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.
Beginning June 3, Sunday morning worship will be at 10:00 a.m. in our Fellowship Hall.
A new casual outdoor worship celebration will be held at the amphitheater in the “woods” behind our Preschool playground.
Start your Sunday mornings with a worship celebration in our amphitheater behind the preschool playground.. Although seating is provided, you’re welcome to bring your own lawn chair.
There will be plenty of music and a message along the theme of “Stories My Sunday School Teacher Told Me.”
We will join our children in singing a special Cherub Song each week before they are excused to Godly Play in the preschool playground.
INCLEMENT WEATHER? No problem! We will meet together under the portico behind the Fellowship Hall.
Come experience worship in God’s beautiful creation, right in our own back year.

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.
