Connection Center

Our online connection center is our way of describing everything that is available for you and your family to serve and grow in faith. We’re a vibrant church with God-centered ministries and Jesus-loving people. That means we are active, enthusiastic and enjoy spending time with one another, living out the Bible. From Sunday school classes to small groups, children and student events, volunteer opportunities and everything in between you can find it here.

This Month

Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out Registration for 2018-2019 School Year  

Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out offers a wonderful experience for children ages six months through Junior Kindergarten. We have many options and times available each day of the week, 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m., and we would love to talk with you about the opportunity to care for your child or grandchild.
Our school offers a loving, nurturing Christian environment where young children grow spiritually, cognitively, physically, emotionally, and socially. We believe that children learn best through play and hands–on experiences.  Kids Day Out (KDO) classrooms are staffed by experienced caregivers and are equipped with developmentally appropriate materials.
Preschool classrooms are carefully structured so children have a healthy balance between child-centered and teacher directed activities. Our preschool schedule also includes Music/Bible, Physical Education, Spanish, and Art Appreciation.
Brochures and registration cards are available in the lobby outside of Steffen Hall and in Kilby Commons.  
January 8: Bonhomme Church members in the School Office
January 23: Current and former Preschool and Kids Day Out families in Steffen Hall
January 24:  Registration opens to the community in Steffen Hall Lobby
Please spread the word about our amazing program!
For more information or to schedule a tour of the facility, please contact Sharon Rinklin at 636-778-9315 or visit HERE
 

Missional Community Chapel Service on January 21

Church in the Chapel…this is what our Missional Community does once each month. Come join us Sunday morning.  We’ll “vision” together what God may have in store for us in 2018 as He has called us together to love one another and our neighbors in St. Louis County. All are welcome!
 
[Note: Kids will participate in the Children’s Sermon time downstairs as usual.]
 

Congregational Meeting Called

Last month, attendance at the Congregational Meeting on December 31, did not have enough members represented to officially have a quorum. Therefore, we have rescheduled the meeting so that enough Bonhomme members are present to vote for new leadership roles to be filled. The location has been changed, so make sure you join us in Steffen Hall!
 

Join us for Food, Fellowship and Fun

Each month, Bonhomme is proud to host a community potluck to help create fellowship and friendships across our church family.
 
So, bring that crockpot (or salad or dessert) and sit down, relax, and spend time with us.
 

Bonhomme Foundation Accepting Grant Applications

Our Bonhomme Foundation is seeking grant requests for 2018. If you have a worthy cause, check out the grant application form online and submit it by February 15 for consideration.
 
The Foundation purpose is to provide meaningful financial support to endeavors which spread the gospel and care for the less fortunate, with priority given to those which are new or innovative and not currently supported by Bonhomme’s mission budget.
 
Applications are available at bonpres.org/give at the bottom of the page. Send completed applications to Bonhomme. Grants will be awarded in March.
 

Calling ALL Men!

We promise to wrap up by 9:30. We want men to be able to get home early to be with their families.

The conversation will be led by Pastor Phil Hargrove and will focus on the kinds of events and projects the men of Bonhomme can work on together to further the work of Christ in the community. They could even be entirely within Bonhomme, but we hope this will be an important chance to do more mission work. Every idea will be worthy of serious consideration. Phil will introduce the concepts then we will break into small groups to brainstorm ideas.

Unlike previous breakfasts this one will be complementary, although contributions to help cover expenses will be appreciated. We will not be selling tickets but still need to know how many are likely to come to make sure we have enough food. So please email Bob Buchanan,  and let him know that you are coming, or just thinking about it. Be sure to invite your friends too! >Email
