women's ministry

The Women's Ministry at BCC strives to help women connect with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and with other women, in every season of life, in every level of faith, and above all else, in love. We encourage this connection through inter-generational Bible studies, discipleship, fellowship, and service opportunities.

  • Women's Fiction book club

    Join us on August 28 at 7pm (off-site) to discuss Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette. Email bookclub@burkecommunity.com for more information. 

    Synopsis: Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all. To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she's only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh? 

  • Honor god 24/7|work 9-5

    Join us at BCC (Room 202) for a coffee break conversation with women in the workplace on Saturday, September 8 from 9-12pm. Breakfast included in $10 event cost. Register HERE (opens August 5).

    With so many competitors for our time, we can sometimes compartmentalize our work, in terms of how we serve God in supporting the church, and what we do in our daily jobs. In our discussion, we will review ideas from the book “God at Work” by Ken Costa and highlight some additional topics as a framework for conversation. We will also hear some testimonies from women connecting their work to their faith. Topics include: what God says about work in the Bible, how to live out our faith on the job, and seeking that ever elusive “work-life balance.” This “coffee break” is designed to be a structured conversation. Come join us and share in the dialogue!
