Learning & Service

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.
