REV. DAVE CARPENTER

WELCOME LETTER FROM PASTOR DAVE
 
Dear Friends:
In these confusing and unsettling days we are finding that the comfort, strength and mercy of God’s Spirit is centering us in a way that helps us to stand up and face this moment with grace and resolve. Although we are not sure when we will be gathering in person again we have found that our on-line worship is surprisingly intimate, inspiring and effective at preparing us to keep putting one foot in front of the other and to serve our community and city in some exciting and surprising ways. We would love to invite you join us for our 10 am virtual worship on Facebook or the BPC website and to sign up here (info@bpcusa.org) for our weekly email with all our mission, fellowship and small group offerings.
Whatever your past spiritual or church experience, we want you to know there is a place for you here. At our church, you will not find a pretentious cadre of holier-than-thou, sanctified saints, but a motley crew of fellow strugglers simply doing their best to allow God to love and heal them so that they can go out and love and serve this precious world God created and adores.
Jesus said, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”
Discovering this full life, even in the midst of this pandemic, lies at the heart of our mission and passion.
We would love nothing more than to welcome you through our virtual doors, immerse you in worship, facilitate the exploration of your faith, and connect you to the community, so that you might discover your God-given calling in life; that place where your great passion intersects with God’s great need.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me! dave.carpenter@bpcusa.org
Love,
Dave
