July Events

Doing Summer Together

The Priority of Reaching People

Summer at Christ Place Church is best shared with friends and neighbors. Impacting our neighbors and our world can only happen if we are willing to do life together. In your neighborhood, who can you invite to your home to share a meal? At the park, who can you give a water bottle and invite to Christ Place? On vacation, who can you connect with and have a gospel conversation?

Your Place

All-New Guest & New Member Class

A 4-Week Journey To Discover Your Place Here.

If you have been visiting our church or have recently become a member, we want to invite you to an all-new opportunity to find your place at BPBC. Every single person is important to us. We believe God has brought you here on purpose, for a purpose. Your Place is a 4-week journey that will show you valuable information and insights about yourself and our church. It begins with a lunch with Pastor Jeff and then moves to a classroom setting. If you are interested in attending, please register through the link below. For more information, please contact Kelly Edwards at

Childcare is provided, and you may drop your children off at the Preschool Desk by 12:45pm on the day of the first class. The following three weeks of classes will be during the 11am worship and BF hour so your children will already be in a class, and you can pick them up as usual on these days. We look forward to spending some time with you as you seek to learn more about the ministries we offer here and get connected to your church home!
