Jesus once said, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3) The children of the BPC family have as much to teach the grown-ups as the grown-ups have to teach them, maybe more.
Kids are welcome!
When we say “All are welcome,” we mean kids too, of course! We love having kids participate in worship whenever they choose. You’ll find a play area toward the back of the sanctuary — kids can play there, hang out with you, or help themselves to our activity bags that include coloring pages, books, and more. On select Sundays we facilitate intergenerational worship where kids take a more active role in the service, but we love seeing their faces on any given Sunday!
After the Children's Sermon, kids can head downstairs for some thoughtful, playful time in the church gym.
The table is open to everyone! On communion Sundays, kids who have gone downstairs for children's time will be brought back to the sanctuary to share in the feast alongside their family.
Whenever we can, we think it's important for our kids to learn the values of service and sharing. Children of all ages are welcome to participate with their parents in our volunteer programs -- working on the rooftop garden, serving meals at Community Table, even serving as Ushers in worship.
