Q: What time are services?
A: There are two services every Sunday at 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM.
There is only ONE Sunday Service on New Year’s Eve, Sunday, December 31, 2017. ** Holiday schedules vary so please check for Holiday schedules. 
Q: How long are the services?
A: The 8:00 AM service runs approximately 1 hour. The 10:30 AM service is about 1 hour 15 minutes. 
Q: How early should I get to church on Sunday?
A: We encourage everyone to come 15 minutes early – especially, if it’s your first time, as parking and navigating the campus will be new to you.

Q: What if I have kids? Is there a kids’ service?
A: If you have children, any usher can direct you to the appropriate classroom.
You can also get more information on child care and as to what is happening in the Children’s Ministry here. If you have a teenager or young adult, check out our youth programs at our Youth Ministry here. 
Q: What should I wear to church? Is there a strict dress code?
A: It is up to you to decide what to wear. While there is no formal dress code, it is probably not a good idea to wear gym clothes to church. The average style of dress is casual and informal, but people have been known to dress up from time to time for the holidays. Think of a seaside brunch or dinner attire. Just don’t show up wearing smelly sweats. 
Q: What if I need prayer? Who do I speak with?
A: If you’d like someone to pray with you, or you are experiencing any hardship or difficulty – please let us know. You can write a note on the Connection Card found in the pew pocket, approach the pastors, or click on Connect/Care & Prayer and fill out the prayer request form.  
Q: Where can I get more information? 
A: Our Welcome Center (table), can be found in the Sanctuary Lobby (Narthex) after services. It is staffed to welcome and support all visitors. Our Welcome team of greeters and ushers are happy to answer any of your questions, so please feel free to take any of the handouts or other informational brochures and materials. If you have any questions during the week, the BPC office is open Monday – Thursday from 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM and Fridays 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
