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 sUMMER bIBLE STUDY

    wEDNESDAYS MAY 23 TO JUNE 27 FROM 7-9PM

    rEGISTER here. CHILDCARE PROVIDED.

    We will be studying Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler - a 6 week Bible study.  We encourage you to attend all the sessions, but we also encourage you to come when you are available.  We will have a different teacher/facilitator each week.  Books are available for $15. Register online by clicking HERE.  Childcare available.


    There are times when worship overflows easily and effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. Yet, there are other times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing left to offer. We are tired, or thirsty, or imprisoned in our own chains through our own devices, or caught in the waves of a tumultuous sea. This is when God shows us His steadfast love. Questions? Email oasis@burkecommunity.com.
