Greetings BCUCC,

As we enter the Thanksgiving season it seems appropriate to send out some thank yous. First off, thanks to everyone who sent prayers and cards to my wife Debbie and our family as she went through her surgery. It went very well and she is recuperating . It meant a lot to all of us to see the love and support coming from our great faith community.

Second a BIG thank you to Rita Langer and Barb Gamble for organizing our picture days last month. It's a cumbersome thing to put on and also quite stressful, they both did amazing jobs lining everything up, from paper work, updating databases, and calling folks. Everything went great and many folks have already received their pictures.

Also, while the registration has not come out, it has been announced on Facebook that one of the winter classes for the Northeast Ohio School of Ministry (NEOSOM) is going to be New Testament One. The course description is not out, but most likely it will be a gospels focused class. The instructor is Rev. Dan Doty and classes will be held Tuesdays, Jan. 14-March 3, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. and will be online. If memory serves the cost to audit (meaning just take it to learn not worry about class work and credit) is $65. If you are looking to get some in depth learning about the Gospels from the comfort of your own home, this is a great opportunity.

I hope everyone stays warm and cozy as winter approaches,


November 17th
Join us for lunch and fellowship after worship.



MISSION SUNDAY SERVICE will be held in the sanctuary as a regular weekly service.

Bring your toy donations where they will be  
 collected and blessed during the service.
