Sunday, May 16 | All In Class
Find your place at Bon Air Baptist Church! Be a part of our community and grow into the person God wants you to be. Go ALL IN!
This class is for those curious to learn about our mission, vision, and culture and for those interested to join our membership.
Interested in Baptism? If you have made a decision to follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and want to be baptized as an outward display of your inward commitment, then let’s make it happen!
At Bon Air Baptist Church, we baptize by immersion, immersing the entire body in water. If this is your first time deciding to follow Jesus or you have not been immersed before, we would be honored to baptize you. We offer baptism opportunities in several ways – during a Sunday service, private baptism during the week and twice a year an outdoor baptism event. Questions? Email us at email@example.com
Tuesdays | Emotionally Healthy Relationships
Sundays | Jonah
Pastor Mac Jordan | April 18 | 6:30 p.m. | Zoom | 6 weeks
At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?
