This week MARCH 24 - MARCH 30, specifically, pray the following:

Families and Parents

  • Pray that God would strengthen each family represented at Berks, providing for our needs and growing us in faith.

  • Pray that God would grant wisdom to our parents in how to best guide and raise each child in the BCS family.

  • Pray for the needs of our families - those experiencing challenges, health complications, and job loss. Pray that our community would be aware of and address each other’s needs.


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.
