Sunday, February 2, 2020 is the date set by the Central Planning Board for the Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting.  We will gather in the social hall following the worship service.  The principal item on the agenda is the presentation and adoption of the budget for 2020.  All members of Bainbridge Community United Church of Christ are encouraged to attend and take part in the important business decisions in the life of this church. 

Congregational packets were available for pick-up on Sunday January 19th.  Those that were not picked up were mailed on Monday, January 20th. 

On Saturday we had our "My Kid's Out, Now What" seminar. Three panelists and 5 participants shared stories, expressed solidarity with struggles, and heard how to approach affirmation from a biblical perspective. Thanks to the entire congregation for being willing to have the event at the church, and also a special thanks to Lisa Ruzga and Ellen Klaiber for volunteering snacks and beverages.

We will continue to have various seminars in the future with Domestic Violence and Infant Care already in the works. We don't have a date for either, but be on the look out for them soon.

Visitation Workshop

Have you felt God's call to visit with home bound and sick folk, but don't feel fully prepared? We will be hosting a Visitation Training Workshop on February 22nd from 10am - noon. The instructor for the workshop will be Rev. Tyler Delaney. Tyler is an ordained Disciples of Christ Minister and has worked as a chaplain in the Cleveland Clinic system since his ordination in 2008. He will help folks feel empowered to carry out this vital mission of care and compassion. Please let Pastor Brian know if you plan on attending. Attendance is NOT a commitment, so if you are curious but unsure please attend to hear what visitation is all about to aid in your discernment.
