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.
Welcome Our New Intern
I am grateful to spend time with you as a Union Presbyterian Seminary Christian Education intern, with a focus on adult education. I am a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary (MDIV), Emmanuel School of Religion (MAR), and Milligan College (BS). A minister of Word & Sacrament, I am a member of Whitewater Valley Presbytery. As I approach my seventh year in ordained ministry, I will be committing the next nine-months to earn a Master of Arts in Christian Education on the seminary’s residential campus.
I look forward to meeting you.
WE’RE OPEN DURING CONSTRUCTION!
We are very excited about the renovation of our “Welcome Corridor.”
Next Fall, we will have an enlarged office foyer with push-button accessible exterior doors, a spacious new community room, new bathrooms, nursery, and heating/air conditioning.
In the meantime, we will continue our worship, missions, and ministries.
When you arrive for worship, people and signs will direct you.
You may enter the Fellowship Hall through the front doors (to the left as you face the front of the building) or the back doors (by the kitchen).
Additional accessible parking spaces will be designated at the back of the building for easier access to the back door.
A “drop-off” spot will be set up at the overhang outside the back door.
To reduce traffic congestion, all cars driving to the back of the building will be directed in a clockwise direction. Drive to the back of the facility by passing the Fellowship Hall and return to the front by driving past the sanctuary.
The sanctuary, parlor, coffee room, office, front bathrooms, and preschool will not be accessible. The doors to the sanctuary and office foyer will be locked.
The Nursery will be in its usual place.
Kellie and her friends will welcome our littlest ones to their familiar playroom during the worship services.
Sunday School and Christian Education Programs are beginning in October.
Children and Youth Sunday School Begins Sunday, October 7, 9am-9:45am
Adult Christian Education programs starts on October 7, 9:00-9:45 in the Beck Room
First Sunday Mission Support Continues.
On the first Sundays of the month, we will continue to collect non-perishable food for Bainbridge Community Center Food Pantry and contributions for 5¢-a-Meal. Fairly Traded coffee and chocolate will continue to be on sale on the first Sunday of the month.
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.
