This week MARCH 31 - APRIL 6, specifically, pray the following:

[Play Week] Faculty And Staff

  • Pray for the production of Mary Poppins this week, and all students and staff involved.

  • Pray that God would give wisdom and courage to our teaching staff as they guide the learning of the BCS students.

  • Pray that the faith of each staff member would be strengthened, and that they have opportunities to share their faith with their students.

  • Pray for the unity of the staff as they work together and model the community of Christ to our students.

  • Pray that the needs of our staff and their families would continue to be met as they serve at BCS.

  • Pray for wisdom in decision making for our administrative team: Phil Warner, Rebekah Klase, Ben Smither, and Beth Bromwell.


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.
