BPBC Essentials

Construction Updates and Notices

Throughout the exciting construction of our new worship center and children’s area, we want to help everyone be aware of location changes, parking notices, and safety updates. We will communicate all of these items through the “BPBC Essentials” campaign. So be sure to read all of our BPBC Essentials closely!

August 13, 2017 Update
New Atlanta Highway Entrance Is Open!

We are extremely excited that our new entrance off of Atlanta Hwy is now open for use on Sunday and Wednesdays. This entrance is now our main access to all of our back parking lots and will easily support a heavy flow of traffic. The Wallis Road entrance is fully paved and ready for use every day and our entrance off Curt Lance Way will be opening soon. In an agreement with the DOT, we have closed the Venue entrance and the small entrance off Atlanta Hwy. We still have a shuttle and walk lane (not for vehicles) from the Venue to the Annex. Things are really moving! As always, thank you for your patience.

The Amazing Collection
Led by Ermadine Flowers & Paula Moore

Whether you have 30 minutes a day or an hour, this study is for you!

The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
Led by Renee Kelley, Ruthie Pirkle & Linda Touchton
September 11 – October 23
Connection Room ~ 6:30 pm | Cost: $15

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning enemy seeks to wreck havoc on everything that matters to you- your emotions, your mind, your family, your future. But, when the enemy meets a woman dressed for the occasion, he fails miserably. This study will challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life!


Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler
Led by Renee England
September 12 – October 31st
FH 108/110 ~ 9:30 am | Cost: $15

There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast Love.

In this 8 Week Bible study, learn to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts.


Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer
Led by Deborah Mason & Linda Touchton
September 7 – October 19
FH 108/110 ~ 9:30 am | Cost: $15

Do you feel that the ability to hear God’s voice is for other people and not you? Is it only for people who lived in the biblical times? Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will understand. Come and discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.
