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.

Upcoming Events

Women’s May Mini Bible Study:


Those we love or mentor or even we ourselves may wrestle with the multifaceted issues associated with our sexualized culture. If we haven’t personally experienced its impact on our lives, our marriages, our homes, our churches, our campuses, or our workplaces, then we know someone who has. We need fresh answers. And God has them.  For every woman, married or single, young or old, Judy Rossi's three mini-sessions on God’s divine design for love, marriage, and sex will be informative, relevant, and encouraging. She will focus on what’s right with God’s divine design (especially in our current culture), why His design works (even in our current culture), how to operate within His divine design (despite our current culture), and what happens when we choose to operate apart from it (in concert with our current culture). Join us, and let these sessions provide help, hope, and healing—and maybe even a little laughter! 

Tuesdays May 1, 8 and 15 from 9:30am to 12pm in the Student Auditorium at BCC. Register HERE. Childcare provided. 

*Age 14 and over. Moms, please use your discretion when attending this session with your teenage daughters. Thank you.

Women's Fiction Book Club

Join us Monday, May 4 at 7pm. We will be skyping with the author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, at the meeting as this book was inspired by her life story. The book, Through the Deep Waters, is about a 17-year old girl with a dark past who cannot accept anyone’s love for her. Can she ever accept the gift of love that she so desperately needs? We meet off-site so email bookclub@burkecommunity.com for more info. 

Women's Non Fiction Book Club

We know our battle is not against flesh and blood. Join us Thursday, May 24 at 7pm at BCC as we discuss how to arm ourselves for battle with Chip Ingram’s The Invisible War: What Every Believer Needs to Know about Satan, Demons, and Spiritual Warfare.
