The cost is $80.00 per bouquet.
 
 

SERVICE OF GRIEF & GRATITUDE

Sunday, July 11, 3:00 PM

 
The past year has brought challenges, heartache and tragedy to each of us and to our world. We have have been through an intense time of grieving. And, in the midst of it all, we have found gifts, however small, that have surprised us. How many times in the past 15 months have you heard someone say (or you said it yourself) some variation of: “This is really hard, and I have a lot to be grateful for.” We have a lot of practice “holding” both of these feelings together and it has not been easy. As we move out of isolation, anxiety and turmoil, it is It is important that we process as a community what we have all been through together.
 

 

ANGELS ON WHEELS

 
 
Every once in a while, we need a helping hand – an errand run, prescription picked up, assistance with grocery shopping, perhaps a ride to church or a doctor appointment. Two existing ministries — Deacons Transportation Ministry and Errand Angels — recently merged to become Angels on Wheels. These angels, wearing the skin of BPC members, will do their best to step up and lend that helping hand. If you need an angel’s assistance, you can contact Pastor Lora at lora.east@bpcusa.org  or Mary Garbesi, Director of Congregational Care, at Mary.Garbesi@bpcusa.org. And if you’d like to join the Angels on Wheels team, we’d welcome that, too!
