Hop on the bus with us this coming Sunday at 12:30pm for the Compassion Experience - a shared church family experience!  We will travel from BCC to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Muskego for a traveling national, interactive exhibit designed to help us understand the life of children in developing countries.  An intergenerational activity or an outing for confirmands and their mentors that is free for all that attend! Rumor has it that there may be some fun activities on board the bus as well!  Return to church no later than 3:30 p.m. Please sign up via the all church Evite or on the bulletin board in the Narthex by Tuesday, August 23rd.  See Cathy Benjamin, Becca Hughes or Jenni Jones for more information.

Help frame a house or provide lunch for volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. Look soon for new signups coming in September. Contact Karen Ward if you are interested.(wardshouse@sbcglobal.net)
