What is our Vision for the Future of BMPC? As the 150th anniversary of BMPC approaches in 2023, the 150th Vision Committee will facilitate a congregation-wide conversation to discern and affirm future directions for BMPC’s ministry. Our process will begin with a series of public forums in May, followed by focus groups in the fall and a congregational survey in early 2023. Our hope is for every member to share their views and vision for the future.
Please contact Liz Ellis at LizEllis@bmpc.org to reserve a place at one of the following public forums:
