Connection Center

Our online connection center is our way of describing everything that is available for you and your family to serve and grow in faith. We’re a vibrant church with God-centered ministries and Jesus-loving people. That means we are active, enthusiastic and enjoy spending time with one another, living out the Bible. From Sunday school classes to small groups, children and student events, volunteer opportunities and everything in between you can find it here.

Lenten Study at Bonhomme

BASED ON HOW TO PRAY, A SIMPLE GUIDE FOR NORMAL PEOPLE
 
Lent: the season when we reflect on the humility of Jesus and go deep into ourselves to be closer to Him is upon us. During Lent Bonhomme will be devoting prayer, study and conversation to the Alpha Prayer Course, based on Pete Greig’s book How to Pray, A Simple Guide for Normal People.
 
The Alpha Prayer Course will meet on Wednesday nights beginning March 4 at 6:30 p.m. in Steffen Hall. Through Pete Greig’s video teaching and small group conversation, the Alpha Prayer Course will guide us in learning why we pray, types of prayer, unanswered prayer, listening and spiritual warfare, and provide a safe place to practice what we’ve learned.
 
Copies of How to Pray, A Simple Guide for Normal People will be available in the Book Nook and on Sunday mornings in late February. To join us in this Lenten journey in the Alpha Prayer Course register HERE or on Sunday mornings in late February. Childcare will be provided, please list the age and name of your child/children when registering.

 

Summer Play at Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out

The Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out Summer Play program provides an opportunity for children (ages six months through those who have completed pre- kindergarten) to explore fun topics in a learn-through-play setting.
A typical day might include books and stories, creative art projects, music and movement, and interactive learning experiences. It is a wonderful way to re-connect with friends over the long summer months or make new friends before school starts again in the fall.
REGISTRATION: Open enrollment begins March 4. Forms are available HERE. 
SESSION: Each camp session is Tuesday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. COST: $75 per session for the first child; $65 for each additional child.

 

Plates and a Program

The Bonhomme SEALS Ministry is excited to host a special program for people of all ages presented by Kathy Evans. Kathy is a local, personal historian and an experienced writer of life histories, including memoirs and autobiographies. Kathy will present a simple and logical strategy to approach writing a personal history, be it your story, that of your parent or grandparent. Each person, no matter how ordinary, has extraordinary memories to share. Call Irma, 636-532-3486, to make a lunch reservation no later than Monday, March 2. Cost: $8.
 

Night of Worship to Remember

After a successful evening worship service last year, you are invited to another Night of Worship here at Bonhomme. With music by professional worship leader, Graydon Tomlinson, we hope you are able to fully enter a time soaked in scripture, song, prayer and celebration of Communion while joining others in praise and worship in Steffen Hall.
Graydon has been singing since his days in the choir loft as a kid, and a leading worshiping professional since 2005. He spent several years as a worship leader at NewSpring Church (the fourth largest church in America) and currently serves as Director of Modern Worship at First Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC and as a conference musician, leading worship at several conferences around the southeast annually. He has a special passion for revitalizing old hymns and using them as a powerful worship tool.
Last year, we were led in song and scripture by Graydon and we are excited to welcome his return to Bonhomme. Graydon will also lead worship on Sunday morning at 8:30 am in the Sanctuary and 11 am in Steffen Hall. Bring a friend, family member or neighbor and worship with us.
