All our classes welcome visitors!
Visit as many as you like to find the class that's right for you. 

 

CO-OP

ROOM 109 BMMC

The Co-Op is for any of us who feel the Spirit moving us to something new and different. The Co-Op is a place to ask the question “What’s next?” The Co-Op is for those who feel their faith expression is incomplete or lacks fulfillment, or for those who sense something deeper is waiting to be discovered.


Dialogue

Room 204

The Dialogue Sunday School class is a diverse group of adults of all ages who explore issues of personal spirituality in an informal and supportive setting. The dialogue is always open to new people and new ideas.


Folks

Room 105 BMMC

Each Sunday, we will discuss thoughts from the sermon and use one or two pieces of music to facilitate conversation to connect the dots between Biblical Christianity and the living out of our own stories. Come join a group of “regular folk” to listen to good music, drink a fantastic cup of coffee, and share good conversation about faith.


God's Lighthouse

Room 205

Class members of “God’s Lighthouse” want to share God’s Light in their families, communities, and world. They use the Smyth & Helwys’ Formation Series. They are ready to welcome anyone who wants to visit or join.


HAIKU

ROOM 106 BMMC

Every 2nd and 4th Sunday

LaMon Brown is leading a class about the value of writing haiku and the nuances of its form. We will learn how to use haiku to unite past and presence, to pay attention to our world, to examine the seasons of life, to pair with lectio divina, and to become a haiku community.


Helpers

Room 207

The Helpers class is made up of a small, loving group of “very special” adults who like to be busy learning and helping others! They love to hear and talk about their favorite Bible stories; share prayer concerns and do activities.


Peacemongers

Room 108 BMMC

The PeaceMongers welcomes all ages. The curriculum is generally the study of a book related to some biblically-based social justice issue, although no subject is off limits. The teaching style is one of discussion with class members facilitating.


Quasi-Quaker

ROOM 106 BMMC

Every 1st, 3rd, 5th Sunday

The focus of this class is spiritual growth through prayer, meditation and observing spiritual practices. Church and personal prayer concerns will be shared. A reading about prayer and meditation will be shared for discussion. Then members will observe silence for 30 minutes during which time members are invited to meditate, pray, read or write.


Seekers

Room 203

The Seekers class studies a passage of Scripture each week. Our age distribution gives us a deep well of accumulated experience from which to draw. We are not so concerned to arrive at final answers, but to help each other work on the important questions that we each face.


Young Adults

Room 104 BMMC

Every 2nd and 4th Sunday

The Young Adults class provides BCOC’s growing population of twenty- and thirty-somethings in student or career mode with a platform for asking “Who am I?” “Who is God?” And “Why do my answers to these questions matter?”


Youngsters

Room 114 BMMC

Don’t be confused. The Youngsters class is for any who feel young at heart. They use Smyth and Helwys literature as a guide for Bible study and always have a lively discussion on how to apply the lessons to everyday life.
