilege to donate many gently used books to our teachers for their classrooms.

Our next meeting will be at 6:30 on Monday, April 8th.

Attention all moms, grandmoms, or spiritual moms of BCS students - you are invited to join us for any of our upcoming Moms in Prayer meetings, all held in the BCS music room. We will be meeting the second Saturday of each month, from 8-9 AM.

The dates for the rest of this year are:
Saturday April 13, 8-9 AM
Saturday May 11, 8-9 AM

Any questions, contact Carrie Warner, carrie.warner@gmail.com.
