Amanda Calloway is handling PRAYER REQUESTS for the church to be sent via email to the BMBC Family. If you have a request, please send it to her at or call 336-877-7801. If you would like to be added to this group, put your email address on the tear off portion of the bulletin and place it in the offering plate.

Smoke detectors are available free of charge to anyone (inside or outside the church). Installation is free as well. Please contact Jerry Beck at 252-725-5692 if you are interested in getting one.

Please note that the PICNIC SHELTER must be reserved just like the Fellowship Hall. Call the church office if you would like to use it. Anyone who uses it must clean up and remove all trash from the premises.

Please do not park anywhere you see yellow paint in the church parking lot as it obstructs the view to get out into the road and could cause an accident.

Directory update — delivery sometime in March. We appreciate your continued patience.

If anyone is interested in Outreach / Visitation, please contact the church office or Ronnie Hopkins at 336-977-1070 or Jack Pugh at 336-620-1551.
