THE PURPOSE OF KIDS LOVING CHRIST IS TO ENABLE OUR CHILDREN TO BECOME A DYNAMIC FORCE OF BELIEVERS, FILLED WITH GOD'S SPIRIT, ABLE TO MINISTER TO OTHERS IN JESUS' NAME. IT IS OUR DESIRE THAT OUR CHILDREN KNOW AND LOVE GOD PERSONALLY.
WE LIVE IN A FRACTURED AND BROKEN WORLD WHERE WE SOMETIMES NEED A LOVING AND NURTURING COMMUNITY, ONE WHERE WE FEEL CARED FOR IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AT BCC WE HOPE TO PROVIDE THAT KIND OF CARE THROUGH OUR CAREGIVING MINISTRY.
WE BELIEVE THAT OUR YOUTH ARE NOT JUST THE CHURCH OF TOMORROW, BUT THAT THEY ARE THE CHURCH OF TODAY. TO THIS END, WE PLACE A HIGH VALUE IN PROVIDING A SAFE PLACE FOR STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE A GROWING RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
GOD IS ON A MISSION TO RECONCILE AND RESTORE ALL OF CREATION TO A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH HIMSELF. AS PART OF HIS CHURCH, WE ARE CALLED AND EQUIPPED TO PARTICIPATE IN THOSE AREAS OF MISSION WHICH LIE AT OUR DOORSTEP AS WELL AS THOSE IN THE FAR CORNERS OF THE EARTH.
TO HELP US MORE FULLY EMBODY A BIBLICAL COMMUNITY, WE WANT TO BECOME A GREENHOUSE OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH.
BELLINGHAM COVENANT PRESCHOOL IS A CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL WITH EMPHASIS ON APPRECIATING AND EXPLORING GOD'S CREATION, INTERACTING WITH OTHER CHILDREN, AND PREPARATION FOR KINDERGARTEN.
We are currently engaged in an extended sermon series which covers the basic story of the Bible...from Genesis through Revelation. We're thrilled to explore the Scriptures to see how God’s interaction creation and humanity has led to His redemptive plans for all.
We’ll view the entire Bible holistically and as an integrated account of “God’s story”. Ultimately, all of human history is God's story. The complete story of the Bible is important because it helps us to be shaped by this history that tells the truth about our world. This story line leads from creation, to humanity’s fall into sinful brokenness, to offering redemption through Jesus Christ, and lastly restoring God's world in the fullness of time.
We’ll view the entire Bible as the story of God’s people – demonstrated both through the nation of Israel and ultimately through His Church. Jesus and the good news he announces is the fulfillment of the history that unfolds in the Old Testament. The Jews knew that this story was leading up to a culmination when God would act decisively to both save and judge the world. Jesus announces that he is the goal of this redemptive story. The church is essential to this Gospel. Jesus launched a community of people to be the visible presence of a “New Society”, set apart from, but engaged with this world.
Lastly, we’ll apply God’s story and the story of His people to our individual lives. We believe that this is where the Bible has been timely and practical for each generation of Jesus followers. Each individual may find his or her own life story given new life and changed by God’s redemptive story. As we apply the Bible in this way, we will prayerfully become individuals who are growing in Christ, equipped to live as a light through His church, to help bring hope through working for “His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven”.
