We come from all walks of life. We learn from one another and share with one another a variety of faith, social, and political perspectives. We treasure the rich diversity of our members and friends!
We like to think of our church as a place where you can grow and serve: Grow in spiritually, grow with your family, grow in grace, grow and serve as we gather for worship and education, service and fellowship.

Travel with Adam Hamilton as he retraces the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Read The Way on your own or, for a more in-depth study, enjoy it with a small group or part of a 40-day church-wide emphasis during Lent.
Using historical information, archaeological data, and stories of the faith, Hamilton follows in the footsteps of Jesus from his baptism to the temptations to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought.
The focus of our Sunday worship services will coordinate with the small group discussions.
March 5: Baptism and Temptation – The Jordan River and the Wilderness
March 12: The Healing Ministry – Capernaum
March 19: Proclaiming the Kingdom – The Mountains
March 26: Calming the Storm – The Sea of Galilee
April 2: Sinners, Outcasts, and the Poor – Samaria
April 9: Palm Sunday: The Final Week – Jerusalem
ADULT SMALL GROUPS
Now is the perfect time to join a small group and delve deeper into the themes presented during worship. Each short DVD segment was filmed in the Holy Land. The gospel comes to life as we move from the Judean wilderness to the Galilean hills and into the heart of Jerusalem.
Discussion groups will be offered at church on Sunday mornings, Sunday afternoons, Wednesday evenings, and Thursday mornings. Sign up for a group on the board in the Church Office foyer. The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus study book offers a weekly reading based on biblical study and guided personal reflection. Books will be on sale for $15.00 each.
BE OUR GUEST
Coming to church for the first time may feel a bit intimidating if you are unfamiliar with worship. At Bon Air Presbyterian Church, we want you to know that most of us have had a “first Sunday” experience and we really want yours to be as warm and inviting as possible. We will do our best to help you feel welcome and experience the presence of our living and loving God. Come and join us on a journey of life in faith together.
Style of Worship
We pray, we sing, we listen to the word of God as it is spoken and sung by our choir and gifted soloists. Check out previous sermon texts and recordings which are available on this website. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper (communion) on the first Sunday of each month.
Children are Welcome
We provide our youngest members with warm and nurturing care by staff and church members in our nursery during both worship hours as well as during the education hour. Children are an integral part of our church family and are welcomed participants in worship.
Prayer is important to us
We welcome requests for particular joys or concerns to be included in the Prayers of the People during worship. Please write your request on a Prayer Request Card and give it to an usher prior to the service.
Sunday school and adult education
Each Sunday, education programs are offered to all ages.
Coffee with the Pastor
Are you a visitor or a new resident of our community? Our pastor would love to welcome you and answer any questions you may have about our church. Coffee with the Pastor is offered quarterly on Sunday mornings to anyone who is interested. However, individual conversations and meetings over coffee are encouraged and may be set up by contacting the church office.

Join us on Sunday, March 5 at 5:00 p.m. for a candlelight Taize Prayer Service in our sanctuary. This will be a time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate your being as we are blessed during this quiet time of centering ourselves, lifting up prayers for ourselves and others, and lighting commemorative candles. Steve Henley and Barbara Gregory will provide musical accompaniment
As we journey through the season of Lent, we will explore the Prayer of Examen. This prayer is a gentle and thoughtful prayer practice that allows you to reflect on how God is involved in your life. God is always with us, but we are more or less aware. The Prayer of Examen encourages you to be more aware of God’s presence, by examining the details of your day. Everyone is welcome to join us.
