Classes at Bonhomme:

Please note, during the summer months, we have different summer programs. Our Growth Hour and Growth Night classes will resume in September.

Sunday Growth Hour (9:45 am)

Households of Faith – Through May 2019 | Room 3205 | Don Everts & Mary Oldfield.
How do you build and nurture spiritual vibrancy within your own household or any of the other households you are a part of? It turns out the biblical material and the latest research agree: a spiritually healthy household has each of these “vibrant variables”: spirituality, intimacy, and purpose. Come learn and experiment with practical ways to build these variables into your own household of faith.
 

How to Read the Bible for All its Worth – Beginning February 2019 | Room 3208 | Scott Martin

If you are a mother of a preschooler, we hope you join us on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. We build circles of moms who love each other like family. Women around the world are starting MOPS groups in churches, hospitals, YMCAs, homes, coffee shops, correctional facilities and on military bases, and profound things are taking place. Our gatherings are where moms can meet to share their hopes, fears and insights, in a format that works with their schedules, that doesn’t neglect their faith nor their womanhood, their motherhood nor their purpose, their heart nor their mind. We provide you the resources to join a group, start your own, or become a member. Click HERE for details. Call Jennifer Keller at 636.532.3486 x 727 to reserve free childcare.

A six-part video series featuring a dialogue between Pastor Rick Warren and the late Chuck Coulson.

Your worldview consists of the beliefs you build your life on. It determines how you view God, yourself, and other people. It includes thoughts about life and death; good and evil; pain and suffering; and past, present, and future. It determines how you think about your relationships, your time, and your money. Everything you think about life is shaped by your worldview. They discuss how the Christian worldview is unique among other choices
