Women's Bible Study - The Quest
January 16th - February 27th, 2018
There Is No Quest Without Questions
The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt, and is an invitation to vulnerability and intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. We see the people of God asking questions of their Creator, and we see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.
Accept the invitation and 6 week challenge if you want to:
- Deepen your intimacy with God as you ask, discuss and ponder questions of faith
- Take comfort in remembering this world is only a temporary stay until we reach our heavenly home
- Understand that questions are inherent and essential to growth
LIJ Mission Trips | Houston
June 17th - June 22nd, 2018
As America watched news unfold in August of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, hearts broke for the lives lost and affected by this massive storm. In response to this immense need, BLC is partnering with Youthworks to provide an opportunity for high school students to serve the Houston area as they rebuild. YouthWorks is partnering with local organizations and people who have made clear their need for help and support. High school students will have the opportunity to be a part of a short-term project that is part of a large-scale and long-term commitment of Youthworks to partnering with the Southeast Texas area as they rebuild.
The trip will take place June 17-22, 2018. If the group decides to travel by van, the group will need to leave very early on June 16 and potentially return late on the 23rd.
This trip will be open to students who are currently in high school (9th-12th grade). Adult leadership has already been established. The total cost will either be $550 (for van transportation) or $700-900 (for flight). Once the group is assembled, those who have committed will decide as a group whether they will drive or fly.
Please note that there are only 12 spots available for this trip so sign up early. To commit, sign up below and pay the $100 deposit. Registration closes on November 12.
