Our mission and ministry flows out of our worship. Each Sunday, we gather to worship with reverence, relevance, openness, and joy. Bon Air is a family friendly church and children are welcomed in worship. Activity bags are available for children from an usher. Childcare for infants through two year olds is available in our nursery. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month and other feast days and special occasions. All baptized persons are welcome at the Lord’s Table.
Music is an import part of our worship. We sing God’s praises and enter into God’s presence with wonder and thanksgiving. Our choir and bell choir lead us at the 11:00 a.m. service.

WHEN WORDS FAIL
Practical Ministry to People with Dementia and Their Caregivers
Begins Sunday, June 4, at 9:45 a.m.
Millions of Americans live with dementia today and that number is expected to triple in the next thirty years. Often, when words begin to fail for people with dementia, they also fail for those around them, who don’t know what to say or what to do.
Join Pastor Janet for a four-week discussion based on the DVD produced by Westminster Canterbury, Richmond, and learn ways to reach out to people living with dementia and bring joy and spiritual nourishment even after words have failed. Develop a better understanding of how to visit and support, not only people living with dementia, but their caregivers, too.
Invite friends and family who would like greater insight and practical caring skills to help support those whose memories are fading as well as those they love.
During July and August worship, we will be singing our favorite hymns. Take a look through our hymnal and pick up to three hymns to recommend. Please send the titles of hymns, found in our hymnal, to Pastor Janet at email@example.com before Sunday, June 18. You may also call the church office at 272-7514.
The mission of our Christian Education program is to support spiritual growth by providing relevant educational experiences that open our hearts and minds to the joy of life in Christ. Education programs are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. for children, youth and adults.
Adult Education – The goals of adult education are to foster spiritual growth and increase fellowship, in small group settings, where a variety of opportunities are provided to explore scripture, history, theological diversity and contemporary issues while respecting and nurturing faith and reaching out to the community to gain connectedness.
Children and Youth – Our Christian Education classes are designed to help children and youth discover their faith, develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and demonstrate God’s love to the world.
Enrichment Program – After the “Children’s Conversation” during the 11:00 worship hour, young children are invited to a special program with stories, crafts, and fun.
Youth Fellowship – PYC (Presbyterian Youth Connection) In addition to the Sunday School opportunity, the youth at BAPC can participate in a weekly youth program that includes social activities, service projects, seasonal retreats and camp (Camp Hanover, Montreat, and Massanetta).
Confirmation Class- As numbers and age warrant, Bon Air offers young people an opportunity to become full members of the church family by completing a nineteen week confirmation class which teaches them about the responsibilities and meaning of church membership.
Join us Sunday mornings this fall as our Sunday School will be learning and growing with a new curriculum from the PCUSA. Growing in Grace & Gratitude is rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity where God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship; extends an invitation to discipleship that inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love; and reaches beyond Sunday morning, encouraging children to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace. We look forward to growing in grace and gratitude together!
