Sunday Night Book Club
Readers unite, discuss and delight! Meets once per month.
Our book for October is The Hare with Amber Eyes, by Edmund de Waal. This book tells the story of five generations of the Ephrussis family and their valuable collection of valuable netsuke, tiny Japanese wood & ivory carvings. The story traces parallel stories of the nineteenth-century banker and art patron Charles Ephrussi and his family, documenting Ephrussi’s relationship with Marcel Proust and the impact of the Holocaust on his cosmopolitan family. Our next meeting will be October 22, 7 PM in Rm. 213.

Women’s Ministry
Continues to bless and encourage the women of BPC with weekend retreats, Saturday mini-retreats, brunches and inspiring guest speakers.
Here is the topic and information for the upcoming Women’s Ministry Mini-retreat:
Title: The Way of Grace
John 1:16. ” Out of his fullness we have all received grace upon grace.”
What does it look like to more fully experience the grace of God in our lives? Join speaker Laura Harbert and women of BPC as we look at Jesus’ grace-filled encounters with different people.
Some of the aspects of grace that we will look at together are: the grace of being seen, the grace of getting caught, and the grace of our unanswered questions. Hope you can join us for a nurturing time of great food, interesting conversation, and spiritual encouragement.
Date: Saturday, November 4
Where: BPC Fellowship Hall and Garden Room
Time: 9:00 ( arrival and check-in 8:45) to 11:30.
Childcare available with advanced reservation.
