Classes at Bonhomme

Sunday Growth Hour (9:45 am)

Households of Faith [Don Everts, Room 3205]

From the beginning of time God intended for faith to be enjoyed, practices, and passed on in the context of extended families. But how exactly did God intend for that to work? And how can we practically put God’s vision for “households of faith” into practice today? Learn what the Bible has to say about healthy households of faith. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncles, or friend, it turns out you have an important role. There will be three discussion tables: 1. Kingdom Parents 2. Parents of youth 3. Household members who are friends or relatives.

Christians and Politics [Joan Brown, Room 3208]

If you are a mother of a preschooler, we hope you join us on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. We build circles of moms who love each other like family. Women around the world are starting MOPS groups in churches, hospitals, YMCAs, homes, coffee shops, correctional facilities and on military bases, and profound things are taking place. Our gatherings are where moms can meet to share their hopes, fears and insights, in a format that works with their schedules, that doesn’t neglect their faith nor their womanhood, their motherhood nor their purpose, their heart nor their mind. We provide you the resources to join a group, start your own, or become a member. Click HERE for details. Call Jennifer Keller at 636.532.3486 x 727 to reserve free childcare.
