Our Activities at BPC​

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN

While all women church members are “Presbyterian women”, we are blessed to have an active and dedicated Presbyterian Women group (“PW”) which meets on the second Monday of most months for an interactive Bible Study and lively business meeting.

Our Bible Study is ably led by Armour Shin, who introduces a wide range of reference sources to our carefully selected curriculum.  We are encouraged to ask questions and offer opinions.

The business meeting helps coordinate the many activities and needs that PW provides within our church, our community, and our world.  From converting men’s shirts into hospital gowns, sewing baby gowns and knitting baby caps, to support of local works including LACare and the Christian Women’s Job Corps in cooperation with First Baptist Church, we are a busy and active group.

We are not all work and no play, however!  Each December we have our Christmas Party, which is a combination of fabulous food, a fun White Elephant Gift Exchange, and an opportunity to contribute to our Red Stocking Fund, which helps underwrite our many projects.  Each July we plan a No-Host Lunch at a local restaurant, at which time we present our PW Lifetime Member Award to one deserving lady. PW does not meet in August.

We cordially invite you to join this warm group of women for study, fellowship, and good works.

MEN OF THE CHURCH

The Men of the Church group is not currently meeting and is being reorganized.  Please check back for information on future meetings.  Traditionally, a breakfast group gathers the first Sunday of each month at 8:00 a.m. at the church and then goes to a local restaurant for breakfast, a devotional, a brief business meeting, and discussion of men’s interests. We are pretty low key but always keep an eye out for tasks to do around the church.  In addition, we collect contributions for special church needs and for local charities including LACare and the Boys & Girls Club of Burnet, as well as supplies for local school children.

The Men of the Church serves the Lord in many ways, some with fanfare and some quietly
