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.

  • honor god 24/7 women's community group

    This community group offers an opportunity for Christian women to connect and explore ways they can better integrate their faith "24/7" in the workplace, home and church.

    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 discussions, we will build each other up in such areas as living out our faith on the job, and seeing that ever elusive "work-life balance". Come join us and share in the dialogue as we meet one Saturday morning each month.

    Join us Saturday, July 27, 10am-noon in Room 202! For more information, email us at workingwomen@burkecommunity.com

  • Body & soul faith and fitness classes

    Join us Mondays and Fridays at 5:30am at BCC. We believe that fitness involves more than just your body – we care about the health of your body and your soul. It’s where faith and fitness meet! Email bodyandsoul@burkecommunity.com, and get more information at bodyandsoul.org.
