LIFE TOGETHER

At Bellingham Covenant Church we want to see men and women grow a vibrant faith in Christ!  

But this doesn’t happen solo. 

We need one another to learn with and from, to test and experience gifts and talents, to enlarge our vision of God and faith.  It’s out of this desire to help one another that we have something called Life Together.  

Life Together meets Sunday mornings from 11:00-12:00 and provides opportunities for adults to learn, serve, and grow in relationship with God and others.  We have found a unique rhythm that helps us break up the year into manageable classes and experiences.   

  • Phase 1 is built around classes that run 5-6 weeks. Participants will enjoy topics that are centered on the Bible and practical Christian living.

  • Phase 2 incorporates a variety of one-time opportunities where our adults have the chance to participate in social events and service projects.

  • The Lent Series happens during the 6 weeks that lead up to Easter. As a church, we preach on a specific theme and then gather in small groups after the service to further discuss the topic.

We’d love for you to take advantage of the opportunities we’re providing this year!  It’s our honor to journey with you as your walk with Christ and get to know some great people! 

If you have questions or want to jump in and help, contact Janet Russell. 


Winter Life Together—Phase 1 Classes

January 13-February 17, 11-NOON


PREPARING FOR CHANGE IN JOHN 13-17:

WHAT JESUS WANTED HIS DISCIPLES TO KNOW

Jesus had a few hours to be with his disciples before his arrest ad crucifixion. How did he prepare them for the biggest transition of their lives? How does Jesus prepare them for the personal, corporate, and external challenges that they would face in the days ahead? John 13-17 will encourage you, and show you what Jesus’ priorities are for you when you experience change or upheaval as an individual and for us as a church.

This discussion class will be facilitated by a variety of teachers. Our goal is for you to engage deeply with God’s Word and discover how you can apply it in your own life.

 PRAYING FOR BCC & BEYOND

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks….” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

We all know that praying is important. This is an opportunity to participate in praying for Bellingham Covenant Church: our vision, heart, and ministries, our Lead Team, Search Committee, Transition Team, staff, and those in need. We will also be praying for our ministries and missionaries beyond our walls, the global Church, our community and the world.

Prayer is powerful and effective. When we pray, God hears and responds. Dennis and Bonnie Lancaster will facilitate this time that can make a lasting impact on the church and the world!

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” (Colossians 4:2)

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.

With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:18)
