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.
