I realized as I was walking out the door on Sunday I forgot to announce this coming Sunday (1/19) is the pulpit exchange for the Chagrin Valley Council of Churches. I will be preaching at the United Methodist Church of Chagrin Falls and Rev. Deborah Austin-Sanders will be preaching here at Bainbridge UCC. It's always exciting to hear new voices and I am sure Rev. Austin-Sanders will give a great message.

Pastor Brian
                                                                     THANK YOU
Thanks to everyone who stuck around for the de-greening of the church on Sunday! I went into the board meeting thinking I would be helping after and never got the chance because everything was done! Also a belated thanks to Greg and Terri Schaefer for setting up AND tearing down the out door nativity. This congregation continues to amaze me in its dedication to making things happen!
Thanks for being awesome,
Pastor Brian

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.

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.


Muriel Lampert has been discharged from the rehab facility and is back at the Pines at Brooks House. See below for contact information. 

Remember our house bound!
Please remember our church family who are housebound. 
         If you can't visit, a phone call or card could be the the highlight of their day!
