Grandparent’s Day and Trunk or Treat
Friday, October 27th is going to be a busy BUT awesome day for BCA.  In the morning, we get the  opportunity to honor and bless some of our favorite people – GRANDPARENTS!  The program will start at 10:30am and will be held in the Worship Center.  Unless your child’s teacher has told you otherwise, students will need to wear their DRESS UNIFORMSThen in the evening, our PTF  is working hard to coordinate and plan our annual Trunk or Treat.  The Trunk or Treat is not only one of our favorite family events of the year, but also serves as a fundraiser for our 8th graders who go to DC in the Spring.  If you will be doing a trunk or have a chili you would like to submit into the contest or just provide, please complete this form by THIS FRIDAY!

Poinsettias for Washington
The 8th graders are selling poinsettias to help raise money to fund their trip to Washington, D.C.  in the spring.  The plants are high quality and grown locally, coming in either red or white.  Poinsettias can be purchased in 6″ pots with foil/4-6 bracts ($12) or 8″ pots with foil/10-14 bracts ($20).  If there is a specific student that you would like to help support please let them know.  We will not be selling at Trunk or Treat this year but there will be an order form at the BCA front desk if you would like to place an order.  The deadline to place an order is November 17th and they will arrive on November 29th for the students to deliver.

BCA Spirit Wear
Now that we are finally getting some cooler temps, visit our spirit wear store! Place your order before Friday, October 27th to grab some great fall BCA spirit wear.

Parents in Prayer

She may be quiet but she’s a warrior and her prayers can move mountains.”  The same could be said for his prayers 🙂  Not sure who said this but what a testament to the power of prayer.  It is more important now than ever that we are being intentional about praying for our children so please join us for Parents in Prayer on Thursday mornings at 7:30am.  If you cannot make it and have a prayer request, please complete this form. We consider it a privilege to pray for you.
