At BMPC we seek to be engaged in mission through opportunities for service, education and advocacy. Throughout the year we welcome mission partners locally and from around the world to update us on their work and to help us better understand the ways they are working for transformation in the world. As a congregation, we also have regular opportunities and well as special events that allow our members and friends to connect one on one with our mission partners in their context as well as work side by side with each other in service.

Next Steps Build Day with Habitat for Humanity
Sunday, October 3, 4:00 p.m.
BMPC Front Lawn
The Next Steps Step Stool program is an innovative way for volunteers to continue to connect with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s vision of a city where all Philadelphians live in safe, affordable homes. Step stools can assist residents in reaching high objects safely, particularly the aging-in-place residents Habitat works with in the Home Repair Program.
Join us as we build alongside one another, on Sunday afternoon October 3 outside and socially distanced in front of the church. Completed step stools will be returned to Habitat Philadelphia to be distributed to families as needed.
This is a family friendly event, so folks of all ages are invited to join us to build. You can invite a friend and plan to build together, or we will put small teams together to build that afternoon.
We will have fun as we build and paint, remembering Habitat homeowners and how vital it is that everyone has a place that is safe, warm, and dry to call home.
